Prayer Shawl Ministries
“How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings” (Psalms 36:7closePsalm 36:7
7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. (ESV) ).
As physical creations, we often need physical reminders of spiritual realities, and our “Prayer Shawl Ministry” fills just such a need. At the heart of this ministry are the ladies in our church who invest their time and talent to create beautiful shawls. On many a Sunday our pastor and the entire congregation present will pray over the shawl during worship and the congregation will lift their hands toward the shawl and offer their prayers for the person who will be receiving it. These shawls are made with love and are sent with our congregation’s love to help those who receive them to know that they are not forgotten but are cared for and prayed for. The “Prayer Shawls” are given as tangible expressions of God’s love. It is our sincere hope that the person who will receive the shawl will feel the love of God through this ministry. Each time the recipients wrap themselves in the shawls, they have the opportunity to remember the ever-present and enfolding love of God.
If you know of someone who would appreciate receiving a shawl as a tangible reminder of God’s love, or if you would like to obtain more information about this ministry, please contact our church secretary, Theresa Wiley.
