The Ministry of Prayer at CSL Santa Cruz is a professional service provided by our licensed practitioners. Through affirmative prayer, we facilitate healing by knowing and revealing a spiritual truth which is greater than any physical condition or situation. We align in the oneness of God and the oneness of life. We pray with power, live in love, demonstrate through faith and court the Presence of God through all life situations. We are here to pray for you, to know your TRUTH, accepting all experiences as an opportunity for growth and participation in the creative process of life. On Sundays our licensed prayer practitioners offer their service for free. Please contact them to discuss scheduling and fees if you require support other than on Sunday.

"The Practitioner's business is to uncover God in every person." 
Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind


"Prayer is essential, not to the salvation of the soul, for the soul is never lost; but to the conscious well-being of the soul that does not understand itself. There is a vitality in our communion with the infinite, which is productive of the highest good. As a fire warms the body, as food strengthens us, as sunshine raises our spirits, so there is a subtle transfusion of some invisible force in such communion, weaving itself into the very warp and woof of our own mentalities. This conscious co-mingling of our thought with Spirit is essential to the well-being of every part of us."



Rev. Tamara Merrill


Tamara is a staff minister who has been involved with Science of Mind for many years and has recently, February, 2019, become a new minister. She is available for ceremonies, memorials, weddings and is a talented officiant for your event.
