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 your loved ones is “sweet duty.”
The next finger is your pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct, and heal. This includes Teachers, Doctors, and Ministers, and Feng Shui masters. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction.
The next finger is the tallest finger and it reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the President, leaders in business, industry and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need lots of guidance.
Your next finger is your ring finger. Surprisingly to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger as any piano teacher can testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble, and in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You can’t pray too much for them.
And lastly is your little finger, the smallest finger of all. It is where we should place ourselves in relation to GOD and others. As the bible states, “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 4 groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.
Should you feel it hard to get sleep tonight, just remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.
Let’s start the new year by being thankful for everything we have and let’s plant seeds of prayer. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
