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
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
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
