Prayer Guide

Contribute to the needs of the saints, pursue hospitality. — Rom 12:13 NET

Certainly, let the board be spread and let the bed be dressed for the traveler; but let not the emphasis of hospitality lie in these things. Honor to the house where they are simple to the verge of hardship, so that there the intellect is awake and reads the law of the universe, the soul worships truth and love, honor and courtesy flow into all deeds.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

Kind actions, and good wishes, and pure thoughts

No mystery is here: Here is no boon

For high—yet not for low: The smoke ascends

To heaven as lightly from the cottage hearth

As from the haughtiest palace.

~ William Wordsworth ~

Gracious Father,

I beseech thee to give me wisdom for kind thoughts and deeds. Teach me true hospitality, that I may be gracious in my own home and appreciative in the home of others. May I not temper my hospitality for certain reasons, but have a genuine welcome for all.

Amen.
