Prayer Shawl

Pocket Prayer Shawl

Do you knit? This is an easy pattern that can be completed in a short time while praying for the unknown recipient and its ministry. A great opportunity to share your talents while providing a gift of outreach in the community.

Before you begin the knitting process, say a blessing or prayer dedicating the work of your hands to the ministry provided. Continue to pray as you knit.
