A prayer rope (Greek: κομποσκοίνι, Russian: вервица, четки, Romanian: mătănii, Serbian: бројаница, Bulgarian: броеница)
This prayer rope is the handiwork of nuns from an Orthodox Christian convent. The prayer rope itself, is a reminder for us of prayer, being united into a ring -- of continuous prayer. The weaving of prayer ropes in our monastery is done as an obedience, with a blessing from the Superior. Our nuns make them with the Jesus prayer.(That is, praying the Jesus prayer as they work.) Each knot on the prayer rope consists of 6 crosses. Carrying with you or wearing a prayer rope protects you through the power of the Holy and Life-giving Cross, according to your faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Praying with a prayer rope is an aid which helps to pacify the mind and to cleanse the heart of the passions. In Christianity, prayer ropes, or rosaries, appear no later than the IV century. It is believed that the initial form of the prayer rope was a rope with knots tied on it -- then called a “vervitsa”. Different sources indicate various personalities who have introduced the prayer rope into Christian practice. Most often, holy Pachomius the Great is mentioned. This makes a perfect gift for any of your friends who lead a Christian spiritual life.
