The Unity approach to prayer is affirmative, based on universal truths.

Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive 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.

In the late 1880s, Unity’s co-founder Myrtle Fillmore’s life was transformed when she heard and believed the idea, “I am a child of God, and therefore I do not inherit sickness.” She had been very ill for many years, with something akin to tuberculosis. Speaking life-affirming words to the illness in her body, she went on to live a life of health and wholeness.

News of Myrtle’s prayer experience spread, and people near and far began sending their prayer requests to her. In 1890 Myrtle and her husband Charles began a prayer ministry. Daily they held in mind and heart the prayer requests of everyone who contacted them. That was more than 126 years ago – the beginning of Silent Unity.

Prayer is the foundation of Unity and our ministry, and we believe in the power of prayer to expand and transform our minds and cultivate our relationship with God. We believe prayer aligns us with God and allows us to be inwardly guided to all that is good. Unity Reflections of Truth provides prayer support and comfort through a number of forums. All prayer requests and support are considered sacred and are held in the strictest confidence.

Unity 5 Step Prayer Process – Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, said that prayer is communion with God. Use this Five-Step Prayer Process to deepen your communion with God, to heighten your awareness of the activity of God manifesting as you.

Begin your experience of the power of affirmative prayer by reading the “RELAX” tab, then CLICK ON CONCENTRATE, and so on.

Set aside time each day for prayer. Begin your quiet time by relaxing your body and opening your mind to an awareness of God. Breathe deeply, knowing that you are in the presence of God and the presence of God is within you. Let go of your concerns and know that all is well.

As you close your eyes and release any thought of the world around you, begin to think about God … about God’s presence in your life. Focus your mind on a single thought or idea or scripture that resonates with you. Repeat this idea over and over, either silently or aloud until it becomes your only thought.

Allow this focused state of mind to move you into a deeper awareness of God. “Be still … and know that I am God.” Be still as you connect with this divine presence within you.

From the depth of your being, know that you are one with God. This knowing, this realization as you experience God’s holy presence is “silent soul communion.” In this receptive state of mind and heart, listen for the inspiration of your own Higher Self, or Christ nature.

Let gratitude be your heart’s joyous response to this experience of communion with God and with God’s infinite goodness. Give thanks for blessings to come, ready to receive your good.
