Last Sunday each family brought a little food to share before we had our baby shower for Baby Tariq. I had encouraged each lady to bring a dish towel with their food. Not a fancy or brand new towel, but one that you've touched, used, worked with. Before we all left I put all the towels in a box and we each drew one out.
The idea is to take home the dish towel and USE IT. Wash dishes, dry dishes, wipe the countertops, clean with it. While using each others towels we have a little reminder to pray for that towel's owner, each other, and our Church.
"... The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:16b
