“Mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.” Isaiah 56:7
Although this verse refers to the temple of God, it also applies to our individual homes, which should serve as houses of prayer for our family and friends.
I’ve often noticed that a few moments after entering a home, the spirit of the occupants becomes obvious.
Some homes are neat and tidy on the exterior, but upon entering, the spirit of strife and conflict are evident. Other homes are peaceful but feel cold, empty and void of love.
As Christians, our homes may be quiet or noisy, but the presence of Holy Spirit will be present. The dinner may have scorched, the children whining, yet in the midst of it all, our homes are a place of prayer, a place of comfort and peace, a refuge for anyone who might be in need.
The spiritual health of the occupants of a home, is most always evident in the atmosphere of that home.
Therefore, let us all strive daily to make our homes a blessing and place of refuge for all who pass through its doors and for our individual family members who reside there too.
