Rapid Response

We Join in Prayer for Those Affected by Hurricane Ida

We affirm protection and comfort for individuals, pets, and wildlife in the path of Hurricane Ida. We envision rescue and medical teams moving quickly and safely to where they may be needed. We give thanks that the presence and power of God is active in every situation, circumstance, and life—knowing divine good is expressing. We hold this truth for all those affected by this storm.

Please Join Us in Praying for the Wildfires in the Western US and Canada 

We know that our consciousness makes a powerful and positive difference. One of the greatest gifts Unity offers is to stay positive and hold a prayerful highwatch. 
 
We join together affirming God's powerful presence in the world and in our lives. We hold a prayerful highwatch, including the vision of the end of the wildfires in the United States and Canada. We know that whatever challenge may be unfolding, a stream of healing blessings is pouring forth now, and we are grateful. 
 
 
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.

The Grief of Isolation, Separation, and Sheltering at Home
Many of us are on an enforced sabbatical from our daily lives, being told to shelter in place. What can we do to alleviate feelings of isolation and separation, and how can we connect in a way that doesn't involve face-to-face contact? Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett, vice president of Unity Prayer and Practice at Unity World Headquarters, and Rev. Dr. Paul Hasselbeck are the guests.

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.
