Prelude on Hymn 73 – Rashann Allwood
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.
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.

. . . Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!
Psalms 92:1–4 (to ;), 13; 30:2, 4, 7 (to ;), 12;
92:1 It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night,
3 On an instrument of ten strings, On the lute, And on the harp, With harmonious sound.
4 For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
13 Those who are planted in the house of the Lord Shall flourish in the courts of our God
30:2 O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me.
4 Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
7 Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong;
12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
26:3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth.
7 That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works.

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
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.
