When you knit for others, whether you know them or not, you are giving them far more than the item you knit. In a spiritual sense, you are planting a seed in their life. Wrapped up in your knitted item are your thoughts, prayers, and blessings, whether you were conscious of them at the time you were knitting or not. So, since you’re taking the time to knit for others, why not take it a step further, and consciously pray God’s blessings for them while you’re knitting.
Honest, heart-felt intercessory prayer is one of the most intense forms of communication with God and one of the greatest gifts we can give to another human being. While many people say that they'd like to pray for others, many believe that they simply don't know how.
If you're one of those people, there’s no need to look far for help. What better source to turn to than the ultimate “how-to” guidebook on prayer, The Bible. That’s where this simple little book comes in. In it you will find some very simple yet powerful passages of Scripture that speak to the various circumstances for which you may be knitting for others.
Keep in mind that what you are about to give to another person is much more than that beautiful item you’re knitting. Knit into it is the most powerful and most precious gift you can give to another person, the gift of prayer.
