Prayer & Meditation

Your Prayer Requests

Prayer is the very foundation of the Unity faith. Initially begun as a result of receiving marvelous results to her affirmative form of prayer which healed her of tuberculosis, co-founder Myrtle Fillmore held prayer meetings in her home for many years, and many of her published letters are in response to requests for prayer.

All prayer requests received at Unity of Springfield are held in the strictest confidence. All emailed requests for prayer are forwarded to our Prayer Team, using first name only, such as: "Alison requests prayer for her upcoming job interview." We also send all prayer requests we receive to Silent Unity, where they are prayed over for 30 days.

If you would like someone to pray with you, we have Prayer Chaplains who have been specially trained, available at every church service. They are introduced during the service, and are available for private, individual, confidential prayer. Whether you have a need, or simply want to say "Thanks," you never have to feel alone with your prayer.

Silent Unity prayer support is available 24/7. The toll-free number is: (800) 669-7729, or you can submit a prayer to Silent Unity online at:

If prayer is our conscious effort to commune with the God of our understanding, then Meditation is the way we open ourselves to hear that, "...still, small voice" respond to our prayer.

When we meditate, we deliberately quiet our minds. It may be difficult to turn off our inner chatter; deadlines and commitments clamor for our attention, but with regular practice, we can learn to let go of those thoughts and just breathe.

Frequently during the Meditation part of our service, we give the instruction to focus on our breaths. You can practice right now. Just take a deeper breath than normal for a count of 5; hold it for a count of 5, and then release to a count of 5. Repeat 3 times. Simply slowing down our breathing is enough to calm our bodies, thereby allowing ourselves the space in which our Creator can commune with us.
