PRAYER SHAWL #2


This is the second prayer shawl I have completed and I made it for my oldest daughter, Suzette. Like the first one I made, for my second daughter, Jacque, it took me almost 2 months to finish. I am hoping the third one, I am currently working on, will not take me quite as long to complete.

My Tuesday night Bible Study group prayed over this one at our meeting on June 29th.

The card that is tucked under the cord reads: "This Prayer Shawl was handmade and prayed over by your mother, Susan Errett Joyce, in 2010. It represents tangible evidence of my prayer and love for you, my child. I ask my Lord Jesus for you to receive His healing, His love, and His hope. As you wrap yourself in this shawl, may you find His comfort as it represents His arms around you.
Jeremiah 31:16-17 - Psalma 33:11 - Proverbs 22:6"

Our church has a Prayer Shawl Ministry that I first posted about here if you missed it and care to read about it.

This is a wonderful gift - not only because you made it, but because of the many prayers that were and will be lifted up for her!

Susan, this is too precious for words.And the shawl is so beautiful! Great job and something she'll always treasure and I'm sure it will get passed down for generations.

That is truly a beautiful gift you have given your daughters.
I am sure that when they wear it they will truly feel the love not only from you but our dear LORD.
Thanks for sharing.

I love it's "red"ness. Reminds of the blood of Jesus that covers our sins. What a beautiful work and labor of love, as is His daily labor of love in our lives.
