Join Us in the 13th Annual Unity World Day of Prayer
Unity World Day of Prayer, Thursday, September 14
On Thursday, September 14, 2006, hundreds of thousands of people across the globe will join Silent Unity, an international and transdenominational prayer ministry, and Unity churches around the world in a sacred partnership of prayer-the 13th annual Unity World Day of Prayer. This sacred event is held on the second Thursday of September.
The Unity World Day of Prayer is an interfaith event-open to people of all faiths and all walks of life. Its purpose is to unite as many people as possible in prayer for one another. Unity believes World Day of Prayer is an opportunity to transform the world through prayer. You can learn more about World Day of Prayer, submit prayer lists, and listen to a special affirmation at www.worlddayofprayer.org. This year the special prayer that is being used to help focus people's minds and hearts is: "United heart to heart in prayer, we create a world of radiant life, overflowing abundance, and lasting peace as we awaken to the power of God within."
Many of the approximately 900 Unity churches and study groups around the world which will host World Day of Prayer interfaith events include an evening service at Unity Church on the Mountain on Thursday September 14, 2006 at 7 p.m. The church is located at 1328 Governors Drive, approximately ¼ mile up the mountain.
"In Unity, we know that prayer works. We host World Day of Prayer as an opportunity for humankind to experience a transformation of health, abundance, and love on a global level," said Rev. Landry. "Our hope is that people will decide to make this sacred connection with God and the world by joining prayer partners around the world-united in positive attitude, understanding, and love.
This spiritual event was first held in 1994. It is organized by Unity, which is based at Unity Village, Missouri, near Kansas City. Hundreds of thousands of people have participated as prayer partners. Millions more were the focus of prayer during special World Day of Prayer vigils. Every year, the names of more than one million people are prayerfully acknowledged during the vigil.
