PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May God stand with you when you are uncertain and don’t know which way to turn, leaving you unsure of your path. At those times may you sense God standing beside you, longing for your happiness and gently nudging you toward your truth. May you enter the place within you that hears this God and leads you to that deep-down knowing even in the midst of uncertainty. May the Voice of God lead you and bless you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
