Daily Watch for the week of August 25th – September 1st, 2019
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
495 — WATCH that you remember the rule, “If you take error seriously, it will take you seriously,” using against you the very weapon you give it. Error is only a belief, and one receives from it exactly what one puts into it. Let us put into it the realization of its nothingness and the allness of good, as well as the conviction that there is nothing in us to respond to it, to believe in it or to fear it. Neither can we be made to forget or to neglect the necessity for standing up to it and meeting it under all circumstances.
Error cannot be serious unless you make it serious. So keep your grin ahead of your groan. Mrs. Eddy once said, “Some of you are taking life too seriously. A sense of humor is a saving grace.”

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.
