Your Spirit lives here, Father, in this fragile and aging tent. I pray your Holy Spirit shines from my countenance and fills my home with your love that captivates my heart. Let everyone who walks through the door know your peace is here. Entice them back for sharing the joy of your presence in fellowship. May a warm glow from the windows invite them to come partake of the hospitality within. May the curb appeal of the outside speak in harmony with your will. Let the community know that Jesus lives here. Teach me the ways of generous hospitality. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, who invites us to come, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.” (1 John 413 ESV)
