5 Finger Prayer for Others

Updated: Apr 24

Thumb - Every person is precious and valuable in God's sight. Present this person by name to Jesus Christ as His purchased possession. (Jn.3:16; Rm. 5:8)

Frist Finger - Bind the powers of darkness that claim a hold on the person's life. Pray that the person will have the freedom to accept or reject Jesus Christ apart from Satan's interference or bondage (2 Cor.10:3-5)

Middle Finger - Ask the Holy Spirit to draw this person towards Christ, convict the person of their sin and reveal to them the truth of God's plan for salvation. (Jn. 16: 8-9)

Ring Finger - Pray for the person to be drawn by the love of Good. Ask that God will orchestrate circumstances, people and events into the person's life in order to reveal to them their need for Christ. (Jn. 4:7-26)

Small Finger - Ask the Lord to use you as an instrument to bring them to Christ. Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide your every word and deed so that you will say and do the right thing at the right time. Pray that the light and joy of Christ will shine through your life as a testimony of Christian faith. (Mat 5:13-16; Acts 1:8)
