Daily Watch for the week of September 16th – September 23rd, 2018

From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter

476 — WATCH that you hold a right concept of what denials accomplish in Christian Science. Once a student had a pain. He denied it, and prayed to be shown where he had erred. He asked God to teach him the lesson he needed to learn; but the pain persisted. Finally he prayed, “Oh God, rock me to sleep in Your arms.” At once the pain disappeared.

He learned that our work with error, or our denials, do not heal. The pain left when he sought a positive sense of good in which the error was submerged, as it were. This is why Mrs. Eddy once said, “Never leave a treatment until consciousness is baptized in Love.”

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.
