Simple but powerful

I have two simple things to share with you this week, and neither one is really from me. They honor the wise and innocent; you know who you are:

J – Jesus

O – Others

Y – Yourself

The 5 finger prayer

THUMB: Those closest to you, your family.

POINTER: Those that point you in the right direction (teachers, doctors, pastors) ask for wisdom and support.

MIDDLE: (The tallest one) Those that lead us (govern us) ask for guidance and wisdom for them.

RING: (weakest) Those who are weak, in trouble, sick or in pain. We cannot pray too much for them.

PINKIE: (smallest) Our prayers for ourselves and our needs.
