Affirmative prayer is the foundation of Unity’s philosophy. This approach to prayer connects with the spirit of God that resides within each of us and expresses positive beliefs about the desired outcome. Affirmative prayer is the method of prayer that 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).
A traditional prayer might take the form of, for example, “Please, God, help me find a job.” The affirmative prayer is expressed as “I am now guided to my right and perfect employment.”
Affirmative prayer reflects the certainty that we are being led to our highest good, despite any temporary appearances.
Prayer Chaplains at Unity by the Bay
UBB has a team of dedicated prayer chaplains who serve our spiritual community in various ways. Their specialized training enables them to create and hold spiritual space when they pray with you in good times or when you are troubled.
After every (in-person) Sunday service at UBB, two chaplains are available for individual, private prayer. You are welcome to seek them out if you would find comfort in talking with one of them and experiencing a prayer that they will tailor to your request.
Our next Prayer Chaplain training will be held on July 9 - 11. See details here.
At the back of our sanctuary, a prayer box is available to receive your prayer requests. You are invited to write your request on a piece paper and place it in the box. The prayer team at UBB will pray over it for 30 days, and then it will be forwarded to Silent Unity, where it will be prayed over for an additional 30 days. All prayer requests are kept confidential by our office staff when they retrieve your request from the box and forward it for prayer.
Personal Contact with UBB
Our spiritual leader and prayer chaplains are committed to being available to our spiritual community for prayer. You are welcome to contact the church office at any time if you feel the need to talk with someone and request prayer. The phone number is 410-544-7990.

This is our method of prayer: acknowledging our oneness with God, claiming the ability that this gives, and expecting to have the things needed and conducive to spiritual progress.—Myrtle Fillmore, Healing Letters
Silent Unity, based at Unity Village, is a loving group of trained people who are ready and willing to pray with you at any time of the day or night.
