The following is a prayer that Nona Brooks, co-founder of Divine Science, adapted from Hannah Moore Kohaus’:

“No Other Gods”

“For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God; serve him only.’” Matt 4:10

The first commandment of God requires that we have “no other gods before me.” We know not to worship statues and graven images but there are also much more subtle false gods. In our daily lives, we so easily fall into habits and schedules and vain repetitions that gradually but completely take over our time and attention. Soon enough we find ourselves in bondage to the things of the world.

Serving God is both the “what” and the “how” of our deliverance. The Prophet Jeremiah tells of the way out of bondage in these words: “Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will harken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, and I will turn away your captivity.” Jeremiah 29:12-14

Most Wondrous God, all honor, praise, glory and thanks be thine forever and ever. Amen.
