When our church began its prayer shawl ministry,...
Created By: Michelle Green

When our church began its prayer shawl ministry, I didn't have anyone for whom to knit a shawl. Several of the women suggested that I knit a lap blanket (our version of the shawls for men) for a longtime church member who was very ill. I knit the lap blanket in the colors of his alma mater, and prayed for him the entire time.

Within a month of the time that I gave him the blanket, he passed away. Because I hadn't known him I did not attend his wake. However, my fellow ministry members who did attend told me that he was wrapped in the lap blanket. I was so moved that his family thought so much of a blanket knit by someone they didn't yet know. I knew then that they understood the love and prayers that went into the blanket, and they wanted him surrounded by that warmth as he was laid to rest.

Since then, his wife and I have enjoyed seeing each other at church, and I keep her in my prayers, as well. And every time I sit to knit a prayer shawl, I realize what an impact each stitch may have on the one who receives it.
