We live in an evil world (James 4:4). The forces of evil do surround us (Ephesians 6:12). It makes sense then, to ask God for protection (Ephesians 6:13-17). It occurred to me to ask for more than protection for myself and my family; I decided to ask for protection and a blessing for my home.
King David asked for a blessing on his house (including his family line):
Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant. Now be pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever in your sight; for you, Sovereign Lord, have spoken, and with your blessing the house of your servant will be blessed forever.” 2 Samuel 7:28-29
Several Scriptures tell us God wants only good to come to us, including our homes:
May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels. Psalm 122:7
The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalm 121:7-8
No harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:10-12
How do you bless your home? Just pray. Walk the perimeter of your house, and thank God for providing you with a place to live. Ask God to drive away any evil spirit that lurks around your residence. Ask for Angles to be posted at all the doors and windows, and to forbid anything evil from entering your house. Pray in each room. Ask God to use each family member and each room for His glory. Ask a special blessing over each child in their room. Speak out loud, using the authority of the name of Jesus. You might want to end with this verse from Joshua:
But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15b
