Whispering Prayer® is a jewelry line that started as a labor of love by my sister, Shannon, in Atlanta, Georgia. Shannon has incredible energy, a creative mind, and a huge heart. She is a pediatric nurse and interior designer, but it was her love of beading and prayer that started this incredible journey. She found that whispering prayers while she beaded bracelets made her feel closer to God. Shannon started hosting jewelry parties and the demand for her bracelets grew. People requested the bracelets not only for themselves, but to give comfort for others in times of need. Boutiques and hospitals soon got word and were interested in carrying the bracelets. Shannon now needed a name for her new business venture and prayed for guidance. The Lord answered her prayers and our jewelry line Whispering Prayer® Jewelry was born.
My sister asked me to join her ministry. Even though I was working full-time at a job I loved, I felt drawn to her ministry. I was constantly worrying about what decision I should make. But, like Shannon, I prayed for guidance and peace. Philippians 4:6 says, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.” After months of praying and meditating, I decided to join Shannon and devote my time to nurture Whispering Prayer® Jewelry. Our business began with our tradition bracelets; but now we have expanded to necklaces and a special line for men. God used this process as a lesson to continually pray, never worry, and thank Him always.
I apply this lesson of constant prayer to the products we make at Whispering Prayer® Jewelry. Each piece is prayed over three different times. While we string the beads, we recite the Serenity Prayer. As both ends of the bracelet are knotted together, the following Whispering Prayer® poem is recited: With each bead I string, my thoughts are meant for you. When the knot is tied, may my whispered prayer see you through. Finally, a devotion is said over each individual piece of jewelry. Each day customers write to tell about how Whispering Prayer® Jewelry has been a blessing, whether they were given the gift of prayer or they have wrapped themselves in prayer.
Whispering Prayer® Jewelry has been a blessing in my life and my passion is to pass on this blessing. Because God has blessed us, our goal is to extend this blessing to nonprofits like Pink Ribbon Girls, Sandy Hook Promise, and Special Olympics through Toledo Public Schools. Whispering Prayer® Jewelry is excited to share this gift with you!
Yours in Prayer,
