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)
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)
WATCH – The first thing I do in the morning when I awake is to declare I shall have no other mind before divine Mind and become fully conscious of this and then adhere to it throughout the entire day, and then evil cannot touch me. I have done it but am a poor specimen of preservation. But the greatest miracle of the age is that I am alive. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.6)
WATCH – Christian Scientists must work daily to annul the prayers of the unrighteous, those who unrighteously pray that the Christian Science prayers cannot heal the sick. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.4)
WATCH – take this thought earnestly twice each day:
There is no evil thinking and no evil argument; the lie and liar are a lie, an illusion; there is no such person nor thought. God is all there is. Mary Baker Eddy
(Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.38)
WATCH – Declare daily:
No mesmeric influence can prevent the law of spiritual growth, humility, freedom, health, wealth, and healing from having boundless freedom in your consciousness.
No mesmeric influence can separate you from the infinite Mind and its faculty. Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.37-38)
WATCH – Let your minds go out every two hours:
All is peace, goodwill, Love, etc.
Say nothing of error.
Confine your thoughts to the right side. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.2)
On October 19, 1892 Mrs. Eddy gave two of her students, a “charge which is worthy of the attention of all students, and which, if followed, will make daily demonstrators out of those who heed it, thus sparing them the folly of functioning under the human mind, while imagining that they are reflecting God:
“The first thing in the morning call on God to deliver you from temptation and help you to be awake. Then do your chores, not as a dreamy hashish eater, but with a clear sense of what to do and just how to do it. Then sit down and first get yourself into consciousness of your power with God, and then take up the outside watch. Sit until this is clear if it takes two hours.” Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Five Hundred Watching Points, p. 93, #195)
