United in Prayer Day
A globally-hosted 24-hour day of prayer accessible via Zoom
In the global unity of silence as God’s first language,
we gather in prayerful, faithful vigil for the suffering of all humanity and all creation.
We also honor Fr. Thomas Keating’s birthday (March 7)
and the growing presence of Christ among us.
Join in silence and community at any time, as many times as you are able. Last year many people experienced a powerful transmission of Spirit and transformation of being by attending multiple sessions, as if on retreat. Each hour will begin with at least 20 minutes of Centering Prayer, followed by an offering from the hosting group, which may include a video segment, the practice of Lectio Divina, selected readings, community sharing, chanting, etc. Please see the schedule of each group’s offering below.
To participate, simply click on the link below to enter the Zoom prayer chapel. No need to register. All are welcome.
Let us also remember and hold in our hearts all the members of the worldwide Centering Prayer community who do not have access to Zoom / internet technology, including those who live in remote areas and those who are incarcerated.
