PRAYER, CLEANLINESS, AND COMMON SENSE

Effective June 1st, 2021, in alignment with the CDC and State of Michigan guidelines, USCL re-activated small group meetings.  As of June 20th, 2021, Unity began offering Sunday Services on location, in person, as well as live streaming the services on Facebook and Youtube.

Unity is a powerful prayer ministry.  Current world conditions do not change that.  In all situations, our first step is prayer.  At the same time, we know how important it is to support our prayers with action.

As we learn to co-exist in a world that includes Covid as well as other contagious diseases, there are many safety procedures which are beneficial for the prevention of colds, flu Covid and other communicable diseases.  

  1.  Low Risk Greetings. Greeting each other is often with a handshake or a hug. Let's not do that for awhile! There's an ancient Eastern tradition of acknowledging another with the Namaste (pronounced NAH-MAHS-TA) greeting. It means "the Divine (or the Christ) within me acknowledges and celebrates the Divine within you." With hands palm-to-palm (prayer-like) in front of your heart and a slight bow of the head, "Namaste" is a noninfectious way of saying "hi". If you must have that physical encounter, a right elbow bump or a right foot (outside to outside) bump are also noninfectious ways of "high-fivin' it".
  1. On-line Gathering:  Brand new, high tech audio/video equipment allows us to offer a high grade live streaming experience on Facebook and Youtube. If you're not feeling well, stay home! Recordings of the live service are available on this website, Facebook and Youtube so that you can participate as your schedule allows.
  1. Hands Down:
  1. Hand Sanitizer:  Hand sanitizer is offered at each table in the sanctuary of the Great Hall.
  2. Hands washed: well and often. TRY AFFIRMING THE PRAYER OF PROTECTION SLOWLY WHILE YOU WASH YOUR HANDS! The Light of God surrounds us. The Love of God enfolds us. The Power of God protects us. The Presence of God watches over us. Wherever we are, God is.  And all is well.
  3. Keep from touching your face, particularly near your eyes, nose and mouth -- these are the portals thru which germs and viruses can infect you. Many of us touch our faces frequently, thus frequent hand washing will minimize our exposure.
  4. "Protect your coughs" by coughing and sneezing into your elbow and/or a tissue. The virus-carrying droplets can travel 3-6 feet to be inhaled by others or to infect surfaces that might later be touched by others. If you have the virus, it's important to keep it to yourself!
  5. Eat nourishing foods. Those will help your immune system be most robust and your immune defenses maximized.
  1. Prayer: Time in prayer and meditation improves the body’s resiliency.  For your convenience, we have included a prayer you may want to use as we stem the tide of fear and confusion.
  • Through prayer, we call forth an outbreak of God-given health and accelerated recovery.
  • Our prayers impact the listening audience of a trillion cells in each of our physical bodies.
  • Infilled with the regeneration of God strengthening every cell of our bodies, our immune systems are fortified.
  • We are constantly guided to do those things which will support our bodies in maintaining full and vibrant health.
  • We are protected by Divine Presence at all times, in all crowded places and our alone places.
  • Wholeness and vitality are now made manifest both as restored health and an invigorated world economy.
  • And so it is. Amen.

A more detailed approach is posted on this link and pasted down below, as well as a longer version of a powerful prayer written by Rev. Christopher Chenowith.

Another prayer that you might use is: We know that God is a Love that has no end and a Power that knows no bounds. God’s healing power of Divine Life is restoring, healing, and revitalizing our world in this very moment. We let go of any fears or anxieties, and we affirm that all are safe, healthy, and protected. We bless all those who support us in maintaining vibrant radiant health. We express Divine Life in all we think, say, and do. We bless our global family with radiant health, peace of mind, and abundant love.  In your meditation, you might visualize yourself in the bubble of God's embracing Love. Nourished and nurtured by God's permeating energy of Life, see that energy healing and infusing every cell of your body with Its Divine Nectar. Visualize a barrier of protection surrounding you. KNOW at the very core of your Beingness that you are blessed in this very moment with health and vitality! And so it IS!

Thank you for your continued support of Unity Spiritual Center of Lansing and for your help in keeping our community safe and vibrant for everyone.

Blessings,  Rev. Sharon J. Ketchum

 

Using our collective common sense and the above coping strategies, we will cocreate an experience of health and wholeness! We are blessed right now! And so it is! Amen

Longer Prayer for Recovery from Coronavirus Prayer

"Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and God will say, Here I am." Isaiah 58:9

 

We know that God can turn the tide. 

We know that our readers number more than a million strong – and the strength and power and effectiveness of united prayers can spiritually turn the tide in national and international affairs. 

Nothing opposed to God’s good can last.

Prayer can cause an outbreak of God-given health and accelerated recovery.

As you say this prayer there is a listening audience of a trillion cells in your physical body, awaiting your direction.

We pray that this God empowered prayer can promote an upturn in comfort and confidence. We know that God is the never failing, all providing source of health for ALL people, everywhere.

God is the Creator that creates life in a miraculous nine months’ time. God is also the re-creator of life and full recovery under the Divine blueprint of perfection.

May God’s Divine blueprint be made manifest in each of us NOW.

We pray that God the Creator creates atmospheres of perfection and complete sanitation.

We pray that we are protected by God, surrounded with the Divine presence at all times, in all crowded places, and our alone places. 

We pray that we are infilled from the top of our heads to the bottom of our feet, to the ends of our fingers, with the regeneration of God that strengthens every cell and ongoing fortification of our complete immune systems.

We put on the full armor of God.

We pray that God guides us away from harm.

We pray that we do not inadvertently do harm to others.

We pray, dear God, that You will remind us to vigorously wash our hands and keep us from the habit of touching our face.

We will learn that we can love mentally and not need to shake hands, or touch, at least temporarily, as this goes away forever. 

Thank You, God, that You will protect the caregivers, wonderful doctors, and nurses, and guide those in governments with exact precision on the best testing and medicines towards permanent healing. 

We pray that every scientist mind is infilled with the direct guidance of the Mind of God, and Divine ideas rule the day.

We pray that those that have the virus experience the immediate Divine intervention help of God to lessen its effects and quicken their permanent recovery.

We pray that those affected are helped financially with God’s unexpected supply and prosperity to take away that concern.

With God’s help this virus will pass and will soon be a distant memory as complete vitality and energy is experienced again.

May God’s power remove our individual fears and give us each the confidence to live our lives that we have been given.

God’s pattern of perfection in us is now expressed as a re-creation of health and wholeness in body.

Thank You, God, for restored health, and vital economy in our world. This challenge is touched by God - health and vitality is brought into perfect manifestation beginning now.

In Jesus Christ’s name… Amen
