5 finger prayer







I had never heard this before. This is beautiful - and it is surely
worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.

1. Your thumb is nearest you.. So begin your prayers by praying for
those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for
our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a 'sweet duty.'

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach,
instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers.
They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right
direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our
leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and
administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public
opinion. They need God's guidance..

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the
fact that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will
testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in
trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot
pray too much for them.

5.. And lastly comes our little finger - the smallest finger of all
which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and
others. As the Bible says, 'The least shall be the greatest among
you.' Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time
you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put
into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more
effectively.

If you decide to send this to a friend, you might brighten someone's
day! Pass this on to someone special... I did.



Don't tell God how big your storm is, Tell the storm how big your God is!!!!!
