Pray for the prosperity of our country, and for her victory under arms; that justice, mercy, and peace continue to characterize her government, and that they shall rule all nations. Pray that the divine presence may still guide and bless our chief magistrate, those associated with his executive trust, and our national judiciary; give to our congress wisdom, and uphold our nation with the right arm of His righteousness.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Christian Science Versus Pantheism, p.14:11)

Cultivate the habit of trust by daily repeating, ‘I am led by the spirit of infinite wisdom. I consecrate my will, my judgment, my desire, and all my faculty to the direction of the all-wise One. I shall hear. I shall know. I shall do right.’ Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.116)

Watch that M.A.M. does not dull your thought to the clear Word of God. I gave so much to your class – my last class – and so little has been done with it. Why? Because sleep overcomes the thought. Students must be watchers against the ‘thief that cometh in the night’.   Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.196)

Once one of Mrs. Eddy’s splendid students was tempted to run away from Boston, because he felt he was being made sick by the envy and malpractice directed at him.  She wrote: “The belief that scares you is your own hand uplifted against yourself.  Put it down.  Neither you nor she can fight against Truth, the Truth that good is your life, and doing good you sustain it; but fearing evil, you lose it. Stay in Boston and vicinity always if you please.  I know you can master it, the lie, there as well as elsewhere.  To run before a lie is to accept its terms.  This works like running before the enemy in battle.  You will be followed, pursued, till you face about, trust in God  and stand on Spirit, denying and facing and fighting all the claims of matter and mortal mind, both one.”   Mary Baker Eddy   (Carpenter, Gilbert Jr., 500 Watching Points, #272)

Each day I pray for the pacification of all national difficulties, for the brotherhood of man, for the end of idolatry and infidelity, and for the growth and establishment of Christian religion — Christ’s Christianity. I also have faith that my prayer availeth, and that He who is overturning will overturn until He whose right it is shall reign. Each day I pray: “God bless my enemies; make them Thy friends; give them to know the joy and the peace of love.”  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p.220:14-23)
