Daily Watch for Week July 15th – July 22nd, 2018
From 500 Watching Points by Gilbert Carpenter
429 — WATCH lest you run your thought ragged with a frenzied mental effort, forgetting that the purpose of all our work is to refresh our heart with brighter, with spiritual views, as the textbook says. Expectant faith based on understanding, not depressing arguments and ground-out assertions, accomplishes all good. In Science we heal and receive good because we expect to. The influence of good goes forth from us because we expect it to.
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.
