9/3: One God over Syria

9/3: One God over Syria

  1. Amen,Evan!
    Let us all remain CALM and CARRY ON ! Trust GOD and our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy who
    gave us blessed scientific prayer to use in treating our individual concept of Syria/others/all Bible Lands!

    God is already Our Only Real Parent and Government ! Praise GOD !

  2. Thank you Evan for this Lift that calls to our attention a situation that needs and requires the worlds prayerful thought. This is of an immediate nature. We can pray to know, that the power, compassion, and guidance of one infinite, all-mighty God, is present in the hearts and minds of those in Washington as well as those in the streets of Syria. There is not a place where God is not. There is no human condition or situation that is beyond God's complete control. Our prayers will bring this to light.

  3. Thank you for the reminder that there is "One infinite God, good..." to live for and to witness.

    Everywhere. All over the world. At all times and in every situation.

  4. Amen.

    Thank you, Evan.

    Let's say it again.

    One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfills the Scripture, ‘Love thy neighbor as thyself;’ annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry, – whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed.
    Mary Baker Eddy

    (Science and Health p. 340)

    Truth, Wisdom, Love and Sincerity, to ALL mankind.

  5. Thanks for the focus Evan. My prayers remain with the victims, the so-called collateral damage, of misled "leaders" who cannot accept the Truths we instantly recognize in Christian Science - - ONE GOD, ONE MIND, all LOVED. Let us not lose the focus necessary to heal this and similar conflicts.

  6. Finally got it to work and I heard it. This one really nailed it!!

  7. An important timely message to remember that we are united by the one true God...and that we should all pray daily for solutions of peace throughout the world. " For many years I have prayed daily that there be no more war, no more barbarous slaughtering of our fellow-beings; prayed that all the peoples on earth and the islands of the sea have one God, one Mind; love God supremely, and love their neighbor as themselves . (My. 286:3) Thanks, Evan.

  8. What a precious prayer for us all to hold on to. One God, Love, for all. Thank you so much Romée.

  9. Thank you Evan, what a wonderfully compassionate prayer for Syria and DL
    Would be beneficial if everybody concerned could read it.

  10. Many thanks Evan for this inspiring reminder. Yes." We all have the same one infinite God, universal Love, united in universal peace." "Day by day the understanding/ Of our oneness shall increase,/ Till among all men and nations/ Warfare shall forever cease,/ So God's children all shall dwell/ in joy and peace." (Christian Science Hymnal #157).

  11. Thank you so much, dear Evan, for this Daily Lift. Yes, there is only one God over Syria, over all. God is uniting everyone here in the Middle East and in the whole world. May there be peace in our hearts, peace in the world.

  12. This is a tremendous Lift and very helpful indeed. Peace starts with thought uplifted to the one God because it is God given. The warring mentality has nothing to govern because it is ultimately divided even against itself. Each individual apparently caught up in conflict in Syria is, in reality, an idea beloved by God and can know God and find peace.

  13. Thank you Evan for this so needed 'Lift'

  14. Evan, Thank you for your prayer for Syria and for affirming God's complete love and control over all in that country

  15. Thank you for this inspiring lift Evan. It has helped to get my own ideas on the subject into the correct perspective and I'm certain it will inspire us all to pray for Syria and World peace and feel a unity with all those other people out there who are doing likewise.

  16. yes, indeed, just what we need to hear, thank you for those helpful thoughts.

  17. Tumult may fog reason and don’t let us see that the only God of universal Love unites all His children into one.

    "One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfils the Scripture, "Love thy neighbor as thyself;" annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry, — whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed." S&H 340:23

    ESPAÑOL
    El tumulto puede nublar la razón y no dejarnos ver que el único Dios del Amor universal une a todos Sus hijos en uno.

    “Un solo Dios infinito, el bien, unifica a los hombres y a las naciones; constituye la hermandad del hombre; pone fin a las guerras; cumple el mandato de las Escrituras: "Amarás a tu prójimo como a ti mismo"; aniquila a la idolatría pagana y a la cristiana —todo lo que es injusto en los códigos sociales, civiles, criminales, politicos y religiosos; establece la igualdad de los sexos; anula la maldición que pesa sobre el hombre, y no deja nada que pueda pecar, sufrir, ser castigado o destruido.” CyS 340:23

  18. 'God is Great' = 'God is All-in-all' = the 'one Father with His universal family' [S&H 577.3].

