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
