We Join our Prayers with Yours for Peace and the End to Gun Violence
Together, We Hold the Highwatch for Those Affected by Recent Strong Weather Conditions
Together We Pray for the People of Ukraine
Our hearts join together in prayer for the people of Ukraine. We hold the highest vision for peace and tranquility! We give thanks knowing that God is present in every situation.
During World War II, an adviser to Prime Minister Winston Churchill organized a group of people to stop whatever they were doing at a certain time each night to pray and usher in peace, safety, and security.
They did this every day, and it was as if the city stood still, such was the power of prayer. The result was so overwhelming that the bombings were stopped after a short time!
Now we are organizing again, a group of people of different nationalities, to spend one minute praying daily for the peace, well-being and security of our countries, for an end to the problems that oppress, and for Spirit-guided decisions of leaders around the world.
Join in this initiative with a prayer from your own spiritual tradition as you feel led. Please feel free to share out to those you know in your congregations and communities!
Humanitarian Statement from Unity Worldwide Ministries
Unity Worldwide Ministries is an international spiritual organization which honors the inherent dignity and value of all humanity. We have great compassion for immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees and strongly support legislation that seeks humane immigration reform, including humanitarian treatment for families, adequate food, medical care, and essential services. We also support putting an end to discriminatory practices on the basis of national origin and stand in solidarity with those who advocate for legislative reform based on human rights for all those seeking asylum.
We Stand for Reproductive Rights
We at Unity Worldwide Ministries feel deeply disturbed and heartbroken by the decision of the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, denying the constitutional protections of women’s reproductive rights which have been in place for the past fifty years. The implications of this decision are far-reaching, since there is a real possibility that other human rights are in danger of being revoked as well.
UWM believes that all human life is sacred and worthy of respect. Because of our deeply held spiritual beliefs regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion we stand for the rights of women to make their own decisions concerning their bodies and their medical treatment. We believe that reproductive rights are human rights, which do not require government intervention, and we will advocate for those rights based on the foundational principles of our faith.
To the women who are being impacted by this decision, please know that our member ministries are committed to supporting you in every way we can. We pray that the combined efforts of all spiritual communities who advocate for human rights will make a powerful and positive impact on legislation that will free women to have autonomy over their reproductive rights and medical care.
Prayers for Guidance
Unity Worldwide Ministries joins in prayer for right outcomes. We acknowledge the worth of all people, including women, and we affirm the presence of infinite intelligence that guides decisions regarding their life's unique path including their health and reproductive choices. We give thanks for the insights, resources, and support that show up as answered prayer.
Nosotros en Unity Ministerios Mundiales nos sentimos profundamente perturbados y desconosolados por la decisión de la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos de anular Roe v. Wade, negando las protecciones constitucionales de los derechos reproductivos de las mujeres que han existido durante los últimos cincuenta años. Las implicaciones de esta decisión son de largo alcance ya que existe una posibilidad real de que otros derechos humanos también estén en peligro de ser revocados.
UMM cree que toda la vida es sagrada y digna de respeto. Debido a nuestras creencias espirituales profundamente arraigadas en la diversidad, la equidad y la inclusión, defendemos los derechos de las mujeres de tomar sus propias decisiones con respecto a sus cuerpos y su tratamiento médico. Nosotros creemos que los derechos reproductivos son derechos humanos que no requieren la intervención del gobierno y lucharemos por estos derechos basados en los principios fundamentales de nuestra fe.
Para las mujeres que se ven afectadas por esta decisión, sepan que nuestros ministerios miembros están comprometidos a apoyarlas en todo lo que podamos. Oramos por que los esfuerzos combinados de todas las comunidades espirituales que abogan por los derechos humanos tengan un Impacto poderoso y positivo en la legislación y dé libertad a las mujeres de tener autonomía sobre sus derechos reproductivos y cuidado médico.
Oraciones por guianza
Unity Ministerios Mundiales se une en oración por los resultados correctos. Reconocemos el valor de todas las personas, incluidas las mujeres y afirmamos la presencia de una inteligencia infinita que guía las decisiones sobre el camino único de su vida, incluidas sus opciones reproductivas y de salud. Damos gracias por las ideas, los recursos y el apoyo que se manifiestan como oración contestada.
Our Prayers Continue for the Coronavirus Outbreak
4/4/2023 We've connected with Beverly Pryor in Little Rock, Arkansas, whose home was hit by the recent tornado. She is displaced at this time and as we obtain additional information regarding her situation and that of her community, we will post an update here. Thank you for your prayers and thoughts of convern. Unity Worldwide Ministries extends our prayers for our church families.
9/29/2022 We've reached out to obtain information regarding our Florida ministries affected by hurricane Ian. While some ministries experienced damage to their building, most ministries reported no or minimal damage. We've learned that all ministries are up and running with electricity. We've communicated with the ministries who experienced damage and offered financial support to help with cleanup and repair. We realize it may take quite a while for affected communities to recover from the strong winds and flooding that occured during this storm. We join with you in prayer for safety and well-being of our credentialed leaders and church congregations.
9/20/2022 UWM has reached out to all of the Unity ministries in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic following hurricane Fiona. Credentialed leaders and ministries in Mexico have been contacted as well. We remain in prayer for the safety and well-being of our credentialed leaders, congregants, and their dear ones.
12/14/2021 UWM has been in touch with our ministries in Kentucky and Illinois where tornadic activity caused widespread destruction. To date, no ministry has reported damage and we commit to staying in touch to learn of any updates. Our prayers continue for the recovery and success of our communities and leaders.
