“Beloved, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours.”
– Mark 11:24
Unity is a ministry founded on the power of prayer. It was through prayer that our co-founders, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, received significant and seemingly miraculous healings. Prayer always has been central to Unity and to our ministry at Unity of Richmond.
The Power of Prayer
Prayer is an opportunity to experience God in the midst of our busy daily lives. Prayer consists of relaxation, concentration, meditation, realization and thanksgiving. As we release our fears and concerns we are able to experience the love, life and vitality of the Kingdom of God. In this kingdom we are comforted, revived and strengthened. In this kingdom our lives are transformed as we choose to change our perception and be transformed by the renewing power of Spirit.

The Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoni ng that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
The Prayer of Faith
God is my help in every need; God does my hunger feed;
God walks beside me, guides my way
through every moment of the day.
I now am wise, I now am true,
patient, kind and loving, too.
All things I am, can do, and be,
through Christ, the Truth that is in me.
God is my strength, unfailing quick;
God is my all; I know no fear.
Since God and Love and Truth are here.
*The Prayer for Protection was written by the late James Dillet Freeman, poet laureate of the Unity movement and director of Silent Unity, Unity’s worldwide prayer ministry.
