Prayer

Just found this while going through my notebook and thought you might like to see it. It's a guide to prayer - called "Five Finger Praying". You look at your hand to remind you of these prayer points:

Five Finger Praying
Thumb - (closest to me) - Pray for those near me; family, friends, neighbors
Index finger - (points) - Pray for teachers, preachers, guides
Middle finger - (largest -stands above others) - Pray for rulers of country, city and state officials
Ring finger - (weakest) - Pray for the weak, the sick, the poor
Little finger - (me) - Pray for yourself and the things you need
And with your hand, give praises and thanks to the Lord.

Hope the VBS is going well. We were involved in VBSs for many many years. We have a lot of good memories and a few not so good.
Blessings.
