According to Charles Fillmore, Unity’s cofounder:
Prayer is the most highly accelerated mind action known. It steps up mental action until man’s consciousness synchronizes with the Christ Mind. Prayer is more than supplication. It is an affirmation of Truth that eternally exists, but which has not yet come into consciousness. It comes into consciousness not by supplication but by affirmation.
It is necessary to pray believing that we have received because God is all that we desire. The good always exists in Divine Mind as ideas, and we bring it into manifestation through the prayer of faith, affirmation, praise, and acknowledgment.
These are the seven necessary conditions for true prayer:
1. God should be recognized as Father.
2. Oneness with God should be acknowledged.
3. Prayer must be made within, in “the secret place” (Psalms 91).
4. The door must be closed on all thoughts and interests of the outer world.
5. The one who prays must believe that he has received.
6. The kingdom of God must be desired above all things, and sought first.
7. The mind must let go of every unforgiving thought.
