Prayer Shawl Ministry

I am currently knitting for this church of little ladies who bless me every time we get together. I net tthem almost 5 yrs ago & have knitted over 100 prayers shawls & baby blankets. I am a registered nurse in a hospital that many of them have gone to patients & co-workers. I continue to knit & I have people that come to me asking me to knit for them. All shawls are prayed over before they are given out.If I need to give one before we meet at church then we bless the shawl on our unit. This includes all nurses, nurse's aides, & secretaries. We use the homespun yarn. I also journal who has received the shawl, location, & reason why. I cannot even imagine how many hours I put in on knitting one shawl. What I do know is that God has put this ministry in my life for His glory. I am honored to be chosen for this & will continue to knit aslong as I can. Susie Roth
