Buying a House - Prayer

Prayer for Buying a House

Heavenly Father,

You see me, You know me, and you know my needs. You know everything about me, and I thank You, Father, for Your Grace despite my shortcomings.

Father, my housing situation is in need of change, and I ask You, Lord, to guide me to the right home, the home that will be best for all aspects of my life and the lives of my family and all others involved.

I trust You, Father. I know You love me and are watching out for me, caring for me, and providing for me.

Therefore I place my home seeking in Your hands, knowing You already have a place chosen for me, and one that will be the best possible situation for myself, my family, and all my loved ones.

Lord, I would like to buy a house, and I place that desire into Your Hands, asking for Your loving guidance in all matters. If You want me to buy a house, then make that possible. Clear the way and prepare the path for all things to happen in the time You deem best for them to happen.

Your loving-kindness has brought me this far, and I trust, Lord, that You will continue to provide all that I need.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for listening to my prayer, and for comforting me. When times are hard, you are always there for me, and I know you always will be. Your love makes my living worthwhile.

In Jesus’ Name, I lift up my soul and my prayer to Thee. Amen.

Linda Jo Martin, Book Lady

The outcome will be right no matter what it is – God will provide. Thank you Jesus. <3

  25. My husband and I have been looking at a particular home for the past 6 years. Yes I said 6 years. It was priced way out of our budget 6 years ago but the seller has reduced the price again (6 times in 6 years). Now it is almost in our price range. We put a low offer on home as we feel the value of the home and the land that it is on is not reflected in their high asking price . They came back with an offer $24,000 off asking price. God gave me a asking price in a dream the other night . We put in our final offer today with the price God told us to offer. The seller has till noon tomorrow to respond. It is late tonight and no response yet . We have placed this in God’s hands and are praying that the sellers have favor on us . The house. And grounds have not been maintained . I want this home to be a home. It deserves more attention than the out of state owners can give it. We pray that God speaks to their heart as He has ours on this property. I pray that it is placed upon them that we are the right buyers and that their realtor will not be a stumbling block. I know God will show His self in this Deal where there will be no doubt that it is a blessing from Him….Amen

  26. We are praying to purchase a beautiful home that we desire to have in a great neighborhood and we pray that the seller negotiate with us and bring the price down and our mortgage process goes smoothly with a reasonable mortgage payment that we can afford. We love this home and we claim it in Jesus name, its ours. Amen

  30. Trust Jesus. He is our shepherd and He can guide you to the best dwelling place for yourself and your family. Place your whole trust in Him.

  31. We sold our house in March this year to purchase a new house. Since we were previous owners we thought everything will be fine to get a mortgage for the house we just had an offer on. Everything fell through with the mortgage with the same mortgage company we used for our first house. We were in total shock, the mortgage criteria had become stricter.

    We were so hurt if we knew this, we would have stayed where we were but we had exchanged so no turning back. So we moved into my parents for a month found somewhere to rent. This nearly put a strain on our marriage, the blame game. What my kids had before was no longer there and they we’re hurt too but the devil is a liar. What he planned did not come to past. In all thing we give God thanks.

    We are praying to God and preparing to go through the process again to apply for a mortgage and find a house in a suitable area for our family where we can grow spiritually and have a dwelling place. So our prayers is our credit reports will be favourable to the mortgage companies and that we will have God’s favour all the way from the application, to the accepting of the offer of the house to the exchange of the house that all will go smoothly.

    God you said we should put our trust in you. We should cast all our burdens on to you. God we ask for your favour that you are a true and living God what you did in the old is present in the future and we trust in you. Answer us on lord. Give us wisdom and forgive us our sins. Let us be testimonies to others that you are a living God in Jesus name. Bless everyone here looking for the same favour in Jesus name. amen

  32. I always wanted to buy a house for my children, I saw the house that I want and want to raise my children in it . I pray to god that the banks can approve my loan.

  33. Inspiring prayers…My husband and I are looking for the house of our dreams where to raise our kids and the ones will come. First-time buyers, I just pray for GOD to provide us with the wisdom to choose objectively according to our family needs and affordability. GOD provides and in Jesus name I pray to get the bank loan to afford it and to be able to get an appropriate and affordable mortgage. In Jesus’s name: AMEN and GOD bless you all on your prayers!

  34. I just did the prayer, and will come back with the response I know my God is a kind and good God everything is going to come out as He had planned and I thank Him. Glory to Him.

  35. Love Love Love this prayer.
    My family is in need of prayer for a miracle in buying a home. We currently have a house that we have been Blessed with for 7.5 yrs. However somethings have come to light & I feel for my husband & two sons & I that it is time to move on from this house. I know that the Lord works in mysterious ways & his ways are always right & his timing is perfect. We want to be Blessed with a house that we can call our own & let Jesus shine in our new house that he will Bless us with.
    I pray for everyone on here that they have been or will be Blessed with their hearts desire’s to either change their living conditions or to be new homeowners in the Name of Jesus I Pray, Amen

  37. I am a young single mother of 3 children whom has lived in poverty my whole life. I want to change that. I pray to the Lord to bring to my path a suitable home for me and my family in a good neighborhood. In the name of Jesus. Amen! Please pray for me and my family, as i will do the same. God bless!

  38. We have made an offer on a house and it was accepted but when finally appraised it was valued less than asking price and the bank has asked that we renegotiate with the sellers as our mortgage is a HUD one and the house needs to be move-in ready. The appraiser has stated it isn’t and needs a new kitchen but the sellers are hesitant to comply and therefore our bank might squash the deal. We love this house! It is our home! We need prayers in abundance so please pray for us. I pray that all the unforeseens are taken care of to clear the path to us owning this home. In Jesus’ name I claim this…

  39. The power of prayer when in groups is so amazing and reading all the stories gave me hope. I saw a home that I could make my dream home but with all my debts and as single parent, I am only hoping for a miracle that the sellers may offer an option to lease with ownership to come later, and for a favorable lease amount because this new house is the ideal and perfect home for me and the kids – I pray everyone that comes to this page and is in need of help that they get favorable outcomes – we all deserve a safe and beautiful place to call home! God Bless! And thank you for this prayer!

  40. Love this Prayer. My husband and I are wanting to buy a house we saw Sunday after we were out of church. We spoke with the owner and it is perfect for us.

Thank You for this Prayer you have provided for all that are looking to buy a house.

  41. Please Lord Jesus, help us to buy a home to provide stability and happiness for our family. We have made mistakes in the past but with your guidance and strength we have worked hard at moving beyond them. I pray that You place Your Blessings on a home we are currently viewing and want to purchase. Please lay your hands on every professional, the sellers and ourselves from the approval process to closing! I have faith and trust in you to bless us and provide for our every need. In Jesus Name Amen!
