Prayer Quilt – Fabric and Faith

16 04 2012


Amy and family continue to be elated with the response to the Photo/Card shower!  One month later, she continues to receive mail daily with amazing stories, caring words, uplifting photos and continued prayers and inspiration.  She’s also received shirts, sweatshirt, beaded crosses, monetary gifts and many other thoughtful unique items.   Above is a photo of one of those remarkable gifts sent by a blog follower, Mary, aka mommaquilts.  It’s a Prayer Quilt.  Enclosed with the quilt is a story behind it that we’d like to share with you.

There are prayers in every stitch.  The ties have been left long so that your friends and family can add more knots and prayers to this quilt.  Even if the knots come loose or out, the prayers stay in the quilt.  There is symbolism in the color choices:

  • Green is for renewal
  • Blue is for anointing
  • Pink is for healing
  • Red is for the Blood of Christ shed for our salvation
  • Yellow is for the Glory of God

There are 3 commandments that are followed before giving the quilt:  ask permission to give, it’s about the prayers, not the quilting, and no payment accepted for the quilt.  It is a gift for you.

This is just one example of how generous, kind and loving you have all been.  I’m thankful that I get the honor to deliver these wonderful heartening packages to Amy and witness her beam as she opens them and reads them. 

Amy continues to be a strong willed woman and is fighting with all her might.  Please continue to pray for her and that she finds comfort and strength knowing how much she is loved.

We still have the PO Box open if you’d still like to send something.

Thank you on behalf of Amy, Don and Theo! 

Keeping the faith,
