Daily Watch for the week of January 27th – February 3rd, 2019
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
457 — WATCH that you be like Gideon with his band, who blew the trumpet before he had his struggle with error — before the manifestation of his victory appeared. When he directed his band to blow the trumpet, that was the indication from the metaphysical standpoint that the battle was already won, which is the position one must always take in demonstration.
Once our Leader declared, “I have always known that victory is as certain now as it will be a century hence.” In all we do we must start with the realization of a completed demonstration. Miscellany, 242, shows this point.
If the Bible statement is true, “Before they call I will answer,” then the solution for each problem must be at hand before the problem comes, and we must realize this fact.
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.
