Verse Libary

Choosing a special verse to print on the programs given out by a funeral or remembrance service, or on the memorial prayer cards, is popular. Families often select a verse that is important to their loved one or captures the emotions of the family towards them.

A list of verses that can be printed on services and prayer cards can be found below. To read the verse in complete, click on the heading.

Prayer Cards

For several families, prayer cards, often referred to as memorial cards, are a time-honored keepsake. Typically, they would feature a portrait of your loved one and a special verse or obituary. A prayer card should be held in a Bible, scrapbook or diary as a reminder during the service. Verses from the Prayer Card are mentioned below.

Create a list of the name of the verse and share it with the funeral director.
