Q:

What is a good scripture for blessing a house?

A:

A good scripture to read during the blessing of a house is Luke 10:5-9, according to the "Book of Blessings." The passage instructs individuals to offer peace to everyone in a house when they enter the building.

The "Book of Blessings" recommends that priests or pastors perform the house-blessing ceremony for church members who wish to give thanks publicly for their new home. Homeowners often invite friends and family members to participate in the ceremony. Psalm 112 is also recommended as a reading or a song. The psalm notes that a man who respects and obeys God enjoys a prosperous house.
