A prayer shawl, in Christianity, is a piece of cloth blessed in honor of a saint, angel, or deceased person. They are blessed by the clergy and can be informally blessed through prayer by the laity. They are to be given to a person who is ill, injured, or in bad fortune.[1] They may also be given to people for celebrating events such as childbirth, baptism, or confirmation. [2] Prayer shawls are common in Roman Catholic, Eastern Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Methodist, and Presbyterian churches.
