Prayer Requests

"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

Paramahansa Yogananda rendered a great service to humanity through his prayers for world peace and for 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 simple but highly effective technique. As time went on, Paramahansaji asked all of the monks and nuns of Self-Realization Order to join him in this endeavor to serve the world through prayer. Thus was born the SRF Prayer Council.

Led by Paramahansaji's successors, 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 Paramahansaji. Monks and nuns of the SRF Prayer Council pray daily for all 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 of our Worldwide Prayer Circle.

All prayer requests are confidential and will remain with the Prayer Council for a period of three months.

If you would like us to pray for yourself or someone else, you can submit online at SRF Prayer Request.
