 Happy Birthdays to Our Co-Founders!


Fourth Principle; Original Wording:

4. Prayer is creative thinking that heightens the connection with God-Mind and therefore brings forth wisdom, healing, prosperity and everything good.


Foruth Principle; Unity of Auburn:

4. Prayer is creative thinking that changes us - our consciousness - so that we can know and experience what it means to be an expression of God.


Unity Affirmative Prayer:

“Understanding shows that prayer is more than asking God for help in this physical world. Actually, we have become a human race of praying beggars. Prayer is not supplication or begging.” Charles Fillmore Dynamics For Living pg 95


“Prayers aren't sent out at all! Sometimes that is our trouble. Where would we send our prayers? We should direct them to our minds and hearts and affairs. We commune with God-Mind within our own consciousness. Prayer is an exercise to change our thought habits and our living habits, that we may set up a new and better activity, in accord with the divine law rather than with the suggestions we have received from various sources.” Myrtle Fillmore, Healing Letters pg 18


“You ask for your good in the sense of claiming your inheritance… a good worker, who comes in early and leaves late, who always tries to improve his performance and to help the company, is “asking” for promotion. And it usually comes, because he has created conditions that make that result inevitable. You ask for life by affirming life. You ask for success by getting in the consciousness of success… The purpose of prayer, then, is to affirm in our consciousness that which is true of God and of our relationship with [God].” Eric Butterworth, Discover The Power Within You
