Prayer For Anointing Your Home

Home is where the heart lies and it is to be guarded. Every person should remember that. This is why you are advised to pray for your home to be anointed by the Almighty God. As you dedicate your heart, mind and body in total trust, faith and obedience with God, this will help make sure your family stays safe and protected as you continue with your daily living. In this article we’ll discuss prayer for house blessing and protection bible verse.

Most of us, in the natural world, will do what we can to keep our families safe. As a precaution, we use locks or other forms of security. But what about the spiritual defenses of our homes?

Protection from all harm, including disease, assault, crime, tornadoes, and fire, is guaranteed to you through the blood of Jesus and Psalm 91. But it is not always guaranteed that God will protect you. In order to have God as your safe place, you must take certain steps.

Anointing your home with oil is a religious practice that is meant to invoke supernatural defenses. Anointing with oil is a sign of trust in God’s sanctifying power and a symbol of the Holy Spirit’s efficacy in making things righteous. It’s a way to show God how much He means to you by making your house into a temple. This article also shed light on prayer to anoint oil.

Anointing Your Home — Darby Dugger

Prayer For Anointing Your Home

Dear Lord,

We come to you today to ask for your blessing on our home. We want to live in a place that is full of the love and joy that you have given us. We thank you for the blessings of our home, but we also recognize that there may be some things that need to change in order to make it more holy. Lord, we are grateful for your wisdom and guidance as we seek to improve our home and make it a place where you can dwell with us.

We ask now for your Spirit to anoint our home, so that it will be a place of peace and harmony, where we can feel the presence of God in all its rooms. We ask you to bless every person who walks through these doors or spends time here—your children and grandchildren especially! We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Lord, we come to you in this moment, asking that you would anoint our home. May it be filled with your peace, love, and joy. We ask that you would bless this place with your presence and bring healing to all who pass through it.

We know that there are many things in our lives that need to change. So we ask that you would reveal those things to us so that we can change them. Wherever there is pain or suffering, may your light shine upon it and bring peace to the people involved. Wherever there is darkness, may your light shine upon it and banish it from our lives forever.

Lord, we thank you for hearing our prayer and asking for what we need today as well as what we need every day from now until eternity!

O Lord, I ask you to bless my home with your presence.

Cleanse it of all evil influences and fill it with your peace.

Let the peace of Christ be present in my home, so that all who enter may feel your love and be drawn to you.

Grant that I may love my neighbor as myself, and that any discord between us may be resolved for the sake of love.

I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen


We come before you in prayer to ask that you would bless this home. We pray that you would send an angel to walk through these walls and consecrate them with your holy presence. We ask for your protection, that you would watch over us and keep us safe from harm.

We ask for your grace, Lord, so that we might remember to give thanks for all the blessings we have received, including this home. We thank you for our family and friends who are here with us today and for the many blessings they bring into our lives. And we also thank you for all those who cannot be here today: those who have gone on before us and those who are far away from home now but still very much in our hearts.

We pray that you would help us see beyond ourselves and see the needs of others around us—especially those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Help us to serve them as we have served each other today by giving freely of what we have been given so freely by God’s grace: time together with family and friends; food shared among neighbors; even simply kindness offered up freely without expectation of repayment or return favor.

Dear Lord,

We thank you for your presence in our home. We know that you are always with us, but we ask that you would bless this space today. We ask that you would infuse it with your love and light, and let it be a place of peace and safety. Please be present here now, as we gather to share in this meal. We ask that you would guide our conversations and bring us closer together.

We praise you for the ways in which you have guided us in the past year, and we ask for your continued guidance as we move forward into this new chapter of our lives. Thank you for all the blessings in our lives, and thank you for this time together. In Jesus’ name we pray—amen!

Dear God,

I know that you walk with me through every step of my life. I thank you for being with me and guiding me on this journey.

I pray that you will bless this home and make it a place of peace and harmony for all who dwell within it.

May this home be a safe haven for all who live here, especially our children and grandchildren. May we be reminded of how precious life is and how precious our relationships with one another are.

