Prayer For The House

Dear God, we are numb with grief because we felt that You had guided us to this home and yet now we are faced with foreclosure and we don't know which way to turn. Lord, we want to trust You in all things and we are coming to You once more to pray Your grace over us and our home, and to ask that in Your mercy You would prevent this foreclosure. Lord we ask that You would keep us in our home, and provide for us in all things.

Lord, let our trust be in You and help us to cast all our troubles and fear upon You. You have provided for us in the past and we pray that You will continue to provide for us in the future.

Lord, we read about Habakkuk in the Bible who was faced with some terrible disasters, but despite all the dreadful problems he had to face, his faith remained firm and secure in You.

Keep us firm Lord and be our hope in time of trouble. Help us to trust in You no matter what happens. Help us Lord, to maintain our hope and trust in You. Thank You that You have promised to be our help and strength, our defence and defender, our provider and provision. Thank You, Lord. Into Your hands we commit our home and future and ask You to carry us on eagles wings. In Jesus' name,


Loving Lord, I have a lot of money problems and outstanding bills and am not able to pay for all the repairs that are needed on my home to keep it secure. Lord, I know that You brought us to this place and I pray that in Your grace, You would keep the infrastructure of my home secure, until the finances can be found to do the necessary repairs.

Lord, protect the walls and the roof of my home, its doors and its window, and I pray that You would keep us warm as winter approaches and prevent anything from happening that will cause us additional expense.

Father, I know that I have not power to do this, but I know that You are a God Who cares for each of Your children. I pray that by Your grace You would grant this request. Lord, I know that Your Word is true. Help me to maintain my trust in Your promise to help in time of need. In Jesus' name I pray,


Father, help us to remember that we are not just individuals out to achieve our own agendas. You have joined us together as a family; unite our hearts in love. Remind us that we are stronger together. Show us how to love each other sacrificially, graciously, and generously every day. May we serve each other, performing even the smallest acts of kindness for one another without complaint or score-keeping. We ask that our love for one another reflect Christ's sacrificial and unconditional love so that others will look at our home and our family, and see You. Let our love for one another draw others to know your love for them.

No matter what our faith background up to this point, we pray for a heritage of faith, godliness, righteousness, salvation, and a passion for Your Word and for the Gospel. Help us to take the time to teach our children truth. We don't want to ever be so busy that we neglect to teach our children about You. Give us the right words to say and guide our discussions with our children. May our children choose to marry strong Christians and raise their own children in Your Word. Where we have gone astray, we pray for grace and new opportunities. For our adult children and our grandchildren, we ask that You will turn their hearts and minds to You even now.

Lord, may our homes be havens of peace. The world around us can be stressful and high-pressured. We may be surrounded by conflict, battles, and oppression outside this home, but we pray that inside these walls, You will bring peace. Help us to rest in You. Help us communicate with grace, offer love and support, and speak in love. Even in the stressful rush of the mornings as we head out the door to school, work, church and other activities, may we breathe deeply and choose peace, gentleness, and kindness with one another.

We do thank You Lord, for bringing us into this home that You have graciously provided for us in so many ways. Thank You for all the loving support that we have received from so many people who have helped and supported us in many different ways, to move into our home and settle into this place.

We are gathering today to offer our heartfelt thanks for Your gracious provision, and to pray Your blessing and peace on us and on our home and neighbours. May Your presence abide here with us and may it be a place of welcome to all who may enter within. And Lord, we pray that Your name may be glorified here.

Abide in each room we pray, and may the sunshine of Your warming love enter into the hearts of all that come through the door. May this always be a place that is open and welcoming to others. Guard us from the strategies of the evil one, and may Your Holy Spirit of grace hover over our home and pour out Your manifold blessing on us. In Jesus' name we pray,


Heavenly Father, You are the God of peace and love, and we pray that Your perfect peace would fill our hearts and our home and that Your gracious love would surround our family so that we may be united together in love, and one with You.

Bind us together we pray, and may Your joy unite us in sweet fellowship with one another and with You. Give us Your hope in our hearts and bless all who visit this home.

Thank You for providing all that we need according to Your riches in glory, and keep us from holding on too tightly to the material things of this world, knowing that You have prepared a heavenly home for all that are in the family of God. May Your blessing rest upon us and upon our home not only today but in the days to come, until You come to take us to be with Yourself, forever. In Jesus' name we pray,


Dear Heavenly Father, it was Joshua that proclaimed that, "as for me and my house we will serve the Lord." Father, that is my daily prayer that my home may be a place where You alone are Lord and You alone are worshipped and honoured.

I pray that each member of my household will choose to serve You as their God, for You alone are worthy of our praise and service. May each one of us seek to honour You all the days of our life.

Surround each member of this home with Your love and protection both during the day, and throughout the hours of darkness. Help each of us to love You with all our heart and soul and mind and spirit, and live our lives in a manner that truly serve and pleases You .

Bless each member of our home I pray, and Lord, wherever any of us go, may we all keep You as the centre of our lives. May each one be mindful of the love and grace that You have poured out on us, by sending Your Son to redeem our lives from destruction.

Thank You, Father, that You are our God.
