A Prayer of Blessing

I’m always on the lookout for prayers that are new to me. Old prayers that have been said in cathedrals around the world, new prayers freshly written by a devoted believer, and prayers pieced together trying to make sense of the greater reality of life. I recently discovered this prayer written by a sister in the Dominican order and I want to share it with you today.

A Blessing For You

May the God of the poor be with you, emptying you over and over again of all pretension, violence, or greed. May you come to recognize and reverence your empty spaces as dwelling places for God. Into the simplicity of your life may God pour all the riches of love and Divine Presence so that you in turn may be love and presence to those you meet. May the God of the poor, the God of Dependence, be with you. Written by -- ©Maxine Shonk, OP
