Our greatest gift....
via The Christian Science Sentinel

Some of our members have shared here, how they are praying for our country at this time.

From V:

"I am praying about the whole business of Brexit and working on the Truth of there being only one Mind. With so much division only God can know ..."

From A:

"I have been reading and rereading this article and finding it so helpful...https://sentinel.christianscience.com/web-originals/2016/the-greatest-gift

From J:

"As the UK is presently facing immense challenges of division and confusion. I was alerted that,  like the Shunammite woman,  who said to Elisha when her son’s health presented a fatal picture,  “It is well”   so I  too, needed to pray more vigorously.    

I’ve now pinned bits of paper around our home.   Every time I open the fridge door or sit at my desk these statements catch my attention and they always lift my thought.

With man this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.    (Matt 19:26)

The Lord is able to give thee much more than this.   (II Chron 25:9)

...for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it. (Acts 5: 38,39)  "


From P

"This morning after hearing the news about further developments in Brexit I went in quiet prayer to The Lord's Prayer.  Mary Baker Eddy, on page 14, line 22, of Science & Health, with Key to the Scriptures, writes "The Lord's Prayer is the prayer of Soul, not of material sense." I so needed that prayer of Soul in that moment. The opening line with Mrs Eddy's interpretation allowed me to embrace everyone in my prayer - individuals in parliament having to make decisions, all of us trying to understand, owners of businesses in the country fearful of their livelihoods, the confusion in the wider communities - everyone was just embraced under those wonderful words... "Our Father..."  I prayed with that prayer for some time and it lifted all anxiety from me...

The whole prayer with the spiritual interpretation can be found on page 16, line 24 of Science & Health by Mary Baker Eddy."


From N:

"I love Mrs Eddy's Hymn, 'Christmas Morn'....(page 23, Christian Science Hymnal)

The first line of verse 4, 'Thou gentle beam of living love', is so special. Sunbeams don't have to try to be, they just are, and we as gentle beams of living love, don't have to try to be Love we just are, always and forever!

No hurrying, no tension and no stress, this is what we are sending out into the world.

How great is that?"
