From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
486 — WATCH that you remember that when one is under mesmerism, he has no control of his speech or action. A deep insight into Mrs. Eddy’s use of the word sin, defines it as yielding to the mesmerism which suggests life, intelligence and existence separate from God. The Bible declares that we are the servants of the one we obey and accept as our master. One value of this knowledge is, that it shows that, when one is functioning under the mesmerism of mortal belief, it is a futile thing for him to try to control his speech and action. If he tries to do so, he will fail. Only as one handles the belief of mesmerism and acknowledges the government of divine Mind, can he speak and act in harmony with divine law. Another value is, that it causes us to impersonalize the speech and action of others. We never personalize the talk of a ventriloquist’s dummy.

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.
