Letters from Prison

My dear friend D. sent this to me today, and I really liked it.

Prayer from Dietrick Bonhoeffer's Letters and Papers from Prison

"God, sometimes we wish for easy choices and care free lives. O give us better desires! By your Spirit make us long not for what is easy, but for the strength to do the hard things that need to be done. And by your Spirit may we seek out not just the tasks equal to our powers, but may we discover powers equal to the great tasks that lay before us."