I ask that you would help us to appreciate each other more and give thanks for the gift of family as we celebrate Thanksgiving together as a family today.

Dear Father, we come before you with heavy hearts today. We know that many of your children are suffering from the effects of Hurricane Dorian. We pray for those who have lost loved ones, homes, and livelihoods. Lord, we ask that you would send your angels to protect them from evil and guide them through this time of difficulty. Bless those who have been placed in positions of leadership and responsibility during this time. Give them wisdom and courage to care for their community members who have been left without basic needs such as food and water. We pray for all those who have lost everything at this time and place our trust in You, knowing that You will provide for them in their time of need.

We know that there is still much work to do as we clean up after Hurricane Dorian passes through our area. Help us as we try our best to help others while they are going through a difficult time in their lives. May we be kind and compassionate toward each other as we share resources with one another so that everyone can get back on their feet again once this storm passes over our community!

Prayer For House Blessing And Protection Bible Verse

Joshua 24:15 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.”

Wonderful! You have boldly proclaimed your house serves the LORD! Now step just inside your home and read the next verse:

Luke 10:5-6 “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you.

You are claiming the peace of God for your family, and because you are a believer, His peace will rest on your house. Continue to walk though the rooms of you home reading the next ten verses.

—Remember to save the final two verses to read last, again standing right here just inside your front door.

Psalm 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.

Say, “The LORD built my house!”

Isaiah 28:16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.

Say, “Thank you, Lord, the cornerstone for my home is indeed—Jesus!”

Psalm 91:1-2 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

Say, “Thank you, Lord, my family finds rest through You in our home.”

Proverbs 3:33 The LORD’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.

Say, “Thank you, Lord, for blessing my home and may we always follow Your ways!”

2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.

Say, “Thank you, Lord, for your strength and protection over my home.”

Psalm 115:1 Not to us, LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.

Give God the glory for things He has done in your home for your family.

Isaiah 32:18 My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.

Say, “Thank you, Lord, for peace, security and calmness in my home.”

1 Timothy 6:17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

Say, “Thank you, Lord, for all the riches You provide for my family, not by our hands but by Your mercy and grace we acknowledge this.”

Then make sure to explain to your family that God alone is the Great Provider.

Mark 5:19 Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”

Remember to share with your family great things God has done in your life, and how they too can trust in Jesus.

2 Samuel 7:29 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.”

Say, “Thank you, Lord, for what your word tells us. My family stands firm in faith for all You have done and all you will continue to do as we remain Your steadfast servants.”

Now, again just inside your front door, read what Matthew states happens to the wise men who build their house on Jesus the rock.

Matthew 7:25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.

Don’t think that because Jesus is with us that evil will not attack. On the contrary, the rain will come hard to destroy your home, the streams will rise high to drown your family, and the winds will try to beat you down. Jesus never promised us an easy life.

What He promises is when those storms do fall upon us—we will remain standing because our faith is firmly planted in Jesus and He alone will get us through!

Say, “Thank you, Jesus, You alone are our protection, our comfort, our support against the storm of evil forces.

After king Solomon consecrated the new temple to the LORD, the LORD spoke to Solomon:

2 Chronicles 7:15-16 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.

Prayer To Anoint Oil

The traditional purpose of anointing oil is to make one holy in the eyes of the Lord. This sacrament is performed in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and is enacted through the recitation of a prayer. To help you pray properly as you use anointing oil, here are some examples.

The Highest Honor and Thanksgiving Prayer
Dear Lord, Your Word instructs us to seek out the church’s elders and have them pray over us and anoint us with oil when we are afflicted with illness. Dear Father, we are consecrating this oil for the purpose of anointing the sick members of our congregation. Please bless it with your healing presence so that we may use it to your honor. Your name will be praised as the sick are restored to health. In the name of Jesus Christ, we ask this, Amen.

