What is Prayer?
"Prayer is when you talk to God; meditation is when you listen..." -- Diana Robinson
Prayer is communication with God and realizing the Christ within you.
Prayer is the mainstay of the Unity movement, as it is through prayer that we experience and manifest the power and presence of God in our lives. The Unity approach to prayer is affirmative, reflecting the truth that God's constant good is always unfolding in our lives, and in the world around us.
Through positive prayers, affirmations and meditations, we become aware of, and closer to, the Divine Presence within.
THERE IS TREMENDOUS POWER IN SHARING PRAYER WITH ANOTHER.
WE INVITE YOU TO SHARE YOUR PRAYER REQUESTS SO THAT OTHERS MAY LOVINGLY PRAY WITH YOU.
OUR PRAYER BOX
As you first enter the building, the Prayer Box is located on the table to the right. Simply write the date and the name of the person you are requesting a prayer for on the paper provided, and put it in the box. You can also submit a prayer request on this website with our Prayer Request Form. Names are held in prayer for that month, and are then sent on to Silent Unity for an additional month's prayers.
OUR WEEKLY EMAIL PRAYER LIST
Please send the names of people you are requesting prayers for to firstname.lastname@example.org. Their names will be added to a Prayer List that is sent out once a week to Columbine congregants. Requests need to be received by noon on Tuesday. At the end of each month, the names will be removed from our email list and forwarded to Silent Unity, for an additional month's prayer.
Our email service is protected from "Spambots" and other malicious software; further, congregants are reminded that this list is confidential and not to be shared. You are also welcome to omit last names when submitting requests to the email list if you are concerned about confidentiality.
Confidentiality is lovingly held in our Columbine Prayer Ministries. Except as noted here, all prayer requests are confidential. For the safety of all concerned, if a prayer is requested concerning an impending suicide, an abusive situation, or a threat of bodily harm, the prayer leaders and/or the minister will notify the appropriate authorities.
The Power of Prayer
For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.
-- Matthew 18:20
