WATCH – Repeat the following affirmations silently several times each day, not with strained anxiety to get something out of them, but trying to realize the meaning of the words:

     God is All; there is no evil.

     All is harmony; there is no discord.

     All is health; there is no sickness.

     All is Spirit; there is no matter.  

     All is joy; there is no sorrow.

     All is Truth; there is no falsehood.

     All is faith; there is no fear.

     All is Life; there is no death.

     All is Love; there is no hate.   Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.11)

One day Mrs. Eddy said to a student, “Are you working?”  He began to tell of his hours of study and work.  She said, “When you see old age, do you declare that Life is eternal activity, beauty and joy?  When you see the leaves falling and hear the wind blow, do you declare that there is no change, decay or cold?  When you see deformity and disease, do you declare that man is made in the image and likeness of God?” 

     The student answered, “Mrs. Eddy, I am not working.”   Mary Baker Eddy

One thing I have greatly desired, and again earnestly request, namely, that Christian Scientists, here and elsewhere, pray daily for themselves; not verbally, nor on bended knee, but mentally, meekly, and importunately.  When a hungry heart petitions the divine Father-Mother God for bread, it is not given a stone, – but more grace, obedience, and love.  If this heart, humble and trustful, faithfully asks divine Love to feed it with the bread of heaven, health, holiness, it will be conformed to a fitness to receive the answer to its desire; then will flow into it the “river of His pleasure,” the tributary of divine Love, and great growth in Christian Science will follow, – even that joy which finds one’s own in another’s good.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, 127:7-19)

WATCH – Work every day to know that the belief of impossibility has no power over you.  Know that it cannot possibly affect you in any way, and can never for an instant hinder your demonstration, whether you are working for health, peace, joy, or any mental quality, thing or experience.  Know that you are conscious of the possibility and realization of all that is good and true.   Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Watches, Prayers and Arguments, p.10)

We must receive the divine Principle in the understanding, and live it in daily life; and unless we so do, we can no more demonstrate Science, than we can teach and illustrate geometry by calling a curve a straight line or a straight line a sphere.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Science & Health, With Key To The Scriptures, 283:27-31)

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)
