"to comfort all who mourn, 3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion-- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair" Isaiah 61:2b-3a (NIV)
This prayer ministry is aimed at sharing the love of God by giving practical, handmade items to people. A "prayer shawl" is a physical reminder of God's personal love and knowledge of the receiver and their circumstances. It is our desire to touch as many people as possible with these physical blankets of prayer. We meet quarterly to pray, consider new avenues of ministry and work on projects. Currently we are supporting "knit-a-square", Red Cross "Trauma Teddies", and making fabric eye glass pouches to give with the glasses during the Cambodia mission trip. Each member is also individually working on items for people placed on their hearts. Pray with us that the love of Jesus would be tangible to all those we come in contact with!
