In the stories of Holy Week (the week between Palm Sunday and Easter), the accounts of Jesus and his followers are rich with the examples and practices of prayer. From the Psalms chanted by the crowds on Palm Sunday to Jesus's prayer of gratitude on Holy Thursday and his prayers of forgiveness on the cross, prayer fills every moment of this week. Here in this century, we have more access to and facility with prayer than at any other time in human history. The global information age has made prayer available at our fingertips via computers and smartphones. And for the last 100 years, you can call to receive prayer 24 hours a day, seven days per wek, at Silent Unity, Unity's affirmative prayer line.
I know that when I found Unity and New Thought teachings, I had to let go of my old ideas of what prayer was, and develop a new understanding before I could fully incorporate it into my spiritual practices and my everyday life. Now, for me, affirmative prayer is instrumental to my growth and well-being. Join us on Palm Sunday as we talk about the art and practice of prayer in our everyday life.