  19. thank you evan for this prayer for syria .I wholeheartedly join you with the same prayer as yours as I couldn,t say it any better.LOVE and PEACE to AL persons .

  20. Thank you Evan. That message is really helpful and will be an aid to my prayers for Syria too.

  21. Thank you so much for this lift and especially for reading the passage from Science and Health which will be my prayer for Syria today.

  22. many thanks for your entirely spiritual understanding of a material situation. It is the only way a peaceful solution can be found.

  23. Thank you for raising my thought above the human picture. I'm travelling today, so will make sure I give some time to further correcting my thinking on this situation, rather than "passing by on the other side". We can each pour some oil and wine into the wounds.

  24. Thank you Evan!

    “Spiritual evolution alone is worthy of the exercise of divine power.”
    (S&H)
    This statement makes simple and effective our prayers for peace the human manifestation of "One infinite God, good..." as Evan says, and makes of non-effect the messy politics of mortal mind that would polarize both here and abroad. This takes humility and obedience.

  25. THANK YOU. There truly is one God watching over all of us at the same moment.

  26. Thank You, and there is only one Mind governing us all.

  27. Thank you Evan for this prayer for Syria and all the world. It is time we love the 'war' out of all our 'brethren' on all fronts. One infinite Mind, divine Love governs each man, woman and child, all of God's ideas even in the most desolate, war torn places of the world. God is there tenderly wrapping each idea in Love, reflecting peace, harmony and charity individually and collectively. For me hymn 179 verse 3 says it best, " 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." This has been proven many, many times and will be proven many more until we are all of 'one Mind.' Thank you again Evan for this love filled reminder to keep the world in our daily prayers.

  28. And He loves each of us! Amen

  29. Listening to the Bible Lesson on Sunday, "Christ Jesus" - I realised that although people in the Arab nations may not know or recognise Jesus as God's son, the Christ is still there - everywhere - the communicator of God's love and wisdom, "the true idea voicing good". So, they don't have to "go through Jesus to find God" - the Christ and God is already there - pure, strong, and uplifting. And that was surely Jesus' message!

  30. Yes, "One infinite God, good, unifies..." (S&H 340:23). I join with others in praying with this truth daily, and our oneness in Truth is a mighty power and light to overcome and outshine the darkness of mortal beliefs and lies that confront us in all its forms. I give thanks to our Father Mother God for the saving Christ and Holy Comforter - here, there, everywhere - and for the gift of Christian Science with its healing design of Church. Thank you, Evan, DL Team, Lifters for prayers going forth and blessings felt.

  31. Thanks so much, Evan. Just what I needed. Am dealing with a situation involving an old college friend who seems deeply opposed to Christianity. Your thoughts on Syria are very relevant to this!

  32. Thank you for this reminder and to practice and keep ever present the awareness that there is one God . No matter what and where the conflict and error appears today , the solution is in the truth . . . that there is one God and that in that Oneness there is a majority.

  33. Good, Evan!

  34. Thank you so much Evan for your helpful, inspirational lift!
    How easy it is to think of the material mortal picture of Syria's pain and how, with Mrs. Eddy's words, we can all demonstrate divine Love for this situation.
    "When the illusion of [error] tempts you, cling steadfastly to God and His idea. Allow nothing but His likeness to abide in your thought. Let neither fear nor doubt overshadow your clear sense and calm trust...or belief in, that which Life is not. Let Christian Science, instead of corporeal sense, support your understanding of being...[to]...silence discord with harmony" (MBE "Science and Health" p495).
    Evan, as you say, "It is the God of Love that can unite many into one." One God, one divine Love for all, over all.
    As Paul wrote to the Thessalonians and Mrs. Eddy reiterates: "We must 'Pray without ceasing'" (p15 "Science and Health").

    Thank you Evan and lifters and The Daily Lift Team for working on this important message.

  35. Thanks so much, Evan, for such a timely message and to think those words quoted by Mary Baker Eddy were written over 100 years ago and are still applicable today.

  36. Ret. 56:12-15
    War is waged between the evidence of Spirit and the evidence of the five physical senses; and this contest must go on until peace is declared by the final triumph of Spirit in immutable harmony.
    Peace; Be STILL and know that I AM God.

