Welcome to this 31 day series where we will spend 31 days covering our homes in PRAYER!! We are also reading Radical Hospitality: Benedict’s Way of Love together and each day I will share a new quote from this amazing book. PLEASE join us in the comments section as we journey through learning to love others as Jesus loves us!
Verse to Pray for Our Home
I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
Jesus, these are big shoes to fill. You’ve shown us true love. We confess the pride, fear and selfishness in our hearts that keep us from loving others as You love us. We repent, we turn to You…help us to love.

I would LOVE to hear from you in the comments! How are you liking the book? What struck you the most??
“Our preparations for others remind us that we are not alone in the world. Not only are we not alone, others are counting on us.” Radical Hospitality, p. 156
This goes along with the quote and discussion from yesterday, but I thought it was too good not to share.
When we invite others into our homes and hearts, we learn that we are not alone. If we will but simply listen carefully to others, we will learn that we aren’t the only ones to struggle. We aren’t the only needy ones.
We need each other.
And that’s what hospitality SHOWS us and also AFFORDS us. When we invite others into our homes and hearts we are no longer alone.
Hospitality cures loneliness.
