Hundreds of thousands of people across the globe will join Silent Unity, an international and transdenominational prayer ministry, and Unity churches around the world in a sacred partnership of prayer on Thursday, September 11, the 15th annual Unity World Day of Prayer. The theme this year will be "Celebrating Oneness, Healing the World."

This year, the Unity World Day of Prayer will also serve as an opening event for the worldwide celebration of 11 Days of Global Unity September 11-21, commemorated annually by hundreds of organizations around the world who sponsor gatherings, speeches, discussions, concerts, dances, public events and interfaith festivities to honor diversity as well as global oneness. Unity's 11 Days activities are being co-sponsored by the Association for Global New Thought, Unity School of Christianity and the Association of Unity Churches International.

The Unity World Day of Prayer is open to people of all faiths. Its purpose is to unite as many people as possible in prayer for one another. Each year, millions of names that have been submitted are read aloud and prayed for as part of the annual event. Unity believes World Day of Prayer is an opportunity to transform the world through prayer.
