Free Printable Prayers for Your Printing and Praying Pleasure, and a "Good News on the Farm" Update

A couple months ago, Bonnie asked me to make her some suitable-for-framing graphic images of some prayers: The Morning Offering, and The Act of Contrition. So I did, and I made them downloadable, for YOU.

Then I made a St. Michael Prayer, because that's my favorite. (Oops, I didn't make that one downloadable, so you can save it as an image, or I made a new big one, below.)

Since then, I've had a few more requests. I'm really enjoying my little budding graphic design career here, especially because it allows me to do something creative that can be accomplished in one sitting and underneath a sleeping baby. Winning.

I was really touched by your outpouring of support for Christina and her family. We raised hundreds of dollars for her, and she was able to get a loan for the rest of the money they needed, and they keep the farm! Yay!

As a thank you, I made you guys even MORE printable prayers. I wish I could send one to each of you who donated. But I'm not so good with logistics. So, please thank yourself from Christina and me by downloading one or more of these prayers and, um, printing or ordering one for yourself. With my compliments.


Shutterfly tells me they should print well up to 20x30, and right now that size is $22.99, and an 8x10 is only $3.99.

Right click on the image to save it to your computer, or click on the title of the prayer to download it. You are welcome to save and download and print them for your own personal use. If you use them online, please link back to the blog. Please do not sell them without my permission. To request a custom printable, visit my Etsy shop here.









 and The Angelus (requested by Bonnie of A Knotted Life, again!):


and The St. Michael Prayer (for my Mother in Law and her classrooms full of high school boys):





You can still donate to Christina in any amount, if you're so moved:

  4. Yay! Thanks, Kendra!
    Also, if one has to be out running errands anyways then take the images on a jump drive to Office Max or a similar store. My 8x10s were about $1.

  5. I think I might have to print out the Grace Before Meals for my mom's kitchen- we grew up on that prayer! Of course, my sister thought it was "Bless us, O Lord, and these thigh gifts..." until she was nine.

    "Thighs? Why thighs? We're not even having chicken!"

  6. The grace graphics are really pretty. They remind me of an antique print we picked up on our honeymoon in New Orleans - it has the two prayers written side by side in fancy font with decorative scrollwork around the outside.

  7. I have a friend who is moving into a new home after a along time and a lot of flooding and having to sell her house for almost nothing. The grace printables will be a PERFECT addition to her housewarming gift. Thanks Kendra

    1. Thanks Laura. I use PicMonkey. You can do a lot with the free version, but since I use it so much, I upgraded to their Royale membership.

  15. This is exactly the kind of thing we need. I've been searching for something with the after-meal Grace (having never learned it) and this is perfect! Thanks.

  16. I love these! As an almost Catholic convert (next Easter!) and a new Catholic School teacher, these will wonderful to have in my classroom.

  17. I LOVE the grace before/after meals. I really want to get them printed on canvas and hung in our dining room, just gotta wait for the right time. For now, I'll print them and tape them up (My husband HATES tape on the walls, so maybe this will be extra incentive for him to agree with me, lol).

    1. I just made two of these into canvas prints myself and I was SO thrilled with how they came out. :) Incredibly economical and easy ( I am NOT crafty at all!)

  18. I read this post yesterday morning and was super excited to see the Grace Before/After Meals prints you made! I had actually been looking at a Grace Before Meals wooden sign on Etsy (as I had a certain place I was wanting to hang it in our kitchen), but it was SO expensive. I had your prints printed and framed yesterday afternoon and had my hubby hang them on the kitchen wall last night. I wish I could attach a picture of them to this comment because they look great (and even better than that expensive wooden Etsy sign I had been wanting)! My husband and I have always prayed the Grace Before Meals, but weren't really aware of the Grace After Meals - so we're looking forward to memorizing that one together (with the help of your print!). Down the road, I'm hoping to print/frame the other prayers you made as well! Thanks so much for making these available :)

We don't always have to agree, where's the fun in that? But no name calling or speculating about what people "really" think or mean.

Sorry, no more anonymous comments. Too much spam/unpleasantness!
