Prayer Shawl Ministry

How we serve our Lord and Community

Prayer shawls are a tangible way to show God's love to all people at home and across the United States. We provide prayer shawls upon request to members and people across the United States. We have responded to local and national disasters and provide shawls for baptisms and for confirmation. We also have a commitment with the UAMC chaplains to provide prayer shawls for their ministry.

We have a group of approximately 10-12 people, welcome new members, and are equipped to provide instruction and support for new knitters and crocheters. Our teachers can teach you to knit or crochet, but there are other jobs in this ministry that don't require yarn.

We welcome donations to be used for purchasing supplies for this much needed ministry.

If you know someone who could benefit from the love and prayers knitted into each prayer shawl, please contact the office.

Prayer shawls have been presented to:

  • Banner University Hospital patients
  • Victims of natural and human caused disasters
  • Grieving or ill persons, either at Beautiful Savior or throughout the US
  • In celebration of baptisms and confirmation

Ministry Mission:

Prayer shawls are created and distributed as a tangible way to show God’s love to all God’s people. We have a monthly meeting to work together on shawls and it is also a time for prayer and fellowship.

Relation to Church Mission:

This ministry allows us to demonstrate GRACE as we provide shawls for people in the Tucson community and people throughout the country.  The shawls are an ongoing reminder of God’s care for them as well as our prayers, compassion and encouragement for them.

3 Highlights from 2019:

1. A total of 34 prayer shawls were distributed.

2. Pray shawls were made for one confirmand and his parents.

3. We received several notes sharing the blessings that had been received by the gift of a prayer shawl.


3 Aspiration for 2020:

1. To increase participation so that we can distribute more prayer shawls.  We have some great teachers for people who want to learn to knit or crochet

2. To see if there is the possibility of partnering with other congregations in our neighborhood to share in this ministry with us.
