What is Prayer Shawl Ministry?

The  prayer shawl ministry is one way to reach out in Christian love for those in need of special blessings. Prayer is key throughout the process: as each shawl is created, we ask God to bless the one who will receive it. This ministry is done to glorify God and its focus is on the Lord’s work in our lives.

 

Who receives the prayer shawls?

A shawl may be given to offer comfort and solace. For example, one may be presented to someone who is seriously ill or receiving medical treatments, dealing with the loss of a loved one or adjusting to a care facility.

 

How can I participate?

Start knitting or crocheting a shawl today to be given to someone in time of need. Shawls may be made of various patterns in every color of the rainbow, as the maker chooses. There is no “right” or “wrong.” Use your imagination!
