Divine magic (the Power) was magic granted from prayer with the gods.[1]

While divine magic could not function without the Weave,[2] spellcasters who used divine magic had no ability to manipulate the Weave directly.[1] Clerics, druids, rangers, paladins, and blackguards predominantly used this type of magic.[1] Although in actuality, druids received their power directly from their patron deities, they often thought of this power as coming through nature.[3] Only deities with a direct tie to nature could provide spell power to druids.[4]

When a divine spellcaster used such magical power granted him or her by the gods, often a tangible feeling of appreciation was felt by the caster, manifesting in different ways depending on the patron of the practitioner.[1]
