At the end of an entry like this, instead of just a link to your generic OGL, you need to add a line for the section 15 and a comment that the material is OGC. To wit -

"WONDERS OF DIVINITY: Sanctify Yourself is open game content and is available for use under the terms of the OGL. To use it correctly, please add the following line to the section 15 of the OGL linked below-

WONDERS OF DIVINITY: Sanctify Yourself copyright xxxx (year) (person or company)."

Then add the OGL link as you already have. Without the section 15 reference line and declaration of Open Game Content it is not proper use of the license and is nigh useless as a part of the OGC pool.
