"Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Mark 11:22-24 (NIV)
Mohawk District Prayer List
Please send any prayer requests to me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org . They will also be forwarded to the district office.

Prayer requests will stay on this list for 4 weeks. If you would like the request to continue, please resubmit the request, and it will be continued on the list.
(This is just to try and manage the list.)
Five Finger Prayer
Your thumb is nearest to 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. Pointing finger
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. Tallest finger
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. Ring finger
The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is 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. Little finger
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 pinky 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.
Remember to give thanks in all things and ask forgiveness. And pray to do God's will always!
