Mt. Pisgah's Prayer Stitchers
Created By: Sandra Harrington

Our prayer shaw ministry stated when a local chruch contated our minister and invited us to join their group. We chose not to join their group but have our own ministry at our chruch. They ask me to teach them how to knit which was a firt for me but I could not say no to something that would bring comfort to others. We meet in the fellowship hall of our chruch on Monday each week. We have been meeting now over a year. It is wonderful and we now have some from our local Churches in our community join our group.Our Chruch gives us money whan needed to buy the yarn. We made over 100 prayer shawls from toddler to teenager and took to Duke Children's cancer hospital in Durham, North Carolina. We also took about 35 for the intensive care infants. It was wonderful, the ones that could go went and then we made a fun day of going out to eat and finished the day with some shopping. We also make prayer shawls for anyone that has cancer or sick. It has brought everyone so much confort but it has also brought the ones that make the shawls a lot of joy also. We have a great time getting together each week and doing something that will bring joy and comfort. We made a prayer shawl for a man that had a stroke and he never knew anything until he died. His wife told me at funeral home the night he died they thought his feet was cold and they covered them with his prayer shawl to keep them warm. We made over 100 from toddle to teenager and took to Duke cancer hospital for children. WE also took about 35 to the babies in the intensive care unit. Our prayer sistchers group took them as many went that could go. We had a fun day after delivering the prayer shawls we went to eat and went shopping. We attach a card with a ribbon that reads This lapghan was handmade for you by our Prayer Stitchers Ministry. As it was created we prayed for you. We asked the Lord to give you many blessings or strength, courage, & healing. May this lapghan bring you comfort and peace and love of your Heavely Father. Every stitch represents a prayer given for you...A thought given about you....Love given to you. Every time you wrap the lapghan around you, prayers flutter through the air up to Heaven, then gently settle around you. May God Blee you and keep you. Mt. Pisgah Presbyterian Church Rev. Doung Houston, Pastor Physcal Address 2300 Mt. Pisgah Chruch Road, Broadway, N. C. 27505 Mailing Address 1148 McArthur Road Broadway, N. C. 27505. I would say to anyone interested in starting a pryer shawl minister they will be glad after they see how much love and comfort it give to others. Thanks for giving me the oportunity to share our ministry with you. I have a picture of our group when we took the prayer shawls to Duke. I could send to you but not one through email. Thanks again Sandra
