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

Shawl Knitting Ministry

The Shawl Knitting Ministry group in our church knit a shawl for one of our members. She has Alzheimer's Disease and is residing in an assisted living facility.

One day, the nurse was trying to convince her to get out of bed, get dressed and come to the dining room for lunch.

She was determined to stay in bed until the nurse said, "You have a visitor and she has a present for you."

Our Diaconal Minister gave the shawl to her and told her someone prayed for her while knitting it for her.

"Someone knit this for me...and they prayed for me as they knit? Well, I'm going to the dining room to show off my new shawl!"

As you can see, many people benefit from an act of kindness. Continue to share your gift of knitting - EVERYONE can make a difference in this world.
