Five-Finger Prayer

There are dozens of versions of this prayer out there – it’s an easy way to involve children physically in prayer, and works with anyone from toddlers to pre-teens (and sometimes even teens).

This is the one I use. I like how each prayer connects in some way to that particular finger – it’s not just random. The Revd. Ally Barrett has added a final piece to this prayer – she draws a circle on her palm as she prays for the whole world. I think that’s a great addition.
