A Prayer For This Week (October 21 - 27, 2019)

By Prayerful Living


Thank You God, for my growing understanding of Your allness and of Life eternal.
Divine Love, You as Mother dispel my fear and lead me away from sin.
Divine Truth, You release my thought from the belief of life as existing in matter.
The tenacity of error does not hold me in bondage to the belief in death.
The bounds of a mortal life span do not define or limit my life.
I am free from the sepulcher of materiality - not entombed in its seeming limitations.
Divine Presence, I am spiritually awakened.
I know that death is no factor or steppingstone in this growth spiritward.
I embody qualities of loving-kindness, purity, integrity, sincerity, fearlessness,
joy, and intelligence.
I know these spiritual attributes cannot be restricted to human personality,
and in demonstrating that which is real, I put on immortality.
With the help of Your angel messengers, the stone of false mortal sense is rolled away
and am roused to the true and imperishable identity as Your divine, spiritual reflection.
Glory be to You, Father God. Your power and goodness are manifested.
And so it is, Amen.

A Prayer For This Week (October 14 - 20, 2019)

By Prayerful Living


Thank you, God. Through Your incalculable love, illustrated by Christ Jesus,
 I celebrate my sense of at-one-ness with You.
I refuse to be identified with all that is unlike You, ever-present Spirit.
I have been touched by the redeeming action of Your dear Christ,
the true idea voicing good, and recognize my relationship to You, divine Love.
Guided by immutable Truth, I stand up to the suggestions of error.
I find release from the bondage of disease and sin and am healed.
Father-Mother God, my relationship to You is restored in my heart.
I reside in Your divine Presence.
I emulate Jesus’ example to love all as You and he have loved us.
“Love one another” is my anthem. I am blessed and strive to bless others.
And so it is, Amen.

Treatment ideas for October 12, 2019

By Julio C. Rivas, CS

So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. ... 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! -- KJ, II Cor. 5: 16, 17

"As a drop of water is one with the ocean ... even so God and man, Father and son, are one in being." -- Eddy

Treatment/Healing: Love-Life's hegemony declares that we are sown into its fabric of eternal perfection. This Christly cognition is washing away a finite, sin-sickness-ladened vew of existence. Our eternal excellence (although it seems new and distant to human belief) is overlording our quotidian experience.

A Prayer For This Week (October 7 - 13, 2019)

By Prayerful Living


Father-Mother God, Your reality is all the is real.
Help me to not be deceived by mortal mind, and false belief,
but to know and understand Your Truth, divine Presence.
Help me to not be deceived by false gods, divine Spirit,
that I shall never fall into the sinful snares of error.
My spiritual selfhood is diseaseless, sinless, ageless, fetterless, free from everything unlike good.
Divine Love, help me to not be deceived by sickness and fear.
I can never be separated from You, Father-Mother God. You are closer than the air I breathe.
I am alert, and I am awake.  I am healed by yielding to Your Truth.
Divine Life, help me to not be deceived by the belief of death.
You, God, are Life eternal. Through Christ’s example, I conquer the claims of mortality.
Thank You, Father, for your ever-presence, guarding, guiding, cherishing Your beloved children.
And so it is, Amen.
