The mission of Hilldale Baptist Church “Blanketed with Prayer Ministry” is to provide individuals in times of special needs with handmade prayer blankets as tangible evidence of the love and prayers of our church for the recipient.
- Each blanket is handmade.
- Each knot on the blanket represents a prayer that was prayed for the individual receiving the blanket.
- We pray for the individual by name.
- There are, on average, over 200 knots on each blanket, meaning 200+ prayers are prayed.
