Video: How To Make Prayer Beads

I have heard from so many of you who have already made your own sets of prayer beads. That is great!

For those of you who are visual learners, or who want more guidance on how to make prayer beads, here is a link to a YouTube video. Made by The Upper Room for their 2011 Behold e-course, the video features me giving detailed instructions for how to make prayer beads.

  1. God bless you Kristen for sharing with others how to make your prayer beads. They are woderful prayer tools.

  2. I purchased some Christian prayer beads about 3 years ago. Didn’t know why I purchased them. Now I am drawn to use them but I don’t have any idea in the least how to use them. Could you help me?

  3. I just received my copy of A BEAD AND A PRAYER and can’t wait to go bead shopping. I attend Central United Methodist Church and had to miss the day they test your book. Thanks!

  4. What size seed beads are you using? I bought some prayer bead items from you not long ago. I bought some seed beads from Walmart, but they are not the same size. They are too small. They are labeled 11/0. Appreciate any help.

    • Dianne –

      I generally use size 8/0, though sometimes I use 6/0. An 11/0 would definitely be too small for the wire. I’m so glad you are making your own prayer beads!


  5. Thanks for the video! I had no idea how to make these, it was really informative and easy to follow. I can’t wait to get my kit. Thanks again!

  6. I just received my kit and within the half hour I made these pretty prayer beads all by myself! The directions were oh so simply put!
    Thank you Kristen for your book! I pray through out the day, my habit of many years, but I really desired a daily method of sorts to make my prayer life blossom. It was a blessing to read about your book on The Upper Room site!
    Thank you!
