You may request prayers on behalf of yourself or others, such as family members, friends or loved ones, including pets and animals, living or deceased. In times of difficulty, transition, or celebration, prayer requests are thought to promote positive conditions for success in our endeavors—spiritual and worldly—and for the pacification of negativity and obstacles.
The nuns do not require a donation for prayers nor is any set amount necessary but if you feel inspired to make an offering, suggested amounts are provided. Marpa Foundation sends your donation for prayer requests to the designated nunnery in its entirety.
