A Prayer for Those Trying to Sell a Home

Our home is for sale. Interested? It’s a great place and a great deal… Let me know. I can set you up. Of course, it’s a lousy time to be selling a house. We don’t have a choice… We’re moving temporarily to Hawaii. I know, I know, from Minnesota to Hawaii for the winter… You’re not feeling sorry for us… But in all candor, it’s troubling prospect. We have a great home in a great area and we’re positioned at a great price. Still, in the last 6 weeks we’ve had three showings. The market just isn’t budging. And if the market gurus are the be believed, it may not get any better anytime soon. With thousands of thousands of foreclosures still pending, true market value is still hard to determine. Nothing is moving.


For many of us this is a challenge and for some, even a crisis. We need God’s wisdom and sustaining strength. We need him to play matchmaker and bring us the right buyer, someone searching now for just what our home offers. He can do that…

“God, we thank you that we can trust you for a roof over our head. You promise this and you deliver! We thank you for giving us our home. We need to pass it off into other hands now, however, and we ask for your blessing in this process. We ask you to be our primary real estate agent. Bring us together with the right buyer, someone looking now for the specific criteria we offer. Play matchmaker, Father. Give us wisdom to make any changes in the home itself or in our expectation of price to bring this about. Give us creativity to look outside the box and to think of new possibilities. We trust you with this whole transaction. Act soon. In Jesus…”

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful prayer. I am the spouse of a wounded warrior recently released from active duty and we are moving out of state to be near my family to help with my husband’s care. We own our home at our current duty station which is 1200 miles from where we are moving to. We step out in faith.

    Thank you for this inspirational prayer. My wife and I are in a similar circumstance. We are moving temporarily to St. Louis from KC. We love our house and neighbors, but opportunity presented itself for me to move forward in my career. However, my wife took a big pay cut and we cannot afford to hold onto our original house. Now we have just a few weeks to find a renter or buyer, or we will be sunk. Hope someone out there might be able to help us, or provide moral support.

    Thank you, I will pray this inspirational prayer based on God Word. Our house is on big property in country. The garden maintenance has become increasingly more difficult as the years go by. I also need to find a job as there is non in this small town, and believe if we move to the city I will have a better opportunity to find employment. It is also my desire to become debt free, as it is becoming difficult to keep up with the mortgage payments.

    Life can be very displeasing especially when we loose the ones we love and cherish so much. in this kind of situation where one loses his/her soul mate there are several dangers engage in it. one may no longer be able to do the things he was doing before then success will be very scarce and happiness will be rare. that person was created to be with you for without him things may fall apart.
    That was my experience late last year. but thank god today i am happy with him again. all thanks to DR AKPAKPA, i was nearly loosing hope until i saw an article on how DR AKPAKPA could cast a love spell to make lovers come back. There is no harm in trying, i said to my self. i contacted him via email: words will not be enough to appreciate what he has done for me. i have promised to share the good news as long as i live.

    Please pray for us to sell our house. We have had it on the market for about 6 weeks. We’ve had several people look at it, but no offers yet. We just had two other houses in our area go on the market. Please pray for God’s will to be done in selling our home. We have to sell the house before August 2 and it’s June 29. Having another open house tomorrow. Please pray that God sends us a buyer tomorrow. Thank you

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Experienced Prayer

    1) Say out loud the Lord’s Prayer.
    2) Then read somme of the Psalms of thanks in The Bible (last ones are good).
    3) Now — Dear God, You know we need to sell this house by ___. We pray that you send us the right buyers and it sells for full price. And we pray the Blood of Jesus over it all and ask for protection of Archangel Michael too.
    4) Chip away: In the name of God, I now pray that: All resistance must give way to the sale of our house by ______ for full price. Blaze, blast, shock, and fill with the Holy Spirit everything to do with the same. Keep this activated 24/7 around the clock until it is sold. -Then 15 solid minutes of: All resistance must give way to the sale of our house by ___ for full price– (15 minutes of the repeated out loud, over and over. Do it EVERY day until sold. Visualize people coming to the house to look at it and then signing ‘bought’ papers. Feel expectant. It will happen.) Do not waver in your faith one bit. God is good. It will sell. Finish with praise and amen ! *This prayer works.

  • David

    Amen brother. I will be praying for you also. We too are facing the same situation. I have to sell our home so I can relocate to Australia to take up a PhD scholarship. If I cant sell the house soon I will be in serious financial trouble and I am very anxious about it. I have handed it over to the Lord. Your prayers for me and my young family would be greatly appreciated. All the best, David

    • MarkandJill

      Let’s agree in prayer, David!
      Father, we thank you for the fantastic opportunity in front of David and his family. With opportunity comes challenge. With challenge comes the assurance that you are intimately interested and concerned in every detail of our lives, not the least of which is our financial state of affairs. Father, we ask for favor upon David and his family. We ask for resolution regarding the house. If there is another option besides selling, make that crystal clear and send a renter soon, Father. We come against fear in Jesus’ name. We stand in faith, knowing you are great and your arm is strong and long enough to reach into our lives and circumstances. Thank you that you respond to our prayers, that our prayers cause the tipping point in our circumstances when we agree together in your will. Align our lives with your will so that we can always discern what you are saying in every season of our lives. Father, we are expecting an answer and we rejoice even now! You are working! We love you, Lord!~ Amen!
      P.S. David, our house didn’t sell.(This blog post is a few years old.) But the Lord provided someone to lease it for two years! God is faithful! We took it off the market and rented it, using a housing rental company. Keep us posted!

      • David

        Thank you Mark and Jill. I will keep you posted.
        Best regards, David

  • kyeiabs

    Hi everyone, I will endeavour to join you in prayer and would appreciate your prayer support also. Quick back story i was in the process of selling my home which took a step of faith to do so, immediately had a buyer and i accepted the offer. Not long afterwards i received news at work of a restructure/redundancies. Only to be informed by the real estate agent that the buyer has now pulled out with no explanation and refuses to take his call. Please pray along with me that God will grant me victory through this. Thank you

    We could also use prayer warriors right now! We listed our house and in 2 weeks and 1 day had an accepted offer. Sounds amazing right? We put in an offer on our “dream home” and it was accepted as well. Things were going so smooth! All utilities were set to turn off at our old house and on at our new house as we were set to close on both homes on the same day. 3.5 weeks before closing we were told our buyer’s loan didn’t go through. So we didn’t sell our home, and we had to let go of our new home. Our home has been back on the market 2.5 weeks without a single showing. Ours is not a case of relocation, but more space and place. I bought our home before I ever began dating my husband. Now I have an amazing husband and an energetic 6 year old step daughter and we need a little more space! Please pray for us as we start this whole process over, thank you! :)

    • MarkandJill

      Jane, this must be so disapointing for you… I thought you were going to say that you now own two homes! At least you don’t have that to deal with. I trust that The Lord has something even better for you.
      Romans 8:28
      And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
      Father – give this family grace to handle this challenge and provide for them exactly what they need.
