Chapter eighteen in The Power Of Praying Parent book by Stormie Omartian is about praying through your child’s room. The Bible says that if we bring anything detestable into our homes, we bring destruction along with it. A holy housecleaning should be done periodically as a matter of principal, but definitely whenever you feel troubled by something in your child. If your child is becoming fearful, rebellious, angry, depressed, distant, strange, a disciplinary problem or having bad dreams and nightmares, sometimes praying through the room can change things quickly. Singing Christian songs, hymns, and worship choruses in the room is also very effective and I have seen a change of spirit in my children after doing this.
Stormie Omartian’s book recommends removing anything that is not glorifying God from your child’s room when you pray through it. Such as posters, books, magazines, pictures, games, or articles of clothing depicting drug or alcohol use or any blasphemy. This isn’t a superstitious little ritual. This is a powerful claiming of your home, your child, and all aspects of his life for God. It’s standing up and proclaiming, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” It’s saying, “My home is sanctified and set apart for God’s glory.”
Scripture: All these promises are made to us, my dear friends. So then, let us purify ourselves from everything that makes body or soul unclean, and let us be completely holy by living in reverence for God. -2 Corinthians 7:1
Prayer: Holy Spirit, please dwell in our home and each room in it. Let no spirits of fear, depression, anger, doubt, anxiety, rebelliousness or hatred find any place in this home. Put your complete protection over this home so that evil can not enter by any means. Fill this home with Your love, peace, and joy. I pray that you will make this home a holy place, sanctified in your glory. In Jesus name. Amen.
