Messiah’s Prayer Shawl Ministry
Messiah’s Mantles Group
We began our small group in 2006 and promptly named ourselves “Messiah’s Mantles”. The Prayer Shawl ministry creates comfort shawls and brings the Prayer Shawl creators together in a prayerful way. Join us, generally on the third Thursday of the month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The Prayer Shawls are created in patterns of three, symbolizing the holy trinity (3 knit, 3 purl, representing the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).
Our completed shawls are blessed during a worship service, and then given to the sick, the bereaved, those celebrating a wedding or birth of a child and anyone in need of comfort and prayers. To date, Messiah’s Mantles has given away hundreds of prayer shawls and sent them all over the world.
The shawls are created in different colors. Each color has a meaning.
Red: Energy, strength, power, determination, love, courage
Pink: Joy, friendship, feminity
Brown: Stability, masculinity
Orange: Happiness, success, encouragement, endurance
Gold: Illumination, wisdom
Yellow: Cheerfulness, energy, joy, confidence
Green: Healing, harmony, safety, hope, protection, peace
Blue: Stability, trust, loyalty, faith, truth, tranquility
Purple: Wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery
White: Goodness, purity, innocence, faith, safety, light
