Praying when you are building a new house, or laying the foundation of a new construction project is as important as having the funds to do so.
So many people start their housing projects, and have a groundbreaking ceremony but cannot finish due to one issue or the other. It is one thing to lay the foundation of a new building, it is also another thing to complete such a project.
What Bible Says About Building a House
To underline the importance of committing your building projects to God’s hands, the Bible specifically said ‘except the Lord build a house, they labor in vain that build it?’ (Psalm 127:1, KJV).
Therefore, you must be aligned with God when undergoing some projects, in this case, building, before you can complete such construction. That’s why I have compiled some powerful prayers for you to build a house.
