We're welcoming back campers!

Join our Prayer Watch today by applying an Isaiah GEM for Health Care workers and all who serve! God promises they will be upheld! Being upright they’ll be able to keep serving to the delight of God’s soul!
“Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.” (Isaiah 42:1, citation B11)

Cobbey Crisler on Isa. 42:1 (B11)
“Chapter 42:1 is a prophesy of a servant who should come, the “elect of God” who would have “the Spirit of God upon him.” You will notice in Verse 7 – and in Isaiah 61:1 – what the assignment of this servant would be, “To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, [and] them that sit in darkness out of the prison house (W: or shelter-in-place or self-quarantine).”

Isn’t it interesting that the prophet Isaiah foresees this prophesied individual in the terms of “a servant” when the Greek word most often in the New Testament for healing has the classical Greek meaning of “to serve.” You remember how Jesus defined his ministry in those terms, “I came not to be ministered unto but to minister” [Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45]. Healing is serving by definition in Greek. Serving whom? God and man.”

[Warren: These prophesies in Isaiah foretell the coming of God’s healing servant, Christ Jesus. But the verse in our Bible lesson also says that God’s servant(s) and healer(s) will be upheld. That is a promise that we can affirm in our Global Prayer Watch specifically for health care workers and for all exposed these days to the CoVid-19 virus in their work to restore freedom and harmony in our communities and our world for all citizens.

Florence Nightingale, a famous wartime nurse in the Crimean war, was cited by Mary Baker Eddy as a great example of the immunity and endurance that God gives to all who provide care for and serve others.

Mary Basker Eddy wrote: “…Florence Nightingale and other philanthropists engaged in humane laborers have been able to undergo without sinking fatigues and exposures which ordinary people could not endure. The explanation lies in the support which they derive from the divine law, rising above the human. The spiritual demand, quelling the material, supplies energy and endurance surpassing all other aids, and forestalls the penalty which our beliefs would attach to our best deeds… Constant toil, deprivations, exposures, and all untoward conditions, if without sin, can be experienced without suffering. Whatever it is your duty to do, you can do without harm to yourself.” (Science and Health, p. 385:2)

[W:] MANY wonderful resources are being shared daily with great healing content for our Global Prayer Watch for World Health 2020. Check out in JSH-online an excellent Journal podcast by Janet Horton, a retired US Army Chaplain. She gives context to the above passage by sharing a brief biography of Florence Nightingale and her tireless labors for the soldiers during the Crimean War. She also shares an example of the pulling together and protection that she and others in the Pentagon demonstrated when it was bombed on 9/11.

[W:] Chet Manchester, CSB, had an excellent “Daily Lift” yesterday (March 23, 2020) called Gathering spiritually, calming pandemic fears

[W:] Norm Bleichman, CS, also addresses today’s concerns perfectly in today’s excellent “Daily Lift” (March 24, 2020) called Consent controls contagion.”

[W:] As I was praying to see as divinely protected all the world’s front-line, health care providers, including all dear Christian Science nurses—and all patients as well, I continued to read page 395 in the chapter, “Christian Science Practice.” I found especially helpful the paragraph with the marginal heading of “Mental Quackery.” It also relates very well to our Christian Science Bible Lesson on “Reality” when it says: “It is mental quackery to make disease a realityto hold it (the coronavirus) as something to be seen and felt—and then to attempt its cure through Mind…. Mental practice, which holds disease as a reality, fastens disease on the patient and it may appear in a more alarming form.” (SH 395:21)


[W:] Please ask others to join us whenever they can for a few moments in prayer at the top of each waking hour and for a 1-hr. Prayer Watch daily.
To make your commitment official, please email "I'm in!" if you haven't already.]
