How to Make Prayer Cards

Planning a funeral isn’t an easy task. First, you’re dealing with the painful loss of a loved one while trying to send them off in a significant way. Here at DisciplePress, we are big on sharing responsibilities; that’s why we recommend that you assign some tasks to other members of the family to ease off the weight on your shoulder.

If the departed is a religious person, you should think about making prayer cards distributed to everyone in attendance for the funeral event. In this article, we will look at what prayer cards are and how to create one.

What are Prayer Cards?

Prayer cards are small, laminated cards that reveal details of a deceased and/or a simple poem to remember them by. These cards are shared with everyone in attendance for the funeral service typically held at a place of worship. These cards usually feature a photo of the departed, small details about their personal life, and a selected prayer or poem.

Prayer cards are pocket-sized keepsakes for friends, family, and associates of the deceased to hold on to. It’s a reminder that even though the departed is no longer alive, their memory will live on.

What to Include in a Prayer Card

The importance of having prayer cards at a funeral service cannot be overstated. However, there’s that minor problem of choosing what to include in a prayer card. These cards are different from funeral programs in content and styling.

Funeral programs are booklets containing several sections, including multiple photos of the deceased, biography, eulogies, order of funeral service, selected hymns, and scriptures, thank you note, and many more.

On the other hand, prayer cards are small cards containing small but relevant details about the deceased and the funeral service.

So, what should you include on the prayer card?

  • A photo of the deceased
  • Date of birth and death
  • A selected scripture/poem/song lyrics.

You should submit this information to a professional printing company that will design and deliver these cards in a timely fashion. You can also include details such as the name of the funeral home and cemetery location.
