5-step Prayer

I had my weekly Chapel Lesson yesterday in school. It was pretty interesting. We were taught the power of prayer and how to pray. So, before I forget how to pray, it would be best to list it down here first.

The speaker requested us to take out our hand with 5 fingers. Each finger represents what to pray for.

Finger 1: Praise and worship God.
E.g. Dear God, thank you that You are a good and mightly God. A God who is always there for us.

Finger 2: Ask for forgiveness.
E.g. God, today I fought with my little brother over my toys. Please forgive me. I know I should not have fought with him.

Finger 3: Thank God for what He has blessed me with.
E.g. Thank You for giving me a wonderful family. Thank You for giving me delicious food to eat.

Finger 4: Pray for someone else, especially for those who needs prayer.
E.g. I want to pray for my friend, xxxxx. He said that he was sad today because he saw his parents quarrelling. I pray that you help his parents to love each other and say good words to each other. I pray that my friend is able to go home today and hug his parents with love.

Finger 5: Pray for yourself.
E.g. God, I have a sore throat now. Please heal my sore throat so that I have more energy to do the things that I like to do.

In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

Good idea to use the fingers. I must start teaching my son that. So far, his prayer is only 2 sentences.

Yes, teacher told us that we cannot only pray for ourselves. It's always ME, ME and ME. I want this and I want that. So, that is why the last finger is to pray for ourself. The 1st 4 fingers are for other people.

Hey...I learnt this too last Sunday from someone from C-Hop.

They even asked us to create this album with pics of things to pray about.

Good journey....we hope to make it as well.
