The Hand of Prayer

How to Begin

STOP - Take a look at your LEFT hand.

THERE’S your THUMB - it’s the digit closest to your heart. Name it for the one in your heart you would most like to see saved.

THERE ARE YOUR OTHER FOUR FINGERS - place on them the names of others you would love to pray for and see saved.

THINK ABOUT IT!!! What if 50 of us prayed every day for 3 to 5 persons to be saved and then did something every week to cultivate them for Jesus?

REMEMBER - We are doing it for the Lord through the Power of HIS SPIRIT.


How to Cultivate

Do something nice for them each week.

Give them a telephone call.

Write them an encouraging note or letter, or drop in for a friendly visit.

Send them a helpful card or pamphlet.

Invite them for coffee and cake or a meal.

Take them with you to see some sights or a special interest.

Use your imagination - what would you enjoy having done for you and do it for them!

Timing is very important, develop a friendship, WIN A SOUL.



If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chr 7:14)

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Mat 7:7)

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (Mark 11:24)

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. (James 5:16)
