A Bead and a Prayer introduces Protestant prayer beads to those with no experience praying with beads. This 4-week Bible study includes instructions for making your own prayer beads, explains the history of using beads as aids to prayer, offers a variety of prayers, and shows how to use the beads to listen to God.
"A BEAD AND A PRAYER is one of the most accessible and downright delightful books I have ever read on prayer itself, not to mention being far and away the most informative about the making and use of prayer beads. Vincent has given us a veritable treasure trove of history, practical counsel, and, most important, loving instruction."--Phyllis Tickle, founder of religion department, Publishers Weekly
