tibetan buddhist prayers online http://monlam.org/

it is a recognized Tibetan Buddhist organization with three Tibetan Buddhist temples associated.
Lots of Tibetan Buddhist prayers one can easily order online and pay via PAYPAL.
Prices are lower than those other legitimate Tibetan temples may request.

pay for prayers

It might depend on where you are - if you are near a monastery or nunnery then you could just ask them. Otherwise, try here:

Tsoknyi Rinpoche is a very nice Lama, and takes care of many nuns, including some amazing retreat nunneries where they do long meditation retreats (years). So the prayers should be coming from pure and dedicated hearts, and the money will go to a wonderful cause of helping the nuns in retreat.

IBC's parent company

This is a Buddhist temply in Malaysia, whose welfare association owns IBC charter, apparently.
They are non-sectarian, but within the CHINESE Buddhist tradition.
You might make a donation, and ask them to hold prayers for people of your choice regarding their health.
I found them to be responsive when I contacted them.
There are myriads of Buddhist groups around: just choose wisely because lots of crooks prey upon people in search of spirituality.

Karaniya Metta Sutta

The Karaniya Metta Sutta is from the Pali Canon, but I understand that it is also popular in the Mahayana tradition.

the Buddha states here in part, "Just as a mother would protect her only child with her life even so let one cultivate a boundless love towards all beings. Let him radiate boundless love towards the entire world — above, below, and across — unhindered, without ill will, without enmity."

This is a short and easy to understand sutta and, at least in Thai tradition, it is chanted daily in a shortened, modified form as well as in the full form on special occasions.
The Dhammayut chanting guide is available for download here.

Here is the ending to the evening chant in Pali and English:

[Sabbe satta sada hontu]
Avera sukha-jıvino.
Katam puñña-phalam mayham
Sabbe bhagı bhavantu te.

May all beings live happily,
always free from animosity.
May all share in the blessings
springing from the good I have done.

While I cannot attest to the benefit to others of following this practice of chanting the above daily, I can personally attest to the benefit to the one chanting in that it can increase one's mindfulness of acting with metta and striving to cultivate metta throughout the day.


Chanting Sutta

You are great!
