Five Finger Prayer

Five Finger Prayer

1. Your thumb is the nearest to you. So begin your prayer 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. I
t reminds us of our leaders. Pray for
the president, leaders in industry and business, 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 fa
ct 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 pinky should remind you
to pray for yourself.

    Such a wonderful guide. Although I pray po for some people but hindi po araw-araw. It’s always been for my family’s safety, guidance, etc. and mine too. Never thought I need to pray for others din pala palagi. Maraming salamat.
