Daily Watch for the week of May 20th – May 27th, 2018
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
242 — WATCH that you maintain the firm realization and conviction that the devil flees when you resist him. Error is never more than suggestion, and seems to prevail only because it is not resisted and opposed promptly and persistently. Error cannot stand before right resistance. Often, however, one fancies that he is resisting the devil, or evil, when he is resisting an effect instead of a cause, as if one could change a moving picture by doing something to it at the screen.
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.
