“…You Shall Be a Miracle…By the Grace of God”

“Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger people!  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 shall be a miracle.  Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come in you by the grace of God…”

– Phillip Brooks (1835-1893), Twenty Sermons
