A Handful of Prayers

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. -Philippians 4:6 NLT

Prayer leads to three things – future blessings and favor, confidence that nothing will shake you, and deliverance from strongholds.

Here’s a “handful” of prayers you can pray.

  • Your thumb is nearest to you. Begin by praying for those closest to you – your family and friends. They are the ones you hold closest to your heart.
  • The next finger is your index/pointer finger. Pray for preachers, ministers and teachers. They are in positions to mold, shape and influence people’s lives.
  • The middle finger, which is the tallest finger, should remind you to pray for our leaders, government and administrators.
  • Fourth is the ring finger, which is the weakest finger. This represents those who are weak, sick or poor. They require abundant prayer.
  • Last is the pinky finger, the smallest finger of all. Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. After you have prayed on behalf of others, you will have a more realistic view of your own prayer needs.
  • Finally is the palm of your hand, which represents the harvest of the world.

Prayer Focus

  • Thank God for never being too busy to listen to your prayers.
  • Thank God that you can rest assure that He is in control and is taking care of your handful of prayers.
