We're showing the house again today

Dear God,
As you know we are showing the house again today. Though we have had a contingency contract for 3 months, our agent is insisting that we make the house available to others. And so I come to you today to ask that you help me not to want to beat family members because none of them know how to make a bed or clean their rooms or empty a trash can. Please help me to remember that every dirty sock I find just means we have clothes to wear and every cup and plate hidden under the sofa means we have plenty of food to eat.
Thank you for not sending any more potential buyers who make comments such as "The house is too old. I want a new house" or " I don't like the wall colors" or "Why are there boxes everywhere and nothing on the walls? It looks empty." Take from me the urge to murder all of these idiots and the sadistic Realtors who inflict these people upon me.
Help me to find every unpleasant odor and fabreeze it out of existence. Assist me to find every smudge, finger print and crumb and remove them from the sight of any who would make an offer on this house.
And most of all Lord, please sell this house for good today. My dream home in the country is waiting and I desperately want to attend to things there rather then here. And help me to hold on to what little sanity I have left.
Thank you ahead of time for these blessings.

I pray your prayers are answered soon. That was a very nice prayer and surely will be heard.

Well, this is difficult because I am not sure, no I am certain, I am not the one to ask for help. Go ahead and whip your family into shape, murder the Realtors, and pass out clothespins to help with orders. And if you need a place to run and hide, I will happily house a

Hugs ~

Oops, typo. I meant oders.
