Prayer Threads is about using skills with a crochet hook, knitting needles, or a sewing machine to create, prayerfully, projects to be shared with others.  The purpose is to reach out to those who are going through difficult circumstances or loss and to provide a tangible comfort and reminder of God’s love for them on behalf of the Prayer Threads Ministry of Zion Lutheran Church.

Prayer Threads logoYou are encouraged to join with others in this ministry – either with the group or on your own, as your time permits.  Prayer Threads will be creating lap robes, shawls, quillos, throws, shrugs, and capelets to share.  You may use your own pattern or patterns are available at Zion.

The only guidelines are:

  • all items can be knit, crocheted, or sewn
  • lap robes should measure 40 x 48 (or 40 x 40 if you’d prefer square)
  • shawls should measure 28 x 58
  • quillos should measure about 36 x 66
  • shrugs and capelets should be size medium or large

You may drop off finished Prayer Threads at the church office.  If you know someone who could use a physical reminder of our prayers for them, contact the pastor.


Dear Lord,

Please bless my hands, that I may prayerfully fashion a creation of strength, faith, healing, comfort, and love.  May these Prayer Threads be a reminder to the recipient of Your never-ending love, grace, presence, and protection. 

In Jesus name I pray.  Amen.
