This is a prayer that I photocopied a while back. I am not sure who wrote it originally. I have it hanging on the inside of a cupboard door in my kitchen to remind myself that this is my desire for my home.
Dear Lord, thank you for my home. I ask that You fill it with your Holy Spirit. Even when I don't have time to polish and dust, may it still shine with Your welcome and love, so that whoever comes in my doors senses that You are present.
Please help me, God, not to fill my home with irritation and frustration; help me not to think that because I'm in the privacy of my own home, I can indulge in uncharitableness. Instead, may my husband and my children and I hand grace back and forth to each other. Amen
