How to Set up a Family Altar in Your Home

How to Set up a Family Altar in your Home

It is very important to have an altar dedicated to God inside your home because The ark of the Lord remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months. And the Lord blessed Obed-Edom and all his household. (2 Samuel 6:11)

Your family altar can be a room where you where you pray and worship the Lord God with your spouse and children or alone if you are single. 

If you do not have an entire room to spare, you can dedicate a corner of a room where you kneel or sit and talk to God.

Regardless of whether you dedicate an entire room or a small space to be God's altar in your home, ensure that the room is clean and free from clutter. 

The altar in your home should also have a Bible that can read as you pray. 

Other items to consider placing in your home altar include Christian devotionals that you use to pray and lists of your prayer requests and photos of the people you are praying for. 

You can also play Christian praise and worship music in your altar room to usher you into the presence of the Lord. 

To decorate your family altar room, consider using Christian home decor accents with fish, loaves and other items that have significant Biblical meanings. 
Christian Home Decor uses color pictures and clear explanations to teach you five key interior decorating ingredients so that you can choose home decor accents that are appropriate for a Christian home decoration theme.

You can also hang Christian art posters on the walls of your family altar room. I recommend  hanging posters with Bible verses talking about the Promises of God regarding the issues you are praying about.
