Prayer Shawl Ministry Needs You! The First Lutheran Prayer Shawl Ministry is one way to reach out in Christian love for those in need of special blessings. Throughout the knitting process prayer is the key looped into each chain. As each shawl is created, we ask God to bless the one who will receive it. This ministry is done to glorify God by focusing on the Lord’s work in our lives through times of sorrow or suffering. Then, the shawl is usually given to offer comfort and solace. For example, one may be presented to someone who is seriously ill or receiving medical treatments, dealing with the loss of a loved one or adjusting to a care facility. If you would like to be a part of this ministry please contact our church office for more information. There is always room for more knitters! Shawls may be knitted or crocheted at home, made of various patterns in every color of the rainbow, as the maker chooses. There is no “right” or “wrong.” Use your imagination!
