Yesterday around 3:45pm Brian prayed this prayer.
"Father in Heaven,
Please give us wisdom in this investment, and place Your blessing on our purchase of this house if it be Your will. Please look to our future and only bless us with this house if it is wise. Please keep the area safe for our children physically and spiritually. Thank you for the generosity of others who have worked hard to help us purchase this house. Thank you for the low interest rate and successful preapproval we received.
When unexpected repairs or expenses come with this house, may we look to You with fullness of faith to provide for these things. We are confident that, if you bless us with this house, You will also bless us with the means to afford and maintain it well.
Father, help us guard our hearts against pride or discontentment in this house. Help us not forget how You have provided for all of our needs, in every home we have lived, and that this house is truly more than we need.
May we never forget the prayers you have answered, and will continue to answer, in this house.
Let us use this house as a resource to raise children who live to serve You. May our home, wherever it may be, be filled with contentment and holiness.
Then we signed our names on a dotted line. And 5 hours later our offer was accepted and now we are the owners of a charming 2 bedroom 1 bathroom home we call "Pleasant House".
