Prayer Ministry

Prayer Ministers

Prayer Ministers are available in worship every Sunday during Holy Communion and after the service to pray individually with you for healing for body, mind, or spirit.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry at Advent Lutheran Church has its history in the Old Testament books of Numbers and Deuteronomy. It is a very old custom used to provide healing, comfort and the peace of God to someone in need and to remind them of the loving presence of God. As the person knits or crochets the shawl, prayers are offered for the person for whom the shawl is intended. Opportunities are available to knit or crochet a shawl as a gift of prayer to someone or to request a prayer shawl to be given to someone you know is in need of God’s comfort. Patterns (link to:
