Prayer Shawl Ministry

A gift of comfort, a gift or warmth, the Prayer Shawl Ministry is all this and more.
Started by some very creative ladies in July of 2006, this ministry has turned in to an amazing success. Each prayer shawl begins with "In the name of the Father, the Creator, the giver of

A prayer shawl may go to a cancer patient, a stroke patient, a person struggling with depression or pain that cannot be controlled. It may go to a daughter whose father is dying and
she can't be with him. It may go to a child whose parents are going through a divorce. It may be a member of the Morrowville Christian Church, it may not be.

Who it goes to is often unknown
when the shawl is started, but who makes it knows that their prayer of healing and hope will go with it. The shawl envelops the recipient in warmth and prayers from the community of
the Morrowville Christian Church. As the craftsperson creates the shawl the prayer of healing is prayed so that the prayer is literally woven into the yarn. In addition, the prayer shawl is
prayed over by all the adult Sunday school classes at the church.

Since this ministry was started in our church in July 2006, prayer shawls have been sent to at least 8 different states (Kansas, Nebraska, Texas, New Mexico, California, Missouri, Minnesota,
and Florida), Washington DC, and even halfway around the world (Germany, Afghanistan, and Iraq). In all we have given out, by request, 165 shawls that used approximately 500
skeins of yarn!

What an amazing story. Isn't it amazing that something so powerful often starts from one act of caring by an individual. In 2000 Bette Shellhorn of the All Saints Lutheran Church in Mason Michigan made the first Prayer Shawl. Since that time it has spread across the country to churches of almost every denomination. Wow, what an awesome God we worship. A God that takes one person's talent and turns it into something so much more.
