As a wife, mom, and homemaker, there are so many things that I desire to have in my home: Service to God, love, peace, safety, hospitality, and grace, just to name a few. Before we go out into the world each day, our home is our starting point.
I want this place to be so saturated with prayer, Scripture, and service that evil has no opportunity to invade. When my husband comes home each evening, I want him to be greeted with an abundance of peace and love.
I want to be able to sense God’s presence here every single day.
Talk about homemaking goals, right? If you’re anything me, a house that sounds a dream come true!
So how do we begin to cultivate a home full of God’s goodness?
One way is to saturate your home with prayer through regular prayers walks. Use this time to lift up your family and home in prayer to our Lord. Trust Him with every aspect of your home, seek His Will, and commit to following His lead.
What’s a prayer walk?
A prayer walk is just it sounds! You take a walk through a building or area, praying over each part as you go. This can involve thanking God, asking for blessings, and requesting protection.
How exactly do you take a prayer walk through a home?
Start on the outside of your home, pray over each window and doorway. Once you’ve done that, start praying inside your home. Pray over each room, your family, and visitors that come into your home. Use prayers that praise God as well as asking for any specific needs your home and family may have.
You can do a more formal prayer walk each week and a more informal version daily, praying over each room as you go about your daily routine. Find a structure that works for you and commit to regular prayer walks through your home.
Pray that your home be built on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:24-27, 1 Corinthians 3:11).
Pray for your family to serve God (Joshua 24:15) and glorify Him in all you do (Psalm 115:1).
Kitchen and Dining Room
Thank God for His provision (Matthew 6:31-32).
Pray that your family’s true nourishment comes from God (Matthew 4:4, John 4: 13-14, John 7:37-39).
Pray for the Salvation of each family member, if they have not already committed their lives to Christ (John 3:16).
Pray the Armor of God over each family member (Ephesians 6: 10-18).Pray that your family finds rest in God (Matthew 11:28-30, Psalm 4:8).
Pray for each family member to exhibit the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
Pray for peace between within your family and those around you (Romans 12:18).
Pray for your home to be a welcoming place where you can host and serve others in the name of the Lord (1 Peter 4:10, Hebrews 13:2, 1 Peter 4:9).
Pray that you work as if for God and not for man (Colossians 3:23).
Pray for hearts of financial stewardship and giving that glorify God (Deuteronomy 16:17, 2 Corinthians 9:7).
Pray that you and your family do not develop a love of money (1 Timothy 6:10, Matthew 6:24, Hebrews 13:5).
Doorways and Windows
Pray for protection from evil and its influences (2 Thessalonians 3:3, 2 Samuel 22:3-4, James 4:7, Isaiah 41:10).
Pray for a peaceful home full of God’s presence (Hebrews 12:14, Philippians 4:6-7, John 14:27).

Pray This Prayer To Reverse Unjust Situations
Are you going through something unjust right now? If so, I believe this blog post contains a WORD for you today. God is ready to send you help from Zion.
Just recently, God has had me intercede for two different families who were going through unjust situations
Both situations were completely unrelated, but they were both horrible too. Nevertheless, God is the Divine Reverser of All Things Horrible.
A Prayer to Change the Spiritual Atmosphere of Our Homes – by Radiant
Thank you, Radiant, for sharing these prayers with us!
Ladies, these prayers are designed for you, who are in Christ, to pray out loud with boldness over your life, marriage, home, and family. (If you don’t know if you are in Christ Jesus, please check out this post first):
Thank You that You are here with me and You love me. I receive that You died for me to be transferred the Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light. You rescued me and adopted me into Your family to love on me now and forever. As a Christian, this is the Truth, no matter how I am feeling today.
I confess that I have allowed lies, negativity, fear, anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, my “rights,” being right, performance, perfectionism, pride, a judging/critical spirit, trying to “fix” others, depression/despair, and/or my relationship ruts to allow hurt, guilt, unrest, and problems into my heart, marriage, home, kids, and relationships. I ask Your forgiveness for that. Forgive me for continuing to be plugged into darkness, Self, and people as my source and identity and as what I look to instead of looking to You and rejecting evil.
