Daily watch for the week of January 17th-24th
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
273 — WATCH that you understand what Mrs. Eddy meant when she said (Mis. 210), “. . . error, when found out, is two-thirds destroyed, and the remaining third kills itself.”
Once Mrs. Eddy said, “Could you, my dear ones, but see the grandeur of your outlook, the sublimity of your hope, and the infinite capacity of your being, you would do what? Let error kill itself. It comes to you for life and you give it the only life it has—in belief.”
The deduction is that error is uncovered or found out, only when you see that you have given it all the life it has in belief. When you see this, at once you withdraw such support, and thus the error is two-thirds destroyed. Then the remaining third, which is the manifestation, having no support, kills itself.
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.
