  1. Thank you Evan, for this healing prayer! I especially appreciate the inspired thought "Divine Love can conquer the hate. It is the destiny of selfishness to yield...."

    I have been praying for Syria throughout the day and am grateful for your sharings here!!

  2. Thank you for sharing these prayers. Love & peace to all

  3. Evan, Thank you for your much needed prayer for Syria

  4. 4th of July, the US celebrates freedom, but freedom needs to be protected. Cruel tyranny and oppression (although short lived) can delay the progress of any land. Japan, Germany, Spain, Syria, are just some of the many lands that suffered because of greed for power.
    Only recognizing God as All powerful a nation can progress.
    "For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us" Isaiah 33:22
    El 4 de julio, los EE.UU. celebra la libertad, pero la libertad necesita ser protegida. La tiranía cruel y la opresión (aunque de corta duración) pueden retrasar el progreso de cualquier país. Japón, Alemania, España, Siria, son sólo algunos de los muchos países que han sufrido a causa de la codicia por el poder.
    Sólo reconociendo a Dios como Todopoderoso puede progresar una nación.
    " Porque el SEÑOR es nuestro juez, El SEÑOR es nuestro legislador, El SEÑOR es nuestro rey; El nos salvará. " Isaías 33:22

  5. That is beautiful Evan. Thankyou. This 'Lift' will really make a difference for Syria.

  6. Thanks Evan for your special message for Syria on your Independence Day. I love Mrs Eddy's message taken from Paul's writings;"Citizens of the world accept the "glorious liberty of the children of God." and be free! This is your divine right." S&H 227:24-26 By accepting our God- given freedom ourselves we are helping others to find their freedom. Happy Independence Day! Ann K London England.

  7. Dear Evan, Many thanks for your daily lift today. You always give us much food for thought.
    I often turn to hymn 179 in the Christian Science Hymnal where it begins with the words, "Love one another,-word of revelation;" and ends with "Love, Love alone is power.
    My Best Wishes to you all in the States for 4th July.

  8. Thank you Evan. This is just what I needed to strengthen my own prayers for these dear people

  9. What a beautiful prayer, dear Evan. Thank you for bringing such clarity to a situation clouded by self-righteousness. Divine Love is the answer, has the answer, and everyone can find God's love and the peace that it brings through heartfelt prayer, just like the one that you have given us today. The world is uplifted.

  10. So true!

  11. Many thanks Evan for this great reminder. Yes. "Divine Love [the only true power] can conquer the hate...and [all mankind] live in peace!" "Love now is dawning over every nation;/ Showing true brotherhood, publishing salvation,/ Love bids all discord cease./ Conquering hate, enthroning peace,/ Love, Love alone is power." (Christian Science Hymnal #179).

  12. T hank you, yes God is all powerful and we can know that He governs all people and nations and we can all be free..

  13. Thank you Evan for this powerful Lift which encourages us to unite in prayer for our brothers and sisters in Syria.
    Yes indeed God is supreme .ALMIGHTY, OMNIPOTENT !

  14. I am appreciating the daily lift more and more- opening my eyes to the all-powerful Good. Thank you for all the work that goes into it..claire London

  15. Thanks for the grear lift. This is something we can all do.

  16. Thank you, Evan, for "Prayer for Syria...violence and war...the Lord...will save us...a higher power in this world...God the supreme power over all...with the final say...for the common good of the people...cruel tyranny and oppression...doomed...not the people..." Your healing Lift has alerted me to hold in consciousness God's sovereignty, instead of allowing the "news of the day" to be engraved in thought. Whether in "the fight" or an onlooker, none of us is helpless. "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8) Thanks again, Evan, this call to prayer.

  17. Again, listen. Give many thanks. He has spoken. "The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want." "and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever." There is nothing more needed. Forever spacious. Completely furnished. Comfortable, always. This is all, "for gratitude is riches." Thank you, Evan for your foundational prayer, today.

  18. Oneness and Allness: it is so freeing to know that "as in Heaven, so on Earth" - what is true for us is true for all ... heal "ourselves" of the belief of mortality, and we free our "whole consciousness". It worked for the Berlin wall ... it only takes "One".

