Prayer and Meditation
The Unity approach to prayer is affirmative, based on positive prayers and affirmations that have universal, interfaith appeal. Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts, as well as holding in mind statements of spiritual truth. Through meditation, we experience the presence of God. Prayer and meditation heighten our awareness and thereby transform our lives.
Prayer is the foundation of our spiritual life. Let us pray with you about the concerns of your life and the lives of your loved ones, as well the celebrations. As we wish to honor your privacy and confidentiality, we will not contact you unless you request that we do so.
We are blessed to have the constant support of Prayer Chaplains. They are available each Sunday to pray with us and hold the sacred space as we go through this journey called life. Members of our Spiritual Community receive a call each month from their Prayer Chaplain to pray with them about challenges, celebrations or whatever they desire. Prayer is a foundational aspect of our faith tradition and was demonstrated by Myrtle Fillmore (one of our co-founders) in how she healed her body and spirit.
Unity Prayer Chaplains are available for one-on-one prayer with our congregants after the Sunday morning service. Our Prayer Chaplains are volunteers who receive extensive training in affirmative prayer and holding a sacred space. All prayers are kept in strict confidence.
“Prayer is exhaling the spirit of man and inhaling the spirit of God.” ~ Edwin Keith
This is the essence of what it means to be a prayer chaplain. Through their training, prayer chaplains:
- Deepen their own spirituality and connection with God
- Experience personal and spiritual transformation
- Learn how to stand in prayerful support of our spiritual family
Prayer chaplains serve for 12 months. Information meetings are held each Fall. If you would like to request support from a prayer chaplain during the week, please call the church office at (636) 723-7000.
