Your thumb is nearest to you. So begin your prayers by praying for those
closest to you. They are the easiest to remember.
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.
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.
The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising
to many is the fact that this is our weakest
finger. It should remind us to pray for those
who are weak, in trouble or in pain.
And lastly comes our little finger; the smallest
finger of all. Which is where we should
place ourselves in relation to GOD and
others. Your pinky 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
Pass this on to all who are dear to
and remember them in your prayers.
