May we begin this day by acknowledging God has made it. Ir is good. We have been given our daily bread as the Lord Prayer informs and let the grace which Mrs. Eddy interprets as bread be with us as we pray. 

Any thoughts about praying on this day will be appreciated. Love this paragraph on page 16. Mrs.Eddy is so clear on how to pray. "A great sacrifice of material things must precede this advanced spiritual understanding. The highest prayer is not one of faith merely; it is demonstration. Such prayer heals sickness, and must destroy sin and death. It distinguishes between Truth that is sinless and and the falsity of sinful sense. 

Please have a great day and enjoy your time in prayer.

I am fairly new to this site. I am on a mini-vacation and with the extra time that this vacation is allowing me, I am setting some hours aside each day for praying for the world. I begin my quiet time developing the feeling of love for each world member and beholding each of us as the child of His, Mind's, care. My heart reaches out and God directs my prayers from there. This is a very satisfying vacation!

I am new here too. I have been active in a website that prays for soldiers and assigns specific people for you to pray for. (they ask for prayer) sometimes you get feedback directly of protection, and it is comforting. But there is something that I think is lacking. We always hear about requests for prayer for the 'innocents', but no one is really bucking to start praying for the perpetrators. (ie insurgents in Iraq) I think the US is a praying country, but only so far. Not willing to pray for 'those who despitefully use you' as Jesus counseled us to do. So I am trying to put my money where my mouth is, and pray for the troublemakers, and also pray that this country be led to see the absolute necessity of praying for its enemies.

Way to go Purrfecta! I try to think along the same lines whenever I hear about a crime against children. The tough thing to do is to pray for the one who "commited" the crime. Way to go for reminding us to cover all bases.
