How Do I Request Prayer?


There are many ways to request and receive prayer at the Center:

* Request a prayer online using the "Prayer Request Form" below and our practitioner prayer team will pray for you.

* After our on-line Sunday Service, stay for fellowship where you can request a private, short, prayer session with one of our practitioners. This is a free service to the community.

* Meet with a Professional Prayer Practitioner for a private session (done via Zoom during the pandemic). These sessions usually have a fee associated with them, generally between $50-100 per session, with a sliding fee scale most often available.


“If when one prays his prayer is a recognition of Spirit’s Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence, and a realization of man’s unity with Spirit, then his prayer is a spiritual treatment.”

                       Ernest Holmes, founder of Science of Mind

Prayer Practitioners

A Practitioner is licensed to use affirmative prayer to support you in connecting to the Power, Presence, and Good of God within you. Their professional licensing is issued by our denomination and requires a minimum of three years of class work and practice, passing a written exam, and paneling before licensed ministers and Practitioners; they are required to renew their license every two years and meet additional education and licensing requirements.

Practitioners use spiritual principles to change lives for the better, while knowing that Divine Love is present and always working in our lives. The Professional Prayer Practitioner serves to help you change your life through the power of Spiritual Mind Treatment (also known as affirmative prayer).

A Practitioner may be called upon in times of stress, or you may prefer to meet with a Practitioner regularly to continue to grow in spiritual understanding. The relationship between you and your Practitioner is one of complete confidentiality. The names and telephone numbers of our Professional Prayer Practitioners are listed here: Practitioner Directory. A list of Prayer Practitioners is also available in a tri-fold flyer from the Concierge Desk at the Center. Connect with a practitioner for confidential spiritual guidance and powerful prayer support!


“The answer to prayer is in the prayer when it is prayed – the belief of the one praying sets in motion the Law of Love, which is the fundamental Law of the Universe”

                                       Ernest Holmes
