Heavenly Father, you owe us nothing. We owe you everything we own and everything we are. You own the cattle on a thousand hills. You own our homes and our hearts. Help us prepare them for your residence. Grant us wisdom and ability to make them a refuge for others. Improve our hospitality skills. Let us be a conduit of your love in the way we use our homes and our hearts. Bring opportunities to use them for your glory. Forgive our insensitivity to those who may be in need, and prompt us to open our hearts and homes as you would have us do. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“For every beast of the forest is mine, the cattle on a thousand hills.” (Psalm 50:10 ESV)
