Christian Devotional – August 17, 2012

VERSE:
Isaiah 56:7–“Even those I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar; for My house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”

TRUTH:
People come to the Lord and they are bringing themselves and their offerings. God says they will be accepted and that His house will be called a house of prayer. Jesus quotes from this passage later during His ministry when He throws out the money changers from the temple. Do we treat God’s house as a house of prayer?

RESPONSE:
Lord, Your house is holy as You are holy. Your house is a place of refuge for all and there people can come to pray. Help me to always focus on You and on prayer to You when I come into Your house.
