Prayer Shawls

Ice and a two hour school delay – enough to put me in a tizzy!  I’m involved in a Prayer Shawl Ministry and the group meets at my house once a month.  Today was the day.  When my husband reported on the condition of our driveway – sheet of ice, I e-mailed the group and cancelled our get-together.  I moved on with my day, but no one got the e-mail, and at 10am they showed up anyway!
Our small group has given away close to 200 prayer shawls in a little over a year’s time.  The following pictures are just a handful of them.


We have gals that knit and crochet, and we have a gal that weaves.  The maker of the shawl prays for the person who will be receiving the shawl.  Sometimes we know who that will be, but usually we don’t.  The prayer shawls become a tangible reminder that we are wrapped in God’s warmth, blessings, and peace.
We have received so many notes and stories of how these shawls have arrived at just the right time – God’s time I think!
Free Prayer Shawl Patterns for both knitting and crocheting, are available on the Lion Brand website.
