Prayer Ministry

How We Pray

Prayer is at the Foundation of Unity
At Unity Church of Citrus County, one of the ways we fulfill our mission is through prayer. Prayer is the foundation upon which Unity was established and is at the heart of every aspect of our spiritual community. Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts, as well as holding in mind statements of spiritual truth. Through meditation, we experience the presence of God. Prayer and meditation heighten our awareness and thereby transform our lives.

Prayer Chaplain Ministry
Our prayer chaplains are committed to the sacred Service of prayer. Our chaplains hold the "High Watch" during Sunday Services and also take time after Sunday Services to hold space and pray with you individually if you so desire. They also telephone our congregants each month to offer prayer support.

The role of our prayer chaplains is, quite simply, to pray. Chaplains are not counselors or advice-givers.

The core of our prayer chaplains' commitment is to:

  • Hold spiritual space
  • Lovingly listen
  • Pray from the heart
  • Hold in confidence what is shared

It's a role that helps participants discover their connection with the Divine in everyone.

Many of our prayer chaplains report that they stepped in to serve others but found that being a prayer chaplain blessed and benefited them most of all. By giving their time and maintaining a spiritual connection with the community, they got back more than they gave.
