Trained and licensed Practitioners are available for prayer support every Sunday after the service; and for private appointments.
To schedule a private appointment, click here for a list of licensed practitioners. You may also drop your confidential prayer request into the prayer box located in the Sanctuary or in the bookstore. If you would like prayers from the community, post your request on the magnetic wall in the sanctuary.
(Practitioners are bound by a strict Code of Ethics which requires them to serve you on a confidential basis. The Practitioner, who does not advise, will listen to your description of the conditions you are experiencing and through inquiry will determine first cause. This cause is the belief at work that is creating your current effects. The Practitioner will then assist you in reversing the limiting thought, and through Spiritual Mind Treatment will set the changes in motion.)
