Prayer at the Center
“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, our founder
Professional 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!
What is Affirmative Prayer?
Affirmative Prayer is simply prayer that recognizes that the source of all Life is the invisible, Spirit or God. Spirit is unlimited, whole, complete, and perfect in design. Since we are one with the One, we can speak for (affirm) and accept that spiritual Truth in our lives. Affirmative prayer focuses on and declares the positive outcome desired.
What we believe – we believe that Life is good, that there is only one God common to all, in and through all things, and that Love is the only Power. We are only here for God.
How Do I Request Prayer?
There are many ways to request and receive prayer at the Center:
* Meet with a Practitioner on Sunday at Center for a short prayer – a powerful “one-minute miracle!” As a service to the community, Practitioners are available to pray with you in the Chapel area each Sunday after the morning services.

* Meet with a Professional Prayer Practitioner for a live, private session. These sessions usually a fee associated with them, generally set between $50-100 per session, with a sliding fee scale most often available. Some Practitioners offer phone, Skype or 30-minute sessions as well.
