Prayer Shawl Ministry
"Shawls ... made for centuries universal and embracing,
symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God.
They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace,
mother, hug, shelter and beautify.
Those who have received these shawls have been
uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to
fly above their troubles..."
Written in 1998 by: Janet Bristow
Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, as well as in celebration and joy. Many blessings are prayed into every stitch.
Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, Comfort Shawls, Peace Shawls, or Mantles, the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. Intentions are continued throughout the creation of each shawl. At completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way. At Westminster Presbyterian Church congregation members offer a prayer for the recipient and tie a knot to remind that person this shawl arrives with much prayer and care. Thus, the blessing ripples from person-to-person, with givers and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering, caring God!
Shawls can be used for comforting or celebrating; there are endless possibilities!
