a positive path for spiritual living

Unity Church Prays With You

“Wherever we are, God is, and all is well.”  We pray affirming we are held in the light, love, power, and presence of God, and that our prayer connects us to each other in unity and Oneness. Whatever your prayer need, finding peace of mind provides a foundation of strength to face any situation.

• Unity Church Prayer Team and Prayer Chaplains

Our trained Prayer Chaplains at Unity Church in Albany are available to pray with you at the end of every Sunday Service when we are in-person. You can also reach prayer chaplains by email at unityprays@unityalbany.org or by calling Unity at 518-453-3603 ext 13. Your prayers are held in loving confidentiality.

• The Answer Box

Place your written prayers in the “Answer Box” in our lobby and Unity Church will hold them in prayer until the end of the month. We will then forward your request to Silent Unity, where they will be held in prayer in the Silent Unity Chapel for an additional 30 days.

• Online Guided Meditations

We create our life experiences through our way of thinking. One way to align ourselves with Spirit is through meditations. Go to unity.org/prayer/silent-unity-meditations and select a guided meditation from the list. Topics include Meditations for Everyday Living, for Healing, for Inner Peace, for Guidance, for Love and Comfort and more.

• Affirmative Prayer

Unity uses “affirmative prayer.” Rather than beseeching God, this method involves connecting with the spirit of God within and trusting that the refuge of God’s presence is available to us at all times! Affirmative prayer is the same method of prayer Jesus taught when he said, “So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24).

Favorite Unity Prayers


During the Second World War minister and poet James Dillet Freeman was asked to create a prayer for our men and women in the armed services. This is the prayer he created for them to say, in whatever situation they found themselves. He later published a shorter version that is used in Unity Churches everywhere.

Prayer for Protection

The Light of God surrounds me.
The Love of God enfolds me.
The Power of God protects me.
The Presence of God watches over me.
The Mind of God guides me.
The Life of God flows through me.
The Laws of God direct me.
The Power of God abides in me.
The Joy of God uplifts me.
The Strength of God renews me.
The Beauty of God inspires me.
Wherever I am, God is!


This prayer by Hannah More Kohaus (1745 – 1833) was a favorite of Myrtle Fillmore’s. Kohaus was an English religious writer and philanthropist.

The Prayer of Faith

God is my help in every need;
God does my every hunger feed;
God walks beside me, guides my way
Through every moment of this day.

I now am wise, I now am true,
Patient and kind, and loving, too;
All things I am, can do, and be,
Through Christ the Truth, that is in me.

God is my health, I can’t be sick;
God is my strength, unfailing, quick;
God is my all, I know no fear,
Since God and Love and Truth are here.


  1. When I first came to Unity of Albany it was because a long time acquaintance suggested that I come and experience the Community. I did. I returned.

    Four years later I participated in a New Member guidance class. I became a member on Dec. 16, 2018. (It is your choice to be a member, many attend our Community coming from diverse religious backgrounds and all are welcome.)

    So consider me a new acquaintance who is inviting you come and experience UNITY.

  2. Pls pls pray for the protection of my husband Vinod from all legal problems court cases and arrest. Pls pray that he is surrounded by divine protection always and does not face arrest. Thankyou

  3. Please pray for my friend Trevor, 30yrs old, just had a stroke yesterday. He lives a very unhealthy lifestyle with many serious addictions. Please pray that the Lord removes all addictions and restores him to peace and wellness.
    Thank you
