2023 United in Prayer Day
March 3 - March 4
March 3-4, 2023
United in Prayer Day
A free, globally-hosted 23-hour day of prayer accessible via Zoom
In the global unity of silence as God’s first language,
we hold vigil for suffering humanity and all creation,
and we honor Fr. Thomas Keating’s birthday (March 7)
and the growing presence of Christ among us.
Join in silence and community at any time, as many times as you are able. Each hour will include at least 20 minutes of Centering Prayer, followed by an offering from the hosting group, which may include a video segment, the practice of Lectio Divina, selected readings, community sharing, chanting, etc.
As we participate in the 23 hours of United in Prayer, let us remember and hold in our hearts all the members of the worldwide Centering Prayer community who do not have access to Zoom / internet technology including those who live in remote areas and those who are incarcerated.
No registration necessary.
