Five Fingered Prayer
reflections on prayer
Our thumb is nearest us. So let us begin our prayers by praying
for those closest to us. They are the easiest to remember. To
pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a "sweet
index finger is our pointing finger. Pray for those who teach,
instruct and heal. This includes teachers, caregivers, and ministers.
They need our support, and they need wisdom in pointing others
in the right direction. Keep them in our prayers.
middle finger is the tallest finger. It can remind us of our
leaders. Pray for our president, leaders in business and industry,
and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide
public opinion. They need God's guidance.
next finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact
that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will testify.
It can remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble,
or in pain. They need our prayers day and night. We cannot pray
too much for them.
lastly, our pinkie, 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." Our pinkie can remind us to
pray for ourselves. By the time we have prayed for the other
four groups, our own needs can be put into proper perspective,
and we will be able to pray for ourselves more effectively.
