Welcome to the home of our modern,
quasi-contemplative order dedicated to helping people of all faiths establish closer communion with
the Divine. Quasi-contemplative means we communicate with the Divine
throughout our day in a quiet, peaceful and relaxed attitude. We sit in
quiet meditation when we have the time and we find a minute ot two here and
there to contemplate or commune with the Divine.
We dedicate this Order and the work of this
Order to the three Marys at the cross when the Master Jesus was crucified.
Many of us believe those three Marys were Mary the mother of Jesus, Mary the older
sister of Jesus and Mary Magdalene who history teaches us was probably his bride
and the Holy Grail. (What few men know is all mothers are the Holy Grail.)
Our Mission is to help people attain personal
communion with the Divine for the purpose of helping all people, animals, plants
and our planet heal from all physical, psychological, emotional, mental and
spiritual pain and suffering.
Modern Order means we are not cloistered and we do not spend all of our waking hours
in contemplation. We communicate with the Divine -- this is called
communion -- throughout our day in a quiet, peaceful and relaxed attitude.
We sit in quiet meditation when we have the time and we find a minute or two
here and there to speak (commune) with the Divine..
Membership is available to members of the
Church who also subscribe to our Rule of Communion.
Members receive monthly lessons to help them follow their chosen spiritual
path and develop communion with the Divine.
for Prospective Members
The Rule of Communion is an expression of our
dedication to the Divine and a statement of our intention to set aside a period
of time each day for communion with the Divine. This time may be spent in
reading spiritual literature, prayer, study, contemplation, meditation or
serving the Divine in the manner chosen by the member.
Membership Options are either Sustaining Member
or Working Member:
SUSTAINING MEMBERS. Sustaining members donate $25.00 US or
more to the Order each year to help pay the expenses of the Order.
These expenses include this website, the Intentional Prayer website,
network and project and electrical expenses to keep our computers running
24/7 with the prayer wheel and quantum healing energy.
WORKING MEMBERS. Working members donate time to
pray for a group of six people in the Intentional Prayer Network. They
do this as a service to others in addition to their own network. They
will be praying for a total of eleven people daily, five in their own
network and six in the network assigned to them. Eleven is a holy
number that brings a blessing to the person praying for others.

Contemplation is intensely focusing on a
spiritual object or concept for a period of time. Generally, fifteen to
twenty minute periods of contemplation are more beneficial for most people than
long, extended periods of contemplation. As with any generality, some
individuals may find a different approach works better for them.
Meditation is a form of contemplation where the
individual becomes receptive to the Divine. The Order believes the most
effective form of meditation is that taught by the Modern Essenes as
the Essene Healing
Serving the Divine is any form of service done
with love to benefit humanity, animals, plants or the planet. While the
exact method of service is up to the member, the intention of that service must
be more for the benefit of other humans or animals, plants and "Mother Earth."
