A Prayer For Our Homes this Christmas

Lord, thank you for the gift of home.
It's so much more than
walls and ceilings, windows and doors.

It's also a place we hold in our hearts...
We feel it in the love of family.
We hear it in the laughter of friends.
We find in the life of faith You bring.
We invite You in the places we dwell.
Please, fill our room with your love,
every corner with Your peace,
and each moment with Your joy.
May we live in Your grace,
and may all who enter our doors
be blessed by You in a wonderful way.
Wherever we are, make that place
truly a home that reflects Your heart
as we live, laugh, and love together.
