Prardhana Yogam (The Malankara Orthodox Church Prayer Group Association)
Kerala State / India
Prarthana Yogam, the Prayer wing of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, was started on 21 September 1993. The objective of this group is to ascertain the inculcation of firm faith, love of the church and brotherhood and bring about the spiritual, material and educational upliftment of the people. A unit consists of 20-30 heads of families and grown-up men. However, the women and children of these families can participate in these meetings. Once in a week (preferably Sunday) the prayer meetings are conducted at a convenient time in different houses or in a common place of convenience. Each unit has the vicar of the parish as the president and should have a secretary who should maintain the credit and debit account as well as the report. Once in three months, a common meeting as per the directions of the Vicar is to be convened with a general Secretary to oversee the conduct of the meeting.
