Unity World Day of Prayer

Unity World Day of Prayer is a 24-hour period of prayer and meditation that joins together thousands of people around the world. Together we will hold the high watch during World Day of Prayer, affirming that there is no spot where God is not. Wherever we are, God is.

The 2020 theme, From Fear to Faith, will inspire your spiritual practice and strengthen your faith. On World Day of Prayer, Unity brings together prayer, music, meditation, and more to celebrate the power of prayer to transform our lives. 

 

Unity Worldwide will feature live stream events.

Locally, USC Westlake will feature both live stream and on-site events.

Our World Day of Prayer begins at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 9.

Create a Mandala. Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning “circle.” It represents wholeness. Creating a personal mandala can create a strong connection with the Divine. Examples and a starter kit are included. Please click on the picture to visit our Create a Mandala page.
