Several years ago, when we were going through a truly difficult time with our children, a friend gave me the following receipe for blessing a home. It worked, maybe we need to do it again!
Blessing the salt: The amount of salt should be equal to the size of a quarter. Take the salt and lift it to God and say, "Almighty and Eternal God, graciously bless and make Holy this creature of salt. Let all touched or sprinkled with it be protected against all attacks of spiritual wickedness. In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Bless the water: The water may be any amount that you want. I usually use a lot of water so that I can keep it on hand. The words are the same as that used with the salt.
Pour the salt into the water. Mix it. Say, "May the mixing of the salt and water be done in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit." After it is mixed say: "Wherever this salt is sprinkled may the attacks of evil spirits be repelled in the name of Jesus."
Go into each room of the house, sprinkle the water about the room and say, "Deliver this room from all evil spirits, vain imagainations, and projections. Bid them harm no one but depart to the place appointed them. There to remain forever. Incarnate God that came to give peace, bring peace. The blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost be upon this place, upon all here, present now and always. Bless and hallow this place and let angels of light dwell within it to guard it and all its inhabitants through Christ our Lord. Amen.
