When Jesus returns to take us home,
Will you tread those golden streets with me?
And worship at His throne?
Will you walk with me in heaven; or will I have to walk alone?
If I go before you, can I look for you someday?
When Jesus gathers home His children,
Will you have been faithful along the way?
Will you hear the heavenly choir as we stand before His throne?
Or will you hear satanic laughter as you tremble, lost, and alone?
Oh, my children, walk with Jesus now
Then together we can call heaven home someday
Let us worship at His throne.
Come walk with me in glory
I don’t want to walk alone.
Oh my children, walk with Jesus now
He is calling you, will you answer?
Excerpts from a poem by Joyce Ready
6 Amazing Prayers to Make Your Whole House a War Room
I promise you, if you begin praying prayers like this over your home—maybe not these exact prayers, maybe God will lead you to pray prayers and verses that He has laid on your heart—you will begin seeing an amazing transformation in your home.
And you'll stop viewing homemaking as a menial task and begin seeing it as a beautiful act of worship.
As you make the beds, lay your hand on each pillow and pray for each member of your family.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You will bless and keep __________. Make Your face to shine upon them and be gracious to them. Fill them with Your grace and love so that wherever they go, their actions will be a good testimony. Guard and keep them as they are with their friends, that they will stand strong and never compromise their values. Bless them as they sleep tonight; as Your Word says You give to Your beloved even in their sleep.
As you dust the furniture and pick up odds and ends lying around, pray over your family time and entertainment.
Heavenly Father, I pray that our entertainment will glorify you. May we never fill our home with those things that grieve your Holy Spirit. Give us discernment to know when to turn off the TV or computer. Guard our hearts against immorality and protect our lives from the destruction of pornography. Help us to raise our children with godly values and discernment, that they will have the strength to stand alone and walk away, even when all their friends choose to entertain themselves with the world.
As you wipe down the table and chairs, pray over your family conversation.
Heavenly Father, bless the time we spend together as a family. May we encourage one another and not criticize. Fill our home with joy and laughter and our hearts with love, grace and understanding for one another. Even in our disagreement, may we disagree gracefully and with love.
As you wipe down the counters and appliances.
Heavenly Father, Your Word says, "Taste and see that the Lord is good." I pray that as we eat our meals together, that we will also taste Your goodness. May we always be grateful for all You've given us. May our hearts never forget—even in the hard times—that You have blessed us beyond what we deserve. Thank You for our home, thank You for a loving family, thank You for everything You have given us. You have been good!
As you wipe down the sink and mirror.
Heavenly Father, Ephesians tells us how to prepare our Spirits to go to war. I pray that as we get ready each day that we will not forget to get ready spiritually go out into world where we will face temptation and compromise. As we wash our face, brush our teeth, do our hair and makeup, may we remember to also clothe ourselves in salvation, righteousness, truth, the gospel of peace, faith and Your Word, which is on our heart. May we be spiritually ready to leave our home, even as we are physically ready.
As you wipe down your front door.
Heavenly Father, I pray for everyone who walks through this door that they will feel Your love, joy and peace in our home. Fill our home with the warmth of hospitality so that our guests feel at home with us. May our conversations be encouraging, and may we find ways to build up and edify everyone who visits our home. When they leave, I pray that they will be richer for having been in our home.

Lord, I desire and long to dwell in Your secret place - the secret place of the Most High – and to abide under your shadow - Almighty God of Hosts.
LORD, You are my refuge and my fortress, I trust in you my God.
I thank You Lord God because you shall deliver me and my loved ones from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
I thank you mighty God because you cover me and my family with Your feathers, and under Your wings I shall trust because Your truth is my shield and buckler.
Because of Your protection, we shall not be afraid of the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day; nor for the pestilence (sickness, disease/Covid-19) that walks in darkness; nor for the destruction that strikes at noonday.
I worship you Jesus because 1000 shall fall at my side, and 10,000 at my right hand; but it shall not come near me or my family and my loved ones.
Only with my eyes shalt I behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Because I have made the LORD Almighty to be my refuge; the most High to be my habitation; NO evil, sickness, disease, poverty, or any ill befall me or my household; neither shall any plague come near my home.
For JEHOVAH- SABAOTH has given His angels charge over me and my loved ones to keep us in all our ways.
The angels of Elohim shall bear us up in their hands, lest we dash our feet against stones.
We shalt tread upon the lion and poisonous adder: we shall trample the young lion and the dragon under our feet.
Because we have set our love upon GOD, He will deliver us: He will set us on high, because we know His Name Jesus.
We shall call upon Him, and He will answer us: He will be with us in trouble; He will deliver us and honour us.
He will satisfy us with long life and show us His salvation.
PRAISE THE LORD, THANK YOU JESUS. In Jesus Name, amen
John 15:7, KJV “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
Abide in the Word, pray the Word…
