Vintage Gwen Chapel-Prayer For The Home

So I've been thinking about my new house a lot.  Surprised?  I'm just so excited because technically it's my first purchase.  I can't wait to make it a home.  Not just 4 walls but a safe, peaceful, place of comfort for not just us 3 but for all who enter.  I looked in my Prayers That Avail Much book and found this awesome prayer to share.  I would love to have you join me in praying this over our homes.

The Home

Father, I thank You that You have blessed me with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus.

Through skillful and godly wisdom is my house (my life, my home, my family) built, and by understanding it is established on a sound and good foundation.  And by knowledge shall the chambers (of its every area) be filled with all precious and pleasant riches-great priceless treasure. The house of the uncompromisingly righteous shall stand.  Prosperity and welfare are in my house in the name of Jesus.

My house is securely built.  It is founded on a rock-revelation knowledge of Your Word, Father.  Jesus is my Cornerstone.  Jesus is Lord of my household.  Jesus is our Lord-spirit, soul, and body.

Whatever may be our task, we work at it heartily as something done for You, Lord, and not for men.  We love each other with the God kind of love, and we dwell in peace.  My home is deposited into Your charge, entrusted to Your protection and care.

Father, as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord, in Jesus' name. Hallelujah! Amen.

May the Lord bless your home!!
Happy Weekend!
