Can you touch a prayer? Can you pull it close and feel its comfort? You can if it’s part of a prayer quilt.
The idea behind these quilts is simple, yet powerful. A heavy thread is used to take stitches through the quilt layers, and the ends are left free to be tied with a square knot. As each knot is tied, a silent prayer is offered for someone in special need – someone who has asked us to pray for them. The quilt is then given to that person. What makes each quilt so special is not the pattern, color or workmanship but the fact that prayer is symbolically tied into each one. These “comforters” are a statement of faith, and a testimony to our belief in God and in the power of prayer.
If you know someone who you think needs to have special prayers and would like to have one of our quilts, they are lap size quilts, please let us know. That person should be contacted and willing to receive a quilt. These quilts cannot be bought or sold; they are a gift of love and prayer.
We want to stress the Prayers & Squares motto:
“It’s not about the quilt; it’s all about the prayers.”
