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. Thank You for taking care of me, and for providing all I need.

Father, my housing situation needs to change. 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 love You, Father. I know You love me. You watch out for me, take care of me, and strengthen me.

I trust You.

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

Buying a House - Prayer

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.

  1. Dear Heavenly Father,
    You are an amazing God. Thank you for your unending kindness. Thank you for your everlasting love and mercy. Father God, thank you for giving me and my family the opportunity to go house hunting and providing us a good team who cares about us who are purchasing our first home. I pray for each and everyone of them who are involved because you know their heart and their situations. I pray for them that they will be spiritually healed and provide them of the things they need. Please bless them abundantly. Father as the underwriting in process, I pray that it will go smoothly and quickly without any hindrance. I pray to your will. I pray that all the paper works will go through, and everything that it requires will be met for the closing date. Father God, I know that you’re in control. Your timing and your ways are always perfect. Thank you for being so awesome! I love you, I adore, I am in awe of you, You are truly amazing and worthy of my worship. In this I ask in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.

  2. Father God,
    I praise your Holy name, I honor you Lord. I’m believing Lord,that our current home will be sold for asking price or more. I pray and lift up the owner at our desire home we are seeking ,let the owner reconsider our offering price and accept it. Father your word cannot return void. You say in Psalms 37:4-5. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. Lord, we are seeking your Kingdom first and believing, trusting in you all these things will be added to us, I pray this in Jesus mighty name, Amen.

My family and I are staying in hotels and it’s very expensive, I just want them to treat us with respect and answer calls and work hard for us.

  6. Lord,
    You work in wonderful ways. Not everything is in my ideal timing, but always in yours. We have been living way from family for 4 years, and you have finally made it possible for us to be closer after all this time. Lord as we continue our house hunting journey in our new city, lord i pray that you direct me to the perfect house to fit our family and its needs. You know the desires in our heart, and i know that our top pick might not be what you have in mind for us. I just pray for guidance in the coming weeks, guide me to what you have in store for us.

    In your name I pray and ask this, Amen.

  9. Dad, today we saw a house in an awesome area and a right size for our family. Father you know our financial situation,and the desires of our hearts. We have been good stewards of what you have placed in our lives and daily we are learning more . just recently there has been drug activity outside our home and I want to protect our family from this. You know the high crime rate near my area. Father you told me to start preparing 3 years ago and I’ve been doing just that in faith. I love you and your faithfulness despite my short comings. Father you see the house I’m asking about, our credit and finances. I give them all to you. In my big brother Jesus’s name amen

  10. God,
    I’ve been living with my in-law family now for 4 years. I’ve struggled with 11 people in 1 house with 1 bathroom. I’ve endured absolutely no privacy for me to think calmly. I’ve lost sleep, felt I’ll, become anxiety ridden,and even my marriage is struggling. I ask dear father for my husband and I to finally start our marriage in our own home. I have picked it out and I have dreams of living in peace, of raising a family. And finally being happy again. Please heavenly father… I don’t want anything else for Christmas but this. I ask that you guide us. That you help us in our struggles. I ask that you help my marriage get better with a home. I can’t handle this anymore. Please dear lord, please bless us with a home. I am forever greatful for the gifts you have already given us. Not a day goes by that I don’t thank you for so much. Please let my husband and I finally have peace in our marriage. Please. Thank you, amen.

  11. Dear Father in Heaven,

    I trust in your timing and thank you for all the blessing and protection you have given me thus far. I pray that you make an opportunity for financing and a home to call our own again. I have learned from my mistakes and I pray for your forgiveness and mercy. Allow the desires in my heart to come to fruition, but if it is not time, let my heart, mind and soul come to terms with it, as well as my husband. I ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen

  12. Please pray for me I am 45 years old, single Mom. I have been strugglingto find permanent empLoyment with a decent salary. I am unemployed most of the time but have this dream and desire of owning my own home, a house I can call a home, although there’s no finances. I believe and trust that GOD will through for us, soon, thank you

  13. I am in the process of buying a home. The process has caused a great deal of anxiety for me. I have an anxiety disorder. We are waiting on the final approval from underwriting. We were supposed to know Friday last week but never heard. I’ve lost sleep, my stomach is in knots, I’ve been grinding my teeth so hard my mouth cannot even chew bread without pain. I am asking for prayers that I hear something today and for comfort and ease from my anxiety. Thank you very much to whomever can send a prayer up for me.

  14. Oh God, please send me the guidance to figure out how to buy a house in my neighborhood. I know you will lead me to the perfect home for my family. It’s been a rough year, and I know you have watched are struggles and helped in so many ways. When the days were bad I felt you trying to lift me up God. My husband lost his job 1 year ago, we live in the basement of his parents house. Our 2 teenage children have been so patient with our situation, such a blessing! I have got a part time job to make things better and we still struggle. My husband has finally got anew job and starts this week. I asked my children what they wanted for the holidays, they both answered quickly. No gifts we don’t need anything, we just want a house. Yeah a place with more space that they would fell comfortable inviting a friend over. Please God hear my prayer and help me pull off this miracle , my credit isn’t great but I love to give them a home.
    With love

    1. Do not worry about your credit, God can make the visible invisible and hide what needs to be hidden. He tells us in his words, the birds do not worry are we not more than a bird. Well do not worry go and get your house in Jesus name.

