Bless this House
Day 6

ה He

33 Teach me, Lord, the way of your decrees,
    that I may follow it to the end.
34 Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law
    and obey it with all my heart.
35 Direct me in the path of your commands,
    for there I find delight.
36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
    and not toward selfish gain.
37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
    preserve my life according to your word.

At first I did not see the correlation between the titles of the devotions and their reference to Psalm 119, but after six readings, I think the light is beginning to dawn in my understanding....Psalm 119 was central to the faith of Celtic Christians...Using it to praise God and also to request His help, the Psalm can be applied for all things in daily life.  

Today the poetry and prayers all spoke about God's grace for the home.  Home meaning a place where one resides and but also a place you share with God.  

"Bless this house O Lord I pray
Keep it safe by night and day"  
                    Helen Taylor and May H. Brahe

To live a strong life of faith in God,  you must have a home where God is the center.
