Phillips Brooks on What To Pray For

c. 1869. [Quoted everywhere. Source as of yet unfound. ~ Nate]

Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you yourself shall be a miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God.
