We Join our Prayers with Yours

We enfold our world in prayer, joining together in thoughts of well-being, peace and safety for those affected by recent shootings, including those in Buffalo, NY and Lexington, KY. We affirm that the Love of God is mightier than hate and greater than any challenge that we may encounter. God is an endless stream of love and light which expresses through all souls and brings about harmony and healing. Together, we pray for and envision a loving world that works for all!
 

 

 
 
 
 

Together We Pray for the People of the Ukraine

Our hearts join together in prayer for the people of Ukraine. We hold the highest vision for peace and tranquility! We give thanks knowing that God is present in every situation.

During World War II, an adviser to Prime Minister Winston Churchill organized a group of people to stop whatever they were doing at a certain time each night to pray and usher in peace, safety, and security.

They did this every day, and it was as if the city stood still, such was the power of prayer. The result was so overwhelming that the bombings were stopped after a short time!

Now we are organizing again, a group of people of different nationalities, to spend one minute praying daily for the peace, well-being and security of our countries, for an end to the problems that oppress, and for Spirit-guided decisions of leaders around the world.

Join in this initiative with a prayer from your own spiritual tradition as you feel led. Please feel free to share out to those you know in your congregations and communities!

Unity Worldwide Ministries has designated 50% of its monthly tithe to organizations that are supporting the Ukraine.

Our Prayers Continue for the Coronavirus Outbreak
 
We invite you to join in one of the following prayers or one of your own choosing.
 
We wrap our world in prayer today, knowing God is greater than whatever we face—greater than illness, loss, injustice, and confusion. God is an ever-flowing stream of love and wisdom, pouring through each of us to anoint our earth with healing, harmony, and wholeness.

We know that God is a Love that has no end and a Power that knows no bounds. God’s healing power of Divine Life is restoring, healing, and revitalizing our world in this very moment. We let go of any fears or anxieties, and we affirm that all are safe, healthy, and protected. We bless all those who support us in maintaining vibrant radiant health. We express Divine Life in all we think, say, and do. We bless our global family with radiant health, peace of mind, and abundant love.

Financial Considerations

Our Loaves & Fishes Fund was created in March 2020 as a way to respond to the financial effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic on our Unity communities. The program was updated in November 2020 to allow multiple payments per year and to remove the Payroll Protection Program (PPP) restriction.
