Prayers to Pray Over Your House: 15 Powerful

Prayers to Pray Over Your House: 15 Powerful

Every house is built on a foundation. The strength of the foundation determines how strong the building will be.

If the foundation is strong, it withstands the test of time. But where the foundation is weak, it is easily destroyed.

Hence, the Bible says that only a foolish man builds on the sand.

On the other hand, a wise man builds on the rock; for the believer, this rock is Jesus. He is the firm foundation upon which we set our house.

We make Jesus the firm foundation of our home with prayers and supplication.

And I have provided prayers to pray over your house, so you can build a hedge of covering over your house and family.

Fill every corner of it with your glory, and let your presence bring us freedom. For where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom and liberty.

So set us free from evil and ill-health. Let affliction and death be far from our dwellings now and always.
