    This thread is for anyone to add prayers for rosary prayers and share our rosary stories, and resources. If you pray the rosary and have special concerns or prayers you would like to share with others, you can include them here.

    I will be praying the rosary and will include the prayers others request in my recitation. I hope others can join me.

    As there are many styles, please don't feel limited by either the method or types of prayers. It can be whatever style of rosary you prefer, whether Roman Catholic, Anglican, or even a prayer rope.

    I am including special prayers for the healing of physical, mental, spiritual and societal wounds due to the Alt-Right rally and resulting violence at Charlottesville, VA on August 12th.

    I also pray for the young woman, Ms. Heyer, who was intentionally killed and the police helicopter pilots, Lt. H. Jay Cullen & Trooper-Pilot Berke Bates who died in an accidental crash.

    Heavenly Father, in your Word you have given us a vision of
    that holy City to which the nations of the world bring their
    glory: Behold and visit, we pray, the cities of the earth.
    Renew the ties of mutual regard which form our civic life.
    Send us honest and able leaders. Enable us to eliminate
    poverty, prejudice, and oppression, that peace may prevail
    with righteousness, and justice with order, and that men and
    women from different cultures and with differing talents may
    find with one another the fulfillment of their humanity;
    through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. -BCP

    This week I will be including special prayers for the people in Sierra Leone who have died, were injured, or displaced by the mudslides and heavy rains affecting the capital city of Freetown. Around 600 people have been injured with estimates of 200-300 killed. I pray for those emergency workers who are helping others in providing medical treatment and recovery operations.

    O merciful Father, who hast taught us in thy holy Word that
    thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men:
    Look with pity upon the sorrows of thy servant for whom
    our prayers are offered. Remember him, O Lord, in mercy,
    nourish his soul with patience, comfort him with a sense of
    thy goodness, lift up thy countenance upon him, and give
    him peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.-BCP

    This week I will be praying the rosary for the people suffering from the effects of Hurricane Harvey making landfall in Texas. I pray for those who who have died or were injured during this storm. I also pray for the first responders and other public servants who are assisting others caught in the storm. May God see them safely through this time and may those who have lost family be comforted.

    Almighty God our heavenly Father, send down upon those
    who hold office in the state of Texas, the spirit of wisdom, charity, and justice;
    that with steadfast purpose they may faithfully serve in their
    offices to promote the well-being of all people; through Jesus
    Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP

    This week I will be praying the rosary for the people suffering from the effects of Hurricane Irma making landfall in several Caribbean islands and the state of Florida. I pray for those who who have died, were injured, or suffered a loss of their home or business due to Irma. I also pray for the public servants and private companies who are assisting those who are suffering. May God see them safely through this time and may those who have lost family or employment be comforted.

    O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and
    rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be
    our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee,
    to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou
    art God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP

    I got a wooden rosary from the group Dynamic Catholic about two years ago, but I didn't start praying it immediately. It took me a few months to get into it, but once I started, I never stopped. I have prayed the rosary every day for over a year, and it's my favorite devotion.

    I pray for Pope Francis' health and his intentions and for my family's wellbeing (and that they may convert), among other things. Whenever something such as a terrorist attack or natural disaster occurs, I make it a point to include the victims in my intentions.

    Thank you for your prayers Ide. I live in South Georgia. Our power finally came back on Wednesday and there are folks nearby who still have no power. God protected us though. We had trees fall but none on the house or cars. Our neighbors were safe too. Much better than they were projecting.

    I hope that things are back to normal for you in Georgia. I haven't had a chance to check in with this thread as I've been ill for a few weeks. It's been a rough few months for the Caribbean and southeast U.S. May God bless you and your family.

    This week I am praying in remembrance of St. Ignatius of Antioch who was martyred in Rome in 108 A.D. In this present day and age in which we find ourselves in a post-Christian culture may we remember his courage and devotion Christ. May we also remember those Christians in our own time, who throughout the world, face hostility, violence and persecution in these times for their faith in Jesus. May we remember the wisdom of the early church Fathers:

    "I have confidence of you in the Lord, that ye will be of no other mind. Wherefore I write boldly to your love, which is worthy of God, and exhort you to have but one faith, and one [kind of] preaching, and one Eucharist. For there is one flesh of the Lord Jesus Christ; and His blood which was shed for us is one; one loaf also is broken to all [the communicants], and one cup is distributed among them all: there is but one altar for the whole Church, and one bishop, with the presbytery and deacons, my fellow-servants. Since, also, there is but one unbegotten Being, God, even the Father; and one only-begotten Son, God, the Word and man; and one Comforter, the Spirit of truth; and also one preaching, and one faith, and one baptism; and one Church which the holy apostles established from one end of the earth to the other by the blood of Christ, and by their own sweat and toil; it behoves you also, therefore, as "a peculiar people, and a holy nation," to perform all things with harmony in Christ."- The Epistle of Ignatius to the Philadelphians

