I’ve got a few (actually a lot) of prayer beads but have used all of them as “Affirmation Beads”. This is the first set that I’ve consciously created for the purpose of prayer and have used it as such. I believe the following two pictures are self explanitory. If you’ve got an additional view of each of the “quarters” please let me know.
I feel that the order of prayer should be North to East to South to West. When my mother-in-law passed, I wanted to thank the Goddesses for her easy passing. I found myself using the beads “backwards”. From North to West and around.
You need to use/do what is right for your and your intentions.
Have a Hug Full Day,
