IF YOU don't know how to pray, here's a guide:

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.

5. And lastly comes our little finger - the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to
God and others. As we have been taught, ' 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.

we had a visiting minister one Sunday and this was his whole sermon. I had never heard it and now it's in print. It is a great guide for me. nobody/nothing gets left out using this one.
