Rev. Phillips Brooks

Brooks was an Episcopalian pastor and Bishop of Massachusetts. He lived from 1835-1893. I like this quote:

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