Buy a House? A Prayer for Wisdom

“God, we have a big decision before us. Should we – or not – purchase the house we’re considering? You invite us to ask for wisdom. In James 1 you say it directly: ‘If anyone lacks wisdom, let them ask…’ We’re asking. We’re not smart enough and we don’t know enough of the future to know for certain if this is a fitting investment for us. You do. As you children we’re asking you, our father, for direction. You know all the nuances involved. Guide us. Lead us, as Jesus says, ‘…not into temptation.’ But instead, lead us into the land of blessing you promise. Our pending question: Is the house we’re considering our ‘promised land?’ So speak to us through our own hearts, through the counsel of others we trust, through the circumstances we can’t control, and through ways we can’t imagine. We trust you; and we trust you to guide our lives and our life decisions. This one is big, and it matters. Thank you that we can believe you desire the best for us and that you have the perfect home for our family, a home you will share with us! In Jesus.”

    I am in the process of purchasing a home. The day of inspection we found out that the aircondition unit was stolen and the house has termites. So we did a amendment on the contract: having the unit replaced and the termite issue resolved. Well they did a BPO order and we are waiting on the decision. I’m feeling a certain kind of way. I love this home it has everything I asked God for in it. I ask that the decision works in my favor. I now awaits the decision. I have no other choice but to wait on the decision but my anxious little soul is nervous. Also, I paid for the inspection I don’t want to loose my money.

    Dear God, You were faithful to me and blessed me with a beautiful home. I send prayers, blessings, and faith to those that are still trying. I ask you to grant them peace through the stressful process and faith to know that you are real and true and will give them the blessings you have in store for them. Thank you Lord!
