Prayer for July 25: Please pray with me. God who prepares a place for us, you are a God of home. You make a home for us – not a home that keeps us apart from people, but a home full of community and love. You prepare a place for us and call us to come home to you. You are a God of hospitality – way beyond our understanding of hospitality. Hospitality isn’t a transaction that happens at a hotel. It isn’t even inviting a dear friend into our homes. It is those things of course, but when it comes to God’s hospitality, it is far deeper. Hospitality touches on our very core – you made us in your image and likeness. Help us to live into that image and likeness in how we show hospitality to others. Amen.
