four: house prayer
[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [index] [embody]

  This exercise is similar to prayer walking, but here you can pray around the rooms in your house and ask for God's blessing. I do this occasionally in my house, and especially if I move to a new house.  

1. This exercise is good to do with a group, as prayer with other people can be especially powerful.

2. I light a candle and move from room to room, stopping to pray in each.

3. In each area I pray these words from the Night Office of Celebrating Common Prayer:

Visit, Lord, we pray, this place,
and drive far from it the snares of evil.
Let your holy angels dwell here to keep us in peace,
and may your blessings be upon us evermore;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
