Greetings!

 

Prayer is the foundation upon which Unity was established and is at the heart of every aspect of our spiritual community at Unity Church of Overland Park. In the 122 years of prayer at Silent Unity, we have witnessed the power of minds and hearts united with a single focus in prayer. In this faith, please join us and Silent Unity in an affirmation of divine good. These affirmative words bless the USA and all nations on which you are guided to focus your prayer energy.

We have faith in the love and wisdom of God
within every person and situation.
We affirm that our country's citizens
and its leaders are guided to
positive, prosperous, harmonious action
that manifests the highest good for all people.

We give thanks for our loving spiritual community, for our harmonious and prosperous nation, and the good that is present for all people, all nations and our planet.

Peace and blessings,
Unity Church of Overland Park
