Unity and Prayer
Since the beginning of the Unity movement, affirmative prayer has been the keystone of the organization’s growth.
In 1886 Charles and Myrtle Fillmore attended a lecture given by Dr. E. B. Weeks. Myrtle Fillmore walked out of the meeting affirming the idea she heard that “I am a child of God and therefore do not inherit sickness." She had been diagnosed before that with a terminal disease and told she had only months to live. This simple affirmative prayer led to a complete healing for her (she lived 40 more years).
Affirmative prayer has been the heart of Unity since those early beginnings. Silent Unity has received millions of prayer requests over the years, and most importantly, thousands of positive results have been experienced in the lives of people making those requests.
Silent Unity continues its Prayer Vigil and the Unity Centers, Ministries, and Study Groups have expanded this affirmative prayer work into communities all over the world.
Prayer Chaplains at Unity of Arlington continue the work that Charles and Myrtle Fillmore started over 100 years ago and bring the healing that can be experienced with affirmative prayer into our community.
