I receive newsletters from Unity every so often, and today I received a letter reminding me of the upcoming 25th anniversary of World Day of Prayer.
I have always appreciated the altitude of thinking of the Unity faith, built on the teachings of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, Unity presents a much more forward-thinking, progressive stance on Christianity, placing a lot of focus on the healing power of prayer.
This years theme for World Day of Prayer is; Being a Healing Presence.
As I read through the included material, I took several moments to let that idea soak in.
What exactly is being a healing presence?
I can admit that it’s not something I succeed in making a reality for myself all of the time. The days where I have not decided to align myself with the Light of Christ and Holy Spirit, are the days I find myself in the greatest difficulty.
Those are the times I am in real need of being a healing presence.
For if I choose to be a healing presence, then I have decided to accept the healing power of our Father’s love into my life. I have decided to accept His Will, rather than trying to force my own.
And with this decision comes the capacity to share what I have received, and thus make more of it.
Now there is one of the most blessed dichotomies of Divinity I have ever learned.
In the Kingdom, to make more of something, you must give it away.
I, therefore, decide now to accept the Love of our Father, so that I may be the healing presence He created me as.
