    Here is a pic of the prayer square I made for our Pastor who had quadruple bypass surgery today. I have included a pic of the book it came from. The title of the block is "Steps to the Altar" and the scripture is Matthew 11:28-30. For a prayer square, you tie instead of quilt. Then people say a prayer for the recipient as they tie a knot. They are small enough to tuck in a bag, set on a nightstand, etc.

    Here's to a speedy recovery for your Pastor.

    What a great idea ... and your book looks like it'd be interesting!

    For prayer squares .... is the intention that the maker keeps it to continue the prayers? or do you now give it to your Pastor?

    FYI, the 2nd picture of the book you mentioned is not showing. Or maybe you are still posting it?

    1) pic of book was upside down and hubby was fixing it.
    2) after people knot their prayers in, you give it to the person you are praying for as a tangible reminder to them that they are covered in prayer.

    I think this is a great idea, thanks for sharing. Would be great for men, considering they don't care for prayer shawls. I like this idea very much.

    What an appropriate block and keepsake. I hope he knows there are more prayers being said than knots. I do hope he is recovering well.

    We do prayer quilts in our church. Lap size or a little larger in any pattern the quilter wishes. It is on the altar rail during the morning service when needed, then moved to a corner of the community room afterwards. The congregation prays corporately for the person, then individually as each congregation member who wishes to ties a knot or two. Recipients have found the blanket of prayers very powerful.

    I was just on the Prayers and Squares website. there is a pattern for making a large cross in the backing. That has definite possibilities.

    gzulivz, your Prayer Square is lovely. Your pastor will feel the love that has gone into it. I just realized what your name says. :thumbup:

    How very special that you made this for your paster. I will pray for his recovery. The prayer square is a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing the picture of the book (name & author).

    I hope your pastor recovers quickly! Such a nice gift for him - he can remember all those who prayed for him with this quilt! This is a great idea for those who are going through difficulty. I'm going to look up the book!
