The Crystal Silence League - Free Interfaith Prayer Site

I've recently joined the Crystal Silence League (CSL for short) sponsored by the Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, aka The World's Smallest Church.  The CSL is based on the teachings of C. Alexander, a sort of positive thinking guru from the early 20th century.  He was the original founder of the CSL but when he died the League pretty much stopped operating.

The church is affiliated with Lucky Mojo Curio Company run by Catherine Yronwode and her husband Nagasiva.  From what I gather, it's been Yronwode's dedication along with members of the church and affiliated churches to restart the CSL.

The goal is to be a place where people can request prayers and pray for others through the League's website.  The main tool used to focus prayers and thoughts is a crystal or glass ball.  You don't have to be a member to enter a prayer request or pray for others.

If you do join though you can receive a reprint of a booklet by C. Alexander called The Crystal Silence League:  Personal Codes, Lessons, and Instructions for Members.  It is New Thought oriented, but he doesn't go overboard with it like some modern authors.  At least that is how I read it.  It doesn't matter what your belief system is, though many people who join may be hoodoo based which has a Christian base.  The author doesn't push Jesus though.  I think there is maybe one mention in the book of him and the 23rd Psalm (which is old testament actually).

There is a deal through Lucky Mojo that if you buy one of the crystal or glass balls listed on the CSL site, then you will receive the booklet for free and be enrolled as a CSL member.  Just let them know that's what you want to do when you order.  But again, membership isn't required.  You can go ahead and ask for prayers to be said on your behalf and hopefully pray for others as well.  Visit the Crystal Silence League's website to learn more.  Here is the link to Lucky Mojo.