  37. Un sólo Dios, que une a todos, en un manto indiviso pleno de infinita bondad, oremos para que la humanidad, en este caso Siria, encuentren el camino de la concordia y hermanados sigan la senda que los conduzca a una solución pacífica, y sea demostrada, la paciencia, tolerancia, benignidad, y respeto mutuo, que debe primar en todos si queremos salir de los conflitos y vivir en paz, entiendo que será necesario un cambio radical del pensamiento humano hacia otras realizaciones más justas, donde sólo exista un anhelo, el bien comun, para demostrar cuanto más puede hacer el Amor, que las armas.

    Muchas gracias Evan, oremos.

  38. Thank you for the only real approach to heal the situation and our thoughts.

  39. thank you evan

  40. Very powerful message --- thank you, Evan. An idea I've been praying with in regard to this situation is that the God who is Mother is right there (and right here) with Her children, speaking very clearly to them, and directing them. And all the children of Mother are able to hear Her and do what She says.

  41. Thank you for this positive lift as I pray for Syria and the world today!

  42. Thank you Evan for shinning the "light" on this needed prayer for Syria.

  43. Thank you Evan, Let us all begin with peace within ourselves and our families.One infinite God, one Mind governing all. I would like to add to this international prayer, the words of the Apostle Paul to the Phillipians :"If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better to themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus".

  44. Thank you, Evan, for this Prayer For Peace in Syria and the Middle East. I am united with you and All Pray-ers in the world who are holding fast to the One Love and Peace that reign in All our Hearts, as Children of the One God. God's Oneness is His Allness. And Thank you to #29 Irene. That helped to clear something up for me! There is only One God, Good, One Mind, governing All - that's the scientific and spiritual Fact, today and always!

  45. Thank you.

  46. Thank you Evan. Our son is in the Middle East and we pray daily to know that he and everyone in the region are under the control of one good God. I am so grateful to know there are so many others praying to know there is only one God.

  47. Thank you Evan!

  48. No matter how much "The People of the Book" love and revere their prophets and teachers (Moses, Jesus, Mohammed), all of the children of Abraham are instructed to love above all the One God, also called Allah.

    God (Spirit) is the one real attraction...not "winning" or revenge or any kind of false power. Even our heartfelt loyalty to our books and prophets should not tempt us to go to war over their teachings, which also include loving one another. .

    The Christian Science Weekly Bible Lesson for this week shows how blessed, free, and obedient we already are as the children of the One Creator.

  49. There should be great results from your Daily Lift, Evan. Individual and collective prayer has a power nothing else can match. Mrs Eddy had such confidence that the Christ is everpresent and all-powerful, and always triumphs. I love where she says in Science and Health "The power of Christian Science and divine Love is omnipotent. It is indeed adequate to unclasp the hold and to destroy disease, sin, and death."
    Thanks to all the comments so far, and to you Nathan and the team for this world wide podcast, and to The Mother Church and the Board of Lectureship - there is certainly no limit to your outreach among all mankind.

  50. Thank you _Evan for this very good messaje, uniting us in prayer for Siria and the whole world. God's Kingdom everpresent.

  51. Thank you Evan, What a wonderful lift for the day. I am reminded to pray for world peace each and every day and all day long and how important each of our prayers for peace is! Thank you, Joycebelle

  52. Thank you Evan. How very needed in the middle East. We waant to see the atrocities stopped, and the PRAYER power already reaches into every heart and mind and governs them (us) all. It's here where the battle will be won, not by more killing -- however well motivated those who would stop injustice that way..
    God is OUR FATHER -- God of all the families and nations --as in the Lord's Prayer. For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory for ever! amen.

  53. As usual, Evan came up with the best prayer yet for the healing of what's going on in Syria. This error has been accepted far too long, let it be expunged NOW! To even think that one of God's creation can harm another of God's creation is too absurd to even contemplate. It is an infraction of what is true. All mankind reflects God's loving compassion. This is the real. This is the truth, AMEN.
    By TOBIAS A. WEISSMAN

  54. The illusion of hate beside the allness of love against which no illusion is.

  55. Thank you, Evan, for reading that remarkable statement by Mary Baker Eddy. It shines more brightly in consciousness as the demand for its fulfillment grows. Yes, "One infinite God, good, unifies . . .".

  56. Good lift Evan and the comments were most helpful.
    I often find it practical to apply the following quote by Eddy about Jesus for all concerned that are suffering today : SH 43:24-26 "Out of reach of the barbarity of his enemies, he was acting under spiritual law in defiance of matter and mortality, and that spiritual law sustained him."
    That spiritual law is in operation now.

