Prayer is something that we learn and it is also a gift from God. It is a combination of our own personal effort and the work of God within us. It establish-es a real communion with God that forms into the relationship intended by him for each one of us.
Prayer before selling
Selling your home can be a stressful time, but it is also a time of hope and dreams about moving on to your next big adventure. Here are 10 powerful prayers for selling your home.
Prayer to Sell Our Home Quickly
O Lord, Mighty in Power, I pray for our home to sell quickly. Lord, we put our trust in You and ask that You give our home curb appeal and make it attractive to buyers so when they see it, they fall in love with it. I pray that You guide the right buyers to us who are motivated and not overly difficult. Please remove any obstacles so they feel at ease with the purchase of our home and the sales process is completed smoothly without any unexpected issues. We need the money from the closing to help purchase our next home, and so we need the house to move quickly through the sales process. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer for Smooth Sales Process
God of the Universe, I pray that our home selling process goes very smoothly. Please help the buyer to stay committed to purchasing the house and not get cold feet during the process. I pray that with every piece of new information, they are pleased and want to continue forward. Please don’t let there be any issues with their personal situation, with getting financing or any reason for the buyers to back out. God, You are the First and the Last. I surrender control of every step of this process to You. Take this burden from my heart and bring joy to my soul. Amen.
Prayer for the Right Buyer
O Exalted One, please send the right buyer to buy our home. With the precious memories that we have made in this house, we hope that the next family cherishes it as much as we do. I pray for a buyer who fills the home with a loving family where many more beautiful memories will be made. I pray for a buyer who takes pride in our home, maintains the house and its landscaping, and is kind to our neighbors. Please use this home of ours to be a happy sanctuary for the next family to live, laugh, and love. In Your Son’s name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer for Guidance as We Sell Our Home
Jesus, my Wise Counselor, instruct me and teach me in the way I should go in choosing a real estate agent to sell my home. Make my steps firms so that I do not fall. I do not know which agent to pick who will be skilled and work the hardest for me, but You do, Jesus. Show me these things which I do not know. Bring an agent into my life who knows the right way to stage my home, the right price to set, and how high I can stay in the price negotiations. Do not let me fall and uphold me with Your hand. I ask these things in Your name. Amen.
Prayer for the Buyer’s Financing
God of Blessings, please be with the buyer of our home as they forge ahead in getting financing to purchase our home. Let the bank be fair and move quickly to process the loan. Set the buyer’s mind at ease and calm their nerves as they wait on the bank’s underwriting process. God, I ask that our appraisal comes back with a valuation that shows the home is fairly priced. Be with everyone involved in this sale and please let it all work out the way You plan for us. Our lives are in Your gracious and all-powerful hands. Amen.
Prayer for Endurance During the Sale of Our Home
God, my Fortress, when unexpected showings come upon us in a moment’s notice, allow me to have the energy to clean, put away clutter, and stage my home so that buyers will want to make an offer on it. Help me not become overwhelmed with frustration or anxiety when the showings interrupt my life and come at inconvenient times. Help me to keep a positive attitude even when these showings do not result in an offer or even any reasonable feedback from the potential buyers about my home. God, set my mind on the final outcome so I will not grow weary and irritated with the continuous showings. Amen.
Prayer for Peace of Mind During the Sale of Our Home
Almighty God, I pray that You fill me with peace during the home sales process. You say that I should not be anxious about anything but present my requests to You and Your peace will guard my heart and mind. Send me Your peace, dear God. Send Your perfect peace which transcends all understanding to fill my mind and body so that I am not worried or overwhelmed with the paperwork, finding a buyer and strangers trampling throughout my home. I will not worry about tomorrow. I will take one day at a time and let You worry about tomorrow for me, Lord God. In Jesus’ all-powerful name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer for a Favorable Home Inspection
God of Victory, You say that everyone born of God overcomes the world. Give me victory, Lord God, in the home inspection process so that the inspector does not find any big problems with my home. I pray that the homebuyer is reasonable when reading the inspection report and does not demand costly repairs from me. Please bless all of us in this process so it goes smoothly. May the inspection settle any doubts by the homebuyer of the value of our home. Thank You for Your unfailing agape love and devotion. Lord God, grant us success! Amen.
Trusting God with the Sale of My Home Prayer
God of Enduring Faithfulness, during this uncertain time in my life when I am trying to sell my house, please keep me from worrying about whether it will sell or how long it will take. Encourage me to keep my faith strong and trust that You hold my future in Your hands. While the news rambles on about the real estate market, home sales, and interest rates, remind me to ignore the noise of the world and keep my eyes fixed on You. Set my sights on Your mercy and grace and calm my nerves, for I know You are in total control. I cast my anxiety on You, God, because You care for me. In Jesus’ loving name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer for Family Unity During Home Selling Process
Loving and Gracious Father, during this uncertain and stressful time of selling our home, please guide my family with Your word, teachings, and promises. Permit us to not forget our mission as Christians. Keep our hearts centered on You, give us patience with each other, and help us to make lasting memories during this last season that we have together in our home. May our family unit grow stronger and more committed to each other and to You through this process. Amen.