    Tuesday, October 17, 2017​

    Almighty God, we praise thy Name for thy bishop and martyr Ignatius of Antioch, who offered himself as grain to be ground by the teeth of wild beasts that he might present unto thee the pure bread of sacrifice. Accept, we pray thee, the willing tribute of our lives, and give us a share in the pure and spotless offering of thy Son Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. -Lesser Fasts and Feasts

    I have purchased an Anglican rosary and an Anglican book comprised of traditional prayers adapted to the Anglo-rosary. I enjoy the ritual, as it helps me to sleep sometimes and yet doesn't violate my protestant convictions about invoking the intercession of saints, or Mary, and so forth. I need to do it more often. I love making my own prayers for it. One of them goes like this:

    The Cross:
    In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

    The Invitory:
    Lord God, may you possess the gates of our enemies. And let us not be fast to seek condemnation, but let there be a kind rebuke and restoration for those who will listen, lest the Day of the Lord come to pass on them.

    The Cruciform:
    Lord God, we beseech you to save us.

    The Weeks:
    Lord God, giver of grace, have mercy on me, a sinner.

    I've found the book "Anglican Rosary" by Lynn Bauman to be helpful.

    https://www.fullcirclebeads.com/products/the-anglican-rosary-by-lynn-c-bauman

    She has a few prayers based on the BCP daily/little office as well. I like using them combined with the office prayers so I can take time and rest in the meaning of the verses. There is always such beauty packed in those short prayers and it is easy to just run through the prayers and not reflect.

    Evening Prayer
    Crucifix: Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as incense, The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

    Invitatory Bead: O God, make speed to save us. O Lord make haste to help us.

    Cruciform Beads: Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever. Amen.

    The week: Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch or weep this night (or) Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; let the whole earth tremble before him. (or) I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel; my heart teaches me, night after night.

    This week let us remember all the Saints who have come before us and rejoice in their life, faith, and examples left to the church in these troubled times. May God keep us strong and bless each and everyone on this forum.

    Almighty God, who hast knit together thine elect in one
    communion and fellowship in the mystical body of thy Son
    Christ our Lord: Give us grace so to follow thy blessed
    saints in all virtuous and godly living, that we may come to
    those ineffable joys that thou hast prepared for those who
    unfeignedly love thee; through the same Jesus Christ our
    Lord, who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth,
    one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
    BCP

    I wanted to link you guys to a great resource on eBay for the anglo-rosary. However, I need to note that the seller is located in the USA and overseas shipping might be costly, but since I got my rosary from here (same one below), I thought I'd give them some generous promotion:
    handmade-rosaries @ eBay

    Also check their other items for sale for more varieties of rosary incuding dominican, and others.

    I wanted to offer another resource for Anglican rosaries. I received a stunning Anglican rosary as a Christmas gift. It came from St. Anthony's Beads on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/saintanthonysbeads Her works include both classic and contemporary designs.

    Saint Stephen December 26

    We give the thanks, O Lord of glory, for the example of the
    first martyr Stephen, who looked up to heaven and prayed
    for his persecutors to thy Son Jesus Christ, who standeth at
    thy right hand; where he liveth and reigneth with thee and
    the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
    When the council members heard Stephen’s speech, they were angry and furious.But Stephen was filled with the Holy Spirit. He looked toward heaven, where he saw our glorious God and Jesus standing at his right side.Then Stephen said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right side of God!”

    The council members shouted and covered their ears. At once they all attacked Stephen and dragged him out of the city. Then they started throwing stones at him. The men who had brought charges against him put their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul.

    As Stephen was being stoned to death, he called out, “Lord Jesus, please welcome me!” He knelt down and shouted, “Lord, don’t blame them for what they have done.” Then he died. (Acts 7:54-60)

    Lord, please help us to remember those that suffer for the sake of Jesus Christ. We pray that you will give them continual strength and courage in the face of violence and persecution.

    Unfortunately, Bauman, who is often credited with creating the Anglican/Episcopal rosary, is a convicted sex offender:
    http://www.virtueonline.org/convicted-pedophile-episcopal-priest-host-spiritual-retreats

    I don't want to commit the genetic fallacy and say that it makes the Anglo-Rosary inherently evil, but I found the news of this rather disappointing.

    This is important to note. But, I don't want to get off topic here, so maybe the mods could move these posts to another new thread?

    The prayers for the Anglican rosary mostly come from the BCP itself, or older Christian prayers/hymns. And while it is a disappointment to hear of this person's original involvement, I believe that the Anglican Rosary is a product of many involved people and not just one individual. It certainly has taken on a life beyond and it's origins reach into the RC and Orthodox traditions. If the churches traditions depended on just one or two people alone, we would be in trouble for sure.

    I Saw This too, is rather sad And disappointing, but we need to maintain our eyes on the target that is Christ. Humans can fail, be fragil, do horrible things, but our Lord Will never disappoint us. Grace and Peace to You Brother.
