Silent Unity Prayer Line





Click on this link to Request prayer

For more than 120 years, Silent Unity has been praying with and for people throughout the world. Whatever your prayer need, finding peace of mind provides a foundation of strength to face any situation. Your request is a sacred trust and is kept confidential. There is never a charge for this service.



From Terria:
"In these challenging times, many of us are looking for help and often do not know where to get it.
May I suggest a call to Silent Unity to request prayer for whatever situation is troubling you?

I have been a recipient of prayer through Silent Unity several times through the years and can personally vouch for the inspiration, hope, and help that you receive through praying with the Silent Unity Prayer Associates."

                                       
                                       Just a click away from:  Silent Unity

Currently, Silent Unity receives more than 3,700 calls a day. A staff of dedicated and well-trained prayer associates answer calls with a greeting familiar to many through the decades: “Silent Unity.How may we pray with you?”
Compassionate listening is followed by an invitation to focus on the presence and power of God within. Affirmative prayer is spoken, acknowledging God's constant good and envisioning its demonstration in the lives of those uplifted in prayer.



For 120 years, Silent Unity has been a window into the hearts of people around the globe seeking prayer support. Literally millions of people have contacted Silent Unity for affirmative prayer. And there are countless extraordinary prayer stories of people's faith being uplifted, health renewed, relationships restored and prosperity realized.
Those who call, write or email are encouraged to use affirmative prayer, the same method of prayer Jesus taught when he said, “So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:


The 5 basics ideas that  make up the Unity belief system:


We encourage you to explore and apply Unity teachings based on your own spiritual understanding. We believe this spiritual understanding is enhanced through reflective prayer and meditation. The five basic ideas that make up the Unity belief system are:
  • 1. God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere.
  • 2. We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good.
  • 3. We create our life experiences through our way of thinking.
  • 4. There is power in affirmative prayer, which we believe increases our awareness of God.
  • 5. Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.
Silent Unity is much more than a resource for prayer though, there is also:
Unity Online Radio
Retreats & Events, and
much more.

One Spirit TOP-RATED Nonprofit of 2012

One Spirit, one of the best charities around, and one that specifically targets Native Americans, has just been awarded this honor:









Check out the web site by clicking on the link below and see the good work they've been accomplishing among Native Americans

One Spirit

There are many ways to help Native Americans, through One Spirit, including the donation of money to fund various projects, or sponsoring an elder, a child or teen, or a family: but one way to make an immediate difference is by donating items to people
who's needs are posted on The Okini List.

Okini is a Lakota word meaning “to share material things”
Imagine not having coats or shoes for your growing children or blankets for them or elders to stay warm in the bitter South Dakota winter where the temperatures can reach below zero.  
The OKINI PROGRAM allows us to reach out and touch peoples lives, letting them know we care.  This is a unique program that allows individuals, families and/or with friends to share with the Lakota in different ways.


One way is the OKINI LIST which is a list of families and individuals who are in desperate need of clothing, shoes, blankets, pots & pans, etc.  These families in need have been listed by our intake coordinator.  The wonderful thing about this program is that you are able to look at the list of people and families to see what you can help with.  By offering a helping hand, you can help change their lives for the better.

This list is updated frequently with new families and shows what existing families have already received.  You can choose to help an individual, part of a family or a whole family.  The great part is that when you notify the coordinator with what you have, they will give you the individuals full name and address and you will be able to mail it to them directly. 
Your gift to the family will then be posted next to the families name. Imagine the happiness they have when they receive a box from a unknown new friend and realize that someone cares about them.  It does not matter how much or little you send, you are touching some ones life.  The items you send can be new or gently used.




Some of the sad stories are of a mother who can not send her children to school because they have no clothes or shoes that fit.  A grandmother who has just received custody of her four grandchildren and they have no clothes other than what they are wearing.  A family who has lost their belongings from a fire and have little clothes, blankets or heaters.
The OKINI PROGRAM is a wonderful way to become involved with the One Spirit family.  As you can see, there are many ways to help and we are always looking for creative new ideas to expand our program.  Please visit often as our list of needs is always changing.
