I was recently in Pensacola and given two lap quilts for “Quilts for the Cause”. These are two handmade beautifully created quilts which were made and then prayed over by the ladies and will eventually be given away. One of the quilter’s family members donated the green and yellow quilt on behalf of their mother who has since gone to be with the LORD. They said, “This is what my mother would have wanted.” The recipient could be a trafficking or domestic abuse survivor, a crisis or disaster survivor, or maybe someone who is overcoming a crisis in their life.
Whatever the case the cause is all the same. We want to share that Jesus is our only true source of hope and comfort in the midst of life’s hardships. He loves us and is always willing to walk us through every storm that comes our way.
Over the past few years, we have given out hundreds of quilts, mini-prayer shawls. The good news of Jesus and His everlasting gift of salvation has been shared by these handmade gifts to individuals, homes and shelters in the U.S. and to the uttermost parts of the earth. They have traveled and ended up in places like China, Africa, Middle & South America, even to Alaska! We hope to have more donations to pray over and send to places like the Ukraine, Turkey and Taiwan. If you or your quilting group would like to donate or are interested in learning more, please contact me. If you do not quilt, but would like to donate funds for material, or postage every little bit helps the cause.
Yeshua wore a Prayer Shawl
A prayer shawl, also called a tallit, is a special garment worn by Jewish men. The garment signifies the nobility that comes from being God’s chosen people. The tallit is a sign of obedience to God’s law.
Jewish women are not required to wear them, but some do during prayer time. Jewish children are often given the tallit at their bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah. Some Christians today use a prayer shawl during their prayer time.
We read in scripture about one woman who reached out to touch the garment of Yeshua. The following is an excerpt from an article I read on Prayer Shawls and Jesus:
“Now a certain woman had a flow of
blood for twelve years and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had
and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Yeshua [Jesus], she came behind Him in
the crowd and touched His garment; for she said,
‘If only I may touch His
clothes I shall be made well.’ Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. And Yeshua, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, ‘Who touched My clothes?’
But His disciples said to Him,
‘You see the multitude thronging You, and
You say, “Who touched Me?”’
And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had
happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. And He said to her, ‘Daughter,
your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed of your affliction’” (Mark 5:25–34).
It would be impossible to record how many times this portion of Scripture has been read and accepted as being a wonderful example of faith in Yeshua (Jesus) and a demonstration of the authority of the Son of Man over every realm, over disease, nature, and tradition, but then, sadly, just laid aside until we are prompted by the Holy Spirit to recall the incident again. As with so many of the miracles performed by Yeshua, however, there is a wealth of teaching, revelation, wonder, and authority to be gleaned when we take the time to delve beneath the surface of what we are reading. In order to capture a greater understanding of this passage of
Scripture, we would benefit from an understanding of the Hebrew background of this miracle. Read Full Article (Yeshua Wore a Prayer Shawl) Here from Bridges of Peace.
Jesus is our King, Our Savior, and our Covering. No matter what circumstances we find ourselves in as followers of Yeshua (Jesus), we know that He is able to give eternal life, heal broken hearts, and deliver us all from the crisis’, traumas, and sin that separates us from Him. This is what Quilts for the Cause is all about. Extending prayers and comfort to those who need Jesus.
Thank you Ladies Let’s Gather, Grace Episcopal Church for your love, your support and handmade gifts to Quilts for the Cause. Most of all thank you for your love for Jesus and those He is touching, covering and loving others through you.
