This is the second post in a three part series where I am sharing this writing space with three amazing women, fellow sisters in Christ. These women, all uniquely gifted, share the role of leading my bible study small group each week.

But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
Lord, we pray over each room and ask you to use if for your Glory.
We thank you for your provision and protection.
We ask for your light to be posted at all the doors and windows. Lord we bless the entry way; that it captures all who enter, that their hearts will feel with your immense and unfailing love. That all are reminded of their path and purpose when walking through hallways.
That all are reminded of your physical and spiritual nourishment when they enter the kitchen. That each will be filled with the spirit of appreciation and gratitude. That each living space is filled with hospitality, empathy and extra helpings of patience.
May each bedroom be filled with invitation into a personal relationship with you.
A safe haven to be real and open and honest with you, our Father. A place without fear, only truth. A retreat where you meet each dweller quietly and personally. A place of rest and renewal.
Father, bless the laundry room. A room of work and cleaning that reminds all who enter that we are forgiven our sins, washed away by your sons gift.
Bless each closet and remind us not to forget about things put away. A reminder that you dwell in all places, all corners all crevices.
Lord please bless this yard. Remind all who step foot outside of play and possibility
and of the world at large.
Let each season greet people with its own unique presence and purpose.
Fog, rain, warmth, wind, storm, heat, breeze or drizzle. A reminder that we are not promised all sunny days but we are promised that you are with us in all seasons.
A clear reminder that you are in charge of this household.
And finally we ask that no visitor arrives without a gift and no guest leaves without a blessing.” John O’Donahue, To Bless the Space Between Us.
