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…”

    My family is trying to sell our house too, and we are having a tough time. I will be praying this prayer whenever I have a free minute throughout the day. I hope God heard your prayer and blessed you with a buyer. God Bless <3

    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.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Suzannah

    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: afiamensolutionshrine@yahoo.com. 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

  • CJane44

    Hello,
    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.

  • Connie Beacht Keim

    hello,
    i am currently trying to sell my home so i can move to a better area and school district. i am a single mom. it has been difficult to say the least. i have exactly 3 months to sell my home, find a new one and relocate!! yikes!! but i know if it is God’s will, it can and will happen!! prayers appreciated for our endeavor

    • MarkandJill

      A friend of mind often prays, “Lord, if this is a good thing, make it happen.” Then she puts it in God’s hands and leaves it there. He often makes things happen!
      Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
      do not depend on your own understanding.
      Seek his will in all you do,
      and he will show you which path to take. (Prov. 3:5-6)
      God Bless you, Connie.

  • beewilliams84

    Hello all our house is on the market and we could use prayer as well. My husband and I have 3 sons and we are selling our current home to move into a bigger home we are having built in another school district bOur house has been on the market a little over 4 months we had 1 offer that didn’t work out. We are praying that our current home sells and our new home is ready before school begins. We know in order for this to work it will totally be through God’s intervention. Thanks for the prayers in advance and I’m praying for all of you as well.

    • MarkandJill

      God bless you and give you wisdom and favor as you sell your house!
      “Commit everything you do to the Lord.
      Trust him, and he will help you.

  • KCMarch10

    Good day all. We have had our home on the market now for the past few weeks. However, we haven’t had any showings in the past 2 weeks. We need to sell this home in the next 30 days and we’ve put it into God’s hands to lead us through this process. Please pray for us through these endeavors. Thank you.

    • MarkandJill

      Father, give your beloved wisdom and favor in their effort to sell their home. Please attract just the right buyer who will find this home to be a blessing and a place of peace for their family!

      Let your favor shine on your servant. In your unfailing love, rescue me. Psalm 31:16

  • Angela

    Hi are house had been on the market for over a year and we have had one offer but it was 40,000 below asking price now we kick are selves for not taking it. We coukd really use some prayers

    • MarkandJill

      Angela, we serve a God who can work with anything, including our regrets and mis-steps! I’m so grateful for that! May the Lord send a buyer for your house soon. In the meantime may He give you wisdom in all the marketing details to make your house stand out in the market. God bless you, my friend! Take heart:
      “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.” Romans 8:28

  • Rosemary

    My husband is hoping to retire and our plan is to move to the Jersey shore to an adult community and hopefully, a simpler lifestyle for him. I want so much for him to be happy and relaxed after almost 50 years of working. I still have a few more years to go myself but will be working from home as I currently do. We’ve had the house on the market for a month now and have had a lot of showings but no offers. We have so many happy memories here and would love to stay but the high taxes and my husband’s retirement are the primary reasons for moving. We are putting it all into God’s hands and trust in Him to find the right buyer who will love this home and make their own memories in it.

    • MarkandJill

      Thanks for sharing, Rosemary. You’ve placed it all in the Best of Hands!
      Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. (Psalm 37:5)

  • amanda

    Please pray that my parents sell there home soon. It’s been on the market for months with no showings. They already bought a new home so they can retire. I believe in prayers. Thank you

    • MarkandJill

      Lord, we ask for wisdom for Amanda’s parents. Thank you that according to James 1, when we ask for wisdom and we doubt not in your ability to give it, we do receive it. So send it, Lord, please! And grant them favor in their effort to sell their home. In Jesus’ Name!

  • Gina Herrera

    I would ask for prayers. My husband and I have relocated to Louisiana for a job opportunity and have had our house on the market for 2 1/2 months with not a lot of showing activity, I am practicing patience and wisdom in trusting we did the right thing as I’m typically risk adverse. I know that we have a great home and it is priced right I would just ask for bringing the right, fair, buyer to us soon as to avoid major financial distress.

