Laning, Chris



Beads, pebbles, or some other small objects have probably been used to count prayers for as long as prayers have been counted. In fact, the English word “bead” for those small round objects on a string comes from the Old English work ebed, meaning ‘bid’, and originally meant as a prayer or requesty.
