Let $M = G/H$ be an $(n+1)$-dimensional homogeneous manifold and $J^k(n,M)=:J^k$ be the manifold of $k$-jets of hypersurfaces of $M$. The Lie group $G$ acts naturally on each $J^k$. A $G$-invariant PDE of order $k$ for hypersurfaces of $M$ (i.e., with $n$ independent variables and $1$ dependent one) is defined as a $G$-invariant hypersurface $\mathcal{E} \subset J^k$. We describe a general method for constructing such invariant PDEs for $k\geq 2$. The problem reduces to the description of hypersurfaces, in a certain vector space, which are invariant with respect to the linear action of the stability subgroup $H^{(k-1)}$ of the $(k-1)$-prolonged action of $G$. We apply this approach to describe invariant PDEs for hypersurfaces in the Euclidean space $\mathbb{E}^{n+1 }$ and in the conformal space $\mathbb{S}^{n+1}$. Our method works under some mild assumptions on the action of $G$, namely: A1) the group $G$ must have an open orbit in $J^{k-1}$, and A2) the stabilizer $H^{(k-1)}\subset G$ of the fibre $J^k\to J^{k-1}$ must factorize via the group of translations of the fibre itself.
