Request Prayers

request-prayers-1“A prayer that is strong and deep will definitely receive God’s answer… By the application of science in religion, your uncertain belief in spiritual possibilities can become realization of their highest fulfillment.”― Paramahansa Yogananda

If you would like to request prayers for yourself or others, you can submit the names online at the SRF Request Prayers page. Monks and nuns of the SRF Prayer Council pray daily for those who request prayers for physical, mental, and spiritual healing and for world peace. They are joined by SRF members and friends around the globe who are part the SRF Worldwide Prayer Circle.

Worldwide Prayer Circle

Paramahansa Yogananda rendered a great service to humanity through his prayers for world peace and for the healing of others’ physical, mental, and spiritual afflictions. Each morning in deep meditation he invoked God’s blessings on all who had requested help, and sent them healing energy through performance of a simple but highly effective technique. As time went on, Paramahansaji asked all of the monks and nuns of the Self-Realization Order to join him in this endeavor to serve the world through prayer. Thus was born the Self-realization Fellowship Worldwide Prayer Council.

The work of this Prayer Council has continued uninterruptedly through the years. The Council deeply meditates and prays for others each morning and evening, and performs the healing technique practiced and taught by Paramahansa Yogananda. Countless letters addressed to Self-Realization Fellowship from those who have sought and received help attest to the unlimited power of God that is being effectively directed to others by the Prayer Council for healing of body, mind, and spirit.

Paramahansa Yogananda often expressed a wish that the healing work of the Prayer Council be augmented by the prayers of Self-Realization Fellowship members and friends in every land, creating a spiritual union of sympathetic heartsa world wide circle of prayer. Since the establishment of the Worldwide Prayer Circle, the prayers offered by participants all over the world have helped to create a growing tide of divine power, encircling the globe with harmony, goodwill, and peace. Today, weekly prayer services are held at SRF temples, centers, and meditation Groups such as in Dallas-Ft. Worth. We hope that you will help to strengthen this healing tide with the soul-force of your own prayers.
