Prayers & Squares

Quilt Ministry

Prayers and Squares is an International Ministry started by Hope United Methodist Church in California. The purpose of the ministry is to make prayer quilts for any individual that someone feels will benefit from prayers. The quilts are made in love with each knot on the quilt representing a prayer. The quilt is put together by prayer knots.

“Three Commandments” of Prayers & Squares

Remember the Prayers & Squares motto: “It’s not about the quilt, it’s all about the prayers.” The purpose of your ministry must be to promote an active prayer life among the participants, not just to make and give away quilts. Strive to involve as many people as possible in your prayer efforts.

You must ask before you give the gift of a prayer quilt; surprises are not appropriate. Ask if the person to receive the quilt will accept your gift of prayer. Ask what they would like you to pray for. Ask what information about their situation may be shared with others.

Do not accept any form of payment for a prayer quilt; it is a gift of love and prayer which cannot be bought or sold. Those who request or receive prayer quilts must not be made to feel obligated to Prayers & Squares in any way.

If you know of someone who would benefit from a prayer quilt please contact the church office.
