Full Assurance In The Heart – Day 51

June 14, 2011

Prayer- the vehicle that connects the hand of God with the hands of man!

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

Colossians 4:2

People of great faith, are people of much prayer.  So often when we think of praying, one visualizes hands clasped together. Here is a little tool I discovered today, using your hand to help you maintain a good focus in your time of prayer. 

The thumb; it is the closest to you, so let your thumb remind you to pray for those closest to you.  Pray for your family, friends, those near to your heart.

The index finger; is used to point the way- Let it be a reminder to pray for those who minster and preach the Word to others.  Missionaries, teachers, lay leaders and the body of Christ, that they may release the grace, love and healing presence of God.

The middle finger; this finger stands the tallest as a reminder to pray for those in authority over our lives.  Pray for those in government positions, as well as business leaders and those who watch over our lives.

The ring finger; it is the weakest finger on our hand. Let it serve as a reminder to pray for those who are weak amongst us.  Pray for the poor, the needy, those in need of a touch in their bodies, their souls or spirit.

The last finger on your hand is the smallest of your fingers; this reminds you to pray for yourself.  It is good and it is God for you to pray for those things in your life.  Praying for them last is a good way not to allow your life to dominate your focus.  As you seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, God will provide all that you need.  Ask the Lord to release a fresh humility in your life that you might decrease, so He can increase in a mighty way.

You can have full assurance in your heart, knowing that God hears you when you pray!

… The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.

James 5:16
