Prayer Vigil Guidelines

Prayer Vigil is a sacred experience. The Silent Unity tradition—more than 100 years of continual prayer—has impacted millions of lives around the world. We welcome your beautiful, prayerful energy to this sacred vigil.


Please read and accept the following guidelines before entering:

  1. You may hold a vigil for any length of time. However, vigil time ideally should be in 30-minute increments per the Silent Unity tradition.
  2. Please observe a mindful manner during your meditation and prayer time.
  3. Please create a sacred atmosphere. Remove cell phones, food, drink, or other distractions.
  4. Please refrain from reading, sleeping, lying down, playing music, wearing headphones, and/or walking around during the vigil to preserve the sacred energy.
  5. Please prepare an inspirational message or have your book of worship (such as Daily Word®) prior to entering the vigil so your sacred time is spent in prayer.
  6. Please bring a prepared prayer list with names that you would like to add to the vigil.
  7. At the end of 30 minutes you may choose to hold prayer and meditation for another 30 minutes, or you may pray out at this time.
