Sometimes, however, OO's will use Catholic rosaries or EO chotkis to help with the Jesus Prayer.
The Coptic term for prayer rope is Mequetaria. Given that the existence and use of the prayer rope originated in Coptic monasticism (via St Pachomious), it should be no surprise that it is part of Coptic tradition. In contrast to the EO, however, the primary use of the prayer rope is to recite the standard 41 Kyrie Eleisons (a significantly shortened "version", you could say, of the Jesus Prayer--which nevertheless remains part of Coptic worship, though no less powerful, as various traditions within our Church demonstrate). Coptic Mequetarias are sold on the following website:http://www.chotkis.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=24&osCsid=fd6c945c7144af4f45609f45dc9990bd
