A prayer to bless your house

“As we pass through this door, draw us more deeply into your presence.”

The door is one of the most important parts of our home. Through it we come and go, receive visitors and say goodbye to old friends. It is a place of sadness and joy, departures and entrances.

That is why it is a place where we should invite God’s presence, asking for his protection over it and our home.

One of the most common ways to do this is through the traditional Epiphany blessing of the home. However, that is not the only way to invoke God’s blessing upon your home and door.

Below is an alternative prayer that can be prayed by anyone, simply asking God to shower his blessings upon the primary portal of your home.

God’s peace be to this home and to all who dwell within. You, O Lord, are the beginning and the end, the alpha and omega, carefully watching over us from birth until death. Bless this door of our house and in your goodness send your holy angel from heaven to watch over and protect us, to be with us and give us comfort and encouragement.

As we pass through this door, draw us more deeply into your presence and may a spirit of humility, goodness, mildness, and gratitude prevail here. 

O Lord, you are the door to eternal life, bless our entrances and exits from this home and pour out on us heavenly dew in good measure, as well as an abundance of earthly needs. At our lowly coming be pleased to bless and sanctify this home, as you once were pleased to bless the home of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Within these walls let your angels of light preside and stand watch over those who live here.

May this blessing remain on this place and on us who live here now and always. Amen.

Father God, the God who is in Heaven, the God who created the Heavens and the Earth, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in Israel, the one true living God, the Father of Jesus Christ, the God who said, “Let there be light” in the beginning and there was light. Father God, this is a prayer going up to you to bless the house where this prayer is being played. Father God, we want you to do a deep cleansing, a deep blessing over this house. Father God, to do this blessing you have to first remove the cursing so, Father God, I ask you now to search this house where this prayer is being played. Do a search. I want you to look at the house. If there are any demons hovering over this house, if you find and see any demons lurking in the roof of the house, if you see any demons following the persons living in this house, if you see any demons in the rooms standing/watching the persons in this house, if you see any demons abiding in any of the objects that’s in this house, if you see any demons in the mirrors, if you see any demons under the ground of this house, Father God, if you see any demons living and abiding in this house, Father God, identify all of them. Make records of how many and start sending in armies of Angels to fight off and to destroy these evil spirits living in this house. Send your Angels right now, Father God. Have your Angels to destroy every single demon that has been hovering over this house and living and abiding in this house where this prayer is being played.
Father God, every organization that these demons have formed when they were in this house and abiding in this house, every little thing they used to gain access in this house, any type of portals, doorways, destroy them, Father God.
So after you bless this house it will not be cursed again. Father God, after your Angels have defeated and removed every single demon that was around and abiding and living in this house, quickly put a shield over this house where this prayer is being played. This shield is to protect of the demons that Satan might send to re-curse this house. The demons will not be able to get through the shield. Father God, have Angels, other Angels, outside the body of the shield that’s outside this house so if any demons try to even come near the shield, your Angels will prevent them from even touching or trying to penetrate the shield to get through.
Have those Angels, Father God, be standing guard. Father God, spill the blood of Jesus Christ on the ground of this house. Have the blood of Jesus to remove every corruptible thing, all curses that have been placed on the ground that this house is on. Have the blood of Jesus Christ to break those curses. Release the full power of the blood of Jesus Christ on the ground of this house was built on. Father God, take the blood of Jesus Christ and pour it on the roof of this house destroying every curses and corruptible thing that was placed or that was abiding in the roof of the house. Father God, take the blood of Jesus Christ and put it on every door in this house, every bedroom door, every kitchen door, every basement door. Every door in this house, put the blood of Jesus Christ’s seal on every door, even the front door of this house.
Father God, you cease control over this house. No longer are Satan’s demons in charge. Father God, since you are in control and now that all the evil spirits have gone and removed, and are removed now, now you can start to bless. Father God, put your hand over this house. Put your hand over this house, Father God, and let your anointing power and glory flow from out of your hands throughout this whole house. Bless it, Father God. Send blessings to this house. Make this house become a magnet for blessings in every way, in every form. Pull, Father God, pull nothing else but blessings to this house where this prayer is being played. Father God, let the blessing not stop. Let the blessing be continuous and continuous, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I thank you, Father, for blessing this house in Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.

Two Methods:Religious BlessingSpiritual BlessingCommunity Q&A

You have finally moved into your new house. It is perfect in every single way, and you want it to stay that way. If you are a religious or spiritual person, you might find that blessing your home brings you great peace of mind and serenity. No matter what your religious or spiritual beliefs, start with Step 1 below to find out how to perform a house blessing that appeals to you.

Method 1 Religious Blessing

  1. a prayer to bless your house Perform a Christian blessing.

    The blessing of a Christian household is an ancient tradition which can be found in the Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic churches, amongst others. The blessing may be performed by an ordained priest or pastor, or by the owner of the house themselves.

