Thank You for leading us to this house. It is wonderful and just right for our family. We didn’t know which house You would lead us to, but we trusted You. I pray, Lord, that as You led us to this house that You will continue to lead us daily. We give You the honor, praise and glory this day!
1st Time Home Owner
Trying to find a home was so exciting! I never imagined having my own home would be so invigorating. Lord, this was a new process and I thank You for putting the right people in my life to make this happen. My realtor was very kind and answered all of my questions to help me purchase this home. As I learn to maintain this home, Father, maintain my heart and help me to always remember that this home is not my forever home. You have a room ready for me in glory! I love You, Lord!
I pray for your blessing on this home. Some problems have risen that I did not see coming and I fear how much money I may have to put into repairing these issues. I know I can fix the minor issues, but the heater is out. Father, I pray that this issue is really an easy, small problem and that I won’t have to purchase a new unit to keep the house warm. Father, give me peace to know that Your blessing is still here even in the midst of uncertainty.
My New Neighborhood
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!
For Husbands And Wives Only
I thank You for leading my wife and me to this home. It is just perfect for us and for the family we want to have. Lord, I pray for Your blessing on this home that it will one day fill with children for us to love and care for. Bless our marriage, Father. Bless our marriage bed. As we walk with You, we pray that You will bring us closer to each other every day. We love this house and we love You! Bless our future here, Father.
Those With Children
We thank You for this wonderful home You have blessed us with! I pray for each of my kids, Lord, that they will be blessed with many memories to cherish as they grow older. I have so many wonderful memories of my childhood and I pray the same will be said for my kids. Help me, Lord, to be the best mom/dad that I can be for them all. Help me to be the best husband/wife that I can to show my kids and my spouse that they mean so much to me! I am excited for the future in this home and I pray for Your blessing to continue in it throughout the years.
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!
If you have recently purchased a home, congratulations! Pray for God’s blessing in it and on you as well. May God bless you all as you continue to live a life worthy of the calling!

Moving into a new home is an exciting time because it brings new beginnings and hope for dreams fulfilled. Whether you are a newly married couple, a family starting a new journey in a new town or single and buying your first place, take time to breath in the excitement of renewed hope. Allow God’s blessings into your home as you put photos on the walls, remodel the kitchen, invite friends over for dinner parties and celebrate holidays. Seek His council in each decision, from adopting a dog to deciding whether an extended family member will live with you.
Here are the top seven Bible verses for blessing a new home.
7. Let Understanding and Wisdom be the Foundation
Proverbs 24:3-4 “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.”
There is a lot of thought, energy and time into creating a home. Sometimes this means you feel like rushing into purchasing furniture, but remember that creating a home is more than what you put into it. Make decisions that are wise and help you sustain your home for years to come. Be understanding of each family member when a plate is dropped, window is broken and garage door is backed into. These things happen and the reactions and forgiveness are the glue that helps bring peace to your home.

6. May God Keep Your Home Safe
Numbers 6:24-26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”
The Lord can bless your new home in many ways. Many people dream about a safe haven that brings peace and happiness. Pray for this over your new home as you get settled in. Find ways to secure your home, such as changing the locks and installing a security system.
5. Welcome God Into Your Home
2 Chronicles 7:15-16 “Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will be there for all time.”
The Lord knows all about the new move into your new home and wants to bless it. He is pursuing a relationship with you and your entire family and will help you establish your home if you let Him. Create a sign with your favorite Bible verse and hang it in a place your family will see it each day.

4. Let Your Home be Based on Hard Work
Proverbs 24:27 “Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house.”
You worked hard to earn the money to purchase a home, so continue working hard as you create your home. Let your dreams come true, whether it’s to plant a garden or build an ice skating rink.
3. May Your Home Be Peaceful
1 Samuel 25:6 “And thus you shall greet him: ‘Peace be to you, and peace be to your house, and peace be to all that you have.”
A home is a wonderful thing – something that can be a peaceful haven, but it’s something you have to work to achieve. Allow God to guide you in how to establish and allow your home to become more peaceful each day.
2. May You Dwell In Your Home for Many Years
1 Kings 8:13 “I have indeed built you an exalted house, a place for you to dwell in forever.”
Do you see your home as a place to dwell in forever? God wants this for you, so look for ways that will help you maintain your home for years and years to come. Allow God to establish your home with love, memories, grace and peace.
1. Let Your Home Have Peace
Luke 10:5 “Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’”
Yes, this is another verse about peace! A new home is a chance to create a peaceful haven for you and your family. May God bless you with peace from the first day you move in until the last day your family lives in the home.
A new home can be exciting, but can also bring stresses, so remember these verses as you decide how your household will run. Find ways to make it peaceful and find ways to glorify God in your home. There is a greater reason for why God has blessed you and allow Him to carry out His work through establishing your home.

I am a Christian writer and editor that lives in northern Michigan and thoroughly enjoy music, movies, TV shows, books and other entertainment with a Christian focus. My favorite song is “Oceans” by Hillsong United because it reminds me that has big plans for me and everyone else who puts their trust in Him. There are many movies that have impacted my life, but a few include God’s Not Dead, The Shunning and Letters to God. I also write for www.faithandentertainment.com and love connecting with readers, so please don’t hesitate to contact me! When I’m not writing I enjoy watching movies and laughing with my busy toddler and husband.

When house hunting is difficult, St. Joseph is the one to call.
St. Joseph is widely known as a patron saint of house hunters or those who wish to sell their house. There is even a tradition — more like a superstition — of burying a statue of St. Joseph on the property of a house you wish to sell and placing the house in his care.
Sometimes it can be more difficult to find a new house than to sell an old one. Depending on where you want to live, the options can be extremely limiting. It can take months, sometimes years to find a house that is within your price range and serves the needs of your family.
During those desperate hours of scouring the internet and local ads for the best home, it is helpful to offer a short prayer to St. Joseph. He was in charge of finding a place for Jesus and Mary to live in while on earth and over the centuries has become widely known for his heavenly assistance in securing homes for others.
Here is a brief novena prayer to St. Joseph that can be prayed for nine days in a row for the intention of buying a home (or any intention for that matter). The important part of this spiritual exercise is to give everything to God, trusting that he will provide in your time of need.
Glorious St. Joseph, foster-father and protector of Jesus Christ! To you do I raise my heart and hands to implore your powerful intercession. Please obtain for me from the kind Heart of Jesus the help and graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare. I ask particularly for the grace of a happy death, and the special favor I now implore (insert intention).
Guardian of the Word Incarnate, I feel animated with confidence that your prayers in my behalf will be graciously heard before the throne of God.
V. O glorious St. Joseph, through the love you bear to Jesus Christ, and for the glory of His name,
R. Hear my prayers and obtain my petitions.
