Praying with My Fingers: An Easy Way to Talk with God
With gentle rhyme, children ages 1-5 will delight in learning how to pray by simply looking at their fingers.
Counting with my fingers,
I learn how to pray.
Looking at each finger,
I know what to say.
My thumb is the closest,
So I pray for those closest to me,
Like Mom and Dad,
My whole family tree!...
This creative form of prayer has been around for a long time, and is often credited, especially today,
to Pope Francis when he was the Archbishop of Argentina. Regardless of its origins, it’s a powerful
way to teach our children to pray that the Holy Father has often utilized in his ministry.

Author: Fr. Timothy Gallagher
In the first few centuries of Christianity, thousands of believers left the cities for the desert, in order to seek a purer spirituality than they could find among the distractions of ordinary life. Their teachings began our rich heritage of Christian mysticism, and continue to inspire people today who desire to be transformed in the counter-cultural image of Christ.
This collection of short sayings from the desert fathers and mothers provides a powerful word of wisdom for every day of the year. Together, they show us how the desert, or any place of inner solitude, is fertile ground for a relationship with God to grow and flourish.
Bernard Bangley, a retired pastor, is the editor of many Christian classics, including The Imitation of Christ; Talks on the Song of Songs by Bernard of Clairvaux; Nearer to the Heart of God: Daily Readings with the Christian Mystics and The Cloud of Unknowing.
