The Book of Genesis tells us that God created all things and that they were good. Many of these things He created have fallen prey to evil and bad deeds. Sage, for instance, has a bad reputation because of those who use it for evil.
God created all plants and seeds, and many have health benefits. Sage is one of these plants that can heal and cleanse.
The smudging of sage cleans and refreshes your home, thus cleansing it of darkness and negative energy. It can, therefore, serve the same purpose as incense.
An important note, though, is that we should not place our faith and trust in the plant but in God Almighty. Just as with candles that help us focus our prayers, it is not the plant that does the cleansing, but God the Father.
Even though it is not Biblical, it can be compared with the use of incense and the cleansing has to be focused on God.

Even though God does not need any rituals, you can burn sage to focus your heart and prayers on Him. It is also a way of cleaning the air around you and your spaces so you can breathe freely.
Breathe in the Holy Spirit to make your joy complete. Our focus should be on the Lord Jesus Christ even though we can use tools to assist us.
As Luke 1:9 says, “he was chosen by lot, according to the custom of the priesthood, to go into the temple of the Lord and burn incense.”
I believe you should save these prayers against demoniac spirits.
2) Miracle Sage Cleansing Prayer For Negative Energy
“God in Heaven,
I ask for Your miraculous presence at my side right now so that You help me in this request of mine, so that You help me in this miracle and that You help me in this prayer.
I need You, Your strength and Your miracles because I want to expel all demons from my body, my soul and my life.
I need You to send all Your light towards me, for it to illuminate me and for it to illuminate my body, my soul and my life.
I ask that Your light cleanse all the evils around me, that it expels all the demons from near me and that it expels all the evil from my life.
God in Heaven, help me, protect me and keep all evil away from me. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Thank the Lord for everything, and invite the angels in to occupy the cleansed spaces.
God allows us to find help, as He says in Leviticus 16:12, “He is to take a censer full of burning coals from the altar before the Lord and two handfuls of finely ground fragrant incense and take them behind the curtain.”
The importance is to look to God and not the tools.
3) Powerful Prayer For Cleansing Home With Sage
“Dearest Lord, my God,
I humbly pray in Your name that You pour Your grace upon our home and fill it with the purifying energy of sage that represents Your Holiness.
I ask You to keep us safe from all harm and to fill our home with peace and tranquility. Please keep an eye on us as we live in our home. May we always be aware of Your presence and protection.
For as long as You are present in our hearts, no evil will enter this home. I say this prayer in Your name, Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
It is important to keep reminding yourself that Christ plays a central role in our lives and that burning sage is only a tool. When we do the cleansing prayers, we need to be clear in our minds what they are for as well.
God wants positive energy to surround us so that there is no clutter when we pray to Him. Sage is not mentioned in the Bible, but again, we can refer to the verses regarding incense.
As Psalm 141:2 says, “May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.”
4) Sage Smudging Prayer For Home With Bad Spirits
“Dear Lord and Savior,
I ask that You cleanse my home and my spirit from all evil. I plead with You through Your Holy Spirit that You do this for me. Thank you
Please remove all demonic spirits that are trying to make their home in my space. Create a clean presence for Your Holiness to dwell here.
As this smoke rises, I pray that Your energy levels are elevated to disperse all that is evil and does not belong here. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
When you serve God with all your heart and mind, evil spirits will not be happy. They will try to prise you away from God.
Hence, you might find them coming into your home every now and then. Sometimes we need help, and sage can be of help as it cleans the air and spaces.
When they do, you can clean your home physically first and then use sage to get rid of them. This would mean, as we said before, that you do not allow your focus to be on the sage except that it is there to assist you in your prayers.
As the saying goes, “Cleanliness is next to Godliness.”
Also try these miracle prayers to remove toxic persons from your life.
5) Easy Prayer To Say When Burning Sage
As the smoke and fragrance rise up, fill my home with Your light and protection. May every corner and space in this house be blessed and cleansed with Your powers.
I pour my heart, body, mind, family and house into Your care. May any negative energy, spirit and entity that is trying to make this home unholy be removed by Your holy presence. Amen.”
Whether you are lighting a candle, burning incense, or burning sage, remember to always focus on the Almighty God for guidance and strength.
As Malachi 1:11 says, “My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations.”
Praying simple and easy prayers is helpful, especially if you have specific areas that you are targeting. It is therefore important to create your target of cleansing before you start your prayers.
Luke 1:10 says, “And when the time for the burning of incense came, all the assembled worshipers were praying outside.”
Before you leave, save these miracle prayers for the impossible to happen.
What Type Of Prayer Do You Say When Saging Your House?
The idea of saging is to cleanse your home from negative energy and evil. However, there are no hard and fast rules for what kind of prayers you should pray.
For the most part, though, many use it to clean their spaces, beings, and auras. Hence, the prayers are mostly focused on doing that. However, as with incense and candles, you can also use it as a time of praise and worship with the Lord.
Can I Pray More Than One Prayer?
Pray as many prayers as you need to, as you need to cleanse yourself or your home. Do the prayers for as long as you need to until there is relief. Remember, it is about cleansing.
Think of it as similar to deep cleaning your physical home. You will clean your home until you feel that it is clean. Similarly, you need to clean the spiritual aspect of it until it is clean.
Are These Prayers Really Powerful?
Referring back to cleaning your physical home, you will find that if it is clean, you can breathe easier and feel refreshed by the cleanliness.
Oftentimes, you can also sense that you will remove all evil and darkness that dwell in the dirt.
This is similar to when you use sage and pray the prayers we suggested. You may also use your own prayers, and you will sense and know that prayer is powerful. Hence, praying these prayers will definitely create a positive space and a prayerful home for you.
Sage is a wonderful herb that cleanses the physical body as well as the spiritual body. It can also heal and clear your surrounding spaces, and your aura. It helps you create a fresh smelling home.
A home that has positive energy will create a space for positive thinking and living. As a Christian, it will definitely aid you in your prayer if your focus is on God and not on the sage tool. Call on the Lord for help.
We ought to pray that God cleanses our beings and our homes from all negative and dark energies. This includes cleansing our bodies. Sage can assist in all areas as an herbal and spiritual remedy.
The emphasis is on the Lord, as we have mentioned over and over. When we cleanse our home with the aid of sage smoke, we have to remember that it is for His glory and kingdom.
