Free my mind from the distressing anxieties that come from worrying about enemies harming me or other dangers or disruptions. I thank You for allowing me to buy my own home.

Your Word says that I should keep my life free from the love of money, and be content with what I have, for You have said: “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Father, I love You because You have kept Your Word and have been faithful to me financially so that I can buy a new home. Please help me desire nothing more than what You have given me, and focus my energy and attention on my love of You and how I can use my new home to be a better Christian. Please keep me from getting wrapped up in all the things I can do to improve or decorate my new home, and instead use me as a vessel for Your work. Amen.
