Things to Write in a Religious Get Well Card

Updated on October 3, 2017

Receiving a card when you are sick or going through a longer-term illness can mean so much. There are ideas here that can help you come up with the right words for a difficult time. Consider putting a smile on someone's face today that needs it. Or you may encourage their spirits by sending an uplifting note or card.

This article isn't just for religious people but includes many get well sentiments that include mention of God, for example. I personally think God can bring personal comfort in a very real way to people that are struggling and hurting and have heard many stories that are a testament to that. Even if you are not a believer in God, you can find ideas here to use in cards that can be adapted for wishing people well that are struggling with their health in one way or another.
