Individuals, families and organizations are encouraged to bring written prayer requests for support in overcoming the individual and collective challenges we face in building our communities and uplifting our spirits.

The African Traditional Spiritual Coalition is a joint effort of nonprofit religious organizations to conduct programs to facilitate healing for the community using traditional African healing rituals from a variety of traditions. The first program conducted by the Coalition was a Healing Circle in 2000 under the leadership of Iyanifa Efuntola Taylor, Chief Priestess of the Yoruba Temple of Spiritual Elevation and Enlightenment. In addition to the healing circles the Coalition has presented traditional rituals at the Prayer Vigil for the Earth and the Smithsonian Institution’s Folklife Festivals, hosted a reception for Asantehene Nana Osei Tutu II, king of the Asante people of Ghana, West Africa and co-sponsored a presentation on Ancient Traditions in Modern Times by Chief Ifatope Akinwande, Araba of Abataland, Nigeria.