  19. Beautiful Evan!!! Thank you so much for your uplifting prayer. Happy Fourth!!!

  20. For all belive in one God, he save all nation either.

  21. Thank you for this call to be alert to what we are taking in and to remind us that we must pray for the world...

  22. Thanks a lot Evan!

  23. So beautiful. Thank you dearly. And for music too!

  24. What an inspiring and uplifting message, thanks so much. As we celebrate our independance this day, I pray for the independence of all mankind.

  25. Orar por Siria, naturalmente orar para que no haya tiranías los hechos nos demuestran que las tiranías caen no sin un gran esfuerzo de los que amamos el derecho de ser libres, pero también como un hecho consumado de que no pueden existir por mucho tiempo, la historia así lo cuenta.
    El ser libres es un derecho inalienable inherente a todo ser, Jesús fue libre porque así lo eligió cuando fue tentado, nada de que le fue ofrecido por el error Él aceptó, eligió lo espirituales y fue servido por los ángeles que alimentaron al Ser espiritual.
    Cada uno de nosotros puede hacer lo mismo negarnos a aceptar la creencia de que somos materiales y que el error nos puede seducir a bregar por bienes mmateriales en lugar de defender nuestra inmarsecible herencia la espiritual.
    Siempre recuerdo un Artículo de Natan Talbot publicado en el Heraldo, el decía: que tenemos libertad para no aceptar lo material y elegir ser solo espirituales, esa opción la tenemos y nos lleva a derrotar tiranías la principal la creencia en la materia y el dominio tirano de ella, cuantos más haya que derroten en sí mismo esa tiranía menos posibilides hay de que existan las otras.

    Naciones todas, "Someteos, pues, a Dios; rsistid al diablo, y huirá de vosotros" Santiago.
    Derrotado y humillado, por el Amor divino, poniendo en practica lo que aprendemos en la Ciencia Cristiana.
    Muchas gracias Evan por inspirarnos, en mi caso a responder sobre la tiranía.

  26. Dear Evan, Thank you. This too is my prayer.
    July Fourth is not just the United States' celebration of independence from tyranny but we collectively celebrate and support the inalienable rights of all mankind: "self-government, reason, and conscience. Man is properly self-governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by his Maker, divine Truth and Love." (Science and Health p. 106)
    Today my prayers embrace all those suffering from mental oppression, seeking emancipation from man's worst enemies sin, disease and death, with the fact of the ever-present healing Christ, the power of God with men, bringing out man's nobility, goodness, and infinite capacity to reflect divine Love, so as to love his neighbor as himself. I have loved studying what I call the "freedom pages" in Science and Health - pages 223-232. "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

  27. Thank you.

  28. Thank you, Evan, for sharing your prayer for Syria with us. Each of us WILL make a difference as we join you in praying for peace in Syria.

    "The Gabriel of his presence has no contests. To infinite, ever-present Love, all is Love, and there is no error ... nor death." (Science and Health, page 567:6)

  29. God is supreme, the only power. Thanks so much Even. The people of Syria are our brothers and sisters and they will be in my prayers. Love to all.

  30. Nicely stated and something each of us need to remember for ourselve on a daily baiss. Thank you

  31. Thank you, Evan, for your unselfish prayer for Syria on this our U.S. Independence Day! I was thinking of a little story in the Bible (does anyone know where this is?) about how just one wise man prayerd and kept his city from being beseiged by a greedy, conquoring army. The power of One knowing, and now, All of Us knowing - can indeed bring needed Peace and Love to Syria. As Mrs. Eddy wrote, in her spiritual interpretation of the Lord's Prayer, "Enable us to know, as in heaven, so on earth, God is omnipotent, supreme." Let's all continue our Prayers of Knowing God is Governing our dear World! Happy Independence and Freedom and Love and Peace to All! Shalom! Namaste!

  32. I love that a reference to Syria is included in the story of the innocent birth of Jesus, of which, the Angel of the Lord said to the faithful receptive shepherds, such a birth is a sign this (eternal) day of good tidings of great joy, "which shall be to all people."
    (Luke 2).
    Our Lord, our judge, our lawgiver, our king is able to save Syria.
    Thank you for reminding me as I follow the daily Christian Science Monitor reports on Syria.

