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

Isaiah 2:5 come

RESPONSIVE READING

Ephesians 4:7 unto, 13, 17, 18, 20–245:1, 8

4:7 . . . unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

20 But ye have not so learned Christ;

21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:

22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

Hymn 589: Through pure love, God has commanded

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.

Benediction
