Affirm Your Way to a Better Life is a Unity prayer virtual experience blending celebration, ritual, and renewal.
Are you looking for more peace, love, prosperity, or harmony in your life, especially during these uncertain times?
This virtual experience teaches practical ways to incorporate affirmative prayer in your life.
An affirmation is like an exercise for your outlook. These positive mental statements help redirect negative thought patterns. Throughout time, you begin to think—and act—differently.
Affirmative prayer is a key spiritual tool for shifting our focus away from our human circumstances. It turns our attention to our spiritual nature, being one with God.
Prayer is the most highly accelerated mind action known ... It is an affirmation of Truth that eternally exists, but which has not yet come into consciousness. It comes into consciousness not by supplication but by affirmation.
—The Revealing Word (Unity Books, 1959)
Presenters: Rev. Linda Martella-Whitsett, vice president of Unity Prayer and Practice, and the Silent Unity® leadership team—Trayce Riley and Matthew Kent—will be your guides to virtual experiences of reflections, prayer, meditation, contemplation, and celebration.
The Silent Unity team will be joined by musicians Marcy Baruch and Lisa Firestone.
