Night Prayer – 15 February 2019

Hymn (by Joseph McTaggart)

like a gentle spinning wheel,
Inside my Master’s room,
Gratitude and harmony,
do strain around the loom.

Love for Man with every turn,
Is felt by bride and groom,
and as the wheel does spin its yarn,
sit maidens in their bloom.

Never stopping ever weaving,
The loving wheel goes round,
Quilting good for every hour,
with blessings most profound,

Autumn winds and vanities.
Drown out many sounds.
Creeping maids and innocence.
Bring tears of age and frown,

the pedalled wheel continues on
Its sound is ever present,
exchanging gloom for happy days,
laments ere do lessen.

 

“In order to pray aright, we must enter into the closet and shut the door. We must close the lips and silence the material senses. In the quiet sanctuary of earnest longings, we must deny sin and plead God’s allness.” Science and Health

Psalm 91.

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High.

will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

Father Mother, encompassing all.

2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.”

Love, completeness

3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler

and from the deadly pestilence.

Love yearns for purity of thought

4 He will cover you with his pinions,

and under his wings you will find refuge;

his jfaithfulness is a shield and buckler.

Love´s Dwelling

5 You will not fear the terror of the night,

nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,

nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

There is none like you in whom I have my being

7 A thousand may fall at your side,

ten thousand at your right hand,

but it will not come near you.

Infinite, without number

8 You will only look with your eyes

and see the recompense of the wicked.

Incorporeal

9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place

the Most High, who is my refuge.

Our Home

10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,

no plague come near your tent.

Structure of Truth and Love

11 For he will command his angels concerning you

to guard you in all your ways.

Our Provider

12 On their hands they will bear you up,

lest you strike your foot against a stone.

Our Protection

13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;

the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

Defender of Spiritual Truth.

14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;

I will protect him, because he knows my name.

Cause and Creator

15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble;

I will rescue him and honor him.

Reflecting Love

16 With long life I will satisfy him

and show him my salvation.”

Immortal Harmonious Love.

Scientific Translation the Hail Mary (Ave Maria) Prayer, written by me:

Hail Father Mother,
In Fullness,
Ever With Us

Ever Blessing Man
with the Christ
Ever Present

Tender and Strong
With Grace for Today
Infinite Love and Power

Here now

Taken from Science and health with Key to the Scriptures 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.

The definition of Trinity (Glory be etc…prayer) from Judge Hanna, CS journal July 1915.

“In response to a request, it was the writer’s privilege to receive from Mrs. Eddy a definition of the Trinity which has never been published in the exact words in which this one is couched. Feeling that it will be helpful in connection with the purpose of this article, this definition is here given: “Father is man’s divine Principle, Love. Son is God’s man —His image or spiritual likeness. Holy Ghost is Divine Science, the Messiah or Comforter. Jesus in the flesh was the prophet or wayshower to Life, Truth, and Love, and out of the flesh Jesus was the Christ, the spiritual idea, or image and likeness of God.” ”
