Default Using the rosary for other prayers

If i wanted to say 50 prayers to St.Michael the Archangel or something of the like, would i be able to use the rosary to keep track of the prayers? Or is the rosary only for the Divine Mercy and the actual rosary prayers?

There are plenty of other lesser known prayer chaplets and such that are said using Rosary beads - so yes, you can say whatever prayers you like on them

You can also just hold the Rosary in your hand and talk to God, Mary or Jesus using your own words. You don't need to be Catholic to benefit from prayer.

Just don't be surprised to find that someday you might become Catholic.

No need to be afraid. God loves you and is more concerned with you than anybody else (or everybody else all put together)

Of course. I actually wrote a chaplet that uses standard Rosary beads

By the way, in case you are interested, St. Michael actually has a chaplet (although it is prayed on different beads). Here it is:

Yeah, i was just thinking of saying the St.Michael prayer instead of the Hail Mary, but praying the rest of the beads the same.
