About World Day of Prayer:
Thousands of people will join Silent Unity®—an international, transdenominational 24/7 prayer ministry—and Unity churches and centers around the world on September 14, 2017, for the 24th annual Unity World Day of Prayer. The theme of the 24- hour prayer event is “Peace in the Midst.” This year’s affirmation is “I am peace in the midst of all matters!”
The 24-hour Prayer Vigil will begin the evening of Wednesday, September 13, and continue through Thursday, September 14. Unity invites people of all faiths to join in this sacred prayer activity. Names can be submitted for prayer online at worlddayofprayer.org. “The theme ‘Peace in the Midst’ will be visibly expressed at Unity World Headquarters in Unity Village, Missouri,” said Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett, vice president of Silent Unity. “The 24-hour Prayer Vigil traditionally begins with a beautiful candlelight walk across our central courtyard. We will also 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.” Details about Unity World Day of Prayer events at Unity Village and in other communities are online at worlddayofprayer.org.
