5. There is definitely something different about a house filled with the presence of God! Set aside a time in the next two weeks to pray a blessing over your house. Gather your family and friends, and simply pray a prayer of blessing and dedication for your home. Ask the Lord to fill your home with His presence, and to use your home to further His kingdom. Pray for God’s peace over each room in your house and that every person who walks in your home, especially your family, will feel the presence of God! Celebrate with a fun game night and simple dessert! Take lots of pictures!   Done:______

6. “Sing to the Lord a new song,  for he has done marvelous things” Psalm 98: 1(a).  

Talk to your children about the fact that God loves to hear them sing songs of worship to Him!  Sing songs with your children. There are many children’s praise CD’s that you can listen to in your car. (It’s so much better for your children to listen to Bible/Worship CD’s than the radio:) Our favorites are the “Wee Sing Bible Songs.” Both of our children came to Christ while listening to this CD:) Click here to see “Wee Sing Bible Songs” on Amazon!
