Unity Celebrates 23rd Annual World Day of Prayer
Thousands of people will join Silent Unity—an international, transdenominational 24/7 prayer ministry—and Unity churches and centers around the world on September 8, 2016, for the 23rd annual Unity World Day of Prayer. The theme of the 24-hour prayer event is “Discover the Power Within: Unleash Your Divine Potential.”
This year’s affirmation is “As I discover the power within, I unleash my divine potential.”
“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.”
The 24-hour Prayer Vigil will begin the evening of Wednesday, September 7, and continue through Thursday, September 8. Unity invites people of all faiths to join in this sacred prayer activity. Names can be submitted for prayer online at worlddayofprayer.org.
“The theme ‘Discover the Power Within: Unleash Your Divine Potential’ will be visibly expressed at Unity World Headquarters in Unity Village, Missouri,” said Rev. Patricia Bass, Interim Vice President of Silent Unity. “The 24-hour Prayer Vigil traditionally begins with a beautiful candlelight walk across our central courtyard. We will also symbolize the power of our united prayers by asking people everywhere to light a virtual candle at worlddayofprayer.org. The candles will be displayed as points of light on a global map.” The virtual candlelighting experience will continue through September 8.
