Paramahansa Yogananda often expressed a wish that the healing work of the Prayer Council be augmented by the prayers of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India members and friends in every land, creating a spiritual union of sympathetic hearts — a worldwide 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.
We hope you will help to strengthen this healing tide with the soul force of your prayers. Weekly prayer services are held at Yogoda Satsanga Society of India Ashrams, centres, and meditation groups. If you are unable to attend these services, or if you are a follower of another spiritual teaching, you may wish to have a private service each week in your own home. As mentioned earlier, the basic principles of prayer and healing described here are applicable by anyone, regardless of religious affiliation.