    • MarkandJill

      In Kingdom reality (think quantum reality) it’s already a done deal if we believe. We put our faith together with yours, Gina, for a speedy sale of your home. We stand against fear in Jesus’ mighty name and we speak, sing and shout our faith in God’s promises. We thank Him in advance for bringing the right buyer!

      “Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. (Mark 11:21-24)

  • cindy

    I ask for prayers in selling our house. Recently received retirement pkg and husband is not in good health. We have many lookers but ask for the right buyer. We have a contingency on another house that will be less maintenance and stress for my husband. God has always walked me thru difficult times. Requesting a prayer chain to keep my faith strong and that our house will sell in the time we need. Thank you.

    • MarkandJill

      Father, give Cindy and her husband faith and patience and wisdom!
      Cindy, I cling closely to these words of Jesus’ when I have a mountain to move (moving is like moving a mountain sometimes!) :

      22 Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. 23 I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. 24 I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. (Mark 11) (See verse 25, too!)

      • cindy

        Thank you for yours words of encouragement and bible verses. I am filled with positive thoughts and feel at peace and no longer have doubts in my heart. I feel God’s reassurance of faithfulliness and trust in him completely. I pray for you as you witness to all in need. Have a blessed day.

        • MarkandJill

          Well done, Cindy! Stand firm and be prepared for resistance and testing just in case… God will provide! (Thank you for your kind words.)

          6 So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. 7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

          8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 9 Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are. 1 Peter 5

  • Jonathan Light

    We too need to sell our house primarily due to a drug infested school district, and major allergy problems created by pine pollen here in the mountains of southern CA. Our house has been on the market for 45 days, with about 8 showings and no offers. We request prayers for God to send us the right buyer soon, and that we get the offer needed so we can have a down payment on a new home and cover moving expenses. We so hope we can have the kids relocated before school starts again. Thank you.

    • MarkandJill

      Father, send the Light of your glory to the Light home! Send the right buyer soon, Father, we pray!

      Jonathan, I have this sweet picture in my heart of your family gathered together praying in faith, believing God for a miracle. Our kids’ prayers are mighty and effective in spiritual warfare:

      You have taught children and infants
      to tell of your strength,
      silencing your enemies
      and all who oppose you. Psalm 8:2

  • Nena Podbury

    I am so encouraged by the prayers below. I too would like to ask for prayer that my house would sell. My house has been on the market for 112 days now. We’ve had 25 showings and 2 offers that haven’t fallen through. I need to move so my kids aren’t in school for 11 hours. God is faithful. God is good and I now I need God to be my real estate agent. Thank you

    • MarkandJill

      Love it! Yes! God is our Real real estate agent.
      Father, give Nena favor over her home and a wealth of wisdom! She will do her part, and she is trusting you to bless all her hard work with your supernatural favor and grace. Help her to trust and not to worry! Amen!

      Anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (Heb. 11:6)

  • Anita

    I could use some prayer warriors!! God knows the whole story, but we have reached a place where we desperately need the buyers meant for our house to be brought to it and to place an offer. In two weeks we will have to make a hard decision if the buyers meant for this house are not guided to it. I know that God hears our prayers and I believe in him with all my heart. Please pray that God guides the new owners to the house they will make a home quickly. Amen

    • MarkandJill

      Father, we ask for wisdom and excellent counsel for Anita and her family. Grow her faith to a greater capacity as she trusts in you without wavering. Father give them peace and direction step by step! Amen!

      If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. (James 1:5,6)

  • Randy

    Hi everyone. We could really use some prayers to help sell our house. We need to move away from a bad situation. Thanks!

    • MarkandJill

      Randy, may the Lord give you wisdom and great faith in His provision. Grab a hold of God’s promises and don’t let go, my friend!

