Prayer and Support at Unity

Prayer and Support at Unity

 we can never be separate from the Presence of Spirit as love, harmony, wholeness, abundant supply wisdom, divine right action, and joy! 

As we pray, align with the highest truth about the spiritual nature of ALL life, we align with a deeper experience of Oneness, and we live, supported, empowered, from and as that Oneness.


Prayer Chaplains

We have a loving and supportive Prayer Chaplain Team. At Unity of Portland, our chaplains go through an educational and training process which also incorporates regular spiritual practices of prayer and meditation. Identify our chaplains by their white or purple stoles at the front of the sanctuary after every service. They are happy to pray with you in confidence and compassion.

Silent Unity can also be reached for prayer 24 hours a day by calling 1 800 669-7729


Request Prayer

You can request prayer using the form on the bottom of this page. Our Prayer Circle will hold your request in loving and confidential prayer for 30 days, and then forward that request to Silent Unity, where prayer for you and your request will continue for another 30 days.


All prayer requests are held in confidence and loving high faith. Know that the moment you submit your request, Spirit moves to express as that which you or your loved one truly needs. Whether it be healing, divine order, right action, prosperity, employment, harmony or love, we know that all needs are met by and in God.

Spiritual Counseling

Spiritual counseling is a process of allowing the counseled to be open and receptive to God within.

Spiritual  counseling is the realization that God is the only answer. The Great  Counselor, Jesus, often asked: Do you want to be healed? The counselor  cannot do the healing for the counseled. He/she can only hold sacred  space and energy for the healing to take place. The counselee’s  dedication and commitment to finding healing, prosperity, peace of mind,  and joy in life is up to him/her.seling isn’t psychotherapy  or advice-giving; it’s prayerfully knowing that all we need is already  present within us.

As always, Spirit is in charge  of the session, and the counselor has prayerfully prepared him/herself,  the counseling space and the session before it has even commenced. The  issue/challenge is then shared, and the counselor will share spiritual  principles, techniques and other appropriate spiritual tools for the  healing of the issue. A prayer or meditation is used to conclude the  session. The standard time allotted for a spiritual counseling session  is approximately 50-60 minutes, depending on the issue.

Our Licensed Unity Teachers are available for counseling upon request.
