"Daily Prayer"

How many of us, seeing the world's distress and the need of help for millions of troubled people, yearn to do something to lighten the burden! What comfort, then, to realize that the instructions given by our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, show the way in which much may be done to help heal the hurts of all who seem to be bearing heavy burdens! Right where we are at this very moment we may help to bring the peace on earth which all right-thinking individuals long to see made manifest. In the Manual of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, Mrs. Eddy has given us this "Daily Prayer" (Art. VIII, Sect. 4): "It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to pray each day: "Thy kingdom come;' let the reign of divine Truth, Life, and Love be established in me, and rule out of me all sin; and may Thy Word enrich the affections of all mankind, and govern them!"

As Christian Scientists all over the world joyfully and gratefully accept this duty and ponder the words of this beautiful prayer each day, what a force for good is thus provided! First of all, we are lovingly admonished to affirm the ever-presence of God's kingdom. His work is done. His perfect, spiritual creation, including the real, man, is finished, and remains forever perfect and entire. The spiritual understanding of the presence of God's eternal kingdom pierces the mists of material sense which would try to hide the truth from our recognition.
