Dr. Ulm and Holos University Graduate Seminary are pleased to share with you that they are happy with the results of the statistical analysis from the statistical consultant. We are certain that you will be pleased as well with the information once it can be disseminated. Dr. Ulm is continuing to finish writing the narrative of the dissertation, which he will defend the last week of July.
Once approved by the committee, most likely August, we will be sending out the specifics of the research project.
Thank you so much for your participation; your gift of your time and effort. Blessings to you!!!
Announces an Exciting New
Research Project on Prayer
Holos Doctoral Candidate Michael Ulm
This research project will use prayer and focused intention in a Ministerial Long-Distance Prayer Intervention, with Unity Prayer Agents praying for Unity Prayer Recipients. The use of prayer is expected to manifest changes in the felt sense of well-being in the participating Unity Church members as Prayer Recipients resulting from long distance prayer.
The Fillmores practiced the use of the spoken word through prayer. Neal Vahle writes in his book, The Unity Movement, Its Evolution and Spiritual Teachings, “…‘the group (Silent Unity Healing Department ) does all its work through the Word spoken in the name of Jesus Christ.’ ….They (Fillmores) declared: ‘The Word having in it all the potentialities of Being has quickening, vitalizing, strength-giving, harmonizing, health-creating, prospering power, and all who have the faith that makes one receptive to the Word get the benefit of it in new thoughts, new states of mind, new conditions in body and affairs,’…. ‘The spoken word was a key element in absent healing. The Silent Unity Healing Department employs it exclusively.’”
These teachings of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore regarding the use of prayer by Silent Unity practitioners have influenced the Principal Investigator's (Michael Ulm's) belief in the power and use of prayer. It is his belief that prayer is an effective intervention for change and motivates his ongoing prayer research. Ulm’s expanded belief in absentee prayer is what the study’s Ministerial Long-Distance Prayer Intervention is built upon and why Unity churches were chosen for this study.
Unity churches interested in this prayer research project are invited to investigate this web site further to gather information. This research project is proceeding forward and interested Unity churches’ leadership are ask to call or write the Assistant Investigator, Rev. Ellen Laperriere, at Admin@ALMIus.com, (850) 688- 3476 for further explain of this project, to answer any questions, or to schedule a visit by the AI to present an Informational Informed Consent meeting at their Unity church.
