Five Finger Prayer- An easy way to pray...............

" Prayer does not equip us for the Greater work. Prayer is the Greater work." Oswald Chambers

Have you ever thought folding hands while praying had a meaning?? Here is an easy way to pray.

1. Your Thumb is nearest to you when you fold your hands. So begin our prayer by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember.

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

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. This reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the country, our nation, our leaders. 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 our prayer always.

5. Last but definetely not the least is our little finger, the smallest finger of all which is where should place our relation to God and others. As Bible says, " The least shall be the greatest among you." 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.

we get to come boldly to the throne of grace
God puts our prayers in viles then pours them out
theres so many wonderful things to expect when
we pray for every area of need, nothing passes by our
God. 2 Tim 2:16 thanks for sharing this Blessing

Elizabeth, i totally agree with you. Prayer makes things straight. Prayer is the respiration of the soul and five finger prayer is an easy way to remember to pray for everyone. This is esp good way to teach children.
