Prayers & Squares
What we do:
The purpose of this ministry is NOT to make and distribute quilts, but to promote prayer through the use of quilts. These quilts are made available to those who are having health issues, facing surgery, illness or difficult life changes.
The quilts are hung in a visible location during Worship Services. There will be an information sheet accompanying each quilt that gives the name of the person, the reason for prayer and specific prayer requests. After you have offered a silent prayer for the person, tie a knot in a string.
The Quilt with multiple knots in the strings is something tangible that continually comforts and is a constant reminder of the many prayers offered on behalf of the recipient!
The idea behind these quilts is simple. 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 said for the person to whom the quilt is being given. It becomes a physical manifestation of all the prayers offered on his/her behalf.
The quilt is a statement of faith in God and His power to comfort, strengthen, and heal. But the greatest need of all is PRAYER for the quilt recipients and that God will use Prayers & Squares Quilt Ministry to touch lives for HIM!
Who can get a quilt?
Quilts are only given to those who ask for prayer. It could be a family member, friend, or a brother or sister in Christ.
A recipient must be asked first if he or she would like to receive a Prayer Quilt. They could be uncomfortable being the focus of prayer and may not want their situation known.
It is not our purpose to make and distribute quilts. Surprise and Gift Quilts are not part of this ministry. The prayer quilt ministry has one simple purpose: PRAYER!
