Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, the sinner
Welcome to Chotki.com, an online store for traditional, hand-tied prayer ropes.

We are glad to welcome you here! Please allow us to share our devotion with you. First, take a moment to look at our prayer rope photo gallery, since this is the heart of our store. Then, if you'd like to know us better, we recommend that you read our story, and learn about the art of making prayer ropes.

If you are interested in the Jesus Prayer, we would love to make you another invitation! We have created a Jesus Prayer Resource Library, a special section dedicated to provide canonical Orthodox Christian writings on the Jesus Prayer. We trust and hope you will find it spiritually enriching!

If you wonder what our name means, please note that Orthodox Christians of the Slavic tradition refer to prayer ropes as “chotki” (Russian: чётки); this is synonymous to the term used by those of the Greek tradition, “komboskini” (Greek: κομποσκοίνι), which literally means “string of beads.”

About our prayer ropes
Separation line
We definitely know how difficult it is to find quality Orthodox prayer ropes! Sadly, what you will mostly find are low-cost imports made of synthetic wool yarns.

One way to evaluate the quality of a prayer rope is by ensuring that all of the knots are evenly tied. You should not be able to discern any differences between them. They should all be firm and look the same, making you appreciate the prayer rope for its symbolic regularity and beautiful appearance. By looking at our product photos, you can see that we do the best we can to achieve this goal.

Those who have read “The Way of a Pilgrim” are familiar with the term “The Jesus Prayer.” It refers to a short prayer the words of which are: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, the sinner,” constantly repeated. The Way of a Pilgrim is the story of a man who wanted to learn to pray without ceasing (cf. 1 Thes. 5:17). As the man whose experience is being related was a pilgrim, a great many of his psychological characteristics, and the way in which he learned and applied the prayer, were conditioned by the fact that he lived in a certain way, which makes the book less universally applicable than it could be; and yet it is the best possible introduction to this prayer, which is one of the greatest treasures of the Orthodox Church. - Metropolitan Anthony Bloom
