Daily Watch for the week of February 24th – March 3rd, 2019
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
470 — WATCH and remember that, if you do not handle error in the first instance, it will handle you in the second, as the textbook says. This were no reason for discouragement, but a plea for watchfulness. The struggle to control evil thoughts is not a fight as mortal mind conceives of a fight; it is the effort to realize their nothingness as well as God’s power to dislodge them. It is the endeavor to realize your capacity to reflect God’s thoughts only.
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.