    • If you would prefer to have your house blessed by an ordained priest, invite him to your house to perform the blessing, and he will be happy to oblige.
    • Normally, the priest will walk from room to room, sprinkling each with holy water. As he walks, he may recite one or more passages from the holy gospel.
    • If you prefer to bless the house yourself, use anointing oil (which can simply be cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil, blessed by a minister) to mark a cross on each of the windows and doors inside the house.
    • As you mark the sign of the cross, utter a simple prayer asking God to bless the room. For example “In the name of Jesus Christ I ask for Your peace and joy to inhabit this room,” or “May Your Holy Spirit flow through and fill this home up with Your Spirit.”
  2. a prayer to bless your house Perform a Jewish blessing.

    There are an abundance of Jewish traditions associated with moving into a new house, or simply blessing an old one.

    • When moving into a new home, Jewish families are required to affix a mezuzah (parchment inscribed with Hebrew phrases from the Torah) to each of the doorways in the house.
    • As the mezuzah is installed, the following prayer is recited “Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to affix a mezuzah”.
    • It is also believed that Tuesday is the best day for moving into a new home, that bread and salt should be the first items to enter the house, and that shortly after moving in a Chanukat Habayit or housewarming party should be held, where friends and family gather and words of the Torah are spoken.
    • During the housewarming party, it’s tradition to eat the first fruit of the new season while reciting the shehecheyanu blessing, as follows: “Blessed are You, L-rd our G‑d, King of the Universe, who has granted us life, sustained us and enabled us to reach this occasion.”
  3. a prayer to bless your house Perform a Hindu blessing.

    Hindu house blessings vary greatly according to different regions. In some places the housewarming ceremony is second in importance only to a couple’s wedding day.

    • However, across all regions the house blessing must be performed on the morning the homeowners move into their new home. An auspicious move-in date must be chosen by the local Hindu priest, who must also perform the ceremony.
    • On the day, it is traditional (in some regions) for the homeowners to supply a gift tray or dakshina for the priest’s use throughout the ceremony. This gift tray usually contains items such as raw, washed rice, mango leaves, ghee, coins, herbs, spices, fruit and flowers, among others.
    • During the ceremony, the homeowners will often sit in front of the fireplace, wearing their best clothes and repeating mantras. The priest will usually recite a prosperity prayer to the Hindu gods, asking for prosperity, purity and serenity to be bestowed upon the people of the house.
    • Contact a priest at your local Hindu temple for information on how the housewarming ceremony is performed in your region.
  4. a prayer to bless your house Perform an Islamic blessing.

    Muslim people bless their house mainly by reciting prayers – usually there is no official ceremony that needs to be performed. However, certain prayers and traditions are recommended:

    • Upon moving into a new house, it is a good idea to perform a two cycle prayer, asking Allah to bestow baraka (blessing), rahma, (mercy) and dhikr (remembrance) upon the home.
    • You can also recite a prayer to protect your home from the evil eye and the envy of others using the following Prophetic Supplication: “I seek refuge for you in the perfect words of Allaah from every devil, harmful thing, and accusing eye.”
    • It is also recommended that you invite your friends and family over for dinner, as feeding others is viewed as a charitable act, and a way of showing gratitude to Allah. At this dinner, you and your guests may recite passages from the Qur’an together.
    • Aside from blessing your house when you first move in, you can also bless your house every time you step through the door using the following prayer: “I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of that which He has created”. Repeating this prayer three times will ensure no harm comes to you while you are in the house.
  5. a prayer to bless your house Perform a Buddhist blessing.

    In Buddhism, a ceremony known as

    Khuan Ban Mai is performed (in certain regions) when a new house is built to protect the house and its inhabitants. The ceremony is performed by a group of nine monks, who must be invited to the house early on the morning of the ceremony.

    • The monks then perform a ritual involving sacred lustral water and wax candles. As the wax melts and drops into the water, it is believed to wash away evil and sorrow.
    • The monks also chant prayers in the Pali language, while passing a white string through each of their hands. The vibrations from the chanted prayers are believed to pass through the string, protecting the houses and its inhabitants.
    • After the ceremony, the monks sit down to a meal prepared by the host family and their friends and neighbors.They must finished their meal before noon. Then one monk sprinkles holy water in each of the rooms of the house, before they all leave.
    • Once the monks leave, the rest of the guests sit down to eat the remaining food. In the afternoon, they perform the thread ceremony, where the guests wrap a white thread around the homeowners and offer them their blessing.

  5. a prayer to bless your house

    Walk to each room of the house and state your intention for it. After the blessing, you may want to carry the pink candle into each room of the house and state your intention for it, whether it’s the bedroom, the baby’s room or the kitchen.

    Allow the pink candle to burn for an hour. When the ceremony is complete, place the pink candle in a central location in the house and allow it to burn for at least an hour.

Tips

  • You might like to put in some holy pictures into your house.
  • It would also be very fitting to have a little party afterwards to celebrate the blessing.
  • Smudging is also a great way to increase positive energy in your home. You need a sage smudge stick (or other variation of a smudge stick but sage is most common) and to burn and wave the smoke throughout the entire home.
  • The Spanish have an old custom of hanging crosses above bedroom doors, to scare away evil spirits and protect the people in the house. If you are Christian, this is a good idea, if you live in a house with a painful past.
