After hearing homes sales news today, we will need a little luck and prayer for the real estate market to improve.
I am in no way a religious person, but I guess that I could be labeled as spiritual. Some people maintain that having a statue of St. Joseph, a charm buried in the yard or other symbols of the patron saint of carpentry. In this environment, we have to pray that homes begin to sell.
There are actual home selling kits available on line...they are available in various sizes with the starter kit that includes a 4" statue, protective burial bag, prayers, instructions and a book.
As they say, it can't hurt!
PRAYER TO SAINT JOSEPH FOR SELLING A HOUSEO, Saint Joseph, you who taught our Lord the carpenter's trade, and saw to it that he was always properly housed, hear my earnest plea. I want you to help me now as you helped your foster-child Jesus, and as you have helped many others in the matter of housing. I wish to sell this [house/property] quickly, easily, and profitably and I implore you to grant my wish by bringing me a good buyer, one who is eager, compliant, and honest, and by letting nothing impede the rapid conclusion of the sale. Dear Saint Joseph, I know you would do this for me out of the goodness of your heart and in your own good time, but my need is very great now and so I must make you hurry on my behalf. Saint Joseph, I am going to place you in a difficult position with your head in darkness and you will suffer as our Lord suffered, until this [house/property] is sold. Then, Saint Joseph, i swear before the cross and God Almighty, that i will redeem you and you will receive my gratitude and a place of honour in my home. Amen.
