In the Traditional Prayer for the Anglican Rosary, the Lord's Prayer is recited with the Cruciform Beads as it is considered to be the foundational prayer that Jesus taught to his disciples. It is a prayer that is grounded in a deep reverence for God the Father and seeks his guidance and provision for our daily needs.
After reciting the Lord's Prayer, the Jesus Prayer is then often repeated on the Weeks Beads as a form of contemplative prayer that focuses on the name of Jesus and his role as our Savior.
This Traditional prayer may be recited while using Anglican prayer beads or used as a daily devotional. For additional information, check our guide on how to pray the Anglican rosary.
O God, make speed to save us.

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name,

and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.
