Prayer Shawl
Created By: Joyce Powell

I was at a Hospice Fund Raiser and saw a lady knitting a Prayer Shawl. I thought it to be a thoughtful idea, this was around Christmas time one year. Then in the summer of the next year, my sister-in-law was dignosed with kidney cancer. I remember the shawl I had seen before and I set out to make her one. She was very touched, and she took it to the hospital with her. After her kidney was removed, she had to undergo Chemo, she elected to go to The Cancer Treatment Centers of America and I got the privilage of going with her. She took her Prayer Shawl. I was once again touched. After that, she had me to make a shawl for someone she know who had been dignosed with cancer and the Ladies Ministeries of her church prayed over it before it was given to the person.

Several years later I began working at a hospital who does Breast Flaps for cancer patients and one of the nurses who works with me, was dignosed with breast cancer. I made her a Prayer Shawl and had the ladies at my sister-in-laws church pray over it for me. My sister-in-law went on line, found the story about the shawl and typed up a letter for me to give along with the shawl. After my co-workers surgery, I went into her hospital room and there on her bed, covering her, was her Prayer Shawl.

By the way, my sister-in-laws Prayer Shawl rest on the back of her couch in her den today. I am so thankful that the lady at the fundraiser took the time to tell me what she was making and the story behind it.

Thank you for such a wonderful gift.
