Praying Over Your Home


We know the value of cleaning our home in the natural on a regular basis, but might not always think about the spiritual atmosphere and the need for regular “spiritual house cleaning”.  Here’s a great prayer by Jane Glenchur from her book, “Seven Secrets to Power Prayer.”

“I release the Kingdom of God into my home – life, peace, health, love, hope and joy.

Lord, love my family through me.  Be patient through me today.

In Jesus’ name I bind all spirits of division, strife and disunity.  I release a spirit of unity into the atmosphere of my home.

I cover the doorposts of my home, my family and our possessions with the blood of the Lamb.

Lord, hide my family under the shelter of Your wings.

Lord, I take refuge in You.  Be a wall of heavenly fire around my family.

Lord, command Your angels to protect my family.

No weapon forged against my family will prosper.

I am an overcomer.  Anoint my family with the oil of the overcomer.

Lord, please remove any obstacles or roadblocks the enemy would try to put in my family’s path today. Amen”

Let’s get to “cleaning house” today1


  • Great suggested prayer. Reminds me of a friend who use to manage a storage rental facility. Each night as he walked around the perimeter locking up he prayed for the business and he prayed the Prayer of Jabez.

    Sometimes before worship I go into our sanctuary and pray pew by pew for the people who will be sitting there that day. I have also moved seat by seat in Sunday school classes before praying for the participants who will becoming. Often times I would pray for them by name because being creatures of habit I pretty well knew who would be sitting where.

    I am not sure whether there is or isn’t anything innately good or effective about sitting in someones spot to pray for them. But, the discipline of moving seat to seat slows me down tremendously; so, that I spent a much more concentrated time praying. Again, thanks.

    • Love it! Thanks for sharing, John!
