Prayer at the Founding of a House
0 God Almighty, who hast made the heavens with wisdom,
and hast established the earth upon its firm foundations,
the Creator and Author f all men:
Look upon thy servant(s), (Name), to whom it hath seemed good
to set up a house for his (her, their) dwelling in the dominion of thy power, and to rear it by building.
Establish thou the same upon a stable rock,
and found it according to thy divine word in the Gospel,
so that neither wind nor flood nor any other thing shall be able to harm it.
Graciously grant that he may bring it to an ending; and deliver all those who shall
wish to dwell therein from every attack of the enemy.
For thine is the dominion, and thine are the kingdom and the power and the glory,
of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
now, and ever, and unto ages of ages.
