Joy in praying for others, and the power of prayer

Dearest Mary,
I will be at Ananda soon… I am filled with joy at having the opportunity to be there for a while.  I am bringing my prayer list with me.
I just thought I would tell you that since I have been praying for these souls in need  I have experienced a couple of things. 1. My healing prayers have deepened with strength and I can more clearly feel the Divine Healing Power coming into me and through me as I pray for each individual..Such a Blessing. 2. When I find that my mind is rebellious about it, I just ignore it and start the prayer session. 3.  It has become a way for me to get out of my little self and expand to the needs of the Greater Self.
Thank you Mary for all the effort and time that you put into this wonderful vehicle for God and our Gurus, for Service.
Aum, Aum, Aum!!!
In our Guru,

Nice work Mary!!! Love the new newsletter…Here is an update on my Step-Mother in Florida, Connie Nardo- Colin Cancer- She is clear! She’ll have a check-up in 5 years but they can’t find a trace of any cancer. Thanks for all your support…. (from Jivani G.)

Below are some testimonials that I sent out in the March 2009 Newsletter:

Dear Mary, I wanted to update you on the condition of a woman I asked the Ananda Healing Prayer Ministry to pray for a couple of years ago. At that time, she and her husband had recently adopted siblings whose mother was a crack cocaine addict. Soon after adopting the second baby, she was diagnosed with colon cancer – this was almost 3 years ago and was given, in her own words “a death sentence”. But it has been 3 years and she is still with us. I am convinced our prayers to Divine Mother and Master have given her this additional time to take care of these children. Blessings to you in the New Year! Barbara K.

Thanks Mary, for sending her name to your prayer list. I heard from her soon after I sent you the request. By then she was able to walk with support. This was after the third day of surgery. Its miraculous… Thanks, dear. Keep her in the light… Love, Lipa

Hi Mary, I’m just letting you know I am “on it”! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to serve in this way. You (and this work) are truly inspiring to me. Blessings and love, Susan

Dear Mary, Thank you so much for your good will and advice this afternoon (January 5) regarding my dilemmas in search of Satguru. I look forward to communing with Yogananda and drilling deep, as you suggest. I am most grateful. The timing was amazing, especially that today is his birthday. And thank you so much for putting these other beings in your prayer service as well. I look forward to using photos to find blessings from Master. May all good things come your way and to those you serve and to the community…
Love, R. R.

Beautiful Testimonial, from a member of our Prayer Council in Assisi, Italy

To all – from Eefje:

I want to thank all of you for your prayers for my cousin, Ellen….About 3 weeks a go, she came to visit me in our community in Assisi together with her sister, grandmother, another cousin and my mother. It was kind of a coming together before Ellen goes to America (where she has been accepted in this very famous cancer clinic in Texas!). I felt from the beginning that coming to Assisi would be more important than any other treatments she would get in the future. One day, while walking through the streets of Assisi, I felt a strong intuitive call to give her my astrological bangle. When she put it on her arm she said “I feel as if I’ve been wearing this forever!”

The next morning we all went to yoga and meditation together. During meditation, I looked at Ellen and she was sitting there, relaxed in complete silence, her face was expressing acceptance, serenity and strong faith!

Back home to Belgium, she had to go for another check up and 2 weeks later for another chemo treatment and check up again. The chemo treatment wasn’t meant to cure anything but to try to keep the tumor under control as it was a very aggressive, fast growing tumor and before she can go to the USA, they had to keep the tumor under control in Belgium. So two weeks after she went back to Belgium, I got a phone call from Ellen; “Eef, that bracelet you gave me…I think it’s working! I went to a check up today and the doctors were stupefied… the tumor in my brain is gone! It’s gone!! And the cancer cells in my blood went from 65 to 40%!!!”

I told her that so many people also have been praying for her to which she said, “Thank you, I think it’s a combination of that bracelet and the prayers!”

Thank you for all your prayers!!!

Love, Eefje

“Dear Mary,
Thank You for your Healing Prayers for David on Thursday night at the centre in York, Me. I want to share with you that we have seen healing taking place in minute ways since then. We are very grateful…

Thank you Mary, I keep all your letters and read them again many times. Your CD of the 23rd Psalm is helping me get thru a very painful time of deterioration of the upper spine which causes severe pain in my neck and the right side of the medulla. When I can’t sleep at night I play it over and over. Thank you again for all you do. Many blessings, Yvonne

Dear Ones,
Ken Loughman was given 2 months to live in Nov & Dec 2008.  Your prayers were answered and he has gone back to work.  Thanks to all  Blessing to All

    Note from a friend – (prayers for her brother who had a broken back)

    Dear Mary,
    I’m filled with Gratitude this morning. My brother is doing exceptionally well. Thank you again so much for your help.

    I moved my meditation space to in front of a window. I moved my Mary, the twin of yours, to be right in my view.
    It’s interesting to meditate early morning when it’s dark and watch the Light until I can see her. Of course she has been there all along.

    Blessings to you and your family.

    I am cancer-free at this time. I have felt surrounded in Light throughout this challenge–Light and deep gratitude.
    In Divine Love,

    From Colleen C:
    I just wanted to let you know that Angelina has been completely healed. The doctors recently did tests and said she no longer fits the diagnosis for Metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD). Truly amazing. Thank you.

    Testimonial from A woman who’ husband survived a serious heart attack:

    Mike is deeply grateful for the way it has turned out and for all the support and especially the prayers. He knows, as do I, that they have helped tremendously. The Dr. said that when he saw the blockage, he expected to have a much harder time cleaning it out than he did–surely Divine grace as a result of all the prayers.

    And this is from today – he is home! This is a note Suzanne sent to friends and family:

    Hi Everyone,

    He’s home! We just got home a little while ago and Mike is happy to be out of the hospital and back to the land of the living. He’s doing well–his blood counts were a little down today so they are a bit concerned about bleeding. He’s on two blood thinners, so it might be dicey for awhile getting a balance with everything. Please keep the prayers coming for a complete recovery.

    We also learned today that he has no damage to the heart. We are so grateful–what a miracle, considering he had a complete occlusion of the LAD artery, often referred to as “the widow maker,” the one where they say you have 5 min. to get help or you’re dead. So he has truly dodged another bullet. We have no doubt that prayers have made the difference…
