Another day has come and I am going to invite this new day in with prayer.
I am not the best prayer warrior, I am not excusing myself but aiming to intentionally work better at praying in the year ahead. So won't you come along as you go through your day and pray with me?
This year, I am going to start a new habit that I should have thought about years ago. I am going to pray as I welcome the day into each room.
Why not ask the Holy Spirit to dwell in each room, to reside in our home today?
I have often prayed the 'blood of Jesus' over our home. There were days when we needed it desperately.
We need to pray for peaceful homes even while it is peaceful because we have an adversary who is roaming about seeking whom he may devour. We are fighting a fierce battle and we need to arm ourselves!!
"Dear Lord, I invite you into my home today. Dwell in our home with the comfort of Your Holy Spirit. May Your presence be evident to each individual who lives here and those who once did. Keep them from ever forgetting Your presence. Keep them from sin.
I invite you Lord to reside in our home and to shine like a beacon to our neighbors. Keep us from conflict and heal us from anything we have ever said and done which has hurt one another.
Lord, fill our living room with your living presence. Bring neighbors to our home looking for encouragement and help in finding the One who resides in our home and hearts.
Please dwell in me as a mom and give me grace-filled responses to my husband and children. Help me to learn to be the sunshine of our home being filled with the JOY of Your Holy Spirit dwelling in my home and the home of my heart.
Dust the corners of my heart and cleanse me from all defilement and sin until I am washed through and through and through with Your precious blood. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen."
