P: God’s peace be in this home.
All: And in all who live here.
P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.
All: Who made heaven and earth.
P: Lord, heed my prayer.
All: And let my cry be heard by You.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: May He also be with you.
Let us pray.
Lord Jesus Christ, as I, in all humility, enter this home, let there enter with me Your peace and Your mercy. Let all wiles of the devil be driven far from here, and let Your angels of peace take over and put down all wicked strife. Teach us, O Lord, to recognize the majesty of Your holy name, and bless what we are about to do; You who are holy, You who are kind, You who abide with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
