Announcement   Welcome to Prayerworks Studio!

We specialize in making beautiful, handcrafted prayer beads and other tools to enhance your prayer life.

Our focus is on Protestant (Anglican) prayer beads, though we also make rosaries, chaplets, and just about anything else that might help you in your prayer life. All of our beads come packed in a gift bag and include a guide to using the beads and sample prayers, in case you're new to prayer beads.

If you want to learn more about Protestant prayer beads, check out my book, A Bead and a Prayer: A Beginner's Guide to Protestant Prayer Beads, published by Upper Room Books. Written in the form of a four-week Bible study, this book has won two awards: Book of the Year by the Christian Small Publisher Association, and Finalist for the 2014 USA Best Book Award.

We also have a second book, Another Bead, Another Prayer: Devotions for Use with Protestant Prayer Beads (Upper Room Books). My husband and I cowrote this book, which includes 28 prayers and offers a variety of ways to use the beads to connect with God.

My third book, Beads of Healing: Prayer, Trauma, and Spiritual Wholeness (Upper Room Books), will be published January 2017.

We have a website full of resources on prayer beads. I also maintain a blog where I write prayer bead devotions as well as discuss the history and use of prayer beads. You can connect with us at: www.prayerworksstudio.com.

We'd love for you to join us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/prayerworksstudio. Or follow us on Twitter: @abeadnaprayer and @prayerworksnews.

About

How will you listen to God today?

I hate to say that God told me to make prayer beads. It sounds a little kooky. Or maybe a lot kooky. But there it is: God told me to make prayer beads. And I listened.

Because for the past 20+ years I have been collecting prayer beads and other tools for prayer. And because I have a Master of Theological Studies that I wasn't really using much.

Because I am a Methodist girl who has always loved the ancient practices of the early church. And because I have never been very good at prayer, and God knew that one way to get me to pray was to put me in a position where I had to talk with people about prayer.

And because stuff that is both creative and spiritual makes my heart skip a beat.

So I listened and started making prayer beads. I opened up this shop. Now, I lead workshops and retreats. And my book, A Bead and a Prayer: A Beginner's Guide to Protestant Prayer Beads (Upper Room Books, 2013), was named 2014 Book of the Year by the Christian Small Publisher Association; and Finalist, 2014 USA Best Book Award. My second book, Another Bead, Another Prayer: Devotions for Protestant Prayer Beads (Upper Room Books, 2014), was co-authored with my husband and has been well-received.

The best part is, I've developed a comfort level with prayer. Who would have guessed?!

Have you listened to God today? If not, when? Where? How?
