I come to the garden alone,
While the dew is still on the roses;
And He walks with me,
and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own.
How To Pray
The "Five Finger Prayer" is a simple yet effective way to pray.
1) Your Thumb is nearest to 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 "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. 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 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 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 effectively.
