Celebrate World Day of Prayer at Unity
Prayer is the bedrock, the solid foundation of Unity's philosophy. Prayer is the time and the place within that we converse with God, the Spirit who expresses through us, God who is our friend, our guide, our therapist, our counselor, our guru, our bliss.
Prayer has energy and power, and when the prayers of many unite and combine, they expand the intention beyond the individual. Uniting all in affirmative prayer is the purpose of World Day of Prayer.
Throughout the day, celebrated Thursday, Sept. 12, people worldwide will join prayer upon prayer, heart to heart, sharing like intentions, for Unity's 20th annual World Day of Prayer. The theme of this sacred event is: Living Well, Nurturing Mind, Body and Spirit.
Unity Worldwide Ministries will begin this sacred mission on Wednesday, Sept. 11, with an Opening Ceremony leading into 24 hours of prayers, activities and services including a candlelit walk to the Prayer Chapel, and culminating with the dedication of the long-awaited newly renovated Tower. The Tower has had many uses over the years, the latest addition is a state-of-the-art Healing Center.
Unity Worldwide Ministries along with Unity Institute will be celebrating these sacred services on the Campus at Unity Village in Missouri. Join us in this year's prayer affirmation: "My positive thoughts, words and actions create a healthy life – mind, body and spirit."
Throughout this sacred and tradition-filled day, on Thursday, Sept. 12, we at Unity Spiritual Center of Westlake will enfold ourselves in the very heart and nucleus of Unity's beliefs with prayer, meditation, sacred readings and soul-touching music all designed to uplift and heal your spirit and your soul. Come cultivate your intentions through personal prayer, enjoy the consciousness of deep meditation, listen to the integrity of sacred historic readings, receive an individual blessing and become integrated with your Divine-Self through the notes of harmonious music.
Our Prayer Service will be held at 7 p.m., in the Hall Sanctuary at Unity of Westlake. Mary Maynard, Director of Unity's Centered Wellness, will give a presentation on "Quantum Prayer-Numbers Count." Rev. Barbara Smith will give a meditation interspersed with music. Receive a personal blessing from Reverend Barbara and Mary. Be inspired anew as you listen and align with your Divine.
Honor and nourish yourself in this day filled with prayer, music and meditation, starting at 9 a.m., in USC's Community Room. Come for the whole day, or just a portion, either way your soul will be filled with a glorious knowing! All faiths always welcome. The answer is your prayer.