  33. Thanks Evan. I have been praying for Syria for a good while. I like Psalm 67 as well as this from Science and Health 493:30 "Who dares to doubt this consummate test of the power and willingness of divine Mind to hold man forever intact in his perfect state, and to govern man's entire action?" Your prayer is very inspiring.

  34. Soooo Gooood ... Thank you . :-)

  35. I know that God made all,and is a loving God that overcomes hate and oppression with that ever present love!!

    Thank you Evan and all who hold a caring within for all God's ideas.

  36. The complicated web of motive and action in man dominating man seems beyond understanding.

    When we lived in England almost 5 years, we enjoyed hosting a little party for our neighbors celebrating the 4th of July. (“Cheeky”) They enjoyed letting us know that they thought of it as a “good rid’ins to the pesky colonies” party! We had a great time together.

    Those pesky colonies concept of “one nation under God” (rather than kings) was a divine inspiration, I am sure. Now as we turn our view to the world, we can realize that every person and nation is, in reality, under God. This cannot remain dormant or suppressed. As in individual healing, wishing something bad would go away doesn’t really cut it. Knowing that divine Love (freely given) is the expression of Principle (ever operative law) is an action of God’s government. As anyone who has received a healing with the prayerful help of another individual miles and miles away knows, distance is not a factor in being blanketed by Love. I vote for God’s government in Syria.

    Thanks for the call, Evan.

    And thanks Rosita #26, I am going to the "freedom pages" now.

  37. Thank you, Evan. Just the fact that you have led us all to pray for Syria and its people has a healing effect. It naturally expands to bless all of God's ideas with His justice, protection from evil and everpresent Love.

  38. Oh Thank you Evan. Let there be a happy Independance Day for Syria too,
    government by God -- our Judge, our Lawgiver, our King -- for all mankind.

  39. Thanks Evan, FREEDOM comes from the understanding that God's government is the only one; and is all good. " Our God is good,false fears are foes, TRUTH tatters those, when understood" (Mrs Eddy's hymn 160) He is our only judge and our only lawgiver!! our prayers for the world are so important.

  40. Thank you, Evan!

  41. Evan, this is a great prayer for all mankind, each and every day under every circumstance. So many nations are achieving a better, more spiritual sense of their own identity, and we must give thanks for this vast move forward right now. Surely we must attribute this Daily Lift and its wide listening family for the Word of divine Truth that goes out without limitation or conditions five days a week. Surely the number of Christian Scientists travelling about the world will increase the effect of the Lift wherever there is someone connecting to it. Not too long ago there were 2000 people saying they Liked it, and now there are almost 5,600!
    Well done Nate and the team and many thanks to the BoL and lecturers, and thank you, too Evan; and to the Daily Lifters, helping to spread the Word.

  42. Thanks Evan. Muito obrigada por sua oração.

  43. What a wonderful gift to us to let us join together in this wonderful prayer for Syria -- to trust in the power and effectiveness of prayer and not guns. To trust in God's all embracing love, and not selfishness. Thank you!

  44. Such a beautiful and helpful prayer... thank you!

  45. Healing is in the air! Thanks so much Evan.

  46. Yes!! This prayer is powerful, and gains in power, overcomes all resistance and fear.
    We are all witnesses to this power.
    The Christian Science Hymnal has a hymn which aptly describes how this works.
    See hymn no. 204. One line reads:
    "Thou sendest Thy witnesses [angels], telling Thy worth,
    To call and entreat every nation,
    With news of Thy mighty salvation."

  47. What great thoughts for us to pray with, thank you, Evan.

  48. Way back in the late and early 1960's & 1970's, I had a C/S Practioner who told me that WW|| was so horrible, that a war like that will never happen again. How wrong she was. Look how many smaller wars have occurred since then, where innocent people were killed and slaughtered. Bosnia for example, where people were killed only because of their different religious beliefs. Prayer, yes, but the right kind that will wake up these men & woman to the idea that God is a loving God for all mankind, not for a select few, that humanly force their ideas on others that produce these monstrosities. Then and only then will this carnage stop. Educating from childhood about loving your neighbor will do much.

