Crochet Prayer Squares

My pal Melody over at Hooking Stitches is often an inspiration to me, and her Prayer Squares are no exception.

I'm making up small granny prayer squares to put with other gifts that I give to family and friends. The squares only take a moment or two to make, but I reflect in prayer for the recipient while I'm crocheting them. They're small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and to tuck into a pocket, so the person receiving one can have a tangible message of God's love at any time.

I sent out two packages to friends the other day and included these little prayer squares along with them. These friends have blessed me over the years, and it's just a small way to ask God's blessings upon them, to carry them through the day.

I'm hoping to expand this little ministry of mine, so please share any ideas you may have of people that might like to receive prayer squares. I would love to send them to deployed troops and missionaries.

Thank you for sharing this, and for sharing Hooking Stitches. I am starting a Prayer Bear ministry and I would also like to add one of these little prayer squares with the bear! God bless all our LOVE in Christ Jesus ministries for HIS GLORY! Hallelujah

Hi I am making prayer cloths for my Church and I stumbled across your website. I absolutely love your prayer cloths in the granny square pattern. I wanted to thank you for sharing your pattern.
