Five-finger prayer, version II

Have had lots of feedback on the "Five Finger Prayer" posted on October 16. This version was sent along to me by Sally Edwards and I'm happy to share it with you. Thanks again, Sally for passing it on! (p.s. When sending in a contribution it would be swell if you could mention the village and/or congregation you attend. Helps us know where all our mini Farmers are spread out over the globe!!!)

"Another version of five-finger prayer:

Thumb - Praise of God, comes first as in the Invitatory section of Morning Prayer and the opening lines of Eucharist.

Index finger - Thanksgiving. This is, after all, our "pointer finger".

Middle finger - Confession. This finger sticks out the farthest, a reminder that we need to look for the logs in our own eyes.

Ring finger - Intercessions bind us to others just as rings can.

Pinkie finger - Petitions. The shortest finger for the shortest list."

Sally Edwards
