Finding the right home is an important step for any family that plans on staying there for the long term. These guiding prayers for buying a home will help you to seek the Lord’s guidance during this important step of your life.

Prayer #1

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

Prayer #2

Dear God,
I am exploring options for a new place to live. Regardless of my past experiences, I am willing for this to be a smooth and joyful experience in every way. Please decide for me about where it should be, what it should look like and how the details should unfold. Thank You for providing all of the resources, guidance, supplies, perfect timing and helpful people to ensure that I find the happiest possible place to live. I am willing to trust You and acknowledge that Your will for me is for complete and total happiness. I will know when I have found the right place to live because I will feel peaceful on every level.

Thank You, in advance, for an amazing home, neighbors and community that are far beyond my greatest expectations. I am willing to receive the richness of Your blessings and anticipate a joyful outcome in all respects. Thy will be done. Amen

Prayer #3

I am truly thankful for this home that You have led us to. Lord, as much as I love this home I place it into Your hands for it really is Yours. Nothing happens without Your foreknowledge. Father, may I be a good steward of this home. Bless my efforts to grow a beautiful family and also a beautiful home. Lord, may this be a home that people know are always welcome, for it is Your home. So, I ask for Your blessing on it. May it be a place of refuge from the cold winter winds. May it be a place of security when my kids/spouse needs a hug or a serious conversation. May it be a place of romance as my husband/wife and I dance in the kitchen and long for one another when we are apart. This home is such a blessing and I will not take it for granted. I love, You!

Prayer #4

Heavenly Father, I am here asking for your blessing that it has come with great difficultly as I am trying to purchase my first home for my family. I continue to endure roadblocks that are keeping me from this investment for my family.

I pray that you lift and take away and release anymore roadblocks or problems that may keep us from having this home to call my own that lie ahead. For I know this is not my real home but a borrowed home for I hope someday later, I may join Our heavenly Lord in heaven. This has always been a dream of mine And my daughters as well as my spouse to have a home to call our own.

I pray that you bless me and my little family with this house that we are trying to buy and may we close on it by the end of the week. I don’t know what else to do but ask this of you for you are all knowing in helping us with Our Lord my God.

That financial we will be well provided for. May there be no more struggles with buying this home or money that you will help me and my spouse see it through with patience and love. I ask to help us once again with this brand new home. Amen. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Prayer #5

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.

Prayer #6

Father God we thank You that you brought us to this home and now we are sure that this is the right time for us to uproot from here and to move away. Thank You that throughout our lives You have provided for us in so many ways, including this home and we pray that You will continue to provide and protect us as we seek to put this house up on the market for sale.

Lord You have kept a roof over our heads through the past and I trust You Father to provide a home and shelter for us all in the future, as You have promised. You have told us not to worry about what to eat and what to wear and I believe that you do not want us to worry about where we are to live – for You have promised to be our Provider in all things and I trust You in this.

Lord, we do ask for Your blessing as we enter the process of selling our house and ask for Your leading and guidance throughout this process, knowing that You have scheduled every day of our lives and do not want us to worry or fear about the future.

Give us wisdom in the days that lie ahead and Father I pray that You would undertake in all things. Bring the right people into our lives for whom you have prepared this place and we trust You to be with us throughout the entire process. Keep us from worry and may our eyes be upon You, in Jesus name I pray, Amen

Prayer #7

Dear God,
It appears to be a good time for me to buy property. Before I engage in the buying process, I call upon You to guide my every thought, decision and action step. Please give me a signal to ensure this is the proper time for me to move forward. I will know I am listening to Your guidance when I feel peaceful and compelled to take action. I’d like to make a reservation for peace. Thank You for an easy, smooth, timely, affordable and joyful purchasing experience in all respects.

Thank You for coordinating all of the details of the transaction and gathering the appropriate people and resources to ensure the highest and most happy outcome for everyone involved. With Your perfect guidance, everything is already aligned, taken care of and being shown to me now. I walk in the confidence and certainty of Your love, light and grace. Thy will be done. Amen

Prayer #8

Prayer Loving Lord, we need Your grace and wisdom today as we have to set about selling our home. Father we know that the housing situation today is very difficult, for few people are in a position to move into a new home, due to the increasingly difficult economic situation – nevertheless Lord, our lives are in Your hands and we trust You to lead and guide in this important decision that we are having to make.

Give us wisdom as we face this challenge and pray that You would bring the right buyer into our lives so that both they and we may be blessed by Your goodness.

Lord, we know that Your ways are not our ways and so we place this house sale into Your hands and trust that in Your time and in Your way You would bring us the right buyer – the one that You have chosen to come and live here..

Thank You Lord that You hear the cries of all Your children and we trust You to hear our prayer and answer in YOUR time and in Your way – Help me not to become discouraged and prevent me from trying to advise You what and how to help us! And so into Your hands we place this house sale and pray, Thy will be done in Jesus name, Amen

Prayer #9

God, we have a big decision before us. Should we – or not – purchase the house we’re considering? You invite us to ask for wisdom. In James 1 you say it directly: ‘If anyone lacks wisdom, let them ask…’ We’re asking. We’re not smart enough and we don’t know enough of the future to know for certain if this is a fitting investment for us. You do. As you children we’re asking you, our father, for direction. You know all the nuances involved. Guide us. Lead us, as Jesus says, ‘…not into temptation.’ But instead, lead us into the land of blessing you promise.

Our pending question: Is the house we’re considering our ‘promised land?’ So speak to us through our own hearts, through the counsel of others we trust, through the circumstances we can’t control, and through ways we can’t imagine. We trust you; and we trust you to guide our lives and our life decisions. This one is big, and it matters. Thank you that we can believe you desire the best for us and that you have the perfect home for our family, a home you will share with us! In Jesus.

Prayer #10

Loving Father, I know that You are interested in every area of our lives and we find that we need to sell our house and so we are placing this need into Your hands, knowing that You have told us to cast ALL our cares upon You – for You care about every situation of our lives…

Lord we thank You for providing us with this home, but You also know the need to sell our home at this point in time, and want to place the entire selling process into Your hands – praying that You would be with us to lead and to guide during the entire sale.

Lord You also know who it is that needs to move into this house and Lord, we are trusting You to guide the right buyers to see it – and we pray that at the right time they may be able to purchase our home.

Lord into Your hands we commit our lives and our future in Jesus name, Amen

Prayer #11

Father In Heaven,
I thank You for this new neighborhood You have led us to. I pray that as you have given us this wonderful blessing for a home that You would also bless our neighborhood. Our next door neighbors seem very kind, Father, and I pray that as we get to know them more and more that You use my family to show Christ to them and the other neighbors close by. I love You! Amen
