Holding on to Faith

Holding on to Faith

I don’t remember my grandmother, but her death has cast a shadow over my adult life for as long as I can recall. At age 43, Odessa Abner, my paternal grandmother, was diagnosed with breast cancer. A year later, on January 17, 1974, she passed away with my father at her side.

I was 3 years old.

Prayer Support at Your Fingertips

Unity founders Charles and Myrtle Fillmore used the cutting-edge technology of their day to help Truth seekers along their spiritual paths. In 1907 Charles added telephones to the prayer work at Silent Unity® well before they were commonplace in homes. And, at one point, the number of telegrams for prayer support outnumbered handwritten letters.

Now, with uPray—a new, free mobile app—Unity World Headquarters is continuing the tradition of finding news ways to connect to people worldwide. 

Personal Transformation

Whenever change occurs in your life, whether you initiate the change or it is imposed on you by circumstances, the best place to start is by turning within and opening your heart to God in prayer.

As you center yourself in prayer, you become more receptive to the "still small voice" of God that offers guidance and fills you with the strength, courage, and confidence to meet any challenge. Prayer helps you tap into the wisdom of God, a source of limitless knowledge and insight. Allow your prayer time to offer a fresh perspective on all that is before you.

In the Silence

The silence is a holy place, a place of stillness and peace. It is not far away. It is right where you are now. It is right where you are whenever you shut the doors of your senses, still the importuning of your thoughts, and turn to God. When you enter, the world outside and its troubles melt away; when you leave, your body and mind are stilled, refreshed and restored.
