4. The dedication of a home is a simple rite commonly practiced by Latter-day Saints apart from the second anointing. The rite consists of a prayer invoking God's blessings on the home. Traditionally, this prayer is offered by a prieshood holder, though recent Church publications have stated that this need not be the case. In the context of the second anointing, the dedication by the husband seems to consecrate the home for sacred purposes, much like a temple dedication.
