Prayer Chaplains

Our next Prayer Chaplain Training will be held via Zoom, Friday, November 5th from 6 - 8:30 pm, and Saturday, November 6th from 10 am to 5 pm. 

“Prayer...properly understood and applied,
is the most potent instrument of action.” - Mohandas Gandhi

As an extension of the Lead Minister, Prayer Chaplains play an important role at Unity of Walnut Creek. Prayer chaplaincy calls to those who wish to be of service through prayer and care of their spiritual family.
The most visible roles the Prayer Chaplains fill are at Sunday services, when they:
  • Pray with those seeking prayer support after services (you'll know them by their lavendar stoles).
  • Read the weekly prayer.
  • Conduct the meditation at the 9:30 and 11:30 services when they are being led by a lay guest speaker. 

Behind the scenes and just as importantly, the Prayer Chaplains:

  • Pray for every prayer request submitted.
  • Make phone calls to pray when someone is in need. 
  • Visit the homebound and sick, including hospital visits.
  • Work with local hospices.
  • Attend interfaith group meetings as they feel called.
  • Host the World Day of Prayer in September. 
  • Host a Prayer Vigil in November. 
  • Other activities as needed.

Participation in a 2-day training is reqiured to become a Prayer Chaplain. The training utilizes the prayer chaplaincy program from Love and Light Ministries.

More importantly, it requires a commitment on their hearts to help others through prayer and the presence of their care.
