A Blessing on Our Homes

home-door-800O Provident God,
we ask that you bless and protect our homes
and all who come and go from them.

May our homes be filled with welcome
for family and stranger alike.

May our homes know joy, laughter, support
and acceptance within their walls.

May all homes filled with illness or grief
feel the warmth of your compassion and care.

May all homes filled with anger and abuse know
your healing and return to right relationships.

May all homes filled with financial stress know
relief from such burdens and worries.

Increase in us a desire to be one
with You, with one another and with all creation.

Amen.
