Maybe I've mentioned this before in my blog, but to this day I can rattle off the night prayer that I prayed when I was a little girl. Mom taught me how to pray to Goddie, and I prayed that He would take care of my mommy, daddy, my sibling, myself, gramma, grampa, my special cousins and my best friends. My prayer would close by saying, "Mary with her loving Son, bless us each and every one."
The Five Finger Way to Pray
- Our thumb is nearest to us, so start by praying for those closest to us.
- The next is the pointing finger. Pray for those who impart knowledge, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, priests and other church ministry. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction.
- The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders who stand tall among us. Pray for the president, the vice-president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion.
