How to bless your home . Set the tone by playing calming music, and ask everyone to stand in a circle. Welcome and thank your friends and family for being a part of this special occasion. Light a pink candle (pink brings the energy of love and kindness) and pass it to each new person, who then shares a blessing .
Not exactly. All Christians believe that only God can determine whether a person belongs in heaven or in hell. Entreaties on behalf of the deceased can ‘t sway God from what’s right, but post-mortem praying does have other uses. He therefore brings himself closer to God and closer to salvation.
Prayer to Come Together to Overcome Lord of light, I pray that unity may prevail in my community . Help me to be an instrument of Your peace. Help us in the city to come together to resolve the issues that affect us all. Help us cooperate well in overcoming health issues and prejudice.

1 Samuel 25:6 “And thus you shall greet him: ‘Peace be to you, and peace be to your house , and peace be to all that you have.” I don’t know about you but I want a peaceful house and I know I can’t achieve that by myself. This a simple blessing prayer to say as you enter any home .
First open all the windows and doors in your home or apartment. If you have fans, turn them on — you want as much airflow through the space as possible. With your cup of water near by, light the end of the smudge stick and blow it out (just like incense) – it should be fairly smokey.
She also told me about when they set up the tabernacle: “Take the anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and everything in it; consecrate it and all its furnishings, and it will be holy,” (Exodus 40:9, NIV). We work hard to keep our homes in order and to keep food on the table.

Intercession of the dead for the living Aquinas quotes Revelation 8:4: “And the smoke of the incense of the prayers of the saints ascended up before God from the hand of the angel.” Jesus’ parable of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:19–31 indicates the ability of the dead to pray for the living .
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Intercession or intercessory prayer is the act of praying to a deity or to a saint in heaven on behalf of oneself or others.
Dear Father, I pray that as leaders, lead Your people, I pray that they will not do it selfishly, for personal ambition or vain conceit. I pray that You help leaders to realize that leading is really a task that requires them to serve. So, Father, raise up servant leaders, in Jesus’ name. Help them to work in humility.
Loving heavenly Father, We come to you this hour asking for your blessing and help as we are gathered together. We pray for guidance in the matters at hand and ask that you would clearly show us how to conduct our work with a spirit of joy and enthusiasm. Give us the desire to find ways to excel in our work.
