Prayer Request
 

Whatever your prayer need, we are here to support you in affirmative, confidential prayer.

 

What is Affirmative Prayer?

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 spirutal truth.

When most people think of prayer, they think of asking God for something.

Not so in Unity.

Unity uses "affirmative prayer."  Rather than begging or beseeching God, this method involves connecting with the spirit of God within and asserting positive beliefs about the desired outcome.  Affirmative prayer is the same method of prayer Jesus tought when he said,


"So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" - Mark 11:24.

 

How do I find prayer support?

Unity in the Foothills offers both prayer chaplains and a prayer chain to support you in prayer. All prayer requests are handled with complete confidentiality.  

Prayer Chaplains will pray directly with you, either by phone or via Zoom.  They will listen carefully to your situation and offer affirmative prayer, comfort, and encouragement.  To reach a prayer chaplain, please email peacecenter@unityinthefoothillsct.org for contact information.

Prayer Chain.  Our Prayer Chain includes members of our community who will provide confidential and dedicated affirmative prayer on your behalf.  To initiate a prayer request, please call Barbara at 203-232-2922.

Silent Unity.  Unity Worldwide Ministries offers a 24/7 Prayer Ministry.  The Silent Unity prayer vigil has been ongoing since the early 1900's.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, team members are holding vigil in their homes.  For prayer requests, call 1-816-969-2000.  You can also submit your prayer request online, in writing, or download their mobil app.  Please visit their website for more information.  www.unity.org/prayer.
