Basics You Should Know When Picking Prayer Cards

When you find out that someone you know is grieving from a death in the family, your first reaction would probably to offer help. It is also normal to offer some kind of token to express your sympathy. Most people give flower baskets but you can also send funeral prayer cards instead.

Offering prayers is a good choice if the bereaved family is religious. You can also present other things like a memorial tree. This is an unusual choice but is a memorable one. The family can plant your offering at home or at the gravesite to serve as a lifelong memorial to the dead.

Another great idea is to offer a slab of stone with a nice quote engraved in it. Instead of offering a card, this unique piece of decor can be installed in a garden. It can also be placed indoors in a special place of the house. Have something memorable etched into the piece that will bring back good memories of the dead.

If you have photographs of the deceased that the family members do not have copies of, consider compiling them into an album. The recipients will appreciate this gift, especially if they have never seen the pictures before. Most family members collect items of the deceased after they die and this could make a good offering to them.

You bring food for the grieving family. This is a common offering and you can also pitch in if they are holding a reception after the funeral. It might be a good idea to offer non-perishable items for the guests. Food that will not spoil easily can be served throughout the entire wake.

You can offer prayer cards during or after the interment. You can also give it together with some flowers. Pay attention to the presentation of your card. A good way to present it is to have the card placed in a nice leather case.