  57. Thank you Evan. God is ALL and his voice of Love and Truth will speak louder than the voices of hate and prejudice. When all peoples realize that the only power is from God/Love, wars will cease and peace will reign.

  58. Most potent, Evan. Thank you.

  59. "The first commandment is my favourite text" Mary Baker Eddy. Acknowleging this fact, yielding to Hm, placing all His strong hands, bringing about an expected end The battle is God's not theirs

    Today focusses on rest and peace for the peoples of the Middle East.

    Time for rejocing in One universal God. Amen

    Thank you Even for putting Eddy's words on my front burner

  60. Thank you for this remindin. only one Mind, one Spirit, one Life, one Truth, one Love, blessesall mandkind

  61. Thank you, Evan, for your very helpful message today.

  62. Thank you, Evan, for focusing our thoughts and prayers on the needs of Syria.
    The time has come for prophecy to be fulfilled: "They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up [any weapon] against [its own people or any other] nation, neither shall they learn war any more." Micah 4:3

    I'll be thinking today from a spiritual perspective, from God's point of view. Hymn 276 will guide me. Peace be to this [nation]; Peace to every heart therein; Peace, that floweth as a river From the eternal source alone. Come with Thy deep consolations, Peace of God which passeth thought.

    Thank you everyone for your healing thoughts and prayers.

  63. Thank you for this reminder to pray for peace everywhere everyday, with special emphasis on the middle east currently.

  64. Thanks Even. We do have one God, one Father of us all. While we have individual idfferences, they can compliment instead of barb peace when we see them through the eyes of divine Love ( the spiritual lLove that connects all things, people, ideas together). We all must seek peace because peace is not just for Syria but for all the world, but Syria especially needs God, Love's embrace right now. "Seek and pursue it ", an edict for all of us daily.

  65. I am very grateful for these clear, up-lifting thoughts today. Thank you, Evan, commenters, and everyone joining in this stand with Truth.

    Love and blessings and peace be with everyone everywhere every moment!

  66. THANK YOU EVAN, YOU HAVE MADE IT ALL SO CLEAR. THIS IS WHAT WILL PREVAIL.

  67. Thank you for your thoughts, comments and ideas. Our collective prayers DO make a difference!

    Love

  68. Thank you for this loving prayer for mankind.

  69. Thank you for addressing the Syria situation and engaging us in this important prayer for our world. Understanding that the Truth of one God, one government - one Kingdom of Heaven that we all live and move in, also brings the peace we seek in our individual lives.Grateful to be praying with everyone here at the Lift for peace.

  70. Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you Evan for that powerful and timely Lift. And -- for all the lifters thoughts and especially the Hymn reminders of the oneness and omnipotence of God/Mind.

    There IS indeed only one Mind leading to wisdom, justice, right thinking --- for all leaders and those affected by the mortal dream of chaos, war and fear.

    One Mind -- AND -- infinite, omnipotent LOVE

    Ditto: #19
    Hymn 179:
    "Love one another -- word of revelation..."

    "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."

  71. This lift was so helpful in lifting my thought in prayer for Syria and the Middle East. Thank you to our loving God who is uniting us all in peace at this very moment. Thank you to Evan for this inspiration today.

  72. One God, One Mind....It is our divine purpose to be knowing this today. Thank you so much.

  73. Dear Kevin, what a precious message.

  74. Thank you, Evan, for the wonderful lift.
    Hymn no. 82
    "God is working His purpose out
    As year succeeds to year....And the time is drawing near, When the earth shall be filled with the glory of God As the waters cover the sea."
    This hymn is an inspiration to me as I hear the broadcasts of the war in Syria.
    The battle between evil and good will be won as we march forth in the strength of
    God with the banner of Christ unfurled, as the hymn states in the last verse.
    Peace, be still, the battle is The Lord,s.
    I loved all the comments today and know all will be blessed by the thoughts.

  75. Thank you Evan, perfect thought for today. That passage from p. 340 in S&H was one that my grandmother had me memorize when I was 5 years old. It has stayed with me and be so helpful through all these years since. And many thanks to all the lifters for your great thoughts and the love you all share. Thanks also to Nate and your team.

  76. Thank you Evan, and all the lifters for praying effectively to bring peace to the country of Syria.
    The one infinite God effectively applies the spiritual law, Truth.
    Another interpretation by Mrs. Eddy, while explaining the chapter Genesis 2 about "the mist that went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground" includes this statement:
    "God becomes "a man of war," a
    tribal god to be worshipped, rather than Love, the divine
    Principle to be lived and loved." (S&H pg 624).
    Which God will we choose?

