My dl would come to my house and she worked on a blanket she was making and I would work on mine. On one of these visits, my dl and son told me about a ministry at their church where the ladies were making prayer shawls and giving them out to people that needed healing or comfort. I visited some classes at their church to find out more and learned to make a shawl using a loom.
Here is my first finished prayer shawl. I knew who would be receiving this so I prayed over this person for her healing of cancer.
Today our Pastor presented the first Prayer Shawl to this particular lady.
This is what it looked like folded and with a ribbon around it.
The card on the shawl says: This Prayer Shawl was handmade representing the tangible evidence of prayer and love for you. As it was created, you were prayed for. We asked the Lord Jesus for you to receive His healing, His love, and His hope. As you wrap yourself in this shawl, may you find His comfort as it represents His arms around you.
The ladies at our weekly Bible Study prayed over this shawl this past week before it was given away.
Who would have thought that making a baby blanket for the birth of a child, would birth a ministry of prayer and love for others in need. It's exciting what God is doing!!!!
