Blessing of a House

May Christ our True God, who acepted to be baptized by the Holy Prophet John in the Jordon River and who, upon entering the house of Zacchaeus blessed all who were there, bless now this house and all who dwell in it. Grant them health, strength and salvation, peace and prosperity; and grant all their petitions that are for their salvation and for everlasting life. Amen.

Priest: Let us pray to the Lord.

Response: Lord, have mercy.

Priest: O Almighty God, who made the heavens in wisdom and established the earth on firm foundations, the Creator and Author of mankind: look down upon this your servant (handmaid) (Name), dependent upon You, who starts to build a house for his (her) dwelling under the dominion of your power. Establish this house on a firm rock and found it according to your divine word in the Gospel, so that neither wind nor flood, nor any other evil force may prevail against it. Graciously grant that he (she) may bring it to completion. Deliver those who dwell therein from every attack of the enemy.

For yours is the dominion, and yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spkit, now and always and for ever and ever. Amen.

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