  49. Thank you all! It's inspiring to know that thousands, likely millions,.of people around the world are praying for peace in Syria. The collective prayers will have an undeniable and inevitable freeing effect.

  50. This is the only real way to celebrate Independence for all countries; PRAYING!
    My sincère THANKS for your contribution to help to inspire our prayers.

    clarae. from Cuernavaca Mèxico.

  51. Thanks, Even, for this call to prayer for Syria! On our U.S. Independence Day, we are all talking time to pray for our brothers and sisters and for their deliverance from the tyranny of slavery to false beliefs! Thank God for Christian Science which is the divine Comforter bringing Bessings, Love and Peace to the world!

  52. Thank you for awakening my thought to pray specifically for a specific "hot spot" in the world; to stop thinking just generalities, but to zero in on the claims of the carnal mind. I hear you!

  53. Well said! Thank you.

  54. Evan, thank you so much for bringing out a solution to the seeming worry of Syria. We do get caught up in just thinking something has to be the way it is and wonder where it will go. You have helped direct the thoughts to go in a different direction. I will hold to your words, as i am sure those that have read your lift, will also do. I have been wanting to be guided for a prayer for Syria and you have answered that prayer. In S&H on page 450 Mary Baker Eddy says, "Who, that has felt the perilous beliefs in life, substance, and intelligence separated from God,can say that there is no error of belief? Knowing the claim of animal magnetism, that all evil combines in the belief of life, substance, and intelligence in matter, electricity, animal nature, and organic life, who will deny that these are the errors which Truth must and will annihilate? Christian Scientists must live under the contant pressure of the apostolic command to come out from the material world and be separate. They must renounce aggression, oppression and the pride of power. Christianity, with the crown of Love upon her brow, must be their queen of life." It all begins and ends with Love. Ever present Love. Together, we can all shower (and blanket) Syria with Love. Thank you again, for this eye opening lift on July 4th.

  55. Thank you so much Evan for your prayer for Syria. I love the ideas you share for their appropriateness especially today ... our own naiton's Independence Day. My prayer for freedom from the mental tyranny of mortal images suggesting man as subject to material conditions and personalities, was answered with a simple glimpse of divine reality ... that true being, my own and my neighbor's, is singularly spiritual, though infinite in quality, not material and multiple in quantity, and reflecting "one universal God, the invisible good dwelling in eternal Science." (p. 78) I am rejoicing with you and all commenting on today's Lift in this asssurance from the textbook of our Comforter ... "Like our nation, Christian Science has its Declaration of Independence. God has endowed man with inalienable rights, among which are self-government, reason, and conscience." (p. 106) That endowment is all that is real and active in both the divine and the human economy today. Happy 4th of July everyone!

  56. Thank you for addressing an issue that has been troubling me too. You have upheld Truth where dismay is being displayed. I am grateful to hear you support of what is real and will use it in my prayers.

  57. The Assad family-rulers of Syria right now-as that country deals with civil war- are all trained in the medical profession and its various aspects and its sad that their work right now doesn't allow them to utilize the compassion and love many physicians have for their patients. S ometimes we feel we are the only ones praying about a difficulty-but then I am reminded of the Bible admonition that "the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man availth much." That's an assurance we all can draw strength and encouragement from.

  58. Thank you

  59. Thank you, Evan, for a beautiful Independence Day Prayer. I join you in it, not just for Syria, but for all people everywhere. Wanting freedom for all people doesn't mean to force a copy of our government on any country, but yields, and trusts in the divine law of Principle, divine Love. yea, the divine Mind of all. With God, all involved are blessed. I also heard much in this prayer to use to dust spaces in my own country that need tidied up with inspiration to eliminate lazy, indifferent, ignorant, or greedy citizens to become responsible ones to preserve, and increase the good we have. I "saw & heard" fireworks in the wake of this prayer - silent, yet echoing bursts of peace, joy, freedom, harmony spraying over the world. There are 51 comments as I post this, all so loving and inspiring. There has been forward movement today on this and wherever need for more freedom exists. Thank you, all. This is only a hint of more who hear, read, and offer their prayers, not yet seen here.

