How to Anoint Your Home
Read Psalms 91
Through the blood of Jesus and Psalm 91, you are promised protection from every danger—sickness, disease, assault, crime, tornadoes, fire and any other threat to your safety and well-being. But God’s protection is not automatic. There are things you have to do in order for God to be your refuge.
“And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.” –Isaiah 10:27, NKJV
Exodus 40:9 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
“Get the anointing oil. Anoint the holy tent and everything in it. Set apart the holy tent and everything that belongs to it. Then it will be holy.
Exodus 40:9 Common English Bible (CEB)
Then take the anointing oil and anoint the dwelling and everything in it. Make holy the dwelling and all its equipment, and it will be holy.
Luke 10:19 "Behold, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy and to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and nothing shall injure you."
Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."
One way to appropriate your faith for supernatural protection is to anoint your home with oil. Oil represents the power of the Holy Spirit and is a symbol of faith in God’s ability to cleanse and make holy. It is an act of consecrating your home to Him.
All you need is some oil (olive, sesame, canola, etc). When you pray over or consecrate the oil, it is set apart and becomes anointing oil. Pray that God make that oil Holy and consecrate it as anointing oil.
After you have prayed over the oil, follow these steps:
1. Remove anything with evil roots from your home.
This can be books, movies, clothing with certain pictures or symbols, or objects that have a connection to wrong spirits.
2. Set the atmosphere to invite the Holy Spirit.
Play Worship music. Start to worship God. Pray aloud in every room. Invite the Holy Spirit to fill every inch of your home. Pray that only His will be done and that everything that is said and done in your home will be pleasing to Him. Plead the blood of Jesus over each room and your family. There is great power in the blood of the Lamb!
3. Get the family involved if possible.
4. Open up the main doors of your home.
5. As you do these things, place oil on the frame of every door and windows in your home.
Do this by faith, believing and receiving God’s supernatural protection over your home and family, but do not anoint the main door yet.
Pray this prayer:
"Jesus, by faith I anoint this home, windows and doorways and declare them all holy unto you and ask that You would cleanse this home of every unclean spirit and human spirit that does not belong here. I rebuke the power of darkness and any attempt of the enemy against my home and my family. In the name of Jesus, Satan, I bind you, I bind you hindering spirits, I bind you spirits of the prince of the air, I bind you evil forces, I command you to take your hands off of our spirits, souls, bodies, hearts, minds, emotions, and material things, off of my children, the cats, the dogs and this home. I bind your mouth and your power and command you, in the Name of Jesus, that every evil spirit in this house leave through this unanointed door, FOREVER, and EVER, AMEN!
6. Anoint the frame of the last door and close it, then Pray this prayer:
LORD we sanctify and seal our home and invite Your presence to dwell in our home
FOREVER, and EVER, AMEN!
7. Lastly, anoint your spouse and children.
Pray this prayer:
"Jesus, by faith I anoint me, my spouse, and my children. Jesus, I pray for the anointing of your blood, the surrounding and a hedge of protection of Your mighty warrior angels and the overshadowing power and protection of Your Holy Spirit over me, my spouse, the children, and ask that You would protect us from any attack of the enemy whether in spiritual or physical form, in Your name, Jesus, amen."
If you feel the need to re-anoint your home occassionally, you will only need to open the main door, command the evil spirits to leave, anoint the door again and ask the LORD to seal your home, inviting His presence back in your home.
How can you fill your atmosphere with the Word of God?
Try these simple, but powerful, ideas at home:
Load an MP3 player with the entire Bible. Connect it to small desktop speakers and place it in the main living space of your home. Set it to ‘repeat’ and let it run on low volume 24 hours a day, seven days a week. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, the Word of God is being spoken into the atmosphere of your home!
Speak the Word of God out loud as you go about your daily tasks.
In addition to these, make prayer and quiet time with the Lord a priority every day. If you’ve been facing any challenges in your home, you will see a shift in your atmosphere when you invite Him to dwell in every inch of your home!
