having a quiet day

I am just trying to take it easy today. I had a hard night last night and didnt get much sleep. The only thing I am doing today is calling some pplaces for government help on paying my mortgage. Wish me luck!! Here is something that was sent to me that I thought I would share. Stay safe everyone!!

Five fingered 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 nationand 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 the Bible says, '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.
