Sweet St. Nicholas prayer card with your choice of either a prayer for children or a child's prayer for their parents on the reverse.
Nicholas was born in the later half of the second century in what is now present day Turkey. He was a bishop and was widely esteemed for his practice and teachings of charity and dedication to God. However, it wasn’t until a few hundred years later that the legends regarding his life began circulating.
St. Nicholas’ special devotion is a protector of children stemmed from various accounts in which he came to the aid of children. A popular story is that of a poor father with three daughters. Not having enough money to give them a dowry the young girls were destined to be sold as slaves. To keep his anonymity, Nicholas went to the home under the darkness of night and tossed three bags of gold through on open window. One of the bags is said to have landed in a stocking hanging by the fire place to dry. Humm, sound a bit familiar?
His feast day is widely celebrated throughout Europe with simple gifts, candy, and coins to remind everyone of St. Nicholas’ generosity, compassion, and acts of kindness.
My original illustration, drawn first in pen and digitally colored, printed on 80 lb. stock and finished with a nice heavy lamination. All cards are trimmed by hand (typically mine or one of my two dogs) making them truly a non mass produced item that is unique and created with care.
Card size is 2.5 x 4.5 inches.
Prayer cards are nice little reminders to take small moments out of our hectic days for reflection. Perfect to use as a bookmark, stick in a mirror, or anywhere eyes will happen upon it, and a great little thoughtful item to tuck into a card for a wee gift to mail.
All cards can be personalized on the reverse to celebrate confirmations, baptisms, first communions, church groups, weddings or anniversaries. Minimum order of 12. There is a $20 design fee and will require a 2 or 3 week turnaround time. Please inquire for more information.
Thanks for looking!

Thank you for the quick shipping! These arrived in time so my children could gift them to their friends at Christmas Eve mass. The unique artwork was a hit with them (most were 8-11yrs, but also the younger and teenagers liked as well).
