"The Five Finger Prayer"

The Five Finger Prayer


1. The Thumb is nearest you, so begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you..
As C. S. Lewis once said, praying for loved ones is a “sweet duty.”
2. The pointing finger in next. 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.
3. The middle finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators.
4. The ring finger is next. This is our weakest finger. Let it remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain.
5. Finally, our little finger, the smallest finger of all. 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.

I heard this long ago & had loved it but had forgotten most of it.
