Things to handle daily

From Watches, Prayers, and Arguments given by
(Bold emphasis added)


Take four hours each day for your reading, prayer and meditation alone with God. (page 81)

Impersonal evil cannot use me as an avenue through which to express any discord; there is no evil. This hourly declaration will keep me invulnerable from error. (page 29 & 38)

You cannot make me believe that I cannot heal; nor can you prevent me from healing. (Three times a day, if not more.) (page 30)

Let your minds go out every two hours: All is peace, good will, Love, etc. Say nothing of error. Confine your thoughts to the right side. (page 30)

Declare daily: No mesmeric influence can prevent the law of spiritual growth, understanding, development, expression, discernment, 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. (page 34)

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. (page 34 & 91)

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. (page 34)

Take this up in every watch: Sight, hearing, memory are never lost. Finger joints are natural.

(page 37)

Realize for yourself and all each day, clear and strong, that the Christ, Truth, does not merely open “the windows of heaven” for us, or promise us heaven, but the knowledge of the Christ in Christian Science is heaven here and now. This knowledge of Truth, as it is taught in Science, is heaven’s open door for all. (page 37)

Make supplication to God daily, that you may be delivered from all beliefs of sin or of sickness, and after doing this, then turn to, and demand of, yourself to realize their unreality, and recognize your power over the temptation to yield to any such an illusion. (page 38)

Students do not pray enough. They should go by themselves at least three times a day to pray. Their prayers should consist of much divine thanks, more realization of the perfect, as well as the denial of error. There is too much denial of error and too little realization of the perfect. (page 38)

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 the evil cannot touch me. (page 39)

When you lie down to sleep, know that you have self-control, and that the everlasting arms are about you, and nothing can intrude into your quiet sanctuary — your peace and rest. (page 42)

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 a consciousness of your power with God, and then take up the outside watch. Sit until this is clear, — if two hours. (page 42)

I want you to take up the Watch every two hours, as long as you live, or until you can make the right side real to your consciousness. (page 45)

Pray all the time. Pray this way: Love, just take me in. Give me one Mind, one consciousness, 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. (page 45)

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. (page 46)

Each day commit yourself to the care of our one Parent; trust Him, turn to Him in all your ways for light to direct your footsteps, and wisdom to enable you to separate the tares from the wheat — so that you can judge well between the human or the evil “suggestions” and the good or divine impulse. (page 47)

Repeat the following affirmations silently several times each day, not with strained anxiety to get something out of them, but trying calmly 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. (page 48)

Realize for yourself daily, more than once, that the fields are already white with harvest; that “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need,” the need of work as well as any other; that Mind is active, and you reflect the divine activity; that the true source of supply supplies every need; that there is plenty of work for all; that yours belongs to you, no one else can do it, and it comes to you direct, and the supply is abundant, and you know all the time that this is so. Never let a sense of lack of anything stay a moment with you; it is rank error, and breeds all sorts of difficulties. Daily know, that mental malpractice cannot cause Christian Scientists or their patients to have a return of old beliefs, as this is the argument sent out; also, that there is no reversal of the treatment of Christian Science. (page 50)

Pray daily, twice at least, to divine Love to give you success. Then realize for yourself that 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. (page 52)

Be watchful, and every day ask Love to keep you from temptation and give you daily bread

— grace to know and do God’s work. (page 54)

Take up each day, no fear; all is Love. Mind controls all. No malicious mesmerism to hinder (your) thoughts. All is light and clearness. (page 56)

Hold the line every day: no fear; God governs all. No M.A.M. to feel or be felt. Mind controls all. (page 57)

Have…students…take up every day…work mental, to sustain the Cause and do their duty to their Leader and Mother. (page 59)

Take up again for yourself every day, Love is All. Truth reigns. There is no lie and nothing to make a lie. No M.A.M. to darken thought. Love reigns and rules this, and every hour. Truth declared heals. No reversal. God is All. “Commit thy ways unto Him and He shall bring it to pass.” (page 64)

Pray once every day for the principal editors of the principal periodicals in your city, and for the clergymen in your pulpits. The lying influences, sent forth to deceive our clergymen and our pressmen, would, “if possible, deceive the very elect.” This must be met with a counteracting influence through prayer. Let Truth be heard above error, and God will bless your efforts. Jesus saith, “All things are possible to him who believeth.” (page 69)

Include this in all your prayers: All the individuals in this house can, and do, help themselves by prayer. God helps them. His promise is fulfilled: Seek and ye shall find. “Because he has put his trust in Me, therefore have I delivered him.” (page 73)

It is a shield to remind yourself daily, that God is the only Law-maker for man, morally, spiritually, and physically. (page 91)

Every day — every hour — your work increases in effectiveness and power. (page 91)

Christian Scientists shall daily accentuate God’s law, in knowing that it is supreme, and that obedience thereto brings immediate and permanent health, happiness, and success. (page 92)

Neither mesmerism, hypnotism, theosophy, esoteric magic, nor wicked mental or audible arguments, can affect me. God governs me. Justice, Truth, Love govern us, and nothing else can, or does, affect us in the least. Thrice each day, from one half to one hour. Then have faith in God. Know, that faith as a grain of mustard seed can remove mountains, and have no faith in evil. Know, that it cannot do anything, that it is nothing. Know, that God is All. The wrath of man shall praise Thee, and the remainder of wrath shalt Thou restrain. All things work together for good to them that love God. See I Thess. 5. (page 94)

Daily Mental Invocation: Divine Love, give me grace, meekness, understanding and wisdom for each hour of this day. (page 112)

The evil is at hand. God is All. Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike good. No one can darken or depress your thought, nor take from you a clear consciousness of your Leader and her place, nor can you be made sinful. Argue this clearly every day. (page 122)

In Truth all is right; there is no burden; there is no evil; there is no malice, hatred, directed against the Truth. Handle this every day. Rise up. Do your work faithfully, and God will give you a sure reward. (page 123)

Let your prayer be daily: reveal to me, Oh God, my secret faults, every error, every sin. Earnestly desire to know thyself, to have thy heart searched, to let thyself be humbled, and the man of God stand revealed. Never for one instant say, “Thank God, I am not as other men.” There is no I. If you are a personality, you are as other men; but if you are the idea of God, there is but one I, God. (page 124)

Declare daily, “I am healed, and scientifically healed.” Christian Science is the victor, and vanquishment is unknown to omnipotent Truth. I cannot be grieved or disappointed, since God is All, and my life is hid with Christ in God. There is nothing lost. Mental malpractice cannot reverse my declarations, cannot touch my conscious or unconscious thought, for there are not minds many. There is only one Mind, divine Mind. (page 125)

Declare daily, that no hard, wicked, irreligious or anti-Christian thoughts can touch us from any mortal mind. There is no mortal mind, no evil. There is no decay, nor death, to the nerves, no destruction to the fluids, nor death to the secretions. (page 125)

Know daily, there are no accidents, no disease, no old age, and no death. (page 140)

Know every day, that the world is ready for Christian Science. (page 145)

Mental malpractice must be met daily by all the students; met by your mental protest that breaks the so-called law of a lie, or you are liable to be affected by this lie, all unconsciously. Dear one, remember this. (page 149)

Take time each day to say: “What is the most powerful thing in the world? It is God saying, ‘I AM’ in His own creation.” (page 156)
