Today’s Prayer to Passage comes from the children’s book ‘The Quilt Story’ by Tony Johnston and Tomie dePaola.

Today I pray, “Dear God, Your mosaic heirloom is a comfort. Every small peace creates a peace that transcends all human understanding and covers us in love. Thank You for Your protection. Amen.”

Following my prayer, I opened the book to find this passage:

“One day when the quilt
was very old and very loved,
Abigail folded it carefully
and put it in the attic.
Everyone forgot it was there.”

Yes, our faith is not our great-grandmother’s faith. So let’s take it down, unfold it, and repurpose it to fit a California King. Modernizing God shows us that God is God. Still a Heavenly comfort. Waiting to wrap us in love and remind us that someone from our past cared enough to gift it to us through generations. Even in a fast-paced, busy, modern life — God’s got us covered.
