Pray with a
Unity of Tampa Prayer Chaplain

Many thanks and blessings to our 2014 Prayer Chaplains: Wanda Bullock, Pam Greenstein, Julie Leon, Marisol Leon, Susan Sittner, Carol Abernathy, Brian England, Peter Klingman, and Joanne Wells.

If you desire one on one personal prayer for challenges or joys, Unity's Prayer Chaplains are available to pray with you after each service. A Prayer Chaplain will be in the Chapel just inside the sanctuary to pray with you after the services. Prayer Chaplains will create a sacred space for your thoughts and feelings, listen to them compassionately, pray with you, and keep your concerns completely confidential. If you have a prayer need and would for someone to be praying for you confidentially, please fill out a prayer card, drop it in the prayer box in the narthex. Your first name only and request will be passed to one of our well trained prayer team members who will hold you and your request in prayer every day for two weeks. Your card will be sent to Silent Unity and will be held in prayer for another 30 days.

To leave a prayer request for the Prayer Chaplains, please call 813-870-0731 ext 301.

I Am There

By James Dillet Freeman

Do you need Me?
I am there.
You cannot see Me, yet I am the light you see by
You cannot hear Me, yet I speak through your voice.
You cannot feel Me, Yet I am the power at work in your hands
I am at work, though you do not understand My ways.
I am at work, though you do not recognize My works
I am not strange visions. I am not mysteries.
Only in absolute stillness, beyond self,
Can you know Me as I am,
And then but as a feeling and a faith.
Yet I am there. Yet I am here. Yet I answer.
When you need Me, I am there.
Even if you deny Me, I am there.
Even when you feel most alone, I am there.
Even in your fears, I am there.
Even in your pain, I am there.
I am there when you pray and when you do not pray
Though your faith In Me is unsure,
My faith in you never wavers,
Because I know you, because I love you.
Beloved, I am there.
