Handy Reminder

Text- (Psalm 5:3) In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. (New International Version)

Thought starters
We have been talking about prayer during the season of Lent. How do you remember what to pray for each time? It’s hard, what if you forget something important?

I remember a minister teaching children a way to remind them how to pray. I want to share it with you today.

Hold your hands together like this. We’ll start with the "pinky." It is the smallest of your fingers. It reminds us to pray for other children in the world.

The next finger is your weakest finger. It reminds us to pray for the weak, the homeless, the ones with out food, people who are sick, and ones who are struggling.

Your "middle" finger is for the people closest to you. To pray for your parents, your brothers and sisters, grand parents. For your friends and those who are close to you.

The next finger is your "pointer." finger. It reminds us to pray for the people in power in the world, The President, those who advise him. Congress, the Judges, the Governor, and the Mayor.

The next is your thumb. It reminds you to pray for you. (Pull your thumb so it touches your body)
