A House Blessing

December 18, 2010 | My Jottings

May God give a blessing to this house.
God bless this house from roof to floor,
from wall to wall,
from end to end,
from its foundation and in its covering.
In the strong name of the triune God,
all disturbance cease,
captive spirits freed,
God’s Spirit alone
dwell within these walls.

We call upon the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
to save, shield, and surround
this house, this home,
this day, this night,
and every night.

I read this prayer last night and something inside of me leaped up and shouted “Yes! Yes! For my home, for my family, for my neighbors, for my friends, for this city, for this country, for the world…yes!”

So today I share these simple but powerful words and pray them for my home, for the homes of those I love, for your home and for the homes of your loved ones.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

God bless your home…

    Thanks, Julie. I write from my 7×7 monk’s cell in the far end of the Arizona Room, content and filled with gratitude.
    God bless my little box. Keep warm.

  2. Just Julie says:

    What is an Arizona Room, Lloyd? And thank you for visiting. It’s below zero this morning and I know you don’t miss it.

    I love it! I have been known to pray blessings over my house and/or rooms in our house. I will write this one down and use it! Thank you!
