“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.

Thank You for leading us to this house. It is wonderful and just right for our family. We didn’t know which house You would lead us to, but we trusted You. I pray, Lord, that as You led us to this house that You will continue to lead us daily. We give You the honor, praise and glory this day!
1st Time Home Owner
Trying to find a home was so exciting! I never imagined having my own home would be so invigorating. Lord, this was a new process and I thank You for putting the right people in my life to make this happen. My realtor was very kind and answered all of my questions to help me purchase this home. As I learn to maintain this home, Father, maintain my heart and help me to always remember that this home is not my forever home. You have a room ready for me in glory! I love You, Lord!
I pray for your blessing on this home. Some problems have risen that I did not see coming and I fear how much money I may have to put into repairing these issues. I know I can fix the minor issues, but the heater is out. Father, I pray that this issue is really an easy, small problem and that I won’t have to purchase a new unit to keep the house warm. Father, give me peace to know that Your blessing is still here even in the midst of uncertainty.
My New Neighborhood
Father In Heaven,
I thank You for this new neighborhood You have led us to. I pray that as you have given us this wonderful blessing for a home that You would also bless our neighborhood. Our next door neighbors seem very kind, Father, and I pray that as we get to know them more and more that You use my family to show Christ to them and the other neighbors close by. I love You!
For Husbands And Wives Only
I thank You for leading my wife and me to this home. It is just perfect for us and for the family we want to have. Lord, I pray for Your blessing on this home that it will one day fill with children for us to love and care for. Bless our marriage, Father. Bless our marriage bed. As we walk with You, we pray that You will bring us closer to each other every day. We love this house and we love You! Bless our future here, Father.
Those With Children
We thank You for this wonderful home You have blessed us with! I pray for each of my kids, Lord, that they will be blessed with many memories to cherish as they grow older. I have so many wonderful memories of my childhood and I pray the same will be said for my kids. Help me, Lord, to be the best mom/dad that I can be for them all. Help me to be the best husband/wife that I can to show my kids and my spouse that they mean so much to me! I am excited for the future in this home and I pray for Your blessing to continue in it throughout the years.
I am truly thankful for this home that You have led us to. Lord, as much as I love this home I place it into Your hands for it really is Yours. Nothing happens without Your foreknowledge. Father, may I be a good steward of this home. Bless my efforts to grow a beautiful family and also a beautiful home. Lord, may this be a home that people know are always welcome, for it is Your home. So, I ask for Your blessing on it. May it be a place of refuge from the cold winter winds. May it be a place of security when my kids/spouse needs a hug or a serious conversation. May it be a place of romance as my husband/wife and I dance in the kitchen and long for one another when we are apart. This home is such a blessing and I will not take it for granted. I love, You!
If you have recently purchased a home, congratulations! Pray for God’s blessing in it and on you as well. May God bless you all as you continue to live a life worthy of the calling!

Your Presence is Heaven to Me by Israel Houghton
I’m a young Christian, from South Trinidad, seeking the wisdom of the Word and God’s blessings on my life. A journey, that’s just begun, but living to the Glory of God.
If you are looking to bless your new build, check out these great bible verses to write on the walls of your new home!
The house is coming along very well friends. Thanks for all the love notes you guys have been sending us via Instagram and Facebook! We are very excited and I’m sure thankful to be sharing this journey with you all!
We had this idea to write bible verses on the studs of our new build long before we broke ground. But after talking to friends and family and YOU, the idea kept coming up over and over. So I knew it was something that we had to do.
We had some great ones in mind that have been special to our family and we also picked up a few here. We also let the kids write some on the walls as well because we really wanted them to be apart of the experience and they LOVED it. They kept wanting to write more and more!! Plus when we visit the house, they immediately go the spot were they wrote “their” verse. It’s so sweet and I’m praying that it will be one of those memories that really STICK. Moving can be a stressful time. It sure has been for us. Doing this has really allowed our family to focus on the blessing and be humbled by the gift that he is giving us. We are in AWE to be here you guys. It’s a dream come true and we pray that we are good stewards of all that he has given us.
Bible Verses to Bless Your Home
But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15
I love this. Reggie and I always say it in away that cracks us up. We’re goofy like that. ” Listen…. ya’ll can do what you want, worship all the gods you want, but as for me and MY house, we gonna serve the LORDDDDDD! Bye.” haha. We had Livy girl and her super cute kinder handwriting write this one on the walls in the kitchen. Stand firm in your faith friends. Serve the Lord and don’t be ashamed to do so!
Proverbs 24:3-4 “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.”
I don’t know if you guys remember but I shared this verse on Instagram a few years ago. It’s still one our our go to verses as we raise our family. We continue to seek his word when it comes to raising our kids and as we make decisions that we know will change the course of our life.This verse to us is about building a strong foundation for our LIFE, not just our home. We all know the story about building your house on a rock.“Everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
Building a house can be compared to building a life. Making sure the foundation is solid as concrete. Laid perfectly with little or no cracks but with a enough tension so that the house settles well over the years. Then comes come the electric, installation, drywall and the roof. All the details that build walls of understanding and knowledge. Precious and pleasant riches can be anything from the coziness you create, your grandmothers dishes, and of course the precious children you raise.
God says the storms will come. Life will hit you. It maybe health, your kids, your marriage or any other relationship you have. The storms will come. But the house that is built on a rock will stand. Praying that we continue to seek that strong foundation for our family.
2 Chronicles 7:15-16 “Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will be there for all time.”
This verse comes from 2 Chronicles and God is speaking to Solomon after he asks God to bless the temple that he built in His name. This is God’s promise to him and answer to his prayer. I want my home to be a place where God dwells. Where his eyes and heart will be for all time!! It reminds me of the song ” Holy Spirit you are welcomed here, come flood this place and fill the atmosphere.” We know that God dwells where ever he wants but the act of humbling asking him to dwell in our home? Yes. Holy Spirt make yourself know in the walls of my home and heart!
1 Samuel 25:6 “And thus you shall greet him: ‘Peace be to you, and peace be to your house, and peace be to all that you have.”
I don’t know about you but I want a peaceful house and I know I can’t achieve that by myself. This a simple blessing prayer to say as you enter any home. This verse is found in 1 Samuel as a blessing and greeting on the household of Nabal before he completely disrespects Davids men:0) We had our little Bear write this one by the front door. Love.
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:26
Basically this reminds us not to worry. Look at the birds and the flowers. All the things our God created. They don’t spend a single day worried about anything because God is taking care of them. But think about this, they aren’t even his most precious creation, WE ARE!! SO shouldn’t we believe that GOD will take care of us even more! Our pastor Greg who passed away last year, always used this verse. Reggie and I knew we had to have this one on the wall right above the huge sliding doors that look into the backyard. Look at the birds…… I love this shot of my hubby and my oldest using each other to make it happen:0)
Here are some other ones that we added….
Hope that you are able to do this if and when you build your new home or even when you remodel! It’s never a bad idea to have to word of God covering your home!
We still have time to add more! Give me one and I will try to make it happen!
If you didn’t have time to write scriptures on your wall or for someone else these scripture decor options make great gifts! We have a few in our home and they are great reminders!
