NORTH BEND — Unity By The Bay will participate in World Day of Prayer with a special prayer service at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13, led by Rev. Karen Lowe, Licensed Unity Teacher and Spiritual Leader.
Thousands of people will join Silent Unity — an international, transdenominational, 24/7 prayer ministry — and Unity churches and centers around the world on Sept. 13, 2018, for the 25th anniversary of Unity World Day of Prayer. The theme of the 24-hour prayer event is “Courage to Heal.” This year’s affirmation is I am a healing presence. “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 align courageously as we accept that we are brave, bright, and beautiful,” said Rev. Lowe.
Unity invites people of all faiths to join in this sacred prayer activity. Names can be submitted for prayer at the service or online atworlddayofprayer.org. Unity also will 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.