  77. Thank you Evan! It's great to know that we are part of global prayer team, and that "Truth is always the victor."

  78. I just appreciate so much this Lift, and all others as well. Such thought- provoking and precious responses by Lifters too! Thank you everyone.

  79. Evan, thank you, so much, for being such a great 'cheer leader' for our prayers for Syria and the whole Middle East region. Your UPLIFTing attitude of enthusiasm is often the quality that breaks fear's mesmeric hold which we need to be free from in order to "see the truth, know the truth, be the truth, and the truth will set [us] free."

    (I believe these lyrics are from a 1970's song by Larry Groce)

  80. Thanks # 12: 'The warring mentality has nothing to govern because it is ultimately divided even against itself.' As Jesus said of Satan. True then, true now. And in Science and Health: "The only power of evil is to destroy itself." page 186:19

  81. There are no sides pick when God is seen as the one governing force and in control. Now are we the children of God and as that becomes a prayer today other temptations to see something else will disappear from my view. Amen.

  82. Wonderful healing prayer for all.Thank you very much.

  83. I thank you so much Evan for this divine inspiration.

  84. There couldn't be a more appropriate thought to lift us for today, Evan--thank you so much! Lovely music, as well.

  85. Thank you, Evan, for “One God over Syria … there aren’t many gods to fight for; there’s only one God to live for … that can unite many into one.”

    “E Pluribus Unum, ‘Out of many, one’” … because out of ONE - many!!! One cause. One effect. One God. One creation - in all its manifestations. This is an historically and globally challenging concept; but, we have been given/gifted with the Bible as a survival manual and guide to salvation, which includes the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule, as inspired and practical rules of engagement. We have also been given what I consider, a Christian mandate to prove “Peace on earth” through “good will toward men” (Luke 2:14), presented almost like a “gift tag” accompanying the birth of Jesus, who came to show us how – to heal “every ill that flesh is heir to!”

    We’re called as healing ministers – spiritual warriors with non-carnal weapons, to wield the power of Love. "God is Love" (John) and we, in God’s image and likeness (Genesis), wielding the power of Love as is in our nature. We have Love. We ARE Love, sharing all its attributes like goodness, respect, compassion, inclusiveness, kindness, gratitude, gentleness, patience, humor, chastity, mercy, courage, and forgiveness – our weapons against “every ill that flesh is heir to.” These non-carnal weapons are, in effect, tools for peace building.

    As this holy purpose unfolds in my thought, I continue learning and practicing “Peace on Earth” as and through Universal Love.

  86. Thank you Evan for this very timely treatment..."One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations" ( Mary Baker Eddy)... what a clarifying and focusing thought. This was immensely helpful in praying for a right outcome in Syria. .

  87. Love this: "There's one God to live for, not one God to fight over." That's perfect. Should be on bumper stickers!

  88. Mrs. Eddy said "For many years I have prayed daily that there be no more war, no more barbarous slaughtering of our fellow-beings; prayed that all the peoples on the earth and the islands of the sea have one God, one Mind; love God supremely, and love their neighbor as themselves." My 286:3

    Thank you Evan.

  89. Two hours ago, before I got home to read this Perfect Lift, I was sitting in my car, wondering how I could pray for Syria. Mrs. Eddy's statement on pg. 340 in Science and Health came to thought. It's the perfect solution. How incredible, and yet completely natural, to find the same statement as the bedrock of Evan's lift today. Further light came while thinking of that statement earlier...that God is not creating peace, or fixing nations, etc. It's our own individual realization that there is only "One Infinite God, good..." and that realization is what "unifies men and nations, ...ends wars, etc." When we realize that all there is is God, good, who is infinite All and One, there is no other mind, warring faction or thing that needs healing, or awful human situation that needs resolution. What does God know? Only His/Her own Goodness, Allness and Oneness. That precludes all else. And our own realization of this Fact brings peace to us [to our consciousness] and to the world. Thank you Evan, and thank you to all contributors and spiritual seekers.