  60. when I hear about the so-called greatness of kings and generals, I think about when the disciples asked Jesus who is greatest among them, and Jesus answered, He who is greatest among you is most servant of all. And, of course, our divine Exemplar, was the greatest servant to humanity, teaching us, healing the sick, raising the dead, through God, his (our) Father-Mother, through Truth and Love. So with Evan leading the day today, by following Jesus, we can together pour in "oil and wine" like the Good Samaritan, "pour in Truth through flood-tides of Love", and like so many Lifters have said, blanket Syria with the comfort wherewith we are comforted.

  61. What wonderful lessons today in the Lifts. No matter what comes to us, any error, we can turn to God, Divine Love. Clad in that panoply of Love, we can help the dear ones in Syria. With Love to all

  62. Thank you Evan for that reminder that people in Syria and our world are working to find their freedom from oppression. Looking back over the history of the world, the examples of individuals who provided leadership to win freedom from injustice and tyranny, and their bravery in small and outstanding acts, is still present today. Mind, God, the Mind that all men and women do express, is operating now!

  63. Thanks for your thoughts, Evan. This can certainly apply to Iraq; Afganistan or any other location that comes into thought! Your ideas can be applied to family issues too...."let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me...."

  64. Muy agradecida Evan por tu magnífico y sanador Lift !!! Mis mejores deseos a todos uds. hoy 4 de Julio- en los EEUU - al celebrar el Día de la Independencia . Independencia vital para todos los países y pueblos de la tierra . Muy oportuno y necesario tu mensaje de Oración por Siria .

    Pensaba en mrs. Eddy al escribir el inspirado Himno 'Satisfecho' que dice: '... Del trono del tirano vil Dios puede bien simiente pura hacer surgir por quien Le es fiel...' Del fiero mal la esclavitud rompe el Amor ; ....' Los siglos caen, cadenas no hay; ¡gloria a Dios! .....

    En el libro texto leemos: ' El Amor y la Verdad liberan, pero el mal y el error conducen al cautiverio '.
    Allí mismo en Siria como en cualquier otro lugar del mundo , lo único que existe es la Presencia de Dios, el Espíritu . Y ' Donde está el Espíritu del Señor, allí hay libertad'. (cys p 227)
    Elevemos en nuestras oraciones el 'Estandarte de la libertad' que mrs. Eddy proclama a los hijos de Dios, como ciudadanos del mundo. Y agrega diciendo : ' Ese es vuestro derecho divino' .

    ' Y oí como la voz de una gran multitud, como el estruendo de muchas aguas, y como la voz de grandes truenos, que decía: ¡ Aleluya, porque el Señor nuestro Dios Todopoderoso reina! (Apocalipsis 19:6)

    Agradezco los comentarios anteriores.
    Un abrazo grande , Amor y Paz para todos, Ma. Cristy

    ¡ Feliz Día de la Independencia !!!

  65. All helpful and necessary observations on God the Creator's ultimate government. (A small comment: the "under God" part of the U.S. Constitution was added in recent years, and whether one believes that it is Under God or not, it is good to include all Life as Independent of the tyranny of error, no matter how we describe Truth, where we are or what language we speak, may we include all Created Equal! Independent of Fear, tyranny, & other false identification.

  66. What a beautiful prayer for our brothers and sisters in Syria and a pertinent reminder of your quotation from Isaiah. Our prayers are heard and may the people of Syria celebrate their own Independence Day and peace will come. Thank you Evan for your contribution to the Daily Lifts. Blessings to you from your friends in Canada.

  67. Thanks for sharing the "how to pray" for Syria et al.....those were powerful statements of Truth that I'm inspired to declare myself for our brothers and sisters.

  68. Thank you, thank you for reaching out with your method of service - effective prayer - to the dear people of Syria!

  69. Much needed

    Each individual Syrian is a child of God, under His care.

    God exerts His power in Syria.

    God's power is love. - something I learned in yesterday's chat with Tim Myers on freedom from racial hatred.

