No student of Christian Science shall occupy a position of trust or confidence in this Cause who does not daily declare the truth at least three times in his prayers for the well-being of his Leader, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science., the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy   Mary Baker Eddy

     The rules of this house do not permit of evil being spoken, thought or heard.  Love rules this and every hour.   Malicious animal magnetism is without power, powerless.  Darkness is nothing.  Mind is All, God is All and His voice is heard in all places.  God judges and His judgement is sound and righteous.  Know this now  and every hour.  No theosophy, no malicious animal magnetism to lie or hear a lie.  God reigns and loveth whom He chasteneth.  No work is done until I say it is and no student will forsake his post in any moment.  God is Love, Love is All.  Truth reigns.   Mary Baker Eddy

WATCH – Mother says take up each day, no fear, all is love.  Mind controls all.  No malicious mesmerism to hinder his thoughts.  All is light and clearness.  Do not name ________ or the others by name.   Mary Baker Eddy

Here let me give what I understand to be the spiritual sense of the Lords Prayer:

Our Father which art in heaven,

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious,

Hallowed be Thy name.

Adorable One.

Thy kingdom come.

Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present.

Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Enable us to know, — as in heaven, so on earth, — God is omnipotent, supreme.

Give us this day our daily bread;

Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections;

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And Love is reflected in love;

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil;

And God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science and Health, With Key To The Scriptures, p.16:24-15



WATCH – Evil is not power, not mind, and nobody has any power to accomplish evil of any sort (here stop and dwell on this argument till you realize this truth).  Then declare that Love is All and in all, in every thought, and all power is in Love.  There is no other power.  Evil is powerless; there is no evil.  Hypnotism, theosophy, and esoteric magic have no power to do evil and cannot reverse Truth – but Life, Truth, Love have reversed, and they have destroyed all evil.  There are no false suggestions, lying arguments or hatred – these are illusions.  They do not exist.  I have no fear of them.  I am not controlled by them.  Divine Love is supreme and controls all I think, say or do.  Pray daily twice at least to divine Love and Truth and action on your part (for Truth does not work for you unless you work) will give you the victory.  Guard reversal.  There is no law of hypnotism to reverse God’s law.  Truth is unchangeable and cannot be reversed. Mary Baker Eddy

For many years I have prayed daily that there be no more war, no more barbarous slaughtering of our fellow-beings; prayed that all the peoples on earth and the islands of the sea have one God, one Mind; love God supremely, and love their neighbor as themselves.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, 286:2-7)
