Daily Watch for the week of June 2nd – June 9th, 2019
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
46 — WATCH lest you retain the old superstition regarding death as a doorway to a better state of being. This error causes people to say of one who has passed on, “He is better off,” and to feel regarding one who is very ill that perhaps death would be a release under the circumstances. This suggestion gives death more power than Life to relieve man of woe.
Graduation from school benefits a pupil because he has done all the work in the lower grade satisfactorily. On page 60 of the Christian Science Journal, Volume 4, Mrs. Eddy writes, “When we have done our work here so well that it needs not to be done over again, the death-change increases all our joys and our means of advancement.”

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.
