A House of Prayer

Yay!  March is here!  I'm possibly way to excited to be entering into the spring months.  Winter is my least favorite season.  So when I see the first signs of spring, I may uncontrollably do a happy dance. 

Speaking of March, my 2nd installment of Happy Email's went out this morning.  Have you subscribed to get my monthly newsletter?  If not, hit that Sign Me Up, Buttercup! button that pops up or send me an email.  I would love love love to include you in our Happy Emails.

Now that I've gotten a bit of house keeping out of the way, I wanted to share with you an experience I had this weekend.  Don't worry, it's totally home related.

Saturday, I was able to participate in a Prayer Mosaic that we held at my home church.  It was a beautiful morning of gathering with women and spending some time in the quiet solitude of prayer.  If you are a mom of a toddler, you know how difficult a quiet moment is.  So I was very thankful to be able to participate and spend some uninterrupted time with God.

One of the prayer stations, or my favorite station, dealt with our homes.  There was a blue print of a house drawn out on the floor (much like the one below) and we were able to walk through the home and pray over each specific room.

This is a great activity to carry over into our actual homes.  If you have a chance this week, take 5 minutes or so and walk through your house, praying over your entire home.  Here are just a few thoughts I had in each room.

  • Living Room - Family Unity, Teaching, Sabbath/Rest,  
  • Kitchen - Service, Nurturing my Family, Food/Things God Provides
  • Dining Room - Guests that grace our Home, Providing/Hosting
  • Office - Running of our Home, Finances
  • Bedroom - Relationships, Rest
  • Closet - Hidden Sins, Daily Quiet Time
I hope this exercise in prayer fills you with peace and reflectivity much like it left me.  I pray that God blesses you this week. 


  1. Shea - What a great idea of praying over each room of our home and with specific things to pray for. That is awesome that they had a home drawn on the floor too. Brilliant idea!
