Prayer Shawl

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.  Some come from ahead, and some come from behind.  But I’ve brought a big bat.  I’m all ready you see.  Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me.”   Dr, Suess

 

   October 2021  Prayer Shawl Intention is “Breast Cancer Awareness”.  Please keep Thelma Hagerman, Diane Christian, Kathy Rogers and Debra Gaynor in your prayers as they knit, crochet and sew special shawls and blankets .

Bringing comfort to the bereaved, sick, elderly, and babies with special needs, as well those broken in spirit with depression, anxiety, or any mental anguish, these beautiful items are lovingly crocheted and hold the prayers of the artists, our pastors, and the church.  Available in many colors, these pieces are available upon request.    

Each stitch has Biblical significance.

  • A chain of 80 stitches represents the 40 days and nights of Lent, Noah’s time on the Ark and most importantly Jesus’ temptation in the desert.
  • Three double stitches that form a shell represent the Trinity.
  • Five double stitches represent the wounds of Christ on the Cross.
  • 39 rows on each blanket represent the 39 strikes Christ endured before his crucifixion.

This ministry is lovingly named in honor of Mary Bryan.
