“World Day of Prayer gives us an opportunity to come together in celebration of our oneness with God, each other, and the world,” said Rev. Eileen Patra of Unity of Livonia. “Through prayer we foster peace and wholeness in our community and in our individual lives.”
The theme this year is, “Discover the Power Within – Unleash Your Divine Potential.” Unity churches throughout the United States and around the world will be observing this sacred event. Silent Unity invites all people to pray with us from wherever they are, and as a symbol of their prayers, to light a virtual candle at: www.worlddayofprayer.org. The candles will be displayed as points of light on a global map.
