7 Top Prayers to Bless Your House, along with Bible Verses

As you move into a rented home or a home that you just purchased, you may be wondering:

  • “What do you say when blessing a house?”

  • “What is the best way to bless a house?”

  • “What scripture should I use to bless a house?”

It is not necessary for a residence to be blessed, but many people like to do so. After all, it is a tradition.

There are no specific things that have to be done, and each person gets to decide if they want to do a blessing or not. God is all you need.

Personally, I like the idea of saying a prayer and inviting God’s presence into the place of shelter He has provided.

Below you will find Prayers to Bless Your House and scriptures to use for this very occasion! May you have abundant peace and joy in your abode. ❤

Prayer for House Blessing and Protection Bible Verse

Ever-Present Lord,

We know that where two or three are gathered

In Your name, You are there with them.

As we come and go, both now and forever.

To protect us wherever we travel.

    Your name will be honored here forever.

    Like Joshua said in Your Word,

    “As for me and my house, we will serve The Lord.”

    Love one another as You have loved us.

    And do everything possible to help them.

    In Jesus’ Name we pray,


    But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15

  • God of Joy,

    May Your protection be upon us in this dwelling.

    We pray that each one of us be quick to listen,

    Slow to get angry, and slow to speak.

    Our desire is to listen to Your teachings and follow them.

    We want to be like the wise man who built his house on the rock,

    And our hope is that others will see Your love in us.

    It is in the name of Christ we pray,


    Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Matthew 7:24

  • Powerful Savior,

    A greater friend than You cannot be found!

    You are the solid, everlasting rock we lean on.

    Thank You for the many blessings You have given us.

    Help us to love our neighbors as ourselves.

    It’s our desire that others be blessed through our hearts and hands.

    We pray that Your peace would be on this house,

    And that we would abide in Your love now and forever.


    Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock. Isaiah 26:4

  • Righteous Lord,

    Thank You for being here with us.

    We pray that we would keep You first in our lives.

    Help us to be humble and gentle, patient with each other,

    Giving grace for each other’s faults because of Your love.

    Please bless and protect us, smile on us and be gracious to us,

    Show us Your favor and give us Your peace.

    May our thoughts, actions, and deeds honor You,

    And may we never forget to show hospitality to strangers.
