What is a Prayer Quilt?

This type of quilt is a "lap" quilt, laced with heavy thread. These laces, or threads, are tied with a square knot by members of the quilting group and congregation. The quilts are a gift of love and prayer. They are a statement to our belief in prayer and our faith in God and in His power to comfort, strengthen, and heal.

Each Knot Represents a PrayerThe idea behind these prayer quilts is simple. As each knot is tied, a silent prayer is offered for someone in special need, who then receives the finished quilt. Cards with information about the recipients are available so that people can continue to remember them in their prayers.

Principles of The Prayer Quilt Ministry

Here are the basic principles we follow within the Prayer Quilt Ministry of Woodalwn Baptist Church:

1. Prayer is the activity of our ministry. Our goal is to involve as many people as possible in our prayer efforts and to actively model lives of prayer among all ministry members.

2. We pray to the one true God - the God of Abraham, Issac, Jacob, and Jesus. We believe He is the only God, therefore, He is the One we turn to for help.

3. We never accept any form of payment for our quilts or for prayer. Anyone receiving quilts will not be obligated to Woodlawn Baptist Church in any way.
