Our Prayer Practitioners

Speak with one of our Prayer Practitioners if you are in need of inspiration, celebration of a major event in your life and/or healing in any area: financial, relational, health or career. You are God’s wondrous gift. Let our Prayer Practitioners remind you of that!

Center for Spiritual Living-Palm Desert Prayer Practitioners support our spiritual community in a variety of ways:

  • Prayer support before and after Sunday Services
  • Responding to your written, email and phone prayer requests

All of the above services are provided as a gift to our spiritual community.

Prayer Practitioners are also available for individual spiritual support sessions on a fee basis. A session with a Prayer Practitioner provides a safe, nurturing environment for you to explore your spiritual practices and current beliefs that you would like to change. You are provided with the opportunity to co-create a “new” thought in your life that allows you to change your thinking and change your life!

No one is ever denied treatment for inability to pay.

We are here for you!
We believe “with God, all things are possible.”
