Brooks: pray for powers

Saturday, August 7, 2010
    Commemoration of John Mason Neale, Priest, Poet, 1866
    [Jesus:] “Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.”
    —John 4:48 (NIV)
    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 the miracle.
    ... Phillips Brooks (1835-1893), Twenty Sermons, New York: E.P. Dutton, 1887, p. 330 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have already created the miracle of salvation in me.
