“The Stranger within our gates”

Some years ago I picked this prayer up at a hotel where I was staying. I know that all of us are not in the hotel business, but this needs to be our prayer for our customers so our business can serve them and not just take their money.

In ancient times there was a prayer for

“The Stranger within our gates”

Because this hotel is a human institution to serve people, and not solely a money making organization, we hope that God will grant you peace and rest while you are under our roof.

May this suite and hotel be your second home. May those you love be near you in thoughts and dreams. Even though we may not get to know you, we hope that you will be comfortable and happy as if you were in your own home.

May the business that brought you our way prosper. May every call you make and every message you receive add to your joy. When you leave, may your journey be safe.

We are all travelers. From birth till death we travel between the eternities. May these days be pleasant for you, profitable for society, helpful for those you meet, and a joy to those who know you and love you best.