      Matthew 6:25-34New International Version (NIV)

      Do Not Worry

      25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

      1. I’m sitting with tears in my eyes as hope overflows along with faith, I lost my job and bills fell behind. My credit isn’t great and money isn’t much. However I have been the best steward as I know how and I pray to remain teachable. I’m a mom of 5 and just recently I’ve witnessed drugs being sold and smoked outside our housing complex. I desire a safe place for our family. I was thinking credit issues and low income will prevent us, but your response reminded me of how big my Dad is. Father forgive me for putting you in a box.

  15. I prayed this prayer before we even started looking for a house and we got 100% mortgage on a new development with a HUGE garden for my girls, God was faithful provided us with this home, cannot wait to move in in March 2015, God you are awesome awesome awesome!!!!!!

    1. this just gave me so much hope! I refuse to let my faith waiver because I know he will do the same for me. congratulations on your new home!! reading this testimony after praying was confirmation for me!! God bless

  16.

    1. God has Blessed my family and I with a new home, we signed and closed the deal on 10/8/15. God blessed us double of what we had before.

      Keep believing and keep trusting; he will make a way.
      I continue to pray for everyone on this site.

      God Bless,

    2. I love your prayer. Hope it helps you out. And me, I lived with people, lived on my own the landlord was stealing from me or his employees. Any way I’d like a place of my own, I am tired of moving. It is expensive. I know the Lord will provide for us both with our housing problem. In Jesus name We pray. Amen.

  17. Father I pray that the perfect house comes along for us. We want to be homeowners if you see fit. Please pave the way for the right place and the right price, although I know you always provide. Please bless us and know that we continue to Praise you in Jesus Name.


    1. I am praying for a home I can make my own. I have been praying for a long time now to receive this miracle. The Lord guided me towards a few homes in the past couple of weeks which instantly made my heart smile. See I am 42 and have never had my own home. I am tired of bouncing around always having to move. I pray stability for myself and my children. I pray that these homes are not just more things to add to the list of false promises and disappointments which have plagued my life. I am ready to receive my blessing and live in harmony and joy. I pray the Lord pours his grace on me, my family and all here seeking his guidance and miracles in getting a home. In Jesus Name Amen

    2. Father in Heaven you tell us to ask and it shall be given. I am asking you for great miracles and restoration. I am almost 43 years old and never had a home of my own. I have been seeking and praying, I have seen many homes I like but you lead me to the one I have always held in my dreams. It will take a true miracle and financial breakthrough for this to happen since I have nothing.

      Father I am thankful for what you have done in carrying me this far, but please Father I am asking for this to be my time and that you clear the way on 14350 Millhaven PL for me.

      In Jesus Name I Pray Amen

    3. Dear Heavenly Father, Thanks for giving ear to my meditation and Request. Lord I have been looking for a while for a decent condo.Of course I have located several but a I need money to bid,open and close this deal, move whatever obstacles that may come way negotiating the buying deal. Jesus I need thee Almighty God.I appreciate everything that you have provided for me so far. Please here my cry and make buying an affordable decent condo of my choice possible. Bless me Lord with whatever is needed to buy or sacrifice without loosing anything else. Amen

    4. Father I am humbled before you as you have kept me in shelter for this long. Father I am asking for you to move mountains, open the gates of heaven and pour out a blessing that will allow me to get a home for my family. Lord I am tired of bouncing around and only ever having a place to stay but never live. I am asking for great opportunity that my children and I can live with peace and stability knowing our home will be filled with the holy spirit and a place we can settle and belong. I thank you father for you have already guided my steps to some wonderful homes that make my heart smile. I am asking now that you open and doors and pour out what I need to make this purchase. In Jesus Name Amen.

  18. I have been blessed in so many ways and I am forever grateful. We are praying for the owners to accept our bid so we can move into the perfect house for us. We can not afford to go any higher and they won’t come down. If this is the right house for us we ask that our prayers be answered.

  19. PLEASE pray with me, I want to be a home owner again I am asking for prayer that God will open the windows of Heaven and make a way for me to buy the home this season. I am asking for Gods help I don’t want to do it without him.

  20. Really need prayer. We are the back up contract on a home. We actually had it 1st, the buyer of our home backed out day before closing so we lost our contract on our new one. I got everything straightened out within 48 hours went back to seller they had another contract. We find out Wednesday if they will be closing with the other buyer or us. We have looked for 2 long years for a home to fit our family and budget. I instantly knew this home was meant for us and then everything fell apart. I do not want to wish bad anything for the other buyers but REALLY want/need this home for our family. Please stand in agreement with us that we will be closing on Wednesday.

