The Prayer Shawl/Cloth Ministry is a way to care for people who are suffering, surrounding them in the prayer and love that is part of each piece we create. We can help both friends and neighbors feel Jesus surrounding them with His loving presence through the prayers that go into our creations and that continue during and after their presentation. When we crochet or knit, we begin with prayer and go on praying for the recipient, using prayers provided or those of our own. Prayers can deeply touch the life of someone who is ill or suffering and become a visible symbol of Jesus’ love and care.
