    The Five Finger Prayer:

    1. Your thumb is nearest 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."

    2. 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.

    3. 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.

    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 pray too much for them.<SCRIPT><!--D(["mb","\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:10pt;font-family:Arial\"\u003e*\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cb\u003e\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:10pt;font-family:Arial\"\u003e5.\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/b\u003e\u003cspan style\u003d\"font-size:10pt;font-family:Arial\"\u003e And lastly comes our little finger; the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others.

    Some people think that prayer just means asking for things and if they fail to receive exactly what they asked for, they think the whole thing is a fraud.

    All prayers are answered if we are willing to admit that sometimes the answer is "no".

    If God listened to the prayers of men, mankind would quickly perish: for people are forever praying for evil against one another.<SCRIPT><!--D(["mb","\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cfont size\u003d\"3\"\u003e\u003cfont face\u003d\"Times New Roman\"\u003e*\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cspan style\u003d\"color:red\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePrayer is not merely an occasional impulse to which we respond when we are in trouble; prayer is a life attitude.\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cfont size\u003d\"3\"\u003e\u003cfont face\u003d\"Times New Roman\"\u003e*\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePrayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cfont size\u003d\"3\"\u003e\u003cfont face\u003d\"Times New Roman\"\u003e*\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cfont face\u003d\"Times New Roman\" size\u003d\"3\"\u003e-----\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e\u003cfont size\u003d\"3\"\u003e\u003cfont face\u003d\"Times New Roman\"\u003e*\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/font\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style\u003d\"margin:0cm 0cm 0pt\"\u003e*\u003c/p\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cbr clear\u003d\"all\"\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan\u003e*\u003c/span\u003e\n",0]);//--></SCRIPT>

    Prayer is not merely an occasional impulse to which we respond when we are in trouble; prayer is a life attitude.

    Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.
