Prayer for homecoming

Bless us, most loving provident God,
may this coming home be a re-creation and experience of hospitality and hope.

May all who enter this home, may all who walk through these doors
know and feel your love and presence.

Keeping watch on our going out and our coming in,
no one is stranger, all are guest; no one is alien, all are friend.

May the life celebrated in each room in this house
give delight and honor and reverence to you.
