A Shawl and a Prayer

I am in a knitting group at the First Presbyterian Churcn in New Bern, No. Carolina. The prayer shawls that we make go to those in our church or the community who are battling cancer or other debilitating disease. We have a prayer that we say each session and inclose a copy of this prayer with the shawl. Here is the prayer:
I knit a mantle of caring, I knit a mantle of protection.
I knit a mantle of wholeness, I knit a mantle of strength.
I knit a mantle of healing, I knit a mantle of patoence.
I knit a mantle to enfold you, I knit a mantle to encircle you.
As I knit,I ask for these blessings in the name of God: the Creator,
the Giver of life, the Holder of time. In the name of Jesus: the Healer
and the Lifter of pain. And in the name of the Holy Spirit, the comforter, the Consoler. the sustainer of Life. Amen

We use Homespun Lion Brand yarns and meet weekly for two hours.
We also knit for Applalacia( hats and mittens) and blankets for the nursery.
