Praying for a home

The following prayer and scriptures are for the single Christian women who may be searching for a Prayer for a Husband from God.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God does not plan to abandon us, but to give us the future we hope for. God’s love surpasses knowledge and we could only imagine (Ephesians 3:19). The Bible also commands us that we should bring “everything in prayer and supplication.” To pray for a husband, if it is the desire of a woman’s heart, is therefore very biblical for God has commanded us to pray for our every need and desire. It is also right to expect God to lovingly answer our prayer with something that reflects His exceeding goodness! Without faith, it is impossible to please God!

However, it is also true that praying for a husband can become very challenging when we are asked by God to wait for the answer indefinitely. But one thing is sure, His promise in His Word is true – He

Praying For A Husband

always provides for our every need, even the grace to wait for His perfect time.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Luke 12:24 (NASB) “Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds!”

Psalm 103:1,5 (NASB) “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.”

 Ephesians 3:17-19 (NASB) “…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (The Message) “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”

Psalm 37:4 (NASB) “Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.”

If we will choose to delight in God (Psalm 37:4) and trust Him with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5 ff.), He will lead us to His perfect will, which is good beyond our imagination. There are many single women I know who are joyful and fulfilled despite the yet unanswered prayer for a husband. I also know of women, who have prayed and received a wonderful answer, now being married. I believe that both these groups of women are successful in their prayers because they learned to trust and depend on God to be their source of joy and strength.

But what if our godly mate is already ready for us and waiting but it is you who are not yet ready for him? Another element is that we should also pray for God to prepare us to be a godly wife.

Lastly, because each of us is unique, our prayers should definitely be marked by unique requests based on our desires and even calling or purpose in life. A missionary friend of mine, for example, is asking God for someone with a similar passion for missions. Thus, our prayers for a husband may vary but it will be good to keep in mind that they should be faith-filled prayers based on God’s Word, and honest, heartfelt prayers that are expressions of our trust and intimacy with our Heavenly Father.

———–

Abba Father, I thank You that you love me and that You have an awesome plan for my life! You have plans to give me the future that I hope for.  As I lift up to you my desire for a godly spouse, continue to conform the desires of my heart to Your heart’s desires. Cause me to delight in You more than any other thing.  Prepare me also to be the godly wife, that I will be a rare jewel of a blessing to my future mate. Raise me up to be a Proverbs 31 woman who lives in the fear of You (Proverbs 31:30). Preserve me for my future mate and guard my heart. (Song of Solomon 2:7, 8:9)

I thank You God that even as You are preparing me, You are also raising up for me a man who loves Jesus with all his heart, mind, soul and strength — a man after Your very heart (Matthew 22:37). Raise him up in Your Word, let him be meditating on Your precepts day and night, and bring him success in all he does (Psalm 1, Joshua 1). Bless him and fill him with the knowledge of Your love (Philippians 1:9) and Holy Spirit. May he always about in joy and in the fruits of the Spirit (Romans 15:13). Keep his eyes and his ways pure. I pray that he will make a covenant to guard his eyes and heart (Job 31:1)!

I also pray that he will be a man who is able to lead in righteousness, justice and love (Psalm 45). Raise him up to be a godly husband and father.  Thank You Lord that You know me well and You know how to pick the best mate for me. I trust in Your perfect will and I pray that I will recognize it in the right time. You make everything beautiful in Your time!  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

We know that the Lord will answer your prayers for a husband because He says he who finds a wife finds a good thing!  Be blessed and stay patient.  If you are looking for other prayers, we have many on this website – take a look : Prayers

A few months ago someone asked for prayers for selling their home.  After praying for the person another lady who was standing close by and heard the request said that she was a realtor and advised the individual to bury the statue of Saint Joseph in the front yard and that would cause the house to be sold quite fast.

Have you heard of this before?

Apparently, there are realtors who keep a stock of St. Joseph statues solely for the purpose of selling the house of their clients!  They dig a hole in the yard of the house and bury the statue as some kind of good luck charm to sell the house.

