Prayer Shawls are an embracing symbol of a loving God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, hug, shelter and beautify.
Whether they are called Prayer Shawls, Comfort Shawls, or Peace Shawls, the shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way. Some recipients have continued the kindness by making a shawl and passing it onto someone in need.
Shawls can be used for: support for someone undergoing a medical procedure; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; prayer or meditation; commitment or marriage ceremonies; during an illness and recovery; ministering to others; there are endless possibilities.
