Prayers & Squares

Can you touch a prayer? Can you pull it close and feel its comfort? You can if it is part of a prayer quilt!

Our Motto: It's not about the quilt, it's all about the prayers.

What is a prayer quilt?

  • A prayer quilt is a statement of our faith in God and our belief in God's power to comfort, strengthen and heal.
  • A prayer quilt is a lap sized cover, hand tied with knots.
  • As each knot is tied a prayer is offered for the recipient who is to receive the prayer quilt.
  • When fully tied the prayer quilt is given as a gift of love and prayer.

Who may receive a prayer quilt?

  • Anyone who is facing special need for prayer - be it physical, emotional or spiritual - when they are sponsored.

What is the role of a sponsor? 

  • To ask the proposed recipient whether he/she will accept the gift of prayer in the form of a quilt and, if so, what prayers they want offered.
  • To request a prayer quilt from the Prayers & Squares team.
  • To deliver the completed Prayer Quilt to the recipient.

How can you help?

  • You don't have to be a quilter or even a sewer. This is a team effort!
  • We will need donations of 100% cotton fabrics. 
  • We will also need funds to buy other necessary bits and pieces such as batting and polar fleece for backing the quilts.
  • You can offer your quilting talents and help make the quilts.
