Home Prayer

House hunting is proving to be more difficult and stressful than imagined.  The market here is considered a sellers at the moment with low inventory, houses going quick and often times at list price or for more than they are even worth!  Considering we have a limited budget at the moment, and are trying to plan a wedding for this summer, the process feels overwhelming.

We have had to increase our budget as well, which scares me as things are already tight.  Honestly worried that we are going to over extend ourselves in this sellers market.  Problem is there are just no lower priced houses right now, the ones that are either need major renovations that would cost a lot or are in not so great neighborhoods.  Feels like we are stuck between a rock and hard place right now. 

Every time we look at a house, or get ready to make an offer my body keeps going into that flight or fight feeling of adrenaline rushes.  I get so nervous and worried it's crazy.  Our first offer we lost because someone out bid us. There were two other houses we went to make an offer only they had offers made and accepted before we could even get ours in.  I'm not so much of a competitive type, the fact that we have to compete financially against others for each house stresses me out.  The stress and worry is just too much at this point. The first thing that comes to mind is how very much we need God's guidance and input. 

While I've been praying for help with our house search think I need to have more faith, trust that whatever is meant to be will happen.  We need to put it in God's hands, to trust him with our hopes and desires.  Even the bible says "ask and ye shall receive"  So I'm going to put my dream house out there for God and the universe to help guide us to.  Whatever we shall receive we will be grateful for. With that I offer up this prayer.

Thank you Lord for hearing and responding to my prayer for our housing situation.  I release my anxiety and fears, and focus on my faith in your power and provision.  I stand on my faith believing that our housing needs of a beautiful place to live with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, renovated kitchen, hardwood/laminate floors, dry/finished basement, fenced in yard, lots off windows and light, central air, nice porch/deck, ample storage/closets, great neighborhood close to family will be realized.  A house we can comfortably afford on our budget. I will know when we have found the right place to live because I will feel peaceful on every level.  

Thank you for placing us in the right place at the right time to meet the right people.  I thank you God in advance for how you can work this out. I have no fear, for you are with peace, my protection and my provision. Thank you for placing heavenly and earthly angels in my life to guide me. I believe what you have done for others, you can do for me. I am willing to receive the richness of your blessings and anticipate a joyful outcome in all respects. 

Grant me favor so that I may learn soon of approval of my place to live.  I will share our goodness with others so they may know of your power and glory.  I trust your promise from 1 Corinthians 2:9 "that no eye has seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the hearts of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him."  So I will dream big and keep my worries small.  I feel better, encouraged and ready now for my breakthrough.  Thank you God for being the center of my joy and the source of my amazing new home! Amen.
