PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU – May you be blessed with the Wisdom of God who fills your heart with vision so that you may see all things with the eyes of God. May you have the wisdom and knowledge to discern God’s desire. May you be drawn to a deeper awareness of God’s activity in your life. May you give voice to that wisdom as you enter into communion with all God’s people. May the God of Wisdom bless you.
