Praying over our Homes

Updated: Sep 5, 2021

In the seasonal shifts as we change our home decor, it's a great time to pray over our homes.

My sis-in-law and I have even done "prayer walks" through our houses, praying over each room and its purpose. This practice has been especially meaningful as we've prayed over our boys' bedrooms, layering protective petitions over their hearts and minds as we stood in the midst of the daily chaos left behind after they had trudged off to school.


Consider doing a #biblequiltjournal page to collect scriptures to pray over your home and family. An easy way to get started is by using the Home template my sis-in-law designed a few years ago.

You can choose attributes you'd like to cultivate in your family.

Or you can select scriptures for those who will be gathering in your home throughout the years.

You may decide you'd like a more personal page. If so, then consider using a photo of your home and/or family gathered in your home.


Recently I did a home page with a loose photo that had been pinned to a bulletin board since we moved into our home several years ago. (Bonus: this gave me a meaningful place to put the photo while I was decluttering for the fall rather than adding it to a stack of random photos that I'd have to begrudgingly deal with later.)

Since Joshua 24:15 is a popular verse, you may already have a sticker or card with this scripture on it that you can use as an embellishment.


I used an oversized tag to make my "home" tab for this page and tied a piece of leather to it for added texture.

I didn't have a key sticker, so I placed my actual house key on the page for the photo. You could trace a key if you like that as an image.


I'd love to hear ways that you incorporate prayers over your home as you transition through the seasons. Leave us some ideas or your favorite home scriptures in the comments below!
