Bless This Home …

Bless this home.  May its windows catch the sun and its doors open wide to friends and loved ones.  May each room resound with laughter and may the walls shut out troubles and hold in warmth and cheer.   May this home be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams in the night. May it be a home where love has come to live.

Bless this doorway.  Bless and protect the goings and comings.   May all who come to it be treated with respect and kindness.

Bless all the rooms of this house.  May each of them be holy and filled with the spirit of happiness.  Protect us as we stay awake and watch over us as we sleep.  May this home blossom with love, goodness and generosity.

Bless this living room.  As we gather in this room to share friendship, may love and peace never be strangers within its walls.  May the spirits of mirth and laughter, hope and faith, playfulness and prayer, compassion and love be perpetual guests in this home.  May the spirit of pardon and forgiveness reside with us and be always ready to heal our divisions.

Bless the kitchen and the dining room.  As you fill the hungry with good things, send your blessings on us as we worry about what we will eat and drink.  Teach us to share with others what we receive through your generosity in the spirit of thankfulness.

Creator God of Light and Love, be our shelter when we are at home, our companion when we are away, and our welcome guest when we return.  Send your abundant blessings upon this house, now becoming a home.

Amen.

  1. I love this prayer! I’m going to use it on Epiphany to bless our home. I also love the prayer you posted today. For 2011 I have a motto to help focus me throughout the year. This year I chose BE BRAVE, and the prayer seemed so appropriate. Thanks for all your great resources!
