This elastic prayer bracelet is perfect for quickly turning to prayer at any moment of the day. It is commonly used for recitation of the Jesus Prayer which is a brief, well known prayer practiced throughout the world. It is: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me.”
This bracelet may also be used for other brief prayers throughout the day which may be tailored to one’s circumstances. For example, one may repeatedly say the Lord while going around the bracelet, “Lord give me strength,” “Lord defend me,” “Jesus I need You,” or other such supplicatory prayers. Or, in other cases, one may say to Jesus our Bridegroom, “Jesus I love You,” “Jesus You’re all I want,” “Jesus You are sufficient for me,” or “Jesus I want to know You more.” Such repeated prayers may indeed open the flood gates of the soul for both the anxiety, emotion, and stress within to be poured out towards God, and for God to pour out His mercy, grace, tenderness, and consolation into our souls.
Note: the two tone pattern was unintentional, so we do not plan to offer it anymore once the current inventory expires. If you like it, get it while supplies last!
