Prayer Chaplaincy

Prayer Chaplaincy

portland lightUnity of Greater Portland is a ministry where people are empowered to pray with one another, recognizing God’s presence and power in every moment.

Our prayer chaplains are here to create and hold spiritual space for you, to listen from the heart, to pray with you, and to hold in confidence what is shared.

Each month, our prayer chaplains telephone active members of our church family, an activity called “wellness calling.” The chaplain introduces himself/herself and ask to speak to you. The prayer chaplain asks how you’re doing and if there’s anything you’d like to pray about. If you desire a prayer, the prayer chaplain will, for a few moments, lead you into a prayer consciousness, and join you in a short prayer. If you have not established a call time with a chaplain, please call the chaplain line at (207) 893-1233, ext. 3, and leave your name and number and a good time to call you.

The prayer you request need not be a prayer of petition (an “asking for” prayer); it might be a prayer of praise or thanksgiving for something wonderful in your life, or perhaps a prayer of protection for a loved one who is far away. This telephone prayer, like all of our chaplains’ work, is strictly confidential – just between you and your chaplain.

If the call comes at an inconvenient time, you and your chaplain may work out a better time for your monthly call.

If you do not wish to receive a monthly call from a prayer chaplain, just let us know by telling the prayer chaplain during the first call, or you can call the church at (207) 893-1233. In that case, we will be happy to remove your name from the “wellness calling” list.

This “wellness calling” is one of the main functions of the Unity chaplains who are serving you.

Another of their functions is to offer one-to-one prayer after each Sunday service with all who desire it. The two prayer chaplains on duty each Sunday will be introduced by the minister and will be wearing distinctive badges.

We hope that you will find the services of our Unity prayer chaplains a positive and helpful asset to your lives.
