The ministry of Jesus occurs in many different homes. Therefore to hallow the home as an environment for nurture and renewal, is a deeply felt need by many Christian households.
The blessing of a home encourages Christians to dedicate their life at home to God and to others.
Some people think it superstitious to believe that God would bless objects and places; but if we remember that he is setting them aside for a special, holy purpose, the concept is not one of magic but of holy mystery. God wants to bless his people. Often he does so directly. And sometimes he blesses objects and places as well and uses them as a means of blessing us. The following blessings are for all homes whether simple or spacious. So no matter where you live — house, apartment or student residence – these blessings are for that place. And remember: “Better is a little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble with it” (Proverbs 15:16, RSV).
