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!

O heavenly Father, Almighty God, we humbly beseech Thee to bless and sanctify this house and all who dwell therein and everything else in it, and do Thou vouchsafe to fill it with all
things; grant to them, O Lord, the abundance of heavenly blessings and from the richness of the earth every
necessary for life, and finally direct their desires to the fruits of Thy mercy. At our entrance, therefore, deign to bless and sanctify this house as Thou didst deign to bless the house of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob; and may the
of Thy light, dwelling within the walk of this house, protect it and those who dwell therein. Through
our Lord. Amen.
Translated by Most Reverend J. H. Schlarman Bishop of Peoria

Moving into a new home is an exciting time because it brings new beginnings and hope for dreams fulfilled. Whether you are a newly married couple, a family starting a new journey in a new town or single and buying your first place, take time to breath in the excitement of renewed hope. Allow God’s blessings into your home as you put photos on the walls, remodel the kitchen, invite friends over for dinner parties and celebrate holidays. Seek His council in each decision, from adopting a dog to deciding whether an extended family member will live with you.
Here are the top seven Bible verses for blessing a new home.
7. Let Understanding and Wisdom be the Foundation
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.”
There is a lot of thought, energy and time into creating a home. Sometimes this means you feel like rushing into purchasing furniture, but remember that creating a home is more than what you put into it. Make decisions that are wise and help you sustain your home for years to come. Be understanding of each family member when a plate is dropped, window is broken and garage door is backed into. These things happen and the reactions and forgiveness are the glue that helps bring peace to your home.

6. May God Keep Your Home Safe
Numbers 6:24-26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”
The Lord can bless your new home in many ways. Many people dream about a safe haven that brings peace and happiness. Pray for this over your new home as you get settled in. Find ways to secure your home, such as changing the locks and installing a security system.
5. Welcome God Into Your Home
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.”
The Lord knows all about the new move into your new home and wants to bless it. He is pursuing a relationship with you and your entire family and will help you establish your home if you let Him. Create a sign with your favorite Bible verse and hang it in a place your family will see it each day.

4. Let Your Home be Based on Hard Work
Proverbs 24:27 “Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house.”
You worked hard to earn the money to purchase a home, so continue working hard as you create your home. Let your dreams come true, whether it’s to plant a garden or build an ice skating rink.
3. May Your Home Be Peaceful
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.”
A home is a wonderful thing – something that can be a peaceful haven, but it’s something you have to work to achieve. Allow God to guide you in how to establish and allow your home to become more peaceful each day.
2. May You Dwell In Your Home for Many Years
1 Kings 8:13 “I have indeed built you an exalted house, a place for you to dwell in forever.”
Do you see your home as a place to dwell in forever? God wants this for you, so look for ways that will help you maintain your home for years and years to come. Allow God to establish your home with love, memories, grace and peace.
1. Let Your Home Have Peace
Luke 10:5 “Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’”
Yes, this is another verse about peace! A new home is a chance to create a peaceful haven for you and your family. May God bless you with peace from the first day you move in until the last day your family lives in the home.
A new home can be exciting, but can also bring stresses, so remember these verses as you decide how your household will run. Find ways to make it peaceful and find ways to glorify God in your home. There is a greater reason for why God has blessed you and allow Him to carry out His work through establishing your home.
