Prayer Shawl
Created By: Eva Schwartz

Throughout 2006 my mother experienced some devestating health problems. I have always regarded crochet and knitting as a meditative as well as expressive art. I was needing something to distract and calm myself as she was hospitalized for over a month prior to being stable enough to receive surgery for an abdominal abcess. I found the Prayer Shawl Ministry patterns and information on the Lion Brand website and knew that this was something that I needed to do, both for myself and for her. On the day of her surgery while in the family waiting room at the hospital, I began a V-Stitch Prayer shawl in some very beautiful, soft, Homespun yarn. As I completed each stitch, I offered prayers for her strength and health, as well as that the surgical team be guided in making the right moves and choices in her healing. As in many such situations, I had no real sense of time passing, but several hours later, the surgeon came to me and my sister with the announcement that the surgery had been successful. The Prayer Shawl was completed as I sat with my mother in the ICU. By the time she was moved back to a regular hospital room, and was readied for discharge to a skilled nursing facility, where she wore the shawl as she improved in her recovery. My mother is back home with me now, and wears the shawl as a reminder of her healing, strength, and faith. Whenever anyone comments on the shawl, I am able to share the story ... so my Prayer Shawl ministry is a ministry of just one, but I hope that I have inspired others to consider trying it.
