"Beloved, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours." (Mark 11:24)
 
 
Prayer and meditation are key spiritual practices in Unity. Simply put, prayer is talking to God, while meditation is listening. When we pray, we align our words with Truth. When we meditate, we get quiet and listen to Spirit's wisdom and peace found deep within us. Prayer does not change God; it changes us by raising our consciousness.
I am the heartbeat of eternity
I am caught up in the heart of love
Because I have a heart of love in me.
 
-James Dillet Freeman