  90. A little Sunday School student reminded me that God gives us presents, as well as protects us. The greatest present of all is love. When we went through the story of Joseph, we realized that Joseph always had an infinite store of love to love with. With no judgments on anyone's beliefs or actions he had bountiful love with which to love his captors, doing the best work he could for them, to love his captor's wife (keeping her safe from sin) to love his fellow inmates, his captors' king, and the entire population of a foreign and pagan nation, enabling him to feed and bless them. Finally he had all the love he needed to love his own brethren who betrayed him. God is pouring out this love to everyone, and we, like Joseph, can know that our prayers will bring to light the purpose of His presence, His present: to save life, to bring comfort and complete forgiveness, to make us one family with one Father/Mother: Love.

  91. Divine Love is revealing itself to the entire world. Many Blessings to you!
    Thank you Evan!

  92. Thanks, Evan, for bringing out that oneness of God and man, and the fact that Love alone is our divine Parent, for Love(God) alone is power. Man's true nature, as God's child, is to love as God loves. All of us are united brothers and sisters under the bond of divine Love. All are most precious in God's sight.

    RIGHT NOW & ALWAYS...
    God is declaring Himself the supreme power over all men and nations(omnipotence); no one is outside of His kingdom; Man reflects this government here on earth.
    Only one God, all-loving & good present (omnipresence) expressed by all his loving children.
    One all-knowing intelligence (omniscience); man can only express divine intelligence for good alone.
    One action of divine Love annuls everything that isn't Love (omniaction); man is the child of divine Love.

    The entire world can feel the healing effects of the Christ Truth (our scientific prayers) now, because...
    "The "still, small voice" of scientific thought reaches over continent and ocean to the globe's remotest bound. The inaudible voice of Truth is, to the human mind, "as when a lion roareth." It is heard in the desert and in dark places of fear....Then is the power of Truth demonstrated, — made manifest in the destruction of error." From Science & Health p. 559:8

    "BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD...I will be exalted in the earth." Ps. 46:10

  93. Thank you so much Evan for such an inspiring, comforting and powerful prayer for this sad possibility of another turbulent period at the middle east!
    So: just one God, one Mind with His omnipresence, omniscience and omnipotence!
    That´s it!!!!

  94. You are Right-On, Thanks Evan.

  95. Thanks Evan. I love the quote you shared by Mrs. Eddy. It's a powerful prayer for unity, peace, and love. Thanks Peggy from Michigan! <3 The C.S. hymn you've shared is so lovely for the purpose of seeing all nations as one, in Love's embrace. Now I'll be singing it the rest of the day as a prayer!

  96. Such a big THANK YOU !
    I can hardly tell how much I appreciate this daily lift and all the comments. Living in Lebanon, as a French (C.S.), I feel a bit concerned by the intentions of the french government to get involved - like the US - in Syria). I am surrounded by Lebanese and Syrian people ( workers, refugees...) and after the latest bombings here in Lebanon killing Shiahs on one side and Sunnites on the other side, bombings directed by Syria, there are much tension among the people. ... From here it seems so complicated, as it is not simply religious, but political , and a question of power...
    Even all these are false Gods! and you helped to focus on this loving, intelligent ONE GOD, directing all involved, specially when you said:
    "The Love of God touches the hearts and minds of everyone involved... ».
    Yes one MIND , one LOVE omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient (allknowing).
    Such gratitude for this prayerful lift!

  97. Thank you for this lift specifically addressing the situation in Syria at present. It means a great deal to me and my Syrian friends who have asked for and been very grateful for our prayers all through the crisis. The Gospels report that Christ was known throughout Syria and that is what helps me to continue praying, knowing that the Christ, the love of God, is already there and has not been displaced or over-ruled.

  98. Thank you Evan and all and especially name 48. The 'dream' from which no one would awaken is the one where we live in the land where 'fetters fall and the rights of man are fully known and acknowledged'. Of course that was never a dream, it was always the reality. The illusion is it was only in one little corner of the globe.

    Daily Lift Team

  99. Thanks, Evan. Your message today has really helped me refocus my attention to this problem in a way that can contribute to resolving it rather than just watching it.

  100. IN MRS. EDDY´S WORDS I PRAY "GOD BLESS MY ENEMIES; MAKE THEM THY FRIENDS; GIVE THEM TO KNOW THE JOY AND PEACE OF LOVE" (MY. 220: 21) SO IF THEY ARE GOD´´S FRIENDS, THERE CAN BE NO ENIMIES! THANK YOU SO MUCH EVAN, ALL OUR PRAYERS ARE SO NEEDED.

