The Prayers of Presidents

Most of us don’t know about it or choose to ignore it, but each Saturday the President gives a radio address, a fairly short speech on what’s going on in Washington and what he thinks the priorities should be.

Last Saturday, President Obama ended his address with a quote from President John F. Kennedy:

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.

Substitute “work magic” for “pray” and you have a very good Pagan approach to life.
