Prayer Shawls

Our Prayer Shawl Ministry at Hope Lutheran hurch in Warren, Michigan has been very successful. In one month we has 32 participants and produced 26 shawls. Our group meets every Thursday evening for a two hour period so that a part of each shawl is worked on is worked in God,s sanctuary.

The recipients have been overwhelmed with the fact that we are willing to pray for them and bring comfort to their lives. In a world so seemingly unconcerned there are many of us who care and bring God to them. Our ministry in one month traveled to three other states and Canada. We have received requests from both adult and childrens grief groups.

Our requests have far surpassed our ability to supply. All of our shawls are donated and the majority of our knitters choose Lion Brand yarn. The softness of Homespun brings the feel of the loving arms of the Father to the recipeint. It would be helpful if we could have access to special pricing so that we could provide yarn to women who would like to participate with us but cannot afford the yarn.

I cannot overlook how participating in this program effects the knitter or crocheter. The peace and satisfactionof reaching out to another has brought strength and healing beyond expectation. After receiving shawls two of our recipients have joined us stating that in their giving it has helped heal their grieving hearts.
