Morning Prayers

How blessed it is to think of you as “beneath the shadow of a great rock in a weary land,” safe in His strength, building on His foundation, and covered from the devourer by divine protection and affection. Always bear in mind that His presence, power, and peace meet all human needs and
reflect all bliss.

— from Miscellaneous Writings, by Mary Baker Eddy, page 263

Discussion points

28 — WATCH lest the apparent importance of handling and destroying error overshadow your realization, that the way to overcome darkness is to let in the light, or that following the spiritual and scientific sense of man constitutes your real progress, so that you feel you must cover every claim of error every day, in order to protect yourself properly. Such an attitude does not indicate the establishment and development of that trust in one’s spiritual perception, in which one relies on inspiration to unfold what needs to be done each day.

There have been teachers of Christian Science who have prepared long lists of errors for their students to take up each day. But when an error has been seen as nothing, is it necessary for one to continue his effort in that direction, unless, of course, the suggestion of its reality once again encroaches upon thought?

GOLDEN TEXT: Proverbs 10 : 12

“The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.”

Article “One Soul” The 1936 Primary Class by Bicknell Young

He shall preserve your soul: “Our soul is kept from the dominion of sin, the infection of error, the crush of despondency, the puffing up of pride; kept from the world, the flesh and the devil; kept for holier and greater things; kept in the love of God; kept unto the eternal kingdom and glory.”

— Charles Spurgeon Commentary

All evil will be averted from him who has Jehovah for his keeper; therefore, if any so called Evil comes, he may be sure that it is Good with a veil on.


Every treatment we give will go on and on forever.

— from Divinity Course and General Collectanea, (the “Blue Book”), by Mary Baker Eddy, page 208

“An Allegory”, from Miscellaneous Writings by Mary Baker Eddy, page 323

“Thou anointest my head with oil.” May we live in the daily enjoyment of this blessing, receiving a fresh anointing for every day’s duties.

— Charles Spurgeon Commentary for Psalm 23

Let all that now divides us
Remove and pass away,
Like shadows of the morning
Before the blaze of day.
Let all that now unites us
More sweet and lasting prove,
A closer bond of union,
In a blest land of love.

— Hymn 196 from the Christian Science Hymnal
