Every year Unity churches all over the world come together for 24 hours to pray and lift up the world in an event called World Day of Prayer. Imagine a map of the world dotted with lights from every Unity church worldwide. The power of collective prayer is powerful and makes a difference. Prayer matters!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PRAYER VIGIL
Due to the pandemic, you may participate in the 24-Hour Silent Prayer Vigil from:
- The safety of your home and connect to the sanctuary via Zoom OR
- Come to the sanctuary while social distancing and masked
SIGN UP FOR 1 HOUR OF PRAYER
A link to sign up for a 1 hour of prayer will be made available on August 16th through September 6th. You may choose which hour you will participate in, whether in our sanctuary or at home. Our goal is to have someone in prayer, at home or in the sanctuary, for each of the 24 hours including the sleeping hours.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE PRAYER VIGIL
Once you have signed up for your 1-hour prayer appointment, either from home or coming into the sanctuary, we will email you instructions, suggested prayer and meditation practices, and a list of names to prayer over. Copies will also be available in the sanctuary.
If you choose to participate from home, you will email a Zoom link so participants in the sanctuary feel your love and light, and you will be able to see the sanctuary and feel the sacredness created in the sanctuary.
VIRTUAL OPENING CEREMONY
To prepare for the 24 Hour Silent Prayer, we will
Live Stream the Opening Ceremony
from 7:30 to 8:00 pm in the same way we
hold Sunday services.
This reverent and holy Opening Ceremony will create the sacred space in the sanctuary and in your home, and prepare your body and mind for your 1-hour of silent prayer and meditation.
Many congregants have said this is their favorite service of the whole year.
TO ENGAGE IN THE CEREMONY FROM HOME,
we suggest that you have a candle ready to light at the same time we light the Prayer Vigil Candle in the sanctuary at the beginning of the ceremony. You may even wish to participate in communion at home.
This is our opportunity to shift the pandemic and racism from fear to faith.
The world needs our light and our prayers!
Light a Virtual Candle
Unity World Day of Prayer is a global event. We invite you to light a virtual candle to represent your light shining in prayer.