  70. Thumbs up five thousand six hundred and now one

  71. Thank you for this deep and meaningful lift.We all join you in this prayer for peace...now and forever.

  72. Lenore from Lakewood, OH.....I feel so honored to be a part of the Christian Science community. I thanked my 95 year old sister-in-law AGAIN today when we called her in Florida to wish her a happy holiday. She gave me a Christian Science Sentinel subscription for my birthday years ago. She is a CS and we often shared our belief in one God, many paths. Over the years we worshiped together in her church when we were in FL and she worshiped at our church when she was in Ohio. I discovered the Daily Lift in my birthday subscription of the Sentinel.. I often share the lectures with my church, Old Stone Presbyterian Church.....I definitely will share today's Lift. Thank you.

  73. Thank you Evan for this much need payer. It was needed and much apprecitated! Happy 4th of July Evan!!

  74. "and Jesus spoke with authority, and not as one of the scribes..." --KJV

    Evan, you spoke with that same authority in this "lift". Thank you!

  75. WELL Said, Evan! Thank you.

  76. This was wonderful. I have been praying about Syria along other lines, and appreciated this fresh, inspired idea -- one Judge, Lawgiver. I have been praying with some ideas from Daniel, second chapter.

    Daniel blessed the God of heaven.
    20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:
    21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
    22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

  77. 31 To Bev in Sandpoint
    The reference is Ecclesiastes 9: 14
    Thanks for the Daily Lifts
    Gwyneth Wilson

  78. That was just so full of love,dear Evan.....thanks...the best news I've heard about Syria ....and that Truth does reach over continent and ocean and heal whatever needs to be healed..... we pray that both sides feel the oneness that Love gives us. Heartfelt thanks once again

  79. "Our God is One Mind/the Mind we adore" (Christian Science Hymnal). That is the only Mind with any force or creativity anywhere. Nothing is hidden in this Oneness. The light of Christ is in every back room, awakening each one to their harmlessness, blamelessness, indestructibility.

    Thanks for focusing the light for us, Evan.

  80. Well said, Evan, and Peter from NY, #37!!! My thoughts precisely. Grateful for your powerful, concise statements of
    universal Truth. Expecting justice ruling over bullies at every turn. Just finished rereading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini that put me in touch with gross injustices against women in Muslim countries gone astray and am grateful for an anchor to pray with for these dear people. And thank you #79 In Progress for your expansion of enlightening thought that bears repeating, "The light of Christ is in every back room, awakening each one to their harmlessness, blamelessness, indestructibility." May we all see a major difference with God's power focussed from this lift. Amen.

  81. Wonderful lift!I Love the statement that "God is the king with the final say". This dispells all worry or doubt in any situation. As always the Daily Lift has lifted me! Thank you!

  82. Thank you for the enlightening lift - so clarifying. The comments which follow it provide so much
    opportunity to view things in the light of Truth.

  83. Thank you Evan for the helpful ideas to pray for Syria.

    I hope the BOL will continue with Daily Lifts for specific, focused prayer for other parts of the world. What a difference these inspired and inspiring lifts could (and are!) make for our troubled world. (=

  84. Thank you, Evan, for this prayer for Syria specifically, and all the world generally.

  85. Very timely and sincere for the Divine Love to reach all ears that we may insure this safety and that the conflict end and" Peace be Still" and Love finds it way.

  86. The tearing down of the old, to make way for the new. The self-destruction of error. One error of the ages is handing down to the children the hatreds and calls for revenge to the next generation. The Sunnis and the Shiites are and have been fighting over the successor to Mohammed for about 600 years. Compare that to Queen Elizabeth traveling to Ireland, and shaking hands with the "enemy" from the "troubles" of just a few years back. And Prince Phillip shaking the hand of the murderer of his brother Lord Mountbatten, publicly, for the sake of peace going forward. Syria, purified, will be peaceful.Progress is the law of God.

  87. Thanks, Evan.
    Hope the July fireworks enlighten the people as they illumine the cities !

    And if there should be a downside it is only under the swan, paddling its webbed feet madly to ensure a smoother glide on the surface !