Thank You that when I confess my sin to You, You are faithful and just to forgive me my sin and to cleanse me from all. I receive that I am forgiven and free
I want to change this pattern and atmosphere starting today. I believe You can do this as I ask, seek, and knock – but help my unbelief!
In Jesus’ Name, I confess that I am a daughter of the Most High. I am the Bride of Jesus – the Beautiful One who is Faithful and True
You have spiritually already seated me in heavenly places with You. I am held close to Your heart at all times. I am deeply and infinitely loved and pursued by You. I am washed with the all-powerful Blood of Jesus and Your Spirit is in me, always connected to me.
Nothing can separate me from You and Your love – not even me. You have anointed me with a calling and purpose in Your beautiful Kingdom. You have crowned me with Your love and compassion. You put a crown on my head that says “Holy to the Lord.
” I put that crown back on today even though I am not used to wearing it.
In Jesus’ Name – Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit – I invite You in to every part of my spirit, heart, mind and body. Wash all of the dark, cold, unbelieving, fearful, and hurting places in me with Your love and grace.
I go back in time with You – all the way to when I was conceived – and I receive that You were always there with me, loving me and holding me – even when I abandoned You or accused You of abandoning me. Even in the worst moments of my life – You were still holding me and loving me.
And You have healing for every one of those moments and scars in me.
Jesus, fill all of me up with Your Holy Spirit.Thank You that He has already been in me since I was saved, but thank You that You love to give us fresh fillings of Your Spirit to heal, set free, and show Your power and love in and through us.
I ask You to reveal anything that is blocking me from hearing Your voice and receiving good things from You in Jesus’ Name. (I confess anything that comes to mind and receive forgiveness).
I invite You into my home, Holy Spirit
Forgive me and my family for grieving You and being filled with, and worshipping other things instead of You. Please fill every room in my home. Cover my home with Your glory and protection and surround it with Your angels who encamp around those who fear You.
I dedicate my home, our rooms, our possessions, our computers and devices, our land, and our vehicles to You for Your kingdom and Your glory.
Wash away anything any of us, or people on this land before us, have done that has caused strife and torment and darkness to feel at home in this place.
Thank You that the husband is the head of the wife, and that Christ is the head of the husband. I declare that Jesus is the head of my husband –and He is leading him into all truth (if my husband is not saved yet, I invite God to draw him to Himself because He already loves Him as His own beloved son).
Give revelation to him of Your love. Open his eyes and ears and heart to You. I ask for the Spirit of wisdom to be on my husband. Send Your love and grace into every hurt place, scar and wound in my husband’s spirit, mind, heart and body. I ask for Your vision of him – what You are calling Him to be and to do.
I receive Your heart and eyes for my husband.
I speak Your love and protection over all of my kids in Jesus’ Name. Call to them and pursue them Jesus
Show them Your goodness – help them taste and see how much You love them. I break generational curses and sins on us from 4 generations back (things fear, abuse, addictions, anger, idols) on both my side and my husband’s side of the family.
I tell every place that hasn’t been lined up with You in all of us to receive the reign of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I speak Your rest and peace to rule over this house and each of our hearts and relationships. I receive Your heart and eyes for my children.
I ask to see them how You do – and to see what callings You have on them.
I receive that I am anointed and equipped to be the mom and wife my family needs as I stay close to You and soak up Your wisdom and love
Thank You Jesus that You have given us choices. Today, blessings or curses, life or death is set before us. We have power in our thinking and words and choices to choose Life and blessings. That is what You are so lovingly calling us to choose. We choose You today, Jesus!
Thank You for all of the heavenly assignments that have just been released by Your authority as I have prayed Your heart and will and kingdom into our home. I give all of these loved ones into Your hands and I rest in Your provision for each need. Thank You that You are speaking Light into every darkness.
