Scriptural Selection

Prayer

Silent prayer followed by the audible repetition of the Lord’s Prayer with its spiritual interpretation by Mary Baker Eddy
Our Father which art in heaven,
    Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious,
Hallowed be Thy name.
    Adorable One.
Thy kingdom come.
    Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present.
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
    Enable us to know, – as in heaven, so on earth, – God is omnipotent, supreme.
Give us this day our daily bread;
    Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections;
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
    And Love is reflected in love;
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil;
    And God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
    For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

From Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p.16, line 26

8 Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.

11. . . I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the Lord.

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

Scientific Statement of Being

There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual.
From Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p.468, line 9

Correlative Scripture

I John 3:1–3
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
