I had a friend ring me up the other day asking for prayer. She was feeling an evil presence in her home and she could sense it hanging around her. I first of all prayed for her while we were on the phone together and then instructed her on how to anoint her home and pray through it, in the authority and the name of Jesus Christ.
What I am sharing with you today, I have gleamed through my friends who are prayers and what they have shared with me from their experiences and knowledge, as well as what I have read and put into practice myself.I realised after my friend hanged up that many in the body of Christ have no idea about their authority as a believer and their need to act on it in their own homes. I have taken for granted something that has become second nature to me.
I have prayed through many homes over the years, for my own homes that I have lived in and at the invitation of others when things have gone bump in the night. As Christians we have been given all authority in Jesus name over the unseen evil forces that exist. It is now up to us as believers to exercise what has been given to us! Mark 16:17, Acts 1:8, Eph 1: 18 -23.
First you need to get some olive oil, if you don’t have olive oil any other oil will do. One of my friends uses Macadamia oil infused with a perfume. The oil is symbolic for the Holy Spirit anointing Luke4:18, Isaiah 61:1, Psalm23:5, 1 John 2:20, 27, 2 Corth 1:21. In the Old Testament it was used to consecrate those in the priesthood for service. It was symbolic for being set apart for the work of the Lord. Anointing your home is a symbolic declaration into the spiritual realm that you are setting your home apart for the Lord and you want His presence to dwell in it.
Start from the back of your home. Anoint the window frames and back doorway and start praying in the spirit (praying in tongues) and see if He reveals anything to you, then speak out aloud and command anything that is evil and not of the Lord to get out in Jesus name and to name anything He may specifically show you. When you feel that room is finished anoint the door frame leading into the house with oil and move on. Systematically pray through your house from back to front repeating the process. When you come to the front door order everything out of your house that is not of the Lord and command it to leave in Jesus name. Then invite the Lord to come and fill the house with His presence, fill it with His peace, His joy, His life and that His holy angels would come and guard your home against evil coming in and to alert you.
I helped pray through a ladies house once who was friends with a neighbor involved with Wicca, she was astro traveling into her home and causing disruption. I commanded all astro traveling to cease and commanded her to return to her body in Jesus name. I then forbid her to return in Jesus name. The lady the following week told me that she had peace in her home ever since. If you are a Christian and you are friends with people who dabble in this or know people involved with this, they may be harassing you in your own home without you even realising it. Remember you have the authority to order them get out and to leave you and your home alone.
Another thing that I do was shared by a missionary in Africa, which was shared to me by my friend who attended the service he was speaking at. Get four wooden pegs and write Joshua 1:3 go to the four corners of your property and drive them into the ground as stakes and then pour olive oil upon them. Again command everything that is evil and not of the Lord to leave your property and then invite the Lord to fill your property with His love, peace, joy, life etc and ask that His holy angels will take up residence to guard the property against evil and alert you when needed.
I take it astep further. I have a little printout of psalm 91 covered in wrap and I have them around each peg. I read a testimony of a small battalion of solders that carried a copy of psalm 91 around with them when in the battle zone and how miraculously they all survived without a scratch when in the situations they were in they should have died or been maimed. (The men in this battalion were all committed Christians)
Since implementing this with everywhere I live, the one thing that has consistently been said to me about my home when people who do not know who Lord come is how peaceful it is.
I hope this will assist you in creating a home environment that is a place of peace and a demon free zone!

I appreciate your offering and your openness. I'm sure this post will help some people.
Personally, I've lived in a haunted house for 16 years now. Although at times members of my family or visitors will be startled, no one has ever felt anything evil. I quite enjoy having these mysterious others around.
In my belief system I feel that evil comes in one form, temptation. If I feel an evil presence, which has only happened on a few occasions and not for many years, it was because I was in a situation where I could chose the wrong path. In those instances, the sense of evil actually failed to to lure me and instead drove me toward the light. I did pray to my higher power, who I've never learned the name of. The prayer was 100% effective.
But you do know that many christian practices have their origins from pagan practices. Christianity is literally an amalgam of many cultures beliefs.

It is refreshing to see a Christian properly teach on how to bless one's home without bring up the PAGAN art of Sage smearing. Sage smearing is not a Christian practice but of pagan origin.
I am no chemist or parfum designer but olive oil is one of the best base oils to use when making anointed oils. I prefer using the oil that God gave to Moses. Anyone who cares you can find the ingredients in the OT.