  • Lisa

    I’m glad I found this site, I as well need a prayer, my family is trying to move to a bigger state with a lot more work opportunities- houses similar to mine were sold in a week or 2, I am on 30 days on the market & I have showings but No offers – I happen to live in the model home & am priced accordingly or even below & I know deeply that it’s not my house – God is for some reason, not letting us move on to the next chapter in our lives – I pray daily & to no avail – I’m still here waiting patiently for an offer – I don’t know what gods plans are for me & my family?? I’m sure that depression is not on his list. Please give me some guidance

    • MarkandJill

      Father, please give Lisa ears to hear you and a heart to continually trust in your unfailing love. Give wisdom to their family. (Perhaps you are protecting them from something they weren’t anticipating?) Lord, send wisdom and direction to this family we ask in Jesus Name.
      God bless you, Lisa! Keep your faith strong. God’s answer will be worth the wait. You are loved with an everlasting love!

  • Tracy Sickler

    I need some prayer help please !!! My house has been on the market this time since April and then before that it was on the market for one year . We have had tons of showings with 0 offers. I have heard all the craziest things as to why my house is not right for the people looking. I put my trust in you God that you will find the perfect people to love this home as much as I have loved it for the past 10 years . Due to circumstances beyond my control we need this home to sell!!!!! Please, Please help me pray that God will bring in the P-E-R-F-E-C-T family to bless this home !!!!!

    • MarkandJill

      Tracy, we ask that the Lord will give you great wisdom and knowledge and insight and that he would bless your realtor with wisdom as well!
      Lord, please send a buyer to this house to make it theirs. Direct Tracy’s path, Lord, and make Your will clear and give her ears to hear your encouragement and instruction. Amen!

    • MarkandJill

      Tracy – I should add that when Mark wrote this post, our house was on the market for 6 months without a single offer. We took it off and we went back and lived in it another year (after returning from out of state) then rented it out, and it’s still rented out. It worked out for the best… Sometimes God’s Plan A trumps our Plan A.

  • Cindy sechelski

    I ask for prayers and scripture for a house we have a contract on. The house is in foreclosure and the realtor is working with the owners lawyer to see if a quick sale can be made today. Thank you prayer warriors.

    • MarkandJill

      Psalm 37:4 (Amplified)
      Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.

      Father, please give Cindy a download of your deep love and care for her and her family. May the truth of your promises become deeply imbedded in her soul to the point of securing an unyielding faith in you. Make that delight so real that she is capable of walking above every challenge that she faces. In Jesus’ Name.
      God bless you, Cindy!

  • S Han

    I’m also praying for a home sale and the thing is it is really straining my marriage. I accepted a job offer out of state, and was thankful my wife was supportive enough to agree and also leave her job of many years. After so many months of job searching finally I had a place where I thought I belonged. The plan was to sell the house, wipe out a bunch of debt and start fresh. And with the cost of living difference my wife would be free to work part time or however much would suit her. She was really warming up to the idea.
    Now with the house not selling after months of being on the market, it’s as if my wife blames me for not having a backup plan. And she points out that I couldn’t afford to make the move because my new job can’t float both the mortgage and a new place or rent in the new place. It’s really weighing on both of us, but it may be that she decides not to come with me. Her job here probably would pay a lot more than there so this whole thing has turned into simply a matter of money. I really hate that but my wife is wired to think of the financial implications deeply.
    I’ve tried to keep up my faith and believe that God is sending us with a purpose. And that He knows our needs and that if going there was His plan that this house sale would be part of it, too. I still don’t doubt that, and I am praying that God provides a buyer for us so that not only would this move work for us, but that her faith would be greatly strengthened. I so desperately want her to feel God’s hand in this but I just don’t know if it will be too late.
    I’m feeling so weak as a leader/provider and I’m terrible at being a spiritual leader in our family. Part of the idea of moving was to really solidify that role and work on our family relationships. Now it all feels like it’s not going to happen. Please pray for us.

    • MarkandJill

      Father, please bring S Han and his wife to a place of unity. Mark and I know have experienced the battle scars of disunity in marriage, and it’s painful. But YOU can restore harmony to dissonance when we take the time to listen for YOUR best plan. And even when we blow it, you will still work it out for good when we walk in your ways. Your ways are simple: love each other. In Your hands, any mess we give you can be brought to order and peace again. Thank YOU, our dear Prince of Peace. We ask for wisdom according to James 1 without doubting you a single bit! Amen!

