Daily Watch for the week of April 3rd-April 10th, 2016
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
196 — WATCH lest you work to remove from yourself errors that cling to you, instead of realizing that you must overcome your belief in their reality, your fear of them, and the suggestion that, as a child of God, you can have a mind other than God, divine Mind. Then they fall away of their own accord.
Iron filings adhere to a coil of wire through which an electric current is flowing. When the current is shut off, the iron filings fall away. In like manner the various manifestations of error cling to us, because of our belief in the reality of error. When our sense of the reality of error is overcome, its manifestations fall away of their own accord.
To The Watchersfrom Watches, Prayers, and Arguments, as given by Mary Baker Eddy, page 49
“Hear, O Israel, for the Lord, our God, is one God.” You are not to come in your own name to pray. You are not to control any mind. You are to come only in the divine strength, and know that God will rule and does, and that hypnotism and evil minds cannot, and do not, control men or governments. All power is God, good. This is my only formula to Christian Scientists for prayer, and God will give you faith that will remove mountains.
