Currently our church is putting together a prayer room.
A place for people to go and be and spend time with God whenever they want to - day or night.
I was asked to make some cushions for it. Do you remember those ornate hand-stitched cushions you sometimes see in the very old churches - beautiful pieces with hours and hours of work in them?
These are the time poor 21st century version.
I was asked to do the 'kneel' one but I chose the words 'connect' and 'yield'. Because for me ultimately prayer is about that - connecting with a God who loves us, who has walked as a human, who provides a way for us to have real connection.
And I chose yield because ultimately when I yield I find life and relationship that makes me free to be exactly who I am. When I let go and lay down the things I carry that aren't for me to control or worry about I find peace and I know I am safe in the arms of the one who carries me.

Wonderful Miriam - the words you chose are just right, and the cushions themselves are beautiful. What a blessing this room (and those cushions!) will be.
these are great, fresh and modern....I especially love the connect one ")
They are lovely Miriam and I love the meaning and thought behind each. x
