 "Prayer for Protection"  by James Dillet Freeman
      The light of God surrounds us;  The love of God enfolds us;
      The power of God protects us; T he presence of God watches over us; 
            Wherever we are, God is!

"All power is given unto you in all the affairs of mind and body. Exercise your God-given power, authority, and dominion and rise out of the bondage to conditions of lack and discord." ~ Myrtle Fillmore

"To bless is to invoke good on that which is blessed. It is to confer God's good on something or someone. Therefore I bless my body temple, and declare its purity and strength and beauty. I pour out upon my body temple the oil of love and clothe it in garments of praise." ~ Charles Fillmore

"As you learn to see the fullness of God's life and love and power and substance in others, you will know that you need not pour out your own for them. You will have the knowledge and the light to call their attention to what they have and to prompt them to use it." ~ Myrtle Fillmore
