Prayer Chaplain Program
Here at Unity Spiritual Center in the Rockies we want to support our congregation with prayer. There are Prayer Chaplains available to pray with you after each church service. They do not counsel or advise; they just pray with you, which is a wonderful way to be supported. You can also call our Prayer Chaplain phone line at 719-322-5138 and leave a message, and a Prayer Chaplain will call you back within a day or two. If you need immediate prayer assistance, you can call Silent Unity at 1-800-NOW PRAY. Silent Unity has been in existence for over 125 years, and they are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is no fee for this service, and anyone is welcome to call for prayer. Each active member of our spiritual community receives a phone call once a month from their own Prayer Chaplain. They offer to pray with you about any area that needs this loving attention. This is one of the benefits of becoming a member.
How does a Prayer Chaplain differ from a Chaplain in a hospital or care facility?
Unlike hospital chaplains, Prayer Chaplains are not ordained and are not trained to counsel people. Prayer Chaplains are trained to do three things only: hold spiritual space, listen, and pray. Prayer Chaplains are not trained to go out and “minister” to the community-at-large but are trained as a lay resource to help meet the pastoral care needs within our church community.
