The Five Finger Prayer

Posted Oct 30 2010 12:00am
When you fold your hands, the thumb is nearest you. So begin by praying for those closest to you—your loved ones (Philippians 1:3-5).
The index finger is the pointer. Pray for those who teach—Bible teachers and preachers, and those who teach children (1 Thessalonians 5:25).
The next finger is the tallest. It reminds you to pray for those in authority over you—national and local leaders, and your supervisor at work
(1 Timothy 2:1-2).
The fourth finger is usually the weakest. Pray for those who are in trouble or who are suffering (James 5:13-16).Then comes your little finger. It reminds you of your smallness in relation to God's greatness. Ask Him to supply your needs (Philippians 4:6,19).Whatever method you use, just talk with your Father. He wants to hear what's on your heart.~ Author Unknown
There are many different versions of the Five Finger Prayer.  I like this one because it involves praying for others. It is so easy to get focused on our own needs, especially when involved in a crisis like Cancer. Yet we are told: "Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. "~Philippians 2:4.  May this tool help us to do just that!
