|In early 2012 a group of women from Mizpah UMC
started what we originally called a Prayer Shawl ministry. In addition
to Prayer Shawl's we began to produce quilts, fleece lap robe covers along
with knitted or crocheted items. Upon completion these items were
brought to the alter area of Mizpah and with the group of women holding a
piece of the crafted item they were blessed by a prayer and then
delivered to persons that were identified as in need of either medical or
personal suffering needs. Upon receipt many of the recipients sent
cards/letters back to the group stating what a strong healing feeling they
had as they used the coverings.
As of November 2012 close to 100 items have been crafted, received prayer and distributed.
And around our gathered circle
This shawl was passed through our praying hands
And has been blessed
By our loving hearts
