Way back in 2010, having been Orthodox for a mere two years, I undertook the task of creating a guide on how to make an Orthodox prayer rope (komboskini or chotki in Greek and Russian, respectively).
At the time there were very few guides online, and the ones that could be found were, to be honest, not of the best quality.
Since the time that I first created my guide I have made many, many prayer ropes, some for myself, but mostly for others.
Since that time, I have also been ordained as a priest into the Holy Orthodox Church, under the omophorion of Metropolitan Alexios in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
A lot has changed, but my love for the beautiful practice of the prayer rope has not, and so I have finally gotten around to updating my guide! I have taken all new pictures, and have corrected and clarified different spots in the instructions.
You can find the updated guide by clicking the link to the Prayer Rope at the top of my page.
I hope that you will find it useful in your prayer life, and that God will have mercy on us all!