The Absolute Perfection of Your Result Prayer
Lord Jesus, thank you for taking our place at the scourging post. Thanks to your selfless act, our physical bodies have been restored, revitalized, and healed. I pray that this oil used in the anointing will serve as a reminder of the completeness of the work you accomplished on the cross, O Lord. Let its use on the sick be a testimony to your rehabilitative abilities. Those who are bound by mental anguish, substance abuse, physical suffering, or social rejection, may you find freedom. Whoever is anointed with this holy oil, may they be blessed with your grace and strength. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

The Prayer for Freedom
God our Father, we praise you for the miraculous oil you have given us to anoint the sick. Let the same power that raised Jesus from the dead fill this oil, Holy Spirit of God. Let those who are anointed with this oil experience complete healing from all ailments. Pray for their deliverance from servitude and enslavement. Lord, give them the courage to use their newfound liberty to honor You. With faith and thanksgiving in Jesus Christ, Amen.

Restorativeness and Regeneration Prayer
Sacred Lord, may this holy oil be a physical representation of our trust in your divine healing power. To happiness, health, and completeness in all that we do. Protect us from harm, God, and keep us safe in your goodness and mercy. In the same way that you used your resurrecting power to bring Jesus back to life, Holy Spirit, please restore the full health of all the body’s organs and systems for those who will be anointed with this oil. Father, those who are ill will be restored completely, starting at the top of their heads and ending with the soles of their feet. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Concrete Icon Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, we pray that your Holy Spirit will be present in a mighty way as we anoint ourselves with this oil. Please keep in mind that it is only a symbol of our trust in your atoning death and restorative power as we use it. As we apply this oil, we pray that your son Jesus will restore our health and grant our wishes. Infuse us with your restorative power, and may our wholeness bring honor to your name. In the name of Jesus Christ, we ask this, Amen.

Consecration Prayer
Father, we come before you today to dedicate the servants you have chosen to lead us. May your Holy Spirit fill this place and each of these leaders with his presence that they may be full of power and wisdom to lead us in a way that is pleasing to you, just as Moses anointed Aaron and his sons with oil. Only Christ’s love should rule their hearts as they assume their new responsibilities. Give them the grace to serve you, God, and not men. With faith and thanksgiving in Jesus Christ, Amen.

Invocation of Love
Please, Lord, anoint whoever this oil touches with the power of your Holy Spirit. Please, Lord, have mercy on them and deliver them from their troubles. Infuse them with your unending love, and wrap your loving arms around them. Keep their minds and emotions clear of doubt and fear, and direct their attention to the atoning work of Jesus Christ on the cross. I pray that God will give them the strength to resist the devil’s attempts to use lies and fear to take away the healing that Jesus won for us at Calvary. Please hear my prayer, offered in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Helpful Invocations
Holy Spirit, guide us as we anoint people with this oil, and fill them with your resurrection power so that they may serve you in the world to come. Improve the health of the sick so that they can rise to their feet and give praise to the one true God. Bring light into their lives so they can overcome anxiety and despair. Help them to overcome any mental barriers the devil has erected. Light a fire in their souls and grant them everlasting rest. With faith and thanksgiving in Jesus Christ, Amen.

Unleashing Emotional and Mental Blocks Prayer
A Father’s Love, I, your servant, am anointed with this holy oil. Let all the bad things that have been weighing down your servant be lifted off his shoulders today. Lord, I make this proclamation and issue this decree in the name of Jesus Christ, by the power that he has given us believers. We appreciate your delivering him from his previous enslavement to poverty, illness, depression, failure, bitterness, and sinful habits. In the name of Jesus Christ, we ask this, Amen.

Restoration Prayer
As I anoint your children with this oil, please bless them with contentment and rejoicing, O Lord. Forgive them, and set them free from the grasp of their adversary. Permit them to feel completely revived as this oil is rubbed into their forehead. Assist them in giving in to your will, even if it goes against what they want or expect. Put an end to any further access the adversary has gained to their lives, whether by their own doing or through their carelessness. Take away all resentment and hostility, and replace it with your love and peace. Lord, make their mourning into laughter, and their beauty from their ashes. With faith and thanksgiving in Jesus Christ, Amen.
