Daily Watch for the week of February 7th – February 14th, 2016
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
427 — WATCH lest you believe that you have fulfilled the demand of God, when you declare an error to be nothing; you must demonstrate it to be nothing, and you do this only when you take the evidence which supports it and dissipate it through the power of Soul.
In this country a man can go to court and attempt to victimize you fraudulently. You know his claim to be false, yet you must go to court and bring evidence to prove it to be so. In Christian Science we learn that animal magnetism is nothing, that it is nothing to fear, and that it can do nothing. Every one of its claims are false. Yet we are under the necessity to take these claims and dispute them conscientiously and faithfully, until they are all detected and silenced. It is necessary, in fulfilling this obligation, to hold in mind always the fact that it is nothing.
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.
