Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is an inspiring movement of people who gather to pray and knit or crochet for those in need. The ministry’s sole purpose is to give away the shawls they create -- shawls they hope will literally wrap recipients in prayer. For more information about prayer shawls, search the term 'prayer shawl' on the Internet, visit or click here for an overview of crafting as a spiritual movement

The Blessing of the Shawls

The Daughters of the King Chapter and others at Christ the King Church in Atascocita, Texas are knitting prayer shawls with Lion Brand Homespun. We are knitting the shawls for those in the hospital, sick at home or others who express the desire to have one. As the shawls are knitted or crocheted, the person to receive it is prayed for, even when we don't know who it will be. When finished, the shawl is blessed on the altar and then given.

The Homespun yarn is so soft, it adds to the comfort given by the shawl. It is comforting to use while knitting. We make around 10 a month depending on how much donations we receive.

The ones I have given shawls to feel so blessed by the gift. It is a joy to see their faces and feel the comfort they receive.
