Text of The Teaching of Children and The Prayer of Faith by Myrtle Fillmore
TruthUnity note: I have not seen any publication of the text of Myrtle Fillmore's The Teaching of Children. So the following is a transcription I made from this recording. There are a few places where her words were unclear and I am sure there are some mistakes. I will be grateful for anyone who can help provide the true words of this talk. - Mark
Humanity is coming intellectually to recognize and claim an omnipresent God. But the individual concept of the omnipresence of God does not enable man to make practical use of his great light. The understanding and realization of God being the very mind and life and substance of man's earthly existence must be as much of man's consciousness as are the human relationships.
We must learn to know that God is spirit and that his spirit within us is a motive power which carries us forward in every department of our daily living. Children should be taught that God is spirit and that the purpose of their being is to express God. They should be trained in the faith and understanding which makes them to know that they express the spirit of God in every thought and desire and action.
The child's mind accords perfectly with true ideas and it is easy to rear children in conscious unity with God when they are encouraged through their faith to claim their sonship. Teach them to pray this prayer of faith:
God is my help in every need;
God does my every hunger feed;
God walks beside me, guides my way
Through every moment of the day.
I now am wise, I now am true,
Patient, kind, and loving, too;
All things I am, can do, and be,
Through Christ the Truth, that is in me.
God is my health, I can't be sick;
God is my strength, unfailing, quick;
God is my all, I know no fear,
Since God and Love and Truth are here.
