How do we teach our children to pray or to remember to pray for others? One way is a method often used by Pope Francis in his own personal prayer practice. Praying With Your Five Fingers A simple way to teach children to talk with God encourages children to use their fingers with each finger representing someone or something for which to pray. Praying With Five Fingers is a laminated prayer card that measures 8-1/2 by 11 inches designed to be used for children from pre-kindergarten to 2nd grade. The prayer card explains what each finger stands for and for whom to pray. For instance, the thumb is the finger closest to you so it should remind you to pray for those people in your life to whom you are closest. The fourth or ring finger is the weakest finger so this finger represents those who are ill or who have problems. This method is often credited to Pope Francis, especially now that he is Pope, which he is said to have used when he was Archbishop of Argentina although the practice may actually have been in existence for some time. Even so, this procedure is a powerful way to pray and to teach children to pray. The prayer card could be given to children in a First Communion program or used in any religious education class for younger children.
