SPIRITUALITY- FIVE FINGER PRAYER
It is really worth making this five finger prayer a part of our lives. It will bring compassion towards others and as we are loving the creation of the creator, the creator will start loving us the way we want to be loved and cared.
1) Your Thumb is nearest to you. So begin your prayers by praying for those nearest to you-Parents, Spouse etc . Consider it as our sweet duty.
2) The next finger is Pointing Finger. Pray for those who teach you, instruct and heal. This include your teachers , doctors,ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.
3)The next finger is your 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 pay too much for them,
5) And at last comes our Little finger-the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in realtion to GOD and others.
BUT BY THE TIME YOU HAVE PRAYED FOR THE OTHER FOUR GROUPS, YOUR OWN NEEDS WILL BE PUT IN TO PROPER PERSPECTIVE AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PRAY FOR YOURSLEF MORE EFFECTIVELY.
