Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Prayer Cards

I cleaned the front of my refrigerator today. It's a strange project to start when you're suffering from a head cold, but at least I was productive. Attached with tape to the front of my fridge were all of these prayer cards pictured here. Some of them were getting kind of dog-eared and dirty, so I decided I need to find a better place for them. I have about 30 more tucked away in a basket. Any suggestions for what to do with them? I'm thinking some sort of album, but I want to be able to take them out to read the prayers. I'd love to know what you do with yours.



  1. Mine are strewn about the house. Some are bookmarks. Some are in the girls' dress-up purses. Really, they are all over. What I would do, if I was motivated and organized, is laminate them, and then punch a hole in the corner and put them all on a ring. Then you can keep them all together, and they won't get damaged as quickly.

  2. We have some of the laminated ones on a ring for our youngest son.

    The others are used in each of our children's *prayer corners* set up in their room. Have you seen the postcard/photo holders where a card can just be slipped in between the metal? I've found a multitude of them at yard sales/thrift stores. Each bedroom has one and the kids put their patron saint holy cards and other prayers cards in those. Also, the French bulletin boards do well....just tuck the holy/prayer card behind the ribbon.

  3. Have you thought about making a meditation book>
    Find a meditation you like and print it on a page
    Then on the lift side put the prayer card face up in a clear sheet protector
    That way you can still read the back of the prayer card and have a spiritual "helper" if you choose!

    Also I use some of mine for favorite Bible bookmarks!

    I keep a few in my favorite reread books that I reread at least yearly.

    You have a great collection!

  4. I like the album idea. Albums for baseball/trading cards would be perfect. They have slots about the size of a holy card, are clearplastic and the cards can be viewed form both sides without being removed. (I didn't read your other blogs before i wrote this. bet someone has already suggested this.) ss

  5. Our kids school sent home a ring with a note attached instructing us to clip each prayer card that was sent home to it. I agree with Michelle, though, if they're not laminated the ring is useless for the long term. I keep some in my bible and others in our family bible and still a few more in my guardian angel visor clip in the car.


  6. I like the idea of doing a hole punch and a ring. I might have to do that. :)


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
