Chilliwack Prayer Shawl Knitting

9845 Carleton St

Whether they are called “Prayer Shawls” “Comfort Shawls” or “Peace Shawls” - to name a few – many blessings are knitted into every shawl. The knitter begins each shawl with prayers and blessings (for the recipient if known). Intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. When the shawl is finished and when the recipient is known, the group silently prays for the recipient while touching the shawl. The shawl is then given to the recipient in a quiet manner. Included is a card describing the ministry of the Prayer Shawl. Shawls are meant to be given away unconditionally and NOT be sold for profit. Some reasons for giving prayer shawls are: Undergoing medical procedures After a loss During illness and recovery During difficult emotional, mental or spiritual times Major life changes: birth, marriage, move, job change or loss etc. Celebration of any major life events It is important that the origins of this ministry be honoured. The developers of this ministry back in 1998 intended this to be a “grass roots” effort and have worked diligently to keep this principle. Our group has continued with this principle and wish to give credit to the developers. More information can be found at www.shawlministry.com
