In Our Hearts



"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 shall be the miracle."
                                                                                                                 Phillips Brooks

However did you find this quote? I am going to keep it in my heart because it is exactly what I needed to hear today, Mary.

I don't know what more to say other than now I know what to pray for.
