The Five Finger Model of Prayer

Here is a way of praying for others by using your fingers to trigger you into thinking about different groups of people.

Thumb: Those furthest away – missionaries, persecuted Christians, friends and families overseas.

1st finger: Those people who lead and guide us, pointing the way (ministers, teachers etc.)

2nd finger: The strongest finger – those people with power and responsibility (governments etc.)

Ring finger: Those people we love – family, friends.

Little finger: Those who are ill, weak, infirm, old, poor, helpless…

Whole hand: Pray for yourself finally, offering your hands to God to serve Him as praying and serving hands for all the people you meet.
