Home Builders Prayer
We will tell of Your unfailing love; We praise You, Abba, for all You have done for us. You have richly blessed Your people because of Your mercy and constant love. (Isaiah 63:7)
Thank You, Abba, that You are the builder of our home, for You are the builder of all things (Hebrews 3:4), we acknowledge and praise You, so that You will keep our path straight (Proverbs 3:5-6) and so that we do not labor in vain. (Psalm 127:1)
It is happening. I cannot say it has not been stressful, but it is happening. Some say, "if a marriage survives the building of a house, it can survive anything." Yep. The Lord is helping us through it though, and we are blessed to have great workers and faithful prayer warriors.
Teach us to number our days so we can apply our hearts to wisdom. (Psalm 90:12) Let Your pleasantness and favor be upon us and You establish the work of our hands. (Psalm 90:17)
Keep us filled with your Holy Spirit so that justice will dwell in the wilderness, And righteousness remain in the fruitful field. The work of righteousness will be peace, And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. Thank You, Abba, for allowing us this home, a peaceful habitation, a secure dwelling place, quiet and restful, even if hail comes down on the forest, And the city is brought low in humiliation. (Isaiah 32:15-19)

Protect us and our workers, with Your wisdom and understanding, so that we will use discretion to be mindful of the cost and to prepare accordingly in finding and securing the proper materials and labor for establishment. (Proverbs 2:11, 24:3,7, Luke 14:28) Because we have made You, Adonai, Most High, our habitation we know that no evil will cause us to fall, neither will any plague come near our dwelling, for You give Your angels charge over us to keep us in Your ways. (Psalm 91:9-11)
We know that You, Adonai shall supply all of our needs according Your riches in glory by Yeshua Ha Mashiach. Now to You, our Abba, Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. (Philippians 4:19-20)
