Prayers to stay
Created By: Mabel Durrell

My good friend Sharon started this ministry. Because of the mastectomy I had a few years ago, I was the first to receive one. I have taken it to the hospital and rehab everytime I've had surgery. Such a comfort. And I take my naps with it. Every stitch contains the love she has for me and the healing God will provide.

I made a large lap one for my nephew, John after his wife died from her cancers and he was greiving and had back problems. When he visited his sister in TN he told her he felt different whenever he put it on. She told him of course that was because of the prayers I said as I made it for him. Recently he called to tell me he had dropped it, got it dirty and was afraid to wash it for fear "the prayers would wash out". I told him, "Johnny, you can't even bleach them out !" So it has been washed and he still feels the prayers every night when he wraps it around his shoulders or lays it across his chest. Eventually I hope to make him a full size rectangular one so he can stay warm during our winter.

I love making them and try to incorporate a series of 3 stitches somewhere within it to represent the trinity.
