Jesus Invade (Thanks, Olu)

In a couple of hours, we'll sign the lease on our house! My prayer for the house has been, is, and will be that it is a home dedicated to God. Like Hannah's surrender of Samuel, he gave the house to us as the answer to our prayers and we give it back to him.

My prayer is captured perfectly by Watermark's "Invade":

Come in, invade all you see of us
Any man who walks your road is welcomed here
And you’re the only one

Jesus, come and walk the halls of this house
Tread this place and turn it inside out with your mercy

Jesus, teach us the prayers that open these doors
Until your light floods in and illuminates these floors

And let your truth be on our steps and in these rooms
Jesus invade

Reach in with the hand that heals all our suffering
Conquer all that is not of you, bring your Spirit through
As we fill these walls with your praise


Amen.
