Thank you for your interest in sending healing energy to the planet. Our Thursday prayer session is growing. I will keep it to 30 minutes or less, out of respect for everyone’s time.

Immediately following the Prayers for the Planet, I will offer prayers for individuals at this link (no need to pre-register):  

I am deeply grateful for any and all recent prayers offered regarding the huge California Fires. Since that time the two fires, Dixie and Caldor, are now about 75% contained. This is great progress. We even have had many days of clean air, and on September 10 it rained! Thank you, Divine Mother. The rain helped in the firefighting efforts. (The smoke has returned due to changes in the wind. Continued prayers are appreciated.) 

Do we know if it was indeed the prayers that helped to create the change? We don’t — though gratitude for beneficial change is always appropriate; everything comes from God’s grace. I also give thanks to God and Guru whenever a small fire in our vicinity is extinguished before it can get out of hand. I see this as a great blessing when everything is so dry. Every time that happens (and it seems to be fairly frequently), I go to a large statue of Parmahansa Yogananda to pronam, take the dust of his feet, and say, “Thank you.” 

May God and Guru bless and guide you always.

NEW! Update —

Our core group mentioned they would like to do pray together for the planet every day. So we are launching a new opportunity… please feel free to join Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday evenings at 8 pm California time. This is an experiment – we’ll see how this time slot works for everyone:

You are invited to a series of Zoom healing prayer sessions:

Register in advance for this meeting: (You only need to register the first time!)

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.


Please also feel free to join in these additional healing prayer zoom events. (These do not require registration). We are now offering prayers seven days a week. There is a time slot that should work for everyone who wishes to participate.

Tuesday Prayers on Zoom – at 5 PM Pacific Time

We start with healing prayers for various world concerns, followed by individual prayer requests for family, friends, and others.

Wednesday Noon Prayers

Noon to 1 PM PDT – (California time) Prayers for the planet and for individuals.  While this interactive opportunity is geared to the members of the Healing Prayer Circle, all are welcome. The healing satsang lasts one hour, followed by an informal Q&A afterward, as needed.

PS In closing, I offer another insightful talk from Swami Kriyananda:


  1. Thank you for sharing the people and the earth need our prayers.


      You are most welcome. I hope you can join some of our prayer sessions.

  2. I’d like to let everyone know how valuable prayers have been in my situation. Things which could have been very stressful, like financing and buying a car because mine completely broke down ended up being pleasant. The people I worked with on it acted almost like friends and did their best to help me. Friends were very supportive and check on me to make sure I’m doing well. When I was on an important phone call with a divorce lawyer, I could feel God telling me this was the wrong person to choose. My sister sent me a wonderful prayer written by St. Francis de Sales which has reminded me of how God is a loving and caring father. I just feel like I’m enveloped in his support.


      Thank you, Beth, for sharing your testimony about prayer and how it has you to feel close to God in a stressful time of your life.
