The Strait Stitchers
Created By: Judy Churchill

Our prayer shawl ministry group started just about a year ago. We are a small group of about 7 or 8 women who meet every Monday afternoon at The Church of the Straits in Mackinaw City, Michigan.

We call ourselves the Strait Stitchers as our church overlooks the beautiful Straits of Mackinac. We begin our gatherings with a simple prayer over the shawls we are working on. To date we have given over 20 shawls away and received lovely notes back from several recipients:

"What a wonderful surprise and symbol of your good thoughts and prayers in those first few hours after surgery."

"Thank you for the beautiful prayer shawl, it has become a conversation piece with my nurses."

"... I am using it and feel God's warmth and love."

"I can't tell you how much I love and appreciate the beautiful shawl. When I put it on, I feel like you all have your arms around me."

One man whos wife had been restless since her stroke said she calmed down and slept peacefully after being covered with a prayer shawl.

What a beautiful ministry, when something as simple as a knitted shawl can calm those in need or assure those who are hurting that God loves them.
