"More things are wrought by prayer
Than this word dreams of."

Alfred Lord Tennyson, Poet Laurette of the UK


"It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers,
But for powers equal to our tasks,
To go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts
As we travel toward our distant goal."

Hellen Keller, American Author and Educator


Our Philosophy on Prayer

We know that it is the belief and not the prayer that permits the miracle. The belief permits the miracle because of an Intelligence operating as The Infinite Mind, Law and Heart of God, which reacts to that belief.


Guidance Church is affiliated with United Centers for Spiritual Living; The Global Heart (formerly The United Church of Religious Science). We are a Trans-Denominational Ministry. We invite you to learn more about our beliefs and community.
