Hold onto your habits

How to adapt and develop our prayer life in this season. Rick Warren's hand-finger prayer model:

LEFT - WHO to pray for: thumb = loved ones, 1st = leaders, middle = influencers, 4th = the weak, little = myself

RIGHT - WHAT to pray for: thumb = my heart, 1st = my priorities, middle = my example/influence, 4th = my relationships, little = my resources
