Unity Fellowship Church uses “affirmative prayer.” This unique way to pray is different than the traditional form of prayer. Rather than begging or beseeching God, affirmative prayer is a method which involves connecting with the spirit of God within and asserting positive beliefs about the desired outcome.
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).
In a more traditional setting ones prayer might say: “Please God, help me find a job.” By contrast, an affirmative prayer might say: “I am now guided to my right and perfect employment.”
Affirmative prayer reflects the certainty that we are each being led to our highest good, despite any temporary outer appearances.
In the words of our co-founder Charles Fillmore, “Prayer is communion between God and man. This communion takes place in the innermost part of man’s being. It is the only way to cleanse and perfect the consciousness and thus permanently heal the body. . . .Prayer is the most highly accelerated mind action known. It steps up mental action until man’s consciousness synchronizes with the Christ mind. It is the language of spirituality; when developed it makes man master in the realm of creative ideas . . . .