Let me first say that this is not biblical.  There is no scripture in the bible that supports burying anything to get God to do anything for you.  If you have this scripture, please feel free to leave it in the comments below. This sounds more like witchcraft than it does something that is coming from the Almighty God! To be clear, the St. Joseph in reference is the husband of Mary.  Here is what Wikipedia has to say about this click here

When you are trying to sell your house you must first ask yourself a few questions.

1.  Why is my home for sale?  Did God direct me to do this?

2.  Is my home reasonably priced or am I being greedy?

3.  Is my house properly staged and does it look presentable so that someone would want to buy it?

4.  Do I have a good realtor?  The truth is sometimes it’s just best to stay away from family members or someone who just got their license and wants to practice on you!

You see, if God wants you to sell that house and move then you will sell the house really fast.  You’re not going to need to worry about the economy because God is bigger than that!  He can sell your house when no one else’s house is selling. So there is absolutely no need for you to have any fear that it will not sell.

(2 Timothy 1:7)For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

You also can’t be too greedy expecting the buyer of your home to pay more than what is a reasonable asking price.  You need to do your home work and know what the comps are in your area.  What is the home worth?

(Leviticus 25:14) “‘If you sell land to any of your own people or buy land from them, do not take advantage of each other.”

Yes!  We all want the wonderful testimony of how God blessed us in the sale of our home and we made so much money doing it BUT this should never be at the expense of taking advantage of someone else.  God is watching and this will not be pleasing to Him.  The money you made from being dishonest in that deal will be taken from you in so many other ways.  It’s just not worth it.  Be honest.

You want to make sure that your house is staged properly for a sale.  Bottom line, clean your house!  This is a simple thing but the truth is that most people neglect to consider that just by clearing away clutter and organizing their home, the sale can be quite quick.  If you have animals try to make sure your house doesn’t smell like the animal.  If you’re so accustomed to this, then ask a friend to tell  you honestly how your house looks and smells.  Invest in some plugins or something to clean the air and make your home pleasant.  It’s these little things that can make a big difference especially if you don’t have the money to paint or do other major repairs.

Do some research online about staging your home for sale and make sure to do all that you can to be ready for your buyer.

Find a realtor that has experience selling your type of house. The price range, the area and has a track record for selling homes.  It seems that everybody these days has a real estate license.  This doesn’t mean that you should make yourself the guinea pig!  Just because your family member has a real estate license doesn’t mean they should be selling your home.  If they are good at what they do, that’s fine.  Or if God told you to give them the listing.  You need to pray about this as well. Use wisdom.

Please keep this very important point in mind, you are only selling your house to one person. All you need is just one person.  You don’t have to worry about ratios of how many people need to look at your house before it is sold.  You just need one.  God can provide that one person for you with the first person that walks through the door.

So here are the prayers that you will need to get your house sold.

Praying to find a realtor

Heavenly Father, in obedience to you I am ready to sell my house.  Thank you for leading me to this point.  Guide me to finding the right realtor for this decision.  Direct my steps to the real estate agent that you wish to bless with my listing.  I pray that you will continue to build them up in wisdom, understanding and knowledge to list my house, give me good directions and finding the right buyer, in your name Jesus I pray, Amen!

Now it’s time to pray for your buyer

Prayer for the buyer of my house

Lord God, I pray for the buyer that you have for my house. Wherever they are right now Lord please begin to remove every obstacle that would prevent them from seeing my home.  Guide them here.  Give them the desire to want to live in my area.  Provide the financing they need to qualify to purchase this home at my asking price.  Get them pre approved and ready to close very quickly.  Bless them financially and prepare their hearts to care for this home as much as I cared for it.  In Jesus Name, Amen.

And, here is the final prayer which is one for you to sell your home

Prayer to Sell my home

Father God, thank you for blessing me with this home.  Thank you for the enjoyment that I received from it for the years that I have lived here.  Show me what I need to do to prepare it for sale.  I pray that my house will sell very fast.  I will not have any fear in my heart because I know that you have the right buyer lined up to purchase it.  I pray that you will grant me grace to be honest and not greedy in what I am asking.  I know that I only need one buyer and I ask that you will send them quickly.  I promise to tithe on the increase that you will bring from this sale and to honor you in this business dealings.  I also pray for the new place where you will be taking me.  That you will have it prepared for me that i will find much joy and peace in that new home, in Jesus Name, Amen.

