The Five Finger Prayer

This is a good prayer to teach little kids. They like the visual and can remember it.

Look at your hand. Each finger represents a different group of people.

The thumb, closest to you, represents those nearest to you. Your family and loved ones. Pray daily that God will love and guide them. The pointer finger represents those who point you to God. Your pastor, prayer partners, members of your small group, etc.

The middle finger, the largest, represents leaders in the church and the world – including government. They need God’s guidance.

The fourth finger, the ring finger, is the weakest and represents the weak and needy. People who are in trouble or in pain. And the little finger, the smallest, represents you. After you’ve prayed for the other four groups, pray for your needs.
