Blessing of the Prayer Shawls

Our new prayer shawl ministry has been hard at work these past nine months, knitting and crocheting shawls and prayer squares to be sent out to those who are ill in mind, body, or spirit, to those who are suffering, and to those in need of comfort.

Oh God of healing and hope, we ask that you bless these prayer shawls and prayer squares, made faithfully and lovingly by your servants at Christ Church. Infuse these shawls with the power of your presence, so they may they serve as a salving relief from suffering and pain. May those who receive them be wrapped in comfort, mercy and peace. May they feel renewed and restored in the warmth of your unceasing love. May those we send out to deliver these gifts be a blessing and a comfort to the recipients. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.


If you're interested in being a part of this wonderful ministry in the future, grab your knitting needles and yarn, and join us! Don’t have time to knit a whole shawl? Think about knitting some Prayer Squares instead, with each measuring 5” x 5”. These are easily and quickly made and will be equally appreciated. If you are interested in making shawls or squares, let us know at info@christchurchcolumbia.org
