It can be difficult to hold agro against DKs, warriors and ferals sometimes. Make sure you keep Inquisition up on AOE pulls, use Hammer of the Righteous and Avenger's Shield on cooldown and Consecration if you have plenty of mana. Also try to save 3 holy power when the mobs you are fighting are about to die, so you can have a 3 point inquisition for the next group.

Your spec is missing Judgements of the Just which is quite a lot of damage reduction. There is a post on specs here. I recommend this one for threat. Consider adding Glyph of Consecration and Glyph of Hammer of Justice. For 5 mans I would use Glyph of Holy Wrath, since the stun is quite useful.

You also want to run your character through http://www.askmrrobot.com which will tell you what to reforge/gem to make you more survivable. As you can see here, you are missing a lot of Enchants and reforges which will boost you're defensive stats considerably.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=31912 would be a good place to start. I'm guessing you're rotation is a bit off so that section could be useful.

For 5 mans I found it useful to gear for expertise and hit. 26 expertise and 8% hit help a lot with keeping mobs on you, but only do it if you can cope with the extra damage you'll take.

Usually, threat is only an issue for the first 10-20 seconds of a fight while Vengeance stacks up and after that you shouldn't have any problems. Start with Divine plea and Avenging wrath to get a boost at the start of the fight.

for 5 mans 24 exp and 6% hit cap you out tho you will see the greatest threat jump with just getting exp around 24 (caped for heroic 5 man bosses).
