A Simple Way To Pray Every Day

Each finger represents a group of people.


Pray for those nearest you – your family and loved ones – that God will guide and direct them.


Pray for those who point you to God – spiritual mentors, prayer partners, pastors.


Pray for leaders in the church and world including government and business leaders that they will receive God’s guidance and make wise decisions.


This is the weakest finger. Pray for those who are weak and in need – the marginalized, those in trouble and in pain.


This smallest finger represents you. After you have prayed for all the others, pray for yourself and your needs. This helps you keep your needs in perspective.

A Renewal of the Believer's Covenant with God

Lord Jesus Christ,

Let me be your servant,

under your command.

I am no longer my own,

but yours.

Put me to what you will,

rank me with whom you will;

put me to doing,

put me to suffering.

Let me be employed for you

or laid aside for you,

enabled for you

or brought low for you.

Let me be full, let me be empty. Let me have all things,

let me have nothing.

I freely and heartily yield

all things to your pleasure

and disposal.
