Prayer = new job+new friends+mo**y

Gary Valenciano - Could you be Messiah?

After all the wait,hefty hassles and exams finally I got what I want.

"Thank you so much Lord and I return to
you whatever I have at the moment."

I just started working last Monday, may be because of the new environment and different colleagues I need to adjust again. Waking up early is really one of the things I hate, and for sure I share the same feeling to those oil-body. Its just one of slices that I need to overcome, since Im not doing this just for myself but to my roots also. As to what my over used line pretty sure I will get the hang of this. It may take a while though but its definitely a brighter on my side.

Early last week I received an email from one my friend priest Fr. John Orat. More often than not, when you receive something that is not ear or eye catching you will just let it go and the worst thing is even deleting it. The email was something not ear nor eye cathching, but what it has was something more than a good news. Its about every finger in our hand has its own pointing out....check it.

This is beautiful - and it is surely worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.

1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a "sweet duty."

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God's guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger; as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them.

5. And lastly comes our little finger ; the smallest finger of all which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, "The least shall be the greatest among you." Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.
with much thanks to Fr. John for the email
