Bethlehem Olive Wood Comfort Cross | Holy Land Holding Cross | Palm Prayer Cross

$ 5.95

Holy Land olive wood comfort crosses, sometimes referred to as holding crosses, palm crosses, or prayer crosses, are individually hand-carved and smoothly sanded from a single piece of olive wood pruned from the olive trees that flourish around the holy city of Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus located just south of Jerusalem. The grain pattern of each olive wood comfort cross is distinctively unique, magnificently created by our Heavenly Father just as He has created each of us. 

We pray that the Holy Land olive wood comfort crosses serve as a reassuring reminder that God is with you always and everywhere. As you cling to His promises, we pray that you are comforted by the knowledge that your days are held securely in His hands.

    Best Gift Idea

    I ordered 5 comfort crosses to give away as gifts to friends and family.
    The quality is beautiful, and I love that it comes with bible verses. The package arrived really fast, and I appreciate how it was wrapped with thought and care.
    I own one already and every time I feel down, travel or pray I love holding on to my comfort cross and this is what I wanted to share with my family and friends.
    Thank you Deborah and Rhett!
