Our prayers take the form of the Service and the Sazuke.
Service is the singing of the Mikagura-uta songs, accompanied by the
nine musical instruments and the hand dance, as taught to us by Oyasama.
The Kagura Service is the central prayer service in our faith, and it is
performed only at the Jiba. The monthly service partakes in the Kagura
Service, and is performed once a month at churches and fellowship all
over the world. Morning and evening services are also performed daily,
to thank God the Parent for the blessings that we receive and to ask for
guidance on the many challenges that we face on a daily basis. We also
perform special prayer service as occasion merits, to pray for specific
issues in our lives.
Sazuke, on the other hand, is a prayer for healing. Sazuke is
administered by a Yoboku, a person who received the Truth of the Grant
of Sazuke at the Jiba. A Yoboku administers the Sazuke directly upon the
individual who is in need of healing.
