What we do

Prayers and Squares Prayer Quilts

Prayers and Squares combines the gift of prayer with the gift of a hand-tied quilt. The purpose of Prayers and Squares is not to make and distribute quilts, but to promote prayer through the use of quilts. Our motto is: “It’s not about the quilt; it’s all about the prayers.”

Each Knot Represents a Prayer
The idea behind these prayer 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 know. As each knot is tied, a silent prayer is offered for the person in need — someone who has asked us to pray for them. The quilt is then given to that person. What makes each quilt unique is not the pattern, colour or workmanship, but the fact that prayer is symbolically tied into each one. These quilts are a statement of faith, and a testimony to our belief in God and in the power of prayer.

Please contact us if your would like more information, would like to make a donation or if you know of someone who is in need of a prayer quilt.
