What to Write in a Christian Sympathy Card

Death is viewed differently depending upon your religious faith. For Christians, finding the right religious wording to use in your condolence card is important. Here is a look at some great examples of what to write in a Christian sympathy card to help get you encouraged.

“I am at a loss for words over your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences.”

“I am not good with words. I hope you can find some comfort from my card anyway.”

“I can’t think of anything I can say that will make everything better. I do want you to know that I love you and that I am available to talk.”

“I could not possibly understand what you are feeling. I want to send you my deepest sympathy. I’m willing to listen.”

“I know loss can be difficult, so I’ll be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.”

“I know that even though you have a loss, you still have some great memories. I hope those memories will give you comfort.”

“I know that I can’t fix the pain you feel. I want you to know I feel for you, I’m thinking of you, and I’d do anything to help you.”

“I like to believe that when we lose someone close to us, they still live through us and give us strength. The time we have spent with those we’ve lost makes them part of us.”

“I love you and want to let you know that I will help you in any way you think I can. Just name it.”

“I want you to know that I am sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences.”

“I want you to know that I am willing to help you in any way. I’ll be in touch with you to check in on you and see how you are doing.”

“I will pray for your family during this difficult time. I will ask God to give you comfort, strength, and peace.”

“I would like to send my condolences to you and your family. I’ll keep you in my prayers.”

“I’m available if you need to talk. Expect me to call you soon if I don’t hear from you first.”

“Life is complex, and so is death. The feelings that follow a death can be easier to navigate with a friend. Please let me know if you want someone to listen.”

“Our Lord is mightier than anything we may face. He will comfort those who mourn, and we will all celebrate with him eventually.”

“Please forgive me for my loss of words at this time. I will be praying for you and your family. My condolences.”

“There is almost an endless number of emotions to feel when someone you care about passes on. Those feelings can become intense. Let me know if you’d like someone to share the burden of your feelings with you.”

“This card isn’t meant to do anything for you but let you know that I am thinking of you at this time. I am sorry for your loss.”

“Those we lose continue on in our hearts and memories.”

“We are all left with a large hole from our loss. We will have to trust God to fill it.”

“We can celebrate together and honor the lives of those who have passed, but we need each other for support. Don’t hesitate to call anytime.”
