Who is the Lord nigh to? Ps 145:18
WATCH PRAYER – Pray all the time. Pray this way: Love, just take me in. Give me one Mind, one consciousness, and make me love my neighbor as myself. All is Love, peace, harmony. Heaven is right here. Love reigns. There is no strife. Peace, be still. Truth has destroyed the error. Love has destroyed all hate. All is Love, peace, and joy. After praying, be willing to be fitted to receive the blessing you ask for.
(Mrs. Eddy said: These ‘watch prayers’ are righteous prayers which are for the purpose of antidoting unrighteous prayers, and are in accord with the statements of Jesus, Mark 13:37 and Luke 12:39. The Lord’s Prayer is a ‘watch prayer’.) Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.56)
In this science of being, man “held dominion over the earth, and every living thing that moveth on the earth “; he knew neither Life nor power outside of Spirit, the governing Principle of the universe and man; and this Truth of all being, namely, that Intelligence is the only Life and Principle of all, brings to light the harmony and immortality of man. Error claims Life in matter, hence the creator a propagating vitality in vegetable and animal; and this error was the original sin, it being a belief of God in matter, or matter without God. This was the Adam, so totally depraved, insomuch as it claimed Life, Intelligence and Truth, that alone was God. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p.239-240)
And God blessed them, and said unto them, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it and have dominion over every living thing that moveth on the earth.” All blessings and power came with the creations of Spirit, and as such they were to multiply and replenish the earth on this basis of being, and subdue it, making matter subservient to Spirit, and all would be harmonious and immortal; in contradistinction to the generations of Adam, or the belief that matter subdues Spirit. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, 1st ed., p.239)
How do we conquer error? 339:31-32
DAILY PRAYER – It shall be the duty of every member of this church to pray each day: “Thy kingdom come;” let the reign of divine Truth, Life, and Love be established in me, and rule out of me all sin; and may Thy Word enrich the affections of all mankind, and govern them! (Eddy, Mary Baker, Manual, p.41)
9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
How do we praise God? Ps 145:3-16
