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 end s are left free to be tied with a square knot. As each knot is tied, a silent prayer if offered for someone is 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. Through Prayers & Squares, thousands of quilts have been distributed, each a special gift of love. They have been made for sick babies, for cancer and AIDS patients, for adults and children facing surgery or difficult family situations-for many reason, but each for someone in special need of the healing power of prayer.
