How I started the Prayer Shawl Ministry at my church

My husband had cancer last year. It was early detected and quickly taken out. The church we had left behind in Washington made a Prayer shawl for me and a lap robe for my husband. We intend to return to this church so we keep in touch with many of the members. The lovely ladies in the Prayer Shawl Ministry knitted these lovely little works of art for the two of us.

We were so touched living so far away and being thought of so often, I felt I should return the gift.

I asked the ladies in my new church if they would like to start this ministry. They have shown a real interest. Also at this very time we received a new minister who is a blessing to our congregation.

Now we have several ladies besides myself who are turning out these lovely shawls. I do the Homespun yarn in the Trinity. K3, P3 which makes ridges down the shawl.

I love doing these shawls and as I knit I put little prayers in my shawls. The pastor prays over the shawls with the rest of us in a circle around the one who will receive the garment.

I hope there are others that are as inspired to make these lovely shawls as I am.

Best Regards

Connie Juhl
