Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawl MinistryThe Prayer Shawl Ministry sees three different groups in the congregation working together – the Craft Group, the Prayer Group and the Pastoral Care Group. The Craft Group knit shawls – usually for the sick and the housebound – the Prayer Group pray for the person and put a prayer card in with the shawl that reminds them of God’s comfort and love, and then someone from the Pastoral Care Team delivers it. All recipients so far have been delighted to be remembered in this kind and thoughtful way.

Thought for the week

Prayer for January

Prayer
Father,
we pray for those
who know the suffering
of total despair
for the terminally ill
and the grief-stricken;
for the depressed
and for those consumed by guilt;
for those who have lost their faith
in life, in others, in you.
We bring before you
Those who feel totally alone
When faced with fears and pain
That threatens to overwhelm them.
Amen
