Daughters of the King initiate Prayer Blanket Ministry

St. Elizabeth Chapter of Daughters of the King at St. Andrew’s took on the prayer blanket ministry that our dear friend Pat Arthur had faithfully nurtured for so many years. As we make blankets that will be taken by the Pastoral Care Team on their visits to those in need, we offer our prayers to God for healing, comfort and peace. We recently gathered for a potluck at the home of April Wallace and enjoyed both fellowship and prayer as we devoted ourselves to this ministry.

The St. Andrew’s Daughters pray over the blankets

Our Heavenly Father, by whose loving kindness and mercy our souls and bodies are renewed look upon your children for who we pray.  Knowing you are interested personal needs, we bring to your altar those who are perplexed or afraid as we ask you to take away fear, those who face physical suffering as we ask you to give them courage to endure; those who seem burdened with indecision, as we ask you to left the pall of confusion. We also bring those who are lonely, for whom we ask companionship. We ask guidance and comfort for those to whom death has brought sorrow and despair.  Renew the strength of those who care for the sick and the lame, so their ministry can reflect your glory and give joy and a sense of holy contentment to those who are steadfast. Heal all of our infirmities according to your holy will and in your holy wisdom. We give thanks to you through service to Him who brings the fullness of life to all believers, in His Name and For His Sake, our King and Savior, Jesus Christ AMEN.

The Order of the Daughters of the King Mission: Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as Daughters is to know Jesus Christ, to make him known to others, and to reflect God’s love throughout the world.

All women are warmly invited to join us in our daily prayer and evangelism.  Please contact: April Wallace, Shirley Morton, Linda Rines, Geri Schlosser or Berna Moody for more information.  Our next formal meeting will be Sunday, September 16, 2016.
