Article Body:
On Sept. 14, hundreds of thousands of people will come together in prayer
during the 13th annual Unity World Day of Prayer. This interfaith event
is open to people of all faiths and all walks of life.

Unity is a worldwide movement founded in 1889   that helps people of all
faiths apply positive spiritual principles to   their daily lives. It is
best known for Daily Word, a monthly magazine   of inspirational messages
that is distributed to about 1 million people   in 175 countries.

Since 1994, millions of people have joined in a partnership of prayer
during World Day of Prayer vigils held at many of the nearly 900 Unity
churches and centers around the world.

Last year, participants offered prayers for an estimated 1.3 million
people during the prayer vigil at the Unity world headquarters at Unity
Village, Mo. People send the names of friends and family to Unity on
prayer lists for this vigil. Each name is read quietly and sacredly
during the vigil.

"In Unity, we know that prayer works," said Unity President Charlotte
Shelton. "We host World Day of Prayer as an opportunity for humankind to
experience a transformation of health, abundance and love on a global
level."

Silent Unity, the transdenominational prayer ministry of Unity, maintains
a 24-hour prayer vigil every day of the year and receives more than 2
million letters, telephone calls and Internet requests for prayer
annually.

friends and family members for the prayer vigil, and to enjoy an

You can also find Unity churches that serve as host centers for local
World Day of Prayer activities.
"We invite people to make a sacred connection with God and prayer
participants around the world as they unite in positive attitude,
understanding and love on this special day," Shelton said.
