PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU – May God empower you in your weakness. May you find strength in the God who lifts you up when you feel deficient and breathes courage into your spirit when you are afraid. May you find strength in the love God has for you and may you grow into the very creation that God intended in breathing life into you. May you in turn encourage and strengthen the weak ones around you. May the God of Strength bless you in your weakness. –Maxine Shonk, OP