  • Shendl Rewitzky

    I am from South Africa, I hope its okay that I post here. We have had our house listed for a month now and have had already had our offer accepted on another house in a better part of the area we stay in with smaller grounds and less maintenance. We have had 2 show house days and one after hours viewing and not one offer!! We have a large property and it does need a little maintenance but not huge amount. Please pray that we find the right buyer soon. We have 2 more months before the whole deal on the other property falls through

    • MarkandJill

      Shendl, you are more than welcome to post here, and we are happy to agree in prayer with you!
      Father, we ask for favor on behalf of Shendl. You know the best path for your children, please make that path clear and free of obstacles. More than anything, we ask that your covenant would be alive and at work in this family, that they would know true joy and true intimacy with You. We ask that your great love would be manifest in their lives and home, in Jesus’ name. Be Lord over their lives. Amen.

  • A Little Bit of Everything

    We could really use some extra prayers. We are building a house that will finally function for our family. We have had our current house on the market for 4 months and only a handful of people have walked through. We have reduced the price by 25k. We are now finding out we need to put in a new well and that is another 5k. So we will be about 30k less than what we know our house is worth. At this point, we will be lucky to walk away with any money. We are at the price we paid for the house 15 years ago. So hard to believe in 15 years we will make nothing on it.

    I am fine with that, but I really need our house to find a buyer. We have about 4 weeks until our new house is ready to move in. Please say prayers that the right person comes along.

    I have had faith that God will send me the buyer when it is the correct time. It’s just hard to keep telling my husband that. I know he is getting very stressed out and causing him to be physically sick, and to be short.

    We ask for prayer for the selling of our home in Maryland. God has truly blessed us with the house we are selling and providing the means to make major renovations. However, it is time to pass this house on to another person or family to enjoy. My elderly mother has recently moved in with us and we found a home where her space is on the first floor. She will not have to maneuver the stairs. We have a contract on house we are purchasing in another part of town. We are suppose to close on this house the end of August but do not have a contract on our current home. We only have a week before the whole deal falls through. I am trying to remain faithful and believe that God is with us. I prayed throughout this transaction and believe that this is God’s will and that he is with us. Right now we need alot of prayer and God needs to be our real estate agent. He has sent many people by our home and many love the home but we have no offers. God please send that one!

    We have had our home for sale for nearly four years now. We bought high in 2007 thinking this was the home God had for us for the rest of our lives. But then, in August 2011 I learned I was losing my job by the end of the year. So we placed our home for sale only to learn the value of our home had fallen to such a degree we were 30,000 under what we still owed on it. I did eventually find another good job a few states away so we had to relocate and make the double house payments for a couple of years. Our finances were drained to such a degree by August 2014 we had to cease making payments on it and begin the short-sale process. And here it is August of 2015 and the bank still has not allowed us to short-sale the home yet. We are not in foreclosure, but the process is taking much longer than I ever dreamed. We just want to be done! Please pray our God will deliver us from this soon! I do not understand why he has allowed this to happen to us and why it has talken so long just to sell a home.

    We recently purchased a new home. Prior to purchasing our hope was to get our old place ready to sell before we purchased and moved into our new home. Due to some unfortunate health reasons, we delayed the selling process and now have two mortgages to pay with the possibility of losing my job at the end of this year. Please pray that we will trust in God’s will and plan for our family, and that in HIS timing he will provide us with a buyer for our old place, and that he will give us the guidance and wisdom we will need to make any changes necessary in our selling process. Thank you for your prayers.

      People with their minds set on you,
      you keep completely whole,
      Steady on their feet,

    We have had our home listed for two months. To date, we have not had a single showing or even a phone call of interest. We held an open house last weekend and only generated gawkers/no one who was looking to buy a home. We are giving it another try with another open house this weekend. We live in a very desirable neighborhood across from a religious grade school so this deafening silence is puzzling. There are several other homes for sale in our subdivision experiencing the same lack of results. We are needing to move to a different school district for our son. School started two weeks ago. I pray that God blesses us with a qualified buyer soon as we are now having to rent an apartment in our son’s school district and carry double payments. Thank you for your prayers.
