Praying with My Finger Paraclete Press
Trace your child’s hand on a piece of paper and let them color to remember the people they are praying for, or copy pictures of what they want to pray for and let your child paste them on the page.
Pray the 5 finger prayer together with your child each night.
With each finger pray first and then have your child pray.
End the prayer with a “Thank you” to God for our hands.
