Prayer Chaplain Ministry
Prayer is one, if not the most, powerful process in the world to heal, reveal, enrich, and uplift our lives. When we make a conscious contact with God, asking for help, miracles happen. Yet, many of us find it difficult to reach out and ask for prayer support. This special message is to invite you to say yes to prayer support for yourself.
Every Sunday here at Unity Church of Practical Christianity, one of our trained Prayer Chaplains will be available to pray with you after our 10:30 Church Service in the Prayer Chapel.
We have also prepared a Wellness Calling Program. Once a month a Prayer Chaplain will call those who have requested prayer support to pray with them if desired, and continue to hold them in prayer daily.
If an emergency should arise, then each person will have his/her Chaplain’s phone number at hand to quickly call for prayer support, home or hospital visitation, or as a quick connecting link with one of our Ministers. In my past experience, it has also been a wonderful tool for teaching our youth about prayer.

Satoria Lindsey - An interest in spiritual unfoldment and learning the power of prayer began for Satoria in Sunday school and has continued to this day. After being trained and having worked as a high school teacher, a Toastmasters-speaker, and a Johnnie Colemon Institute teacher, she has also assumed roles in various other genres of leadership.

Taught to pray as a child, B.J. Remi has family stories of her praying in secret as early as age three. Raised by parents who never restricted her imagination or her intuitive nature, she was always able to explore who she was spiritually. As she says, "I know that I Am who I Am … becoming, still."

She trained as a Unity Chaplain in 2007 and just recently completed a refresher course of that training. "I believe with a knowing, the power of sacred prayer and am glad to be of service as a Unity Chaplain at Unity Church of Practical Christianity."
