Daily Watch for the week of June 5th – June 12th, 2016
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
388 — WATCH lest you be upset by criticism, or set up by praise. Most criticism is unjust, and most praise is undeserved. If you are popular with God, you will probably be unpopular with man. Jesus was popular with man when he made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem; but as he rose higher, his followers fell away. You cannot obey God without sooner or later offending mortal mind. Every student must learn to walk calmly on midst the pleasant warmth of popularity or the chilling wind of its opposite.
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.
