Daily Watch for the week of August 14th – August 21st, 2016
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
209 — WATCH lest you approach your problems as if you had to use your understanding to solve them, when the only scientific attitude with which to approach a problem is to know that you have none. Divine Mind holds the solution for every problem, on the basis that to God there are no problems. Thus you do not solve a problem in Christian Science; you reflect the Mind that knows no problems, and the effect of this reflection on your seeming problem is to meet it, whatever it may be. Human sense then rejoices, declaring that the problem has been solved. In reality the belief that you had a problem has been destroyed.
The student who goes around believing that he has problems, and seeking help from divine Mind to solve them, will find that that attitude may prove a deterrent. From the human standpoint, everything is a problem; from the divine standpoint there are no problems.
To The Watchers
from 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.
