What is Prayers & Squares?
Prayers & Squares is an interfaith outreach ministry that combines the gift of a hand-tied quilt with the gift of prayer for someone in need. The essence of this ministry is in the prayers offered for the recipient; it is not about the quilts.
What is a Prayer Quilt?
Very simply, a prayer quilt is a quilt that is made with love and tied with prayers. Each knot tied into the quilt represents a prayer that is offered specifically for someone in need of those prayers. As our congregation gathers for Sunday worship, the quilt is blessed and all present are invited to tie knots into the quilt representing prayers, love and concern for the recipient. It is also our custom to sign a card for the recipient with brief notes of encouragement and love.
