A Prayer for Iraqi Dominicans
(posted September 11, 2006)

The following prayer was written by Rene Weeks, OP, a Dominican Sister of Great Bend, Kansas, for our Iraqi Dominican Sisters during their retreat from September 1-8, 2006. Please continue to keep the Iraqi Sisters in your prayers.

God of all nations and all people,
God of the frightened and of those in danger,
God of the bold and the courageous,
We pray with our Dominican Sisters in Iraq
During these days.
May they feel surrounded by the prayers
Of their Dominican family.
Give them the wisdom to know how to live,
How to minister, what word to preach in these days
When they are in such danger and their country is torn apart by war.
God, our world needs the miracle of peace.
Teach us all to be peacemakers.
We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
