WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US FOR WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
Now, more than ever, the world needs our prayers for peace. Thousands of people will join Silent Unity®—an international, trans-denominational 24/7 prayer ministry—and Unity churches and centers around the world on September 14, 2017, for the 24th annual Unity World Day of Prayer. The theme of the 24-hour prayer event is “Peace in the Midst.” Unity of the Triangle’s affirmation this year is “The World Awakens to Peace.”
“World Day of Prayer gives us an opportunity to come together in celebration of our oneness with God, each other, and our world. Through prayer we foster peace and wholeness in our community and in our individual lives,” says Meemie Lohmueller, Unity of the Triangle’s Pastoral Care Director.
World Day of Prayer will begin with a contemplative opening ceremony on the evening of Wednesday, September 13 at 7:00 pm. During this time, we will hold peace in our hearts as we prepare for the powerful and timely practice of prayer. The 24-hour Prayer Vigil will begin at 8:00 pm and continue through until 8:00 pm on Thursday, September 14. Unity invites people of all faiths to join in this sacred prayer activity―either in person or from a distance. If you would like us to include you, a family member, or a friend in prayer, please email your requests to Meemie Lohmueller, Director of Pastoral Care. You may also contact Meemie by phone at (919) 832-8324, Ext. 110.
