There are so many ways to make prayer shawls. This ministry has grown over the past 15 years and many churches have now picked up the practice. The making of a prayer shawl requires a heart for giving and comforting.
Our church group experiments with many different patterns. We each use the skills God gave us to create shawls to give away to those who are in need. While you are making your shawl, you should pray for the person who will receive it. Sometimes you might know who you are making it for, but other times the shawl will be added to the stash in your group and given when a need arises. No matter, praying is the heart of the prayer shawl.
If you are looking for an easy to make prayer shawl in either crochet or knit, I recommend visiting this site: Shawl Ministry.
This month I am working on a black prayer shawl and I’m going to use the crochet pattern shown on the site.
Wishing you love,
