During the last decade of the Nineteenth Century a new Protestant faith was conceived in Kansas City, Missouri, that sought to reveal Christ's love and it was called Unity:
"Unity sums up affirmative prayer in one sentence: Stop thinking about difficulty, whatever it is, and think about God, instead. Thus the sick do not ask to be made well but affirm, 'I am a child of God and therefore I do not inherit sickness.' Instead of asking God for a better job or a prosperous business, the Unity prayer affirms, "God, my opulent Father, has poured out to me all resources and I am a mighty river of affluence and abundance... Assuring the alcoholic that he can be cured, Unity advises, 'Begin to change your thought about yourself. Say to yourself again and again until the truth of it stays with you, 'I am a spiritual being. I am created in the image of God and through His spirit in me I am able to meet everything in my life. I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.'"
