It’s often said that prayer is the foundation of Unity, but what does that mean? It also begs the question: What is prayer? Our last two Sunday sermons have tried to answer those questions, along with: “Why pray?” This Sunday, we’ll look at a very familiar prayer and try to see it with fresh eyes. Join us as we share a different perspective on The Lord’s Prayer.
From anthropologists to religious historians, no one really knows when, where or how prayer originated. What is apparent is that prayer is an important part of all religions. In honor of Unity’s World Day of Prayer, we will look at two aspects of prayer that seem to be common to all the world’s religions. Those aspects are: 1) A sense of connection to something higher; and, 2) Prayer involves asking for something. Prayer is ultimately an expression of a mystery that expresses in, through and as humanity.
