At the store the other day, there was a knitting (or crocheting) book for prayer shawls and a huge story about them, etc. What are they and what is their use?
i do not know but i do not like the sound of it
prayer is talking to God right?
well i do not have much more to add execpt were they free?
God bless you;
Here is an information site on "prayer shawls":
May we search our own hearts as we seek discernment. The source originates in applied feminist spirituality, and I would urge caution in embracing this practice as presented.

A servant of Christ,
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
Just reading the description, it sounds a bit like a talisman. I know that tassels (tzitzit) were commanded in Numbers 15:38-40 to be added to the clothing of the men and that has translated to their wearing a small prayer shawl (tallit) under their shirts, but I don't think that this is anything like that. If I were going to get one, I'd get one from the folks who have been making them for centuries.
No more holy than a pancho
Beware of Emergent relics!
Revelation 22:17a The Spirit and Bride are now saying, "Come!" The ones who hear are now saying, "Come!" The ones who thirst are now saying, "Come!"
Come LORD Jesus !

Glad to read the responses. From what I could gather from the instruction manual, there was a picture of a woman pastor (my first red flag right there!) blessing a row of prayer shawls. From what I can tell, they are blessed and then people wear them for God's blessings. Oy, not something I am even interested in getting into. I do not need a shawl draped around my shoulders to receive God's blessings. He does just fine on his own! :o) Thank you all so much!
Are we there yet?
