At a recent meeting, Hands for Hope members took time to celebrate the work of their hands and asked God’s blessing on all that they have made to share with others:
Dear Gracious God, we ask your blessing on the prayer shawls, knitted baby caps and blankets lovingly made to be given to those in need of comfort and prayers. They have been made at St. John’s and in homes by many individuals. Bless the quilts made from donated materials by caring hands. They will be given locally to the needy for warmth and comfort. Bless all the recipients so that they may know peace and God’s love and be aware of the prayers said on their behalf. Finally, Lord, bless the men and women who have used their hands to make the items to serve others, thereby serving you, Lord. With thankful hearts, we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
If you wish to be a part of this ministry you are welcome!
