Prayer of Blessing
for the Household
Father, as the priest and head of this household, I declare and decree, “As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.”
Praise be to You, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for You have blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. We reverence You and worship You in spirit and in truth.
Lord, we acknowledge and welcome the presence of Your Holy Spirit here in our home. We thank You, Father, that Your Son Jesus is here with us because we are gathered together in His name.
Lord God, Your divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of You Who called us by Your own glory and goodness.
As spiritual leader of this home, I declare on the authority of Your Word that my family will be mighty in the land; this generation of the upright will be blessed.
Father, You delight in the prosperity of Your people; and we thank You that wealth and riches are in our house and our righteousness endures forever.
In the name of Jesus, amen.
