Daily Watch for the week of February 4th – February 11th, 2018
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
458 — WATCH that you handle the belief of the past by making it a medium for blessing you. The past is only our present consciousness of it. If we correct that, by spiritualizing our thought in regard to it, it becomes a medium to bless us, in the sense that we realize that it all worked together to bring us a higher sense of good. Mrs. Eddy once said, “There is no discordant past, no clouded present, and no dreaded future.” Finally we must come to the realization that none of the experiences in our past were real except those that were good, in accordance with Mrs. Eddy’s own statement, “We understand as Christian Scientists that our varied experiences are things of the past; not so the marvelous sense of God’s presence resulting therefrom!”
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.
