Unity of Mesa Celebrates Annual World Day of Prayer

Unity of Mesa Sanctuary will be joining with thousands of people and Unity churches and centers around the world on Thursday, September 13, for the 25th anniversary of Unity World Day of Prayer. The theme this year is Courage to Heal. The supporting affirmation is “I am a healing presence.”

World Day of Prayer gives us an opportunity to come together in celebration of our oneness with God, each other, and our world. Through prayer, we align courageously as we accept that we are brave, bright and beautiful with all the strength we need to create healing in the world.

The event begins at 11 a.m. with a contemplative prayer service consisting of sacred readings, music and meditation. From noon until 6 p.m., the Sanctuary will be open for healing prayers in a peaceful, sacred space. At 7 p.m., there will be a healing service with a variety of healing modalities, including sound/vibrational healing, music, tai chi/qigong breathwork, reiki, chanting, visualization and meditation, followed by the transforming of attendees’ prayers in a Burning Bowl Ceremony. 

Location: 2700 E. Southern Ave., Mesa. For more information, call 480-892-2700 or visit UnityOfMesa.org.
