Emma Curtis Hopkins shares her inspirational thoughts and Christian Science. She says you don’t need to understand, just do the practices. To her the practices proves themselves in the scientific application. Based on our book, Scientific Christian Mental Practice. The fourth practice is also filled with inspirational thoughts and Christian Science.
She asks that you sit down by yourself and honestly and lovingly read out loud these 12 covenants:
“I hereby covenant with the Holy Spirit for my life, and I will do nothing to preserve my life; my life is the life of the spirit.
I covenant with the Holy Spirit for my health, and I will do nothing to preserve my health; my health is the health of the Spirit.
I covenant with the Spirit for my strength, and I will do nothing for my strength; my strength is the strength of the Spirit.
I covenant with Spirit for my support, and I will do nothing for my support; my support is the providence of the Spirit.
I covenant with the Spirit for my defense, and I will do nothing for my defense; my defense is the protection of the Holy Spirit.
I covenant with the Spirit for my mind in its perfect thinking, and I will do nothing for my thoughts; my mind is the mind of the Spirit.
I covenant with the Spirit for my right speech, and I will do nothing for my speech; my speech is the voice of the Spirit.
I will do nothing to fix, or record, or write my Truth unto the earth, for my record is the record of the Holy Spirit. I say, as Job said, My witness is in the heavens, and my record is on high.
I covenant for my joyous song of life, and will do nothing to be joyful; my joy is the joy of the Spirit.
I covenant with the Spirit for my demonstrations of efficiency and skill in rightly doing all things, and I will do nothing to protect myself. My efficiency is the working skill of the Holy Spirit, according to the words of Jesus Christ, who said, “The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself, but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.”
I covenant for my judgement in its beauty, and the beauty of judgment; and I will do nothing to make myself greatly good in judgment; for the Spirit is my judgement.
I covenant with the Holy Spirit for my love, and will do nothing to make myself loving or beloved, for all is the Holy Spirit now acting with irresistible goodness through me.”
After reading the 12 covenants it’s good to follow up by saying the following affirmation as recommended by Emma Curtis Hopkins.
“I do believe that my God is now working with me and through me and by me, to make me omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. I have faith in God. I have the faith of God.”
I recommend you do this practice daily until my next post on Emma’s daily practices.
To Your Highest Good,
