Would you like prayer for yourself or a loved one?

Our Prayer Chaplains are happy to pray with you. We can be reached through the office by leaving a message for a call back at 770-534-0949, if not urgent.

If you would like someone to pray with you now, we invite you to call Silent Unity at 1-816-969-2000 or 1-800-669-7729 where prayer partners are available. You may also submit your prayer requests to Silent Unity online through the online prayer request form at  They will usually respond within twenty four hours.

You can  download the free UPRAY mobile app to your android or Iphone. In addition to prayer requests,  it features affirmations and meditations that change monthly. It is a great application that we recommend highly.

When two or more come together in prayer, we have the opportunity to recognize our oneness and miracles occur. It is an honor and a blessing to pray with you.

Prayer Chaplains are available on Sundays following our service.  We hold sacred space for the highest good for all.  We have chaplains available to pray with you for any concern or gratitude.  What is said to us in those times will be held in complete confidence and will not be brought up again, unless you bring it up to us.  We pray and release the concern to God.


Team Mission

To hold sacred space for the congregation, leadership, members and guests of Unity Of Gainesville.

To hold Unity of Gainesville and our designated prayer intentions in our monthly meeting prayer times and also in our daily prayer life.

What is the difference between Meditation and Prayer?

Affirmative prayer is the highest form of creative thought. It includes the release of counterproductive, negative thoughts, as well as holding in mind statements of spiritual truth. Through meditation, we experience the presence of God. Prayer and meditation heighten our awareness and thereby transform our lives.

If you would like to become a prayer chaplain, please speak with any of the prayer chaplains.
