Thou infinite Life, Thou infinite strength, Thou art here. You are
strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. You are strength-
ened with might by His spirit in the inner man. Flow through me,
spirit of divine Love, to do this healing. Divine Love flows every-
where and is reflected through you as well as through the most
advanced Scientist. Look up and feel its beams of warmth and live
in it.    Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.62)

I would ask that all Christians unite in prayer for the cessation of
sin, – the oppression of the weak, – the accession of power at the
sacrifice of individual rights; and especially that divine Love shield
the innocent from the wrath of the guilty, and cause it to praise Love.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.62)

The need of divine wisdom and Love – Christ’s assurance of prayer
answered – and the absolute Science of God’s Allness, move the
Christian Scientist to pray for the peace, prosperity, and brotherhood
of all nations and peoples. No will-power is used in the Scientist’s
prayer, since human will must be lost in the Divine, for prayer to be
efficacious. In the words of Zechariah, ‘Not by might, nor by power,
but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.’    Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.62)

He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John xiv. 12. – 14

     The sweet, sacred sense and permanence of man’s unity with his Maker, in Science, illumines our present existence with the ever-presence and power of God, good. It opens wide the portals of salvation from sin, sickness, and death. When the Life that is God, good, shall appear, “we shall be like Him;” we shall do the works of Christ, and, in the words of David, “the stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner,” because the “I” does go unto the Father, the ego does arise to spiritual recognition of being, and is exalted, —  not through death, but Life, God understood. (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.196:17-27)

He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John xiv. 12. – 13

     The “I” will go to the Father when meekness, purity, and love, informed by divine Science, the Comforter, lead to the one God: then the ego is found not in matter but in Mind, for there is but one God, one Mind; and man will then claim no mind apart from God. Idolatry, the supposition of the existence of many minds and more than one God, has repeated itself in all manner of subtleties through the entire centuries, saying as in the beginning, “Believe in me, and I will make you as gods;” that is, I will give you a separate mind from God (good), named evil; and this so-called mind shall open your eyes and make you know evil, and thus become material, sensual, evil. But bear in mind that a serpent said that; therefore that saying came not from Mind, good, or Truth. God was not the author of it; hence the words of our Master: “He is a liar, and the father of it;” also, the character of the votaries to “other gods” which sprung from it.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.195:31-16)
