THE POWER OF AFFIRMATIVE PRAYER

Guidance, support and love,

Available to all.

We believe in the power of affirmative prayer or spiritual mind treatment. You are a magnificent child of the most High – allow a practitioner to remind you of your Truth!
Practitioners are available for complimentary prayer after Sunday Services to pray with you, and our prayer ministry is always available for times of great personal need.




WHAT IS A PRACTITIONER?


A practitioner is a servant of highly expanded spiritual consciousness and deep understanding, trained in the study of Science of Mind and in the art, science and skill of Spiritual Mind Treatment/Affirmative prayer. They are licensed to practice professionally and are bound by a high code of ethics to respect your privacy. A practitioner is dedicated to the cause of helping others and is trained to assess individuals in improving their life experiences and conditions. The practitioner gives Mental/ Spiritual guidance in supporting others in identifying the mental causes of issues.

A practitioner listens, questions, teaches truth principles, guides the process and does a healing treatment/affirmative prayer. Spiritual guidance at the spiritual level of awareness, focuses on making inner changes in order to manifest the desired outer results. All spiritual change is from the inside out.

Talk to a practitioner if you are in need of inspiration, in

need of healing in health issues, finances, relationships, career, or the celebration of a major event in your life. It is an honor and privilege for a practitioner to support you in any of these areas. You are a magnificent child of the most High – allow a practitioner to remind you of your Truth!

Practitioners are available for complimentary prayer after Sunday Services to pray with you. They are also available for private, individual spiritual guidance on a fee basis at other times. Feel free to call a practitioner and ask for their fee schedule and location. The fee is established at the time an appointment is made. The fee is not for prayer, but rather for the practitioner’s time, training, skill, and professional knowledge of spiritual principles and practices that can enhance one’s life.

The relationship between the practitioner and the client is one of utmost confidence, integrity, and trust. It is essential to the practitioner-client relationship that all information shared is kept in the strictest confidence.

On page 315 of the Science of Mind textbook, Dr. Holmes writes:  “Energy unconnected does nothing, it is only when it is used properly directed, that it accomplishes things.”   We always have three choices:  run away from our problems, stay and fight the problem, or properly direct the energy to transcend the problem.   Spiritual Mind Treatment is the form of affirmative prayer I learned when I came out of desperation to this teaching in 1986.

I stayed because of how connected I felt to the message of Dr. Holmes, as it was presented by Dr. Kennedy Shultz.  Volunteering and taking every class available became my favorite things to do.  Becoming a Practitioner was a goal I achieved in 1996, which is when I felt called to ministry.  After serving as Senior Minister in two pulpits, I retired from ministry in 2013, however, I will always remain an active Practitioner.

From the moment the words of Ernest Holmes’ classic, The Science of Mind, clicked within me and helped illuminate a path to the Divine Presence within—I knew that becoming a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner was the path for me.

As Holmes writes in The Science of Mind, “To suppose that the Creative Intelligence of the Universe would create man in bondage and leave him bound would be to dishonor the Creative Power which we call God” (25).  No one is immune or exempt from the opportunities that life uniquely disguises as “problems” or “challenges.” Holmes affirms what we deeply know—that this Creative Intelligence which created us also equipped us with the tools to not only get out of bondage but to flourish, prosper and succeed. This teaching has provided me with practical ways to address the myriad of opportunities to prove the principle, and how it constantly works

As a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner, I see my role as a midwife of spiritual consciousness—to assist in uncovering a limiting idea or notion and bringing forth a new thought or new awareness that leads to transformation.

Let’s do it together!

What a privilege to make that possible for someone. The gift given becomes a gift to the giver as well as the recipient. Is there a better endeavor?