  101. Thank you for all the helpful lifts today.

  102. Evan, thank you for the loving prayer for Syria. It is directed to our minds and hearts to comfort and bless. Dear Monique, thank you for your thoughts. Love is the liberator!

  103. Thanks Evan,sometimes we get to focessed on our small issues, love to all..................

  104. Thank you for this united, wholly undivided daily lift!

  105. Great prayer. Thank you for sharing it with all of us!

  106. "One infinite God, good...ends wars..." But who starts them? Obviously mortal mind, the death mind, the dualistic upstart that says 'the only way to end this conflict is to duke it out because I am right and you or they are wrong.' No. We who know that isn't true need to be proactive about thinking outside the boxes that got the world into this mess. We need to do more than quote MBE: we need to trust that God does, indeed, "end wars" and this ending may possibly include preventing them. "Blessed are the peacemakers..." They, not the warmongers, shall be called the children of God. As MBE notes, divine Love "disentangles the interlaced ambiguities ..." And this should include the complex and contradictory interests of politics and economy. Thanks, Evan, for giving us a clear statement of the absolute stand we all must take.

  107. Great point Irene #29! And Mrs. Eddy's conclusion to that quote about Christ... "the true idea voicing good"..."speaking to the human consciousness." and from the C.S. hymnal "The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking, unloosing bonds of all captivity." That's the savior of the world!

  108. What a beautiful thought to counter the news!

  109. AWESOME! I could not have put it so well!

  110. Absolutely wonderful, It covered everything. I really needed this. Thanks Evan

  111. a belated thank you for sure.

  112. Thank you for the clear, comforting message today, Evan! I too love to pray along the lines that the one divine Mind who created the universe governs every detail of His creation in eternity. And that this creative Mind is divine Love! I hold to this truth for myself and my loved ones, and for the whole world. It's amazing to see how a day that might otherwise be chaotic is perfectly ordered, with necessary goals achieved, and details worked out with harmony and a attended by joy and buoyancy. Understanding that there truly is only one infinite God energizes the daily life and frees from narrow agendas and the oppressiveness of selfish living. Infinity knows absolutely know limits (including political boundaries and tribal attitudes). And eternity is not an extension of time; it has absolutely nothing to do with time. The eternal life that Jesus promised to his faithful followers is not a future promise, but a present possibility, and it extends to all "honest seekers for Truth". I am quite certain that these "honest seekers" number in the tens of millions around the world, and that there are plenty of them in Syria right now and in all the Middle East - enough to bring about a genuine "springtime" to that region. I pray that these honest seekers cannot be deprived of their one true and inalienable human right of knowing God and awaking to His divine Science of being.

  113. And thank you, too, for all those great video lifts that you sent from Holland. Great fun!

  114. Thank you for this helpful message. It is a fresh way to pray about the people in the Middle East with emphasis on their love for God.

  115. Thank you.I have been reading inspiring articles about the Holy Ghost, esp. November 2012 Journal, Barbara Cook Spencer's "The Holy Ghost; Antidoting the poison of willpower." Nobody is the helpless victim of depraved will; we are the witnesses to the Holy Ghost/Christ-power "reducing to utter nothingness evil's arrogant demand that a power be acknowledged apart from the energy of divine Love." Let us rejoice (that) the government is on His shoulder and we are all safe in God right here, right now.

  116. What a wonderful lift and so needed today.
    Thank you, dear one.

  117. Thank you Evan... there is ONLY ONE GOD and we are united through the Lord's prayer in "Our Father" and we have the 1st commandment to honor.. "Thou shalt have no other Gods before me." One God governing men and nations.

  118. Thank you Evan. Deus é nosso único Pai-Mãe e Governador. Uma só Mente a governar todas as nações.

  119. I am catching up on Daily Lifts after having been gone several weeks and this one is so urgently needed! The solution is so simple: God is always in control!

  120. Thank you Evan - for reminding us just what we need to hear - One God - always in control!

  121. Thank you so much for this prayer-I especially like the phrase "playing field", as opposed to a "battle field". You probably already know that the Pope has declared Sept. 7 as a day of prayer and fasting for peace in Syria. Christian Scientists fast, not from eating, but from false beliefs of every sort. A special effort to join our fellow Christians in fasting and praying for peace in Syria on Saturday would be a very powerful thing for people to do.

  122. Thank you, Evan for reminding us how God unifies man in love.

  123. Thabk you , all of you who have participate to that wonderfull dayly lift !
