A prayer for Loving New Owners of a Historic Home

by Deborah (Waynesville, NC)

Dear St. Joseph, we truly love our 117 year old house, but declining health is preventing us from caring for it appropriately. We pray for buyers that will take over caring for this magnificent old structure, and that will love it as we have for the past 7 years.

God brought us to this house, and we have given it and the business we run from it ALL of our love and attention. Now we ask that God send us buyers who will do the same. We pray this not only for ourselves, but for descendants of the original family who still reside close by and love to visit occasionally.

Specifically, for one of the original grandchildren who is 90 years old, who finds comfort remembering his youth in this house and raising his family in this house.

Yes, we do need to sell the house and move on to the next chapter of our lives, which will hopefully remain in the service of others through God’s grace. But our request is that the next owners of this grand home find joy in sharing it with all who are drawn to it as we have for so many years.