We know that God will do an amazing thing in selling your home fast.  Remember, you don’t need any st. Joseph statues to sell your house you just need to pray, believe God and know that He will grant you the desires of your heart.

What do women of a certain age talk about at the hairdresser’s?

Men, kids, jobs, aging parents, exercise apparel, men — and real estate.

‘Did you plant St. Joseph like I told you?’ Marie asked when I told her my house had generated zero interest in three weeks on the market.

“Did you plant St. Joseph like I told you?” Marie asked when I told her my house had generated zero interest in three weeks on the market. In real estate-speak, the house was called “spacious and gracious.” It sits on a quiet cul de sac, with an acre-plus lot that backs up to a pond where swans swim by. Happy children ride bikes and play soccer in the gracefully landscaped street. Dogs mind their manners. An annual cookout brings the generations together for revelry. Our realtor had predicted a mob-scene of competing offers. Instead: flat line. No one had outright said they hated the house. But no one wanted to buy it, either.

Marie, a one-woman shop in a less-than-glamorous section of a less-than-glamorous Boston suburb, folded another foil into my scalp. Her neighbor on one side is some kind of woodworker, and on the other, a merchant who caters to hobbyists, particularly electric train fanatics. This location is a major improvement over her previous spot, where her neighbor was a “therapeutic” massage studio. Based on the noises that crossed through the walls, one could only imagine the sort of therapy that went on.

Marie specializes in color. She honed her craft in Florida, so she knows from blonde. She also knows from saints and sacred ceremonies.

“You didn’t bury St. Joseph?” asked Mary Margaret, the only other client in the shop that afternoon. Her tone was somewhere between incredulous and pitying as she added: “Oh my.”

Elizabeth Mehren: “Would St. Joseph work for heathen homeowners like me and my husband?” (Jeff Hester/flickr)

Weaving in more foils, Marie reminded me of the rules of the ritual of St. Joseph: Bury him upside down, close to the house, “and make sure he faces the house. Otherwise he might sell the wrong one.” Pray to him daily, and once he works his magic, dig him up and place him in a position of honor in the new home.

Mary Margaret flashed her phone screen at me. There it was, right there on Amazon, “the St. Joseph Home Sale Kit.” Better yet, St. Joseph was available for under $8 and was eligible for Amazon Prime.

“You’ll have him in two days,” said Mary Margaret.

There was one slight complication. Would St. Joseph work for heathen homeowners like me and my husband?

“Of course,” said my architect goddaughter. Her own non-believer sister in New Orleans finally turned to St. Joseph after her gorgeous Garden District home spent months on the market, nary a nibble. In New Orleans, it turns out, St. Joe is available at local hardware stores. A week after she planted him, the house sold.

Similar stories poured in. No market movement, none at all. Plant St. Joseph and boom, the house sells.

“You’re not really going to bury that thing?” my pragmatic Yankee husband asked as I extracted the three-inch, ivory-hued plastic icon from the Amazon box. I didn’t answer. I was too busy reading the accompanying prayer card.

Monday morning I felt vaguely heretical as I dug a hole near my front porch and placed the foster father of Jesus in, head first. What was this upside down thing, anyway? I faced him toward our dining room, then read him his prayer.

This is a true story. By 5 p.m. we had a strong, solid offer.

Pray to him daily, and once he works his magic, dig him up and place him in a position of honor in the new home.

Not only does St. Joseph work in wondrous ways, but he is also very modern, evidently maintaining some kind of saintly data base. Thanks, I assume to Joe, I am now on the actual and electronic mailing lists for many other saints. Most recently, St. Anthony of Padua offered to intercede with my troubles, “no matter how large or small.”

Sorry, Tony. For now, I am partnered with St. Joseph, who continues to smooth out our real estate wrinkles. No sooner had we obtained remodeling permits for our new condo than structural issues in the building turned up. While the homeowners’ association threw up its collective arms (and, more noisily, its strident voices) in alarm, we read St. Joseph his prayer and placed him on a sunny shelf with a commanding view out the living room window.

Remodeling starts next week.
