A prayer in his wallet

David Carr Before

Now he’s the “new media” editor of the New York Times.

He used to be a “functioning addict.”

This inteview with David Carr is interesting in a lot of ways. 

David Carr: The News Diet Of A Media Omnivore : NPR
David Carr, who writes the Media Equation column for The New York Times, says that despite cuts, the future of journalism has never looked brighter. "I look at my backpack that is sitting here and it contains more journalistic firepower than the entire newsroom that I walked into 30-40 years ago," he says.

David Carr, After

“I put my addiction on my resume.”

He’s interesting and smart, but also he’s honest.

He talks about being forthright with this employer, the NY Times, at about minute 24:30

The prayer.

Around minute 31:20, he begins to talk about this prayer, and how he says it even though he feels hypocritical doing so. A man after my own heart. 

God, I offer myself to Thee-to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of life. May I do Thy will always!”


He says he thinks the prayer comes from Saint Francis, but actually it’s from the “Big Book,” and was probably written by Bill W.


“If you cannot pray sincerely, offer your dry, hypocritical, agnostic prayer;
for God in His mercy accepts bad coin.” Rumi
