"A prayer quilt is the physical representation of the biblical principle 'love thy neighbor.' They are a symbol of faith in God, faith in each other and faith in prayer.  We believe that prayer can be a force for change.  The prayer quilt can bring comfort, strength, joy, and healing."  (by Kimberly Winston in Fabric of Faith:  A Guide to the Prayer Quilt Ministry)

Prayers and Squares Quilt Ministry

Austin Heights Baptist Church is an active member of the International Prayers and Squares Quilt Ministry, Chapter 475. 
We meet to pray and sew most Tuesdays 1-3 pm.  

​When a simple lap-sized quilt is complete, strings are sewn where the seams join.  During worship, we pray as a congregation for someone going through a life crisis.  The quilt is passed around for individual prayers as knots are tied on the strings. 
​The prayers can be "felt".
