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 our loved ones is,
as C. S. Lewis once said, a "sweet duty."

The next finger is the pointing finger.
Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal.
This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers.
They need support and wisdom in pointing others
in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.

The next finger is the 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.

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 pray too much for
them.

And lastly comes our little finger;
the smallest finger of all. This is where
we should place ourselves in relation to
God and others. As the Bible says,
"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 four groups,
your own needs will be put into proper perspective
and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.
Should you find it hard to get to sleep tonight,
just remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.
