Personal Prayer

A Simple Aid To Personal Prayer

a simple aid to personal prayer using the thumb and fingers of a hand. This is a way of remembering what to pray, and who to pray for:

1. Thumb – say thank you (thumbs up!) for good things and blessings

2. 1st finger – the ‘pointing’ finger – point to yourself (not others) and say sorry for wrong things you’ve done

3. Middle finger – the longest/tallest finger – pray about ‘big issues’ and/ or for the Leaders who have responsibility for solving them

4. 3rd finger – the ‘ring’ finger – pray for those you love, family and friends

5. Little finger –the weakest finger – pray for those who are weakest: the sick and the suffering – and a little prayer for yourself at the end
