CELEBRATE WORLD DAY OF PRAYER AT UNITY OF THE TRIANGLE
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!
Unity of the Triangle will once again participate in World Day of Prayer beginning with an in-person and livestream Opening Ceremony on Wednesday, September 13, 2023 from 7:00-8:00 pm. The 24-Hour Silent Prayer Vigil will begin at 8:00 pm at the end of the ceremony with the ringing of the bell and will last until Thursday, September 14, 2023 at 8:00 pm.

With an open heart, I claim the healing, loving light of God.

SIGN UP FOR 1 HOUR OF PRAYER
You can now sign up for a 1 hour of prayer during the 24 hour Silent Prayer Vigil. 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.
Last day to register for In-person and Online participation is Sunday, September 3.
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 receive an email with 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.
To prepare for the 24 Hour Silent Prayer, we will
begin with the Opening Ceremony which you can join either in-person or online from 7:00 to 8:00 pm .
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.
The world needs our light and our prayers!