  21. My prayers were answered. We are once again homeowners. I thank God every day for this blessing. I am praying for all, that they too are blessed.

  22. I am in the process of trying to buy a home I need prayer it seems that every time I think I’m about to close on the house something comes up and stops me from getting it. Now I’m at it again I need prayer that if it’s for me it will close smooth.

  23. God please bless my daughter and I with this home we recently looked at. I love the home and it will fit our small family very well. I have been renting for a few years now but would love to own a piece of land to secure our lives. Please God provides us with a speedy process without any stress. I have saved up please don’t allow any obsticles to hinder my finance during this process. Bless the home we picked out. Thank you God we pray you name.

    1. God will not leave your side. It is true what some of the responses via this site have said: Have faith as God can make things happen beyond our imagination.
      I recently went for a home loan and had to go through several weeks of anxiety with parts of the home loan application out of my control. There were some glitches in our application which caused the first bank to decline immediately. However, the next application went through first stage and second stage was approved due to broker having opportunity to explain our case. God blessed my family and although it was an ordeal and a test we are about to sign off our loan contract and settlement this Friday. For those who struggle to see the light have faith and God will guide you through the darkness.

  24. I want everybody to help me pray for our home that we want to purchase is a home that we want really really bad and I know that if God help us we will get it and will be very happy there I’ve never wanted something so bad in my life Thank You

  25. Is it possible to pray for a home without having the finances for the home? My prayer for a home answered, to me means that my home will be in heaven, since my Lord would not want me to get into dept. I would like a home, but if I pray for a home God Knows that I don’t want to be in dept, so it would have to be a great miracle. I trust that God would, but I also know that he can say no because he knows that I will not get into dept. I get my answer from Psalms 23: The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want, and also the Lords Prayer forgive us our dept as we forgive our debtors; I can see Gods’ character. I don’t want to do anything that I would have to ask forgiveness for.

    I would like to purchase a house cash if I had it, just like purchasing clothing, food, medicine, soaps, and if life was fair it would be so.

    God Knows why; It is like musical chair; There is one who is always left standing, and it does not feel right, but for the one standing, Jesus is right there besides him or her. I feel like I stand out as a minority, since I don’t have a home of my own, Jesus gives me shelter for free, but I would rather have my own secret home to do my work do especially cooking for my family.

    Because God has not given me my request I know that I am special to him, now,and I am only a visitor on a journey passing through.

  26. Lord, I’m humbly pray that our purchase for a home contract is accepted tomorrow. I humbly pray for this home so that my husband and I have a nice home to receive our children and grandchildren in. In Jesus name I pray and with humble thanks.

    1. I am praying for the same thing, I know it’s a debt but I rather have that than paying someone else’s debt. God bless to all

  27. Lord says ask and it will be given unto you. Lord I am asking you to help me with my search to find a place to call home and to qualify for a mortgage and a reasonable down payment by the end of October in jesus name I pray

  28. God please help me ,I want to buy a house for my children ,my children are not staying with me they are stayimg with my mother in law ,I want to stay with them Lord ,please hear my prayer ,I have debts to pay ,my life is not easy I am trying but its very hard ,please Lord give me hope that one day you will answer me ,all my friend and people I know are progressing , I dont have nothing I can even buy myself clothes because I have to pay all the unseccary debts I made ,but I know you Lord you are God of miracles

    Thank you Father for listening to my prayer

  29. I am praying for a home to call my own. My living situation is not the best. and also GOD blesses me with a wonderful new job so i buy a home as early as possible .

  30. Beautiful prayer and I am also asking for prayers to be approved for a condo for myself and my children. I am paying way too much in rent every month and am hoping for a miracle to get approved. My credit is not great due to being a single mom and living paycheck to paycheck, however, God provides and I’ve survived thus far so I am hopeful in receiving this gift. God Bless!!!

  33. I am in agreement with those who are looking for a place to call home. That we find favor with all who are involved with the process and/or those who may come involved with the purchase. Thank you Lord for Grace and Mercy.

  34. We have found the home that we want. However, in my country, we have to go through a computer balloting system to get the flat. There are more than 600 people who submitted their names for 4 available units. The balloting will be done in about 6 weeks time. We are praying for God to bless us with the flat.

  35. Hello, please pray that my application and my family are the ones to be chosen for the house that will be made in honor of Pope Francis by Habitats for Humanity.

  36. I have made an offer on a house that my wife and I loved. The seller will be making a decision today as I understand that they have received multiple offers. We can only afford the list price and from the looks of things. They are expected to be offered more than asking. I am praying for a miracle. God is the only one that can help us. In the name of almighty Jesus I pray.

  37. I’m about to submit documents for pre approval and I pray God will give us the house we want. I have spent the past 5years paying off my debt and praise the Lord I have paid off all of them. I believe God will answer our prayers. amen
