5fingerprayer4A huge hat tip to my reader Karina Susanto, who republished The Five Finger Prayer three years ago.

The Five Finger Prayer, used by both Catholics and Protestants, is a great method for young and old alike.

We begin by praying for those closest to us, progressing to those in leadership and authority over us. As our ring finger is our weakest finger, we pray for those who need strength or health. By the time we get to praying for ourselves, the petitions we have raised for other people in our lives and in the world help us to word our own requests to the Lord more clearly.

Karina’s post has the full explanation — short and easy to understand. Please read it. This prayer is a keeper.
