Prayer template


Edited: Sep 23


My first Bible Quilt page I did a few years ago was on prayer and I've done many variations since then.


I realized this morning in my Quiet Time that I hadn't ever done the Lord's Prayer, so I decided to do a solo page on it using the Prayer template.

I only have two metallic gel pens, but recently I've been using them a lot. I thought they'd make a simple, yet bold title.


Then I figured out how I wanted to stretch out the phrases and began writing the verses:



Since I separated some of the verses, I used color blocking to maintain a loose connection.



I finished with the same colored pencils I had used lightly in the squares to be bolder as the patches behind the Prayer title. Then I added a few strips of washi tape...nothing fancy, just filling up some spaces.

My friend, Sarah, did this template in a striking blue and orange color palette.

  • I decided to experiment with my computer software in both Word and Pages on Mac. Below is is a Fruit of the Spirt template that was created using the shapes off the Pages program.
  • I added this 2-page template set to the shop this week and I'm using a #30daysofgratitude series I've been following to fill in my pages. ( Gratitude Documented 2019 ) There are SO many 30-day or 31-day series on social media that you can use these to harvest verses on a particular theme quickly. (Be sure and check references, though, because sometimes there are typos or misquotes. ) I thought I'd share how I'm using the flip card set to gather up my verses. This allows me to type/write out full verses to gauge the length of the verses to determine the main word/phrase I'll add to my #biblequiltjournal page. It also gives me a handy set to carry with me in my purse/car so the daily verse is reinforced as I move throughout my day. You could also pass along a completed flip card set to a daughter/mother or friend to give them a quick start on a page, or just to bless them. The squares on the templates are intentionally not numbered, so you can have variety as you do different themes. It also gives you a chance to number in whatever sequence works for you. You can handwrite, stamp or use stickers to number each square. I finished my verses on my flip card set, then glued my template pages into my Bible Quilt journal. I did a washi border around the edges on both pages so the 2-page spread looks more continuous. Then I started adding verses... We're halfway through #gratitudedocumented2019! How is your month going?? What theme will you use for your #30daysof_____ templates?? Please share your ideas/pages in comments below!
  • The block template has 12 open spaces for verses and is a great starter page for any topic. There's a treasure trove of verses on strength, so I kept going for a second page... Since the #blocktemplate is one of the printed designs in the Bible Quilt journal, you can add a printable block template to the facing page to create a 2-page spread for topics that have a lot of verses (i.e. faith, hope, love, joy). The block template is available in the shop. It's a straightforward one to do if you've got someone you'd like to share your #biblequilting journey with! Please share your pages you've done on the block template in the comments section below: #blocktemplate #strength
