Imagine that you are seriously ill and someone comes by to see you bringing with him or her a beautiful and lovingly made prayer quilt. Each of the ties between the square represent the many prayers of Saint Mark folks who have stopped to tie a knot and say a personal prayer just for you. These lovely quilts fit nicely in the lap or around the shoulders, or across the bed to add color and warmth. It is a tangible reminder that people have prayed for you by name. Is there someone that you know who would love to receive one of these prayer quilts?
Before submitting this request, please ask the recipient if he or she is ready to accept a prayer quilt and what specific prayers are requested. Please provide a photograph of the recipient (if possible) to be displayed when the quilt is available to tie.
