~ Charles Fillmore
Affirmative prayer focuses on a positive outcome, rather than on a negative situation. Listed here are some examples of affirmative prayer:
God's love is the vibrant harmony that sings in my heart.
I am a spiritual being, heir to the abundance of God's kingdom. My life is prospered and enriched.
With a heart open to God, I am inspired to right action and I am directed to my good.
As I keep my heart and mind centered in You, God, I feel Your peace infusing my entire being, and keeping me serene and secure.
Enfolded in Your powerful, healing love, God, I experience health and wholeness in mind, body and emotions.
My money is on a mission to make me financially free.
The Silent Unity prayer ministry was the founding work of Unity. It originated in the heart of co-founder Myrtle Fillmore, who, through her own spiritual awakening, was healed and began to share her ideas and consciousness with others. Myrtle's inspiration came from these words: "I am a child of God, and therefore I do not inherit sickness." As she held this idea in mind, she manifested healing through affirmative prayer.
Myrtle's husband Charles embraced technology, beginning with the printed word, for sharing Truth and prayer affirmations. In 1907, he added the new telephone technology to the prayer work of Silent Unity. Charles knew that this would enable even more people to receive the prayer support they desired. Silent Unity now prays individually with callers from around the world.
Affirmative prayer continues to be the cornerstone of the Unity ministry today. What began in the home of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in Kansas City, MO, as a personal prayer practice grew into praying with people who came to their home and then with those who called them for prayer. The Fillmores' labor of love and faith expanded to offices at Ninth and Tracy in Kansas City, and eventually to Unity Village, where the Silent Unity ministry continues to serve thousands of people each day.
