The Story of the Prayer Blanket
By Pastor Connie Hale
 
The Prayer Blanket idea was birthed out of agonizing pain. When my son was in the hospital at 17 years old and diagnosed with Schizophrenia I was broken with heartache. God's word in Jeremiah 29:11 literally saved my emotional life. God says: "I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, they are for good and not for evil and I give you a future and a hope." God touched me and made me realize that He was in control. He had a plan for me and for my son. This plan was for good and not for evil. And when I thought there was no hope He said, "I give you a future and a hope." I believed every word and based my life upon this powerful scripture. 
When I was visiting my son at the hospital. I noticed that the people on psychiatric floor seemed to be holding stuffed animals, hats, other small items. It almost seemed that these concrete items brought them comfort. I knew that blankets are items that give people comfort so I went back to the church and asked the women to make blankets that the patients could use to keep warm. I attached a card with the Jeremiah 29:11 scripture on each blanket.  The card stated that every time they would wrap this blanket around them, they would think about God's loving arms around them.
Today, hundreds of blankets have gone out to hospitals and to nursing homes where people are sick and need the comfort of God's love.
 
Imagine.... Over a simple blanket people have cried and even given their hearts to Jesus.
