I want to start this post by spreading the name of the enigmatic St. Expedite. He works fast, he pulls out the stops and his power and speed is manifested in direct proportion to the urgency of the matter.
This is an important point when considering petitioning this, arguably, the most celebrated saint in contemporary hoodoo. Every so often one hears reports of people giving away their St. Expedite icon, packing up the altar after they decide not to work with him because he seems to be 'ignoring' their petitions. And while it is true that some saints refuse to work with some people for reasons that only they will know I also think that when it comes to St. Expedite it is important to realise "he knows what is urgent and what is needed".
In other words if you badly want that new pair of prada shoes he probably won't be as concerned as if you badly needed a new pair of shoes because your child has no shoes to wear to school. He knows what is urgent and what is needed. If your petition is pressing - if you are backed into a corner, or have an impossible time constraint in a matter, a looming deadline of grave importance - such as: time is running out before they evict you, you need an emergency medical procedure, an emergency loan etc. Then this gracious saint will be on the matter like a bolt of greased lightning.
As a soldier he has strong sense of justice and in my experience is willing and capable of doing harsher works if they are justified. He can bring down a serious pressure on someone if they are obstructing a pressing matter. If they are stalling or otherwise blocking you he can break through that barrier pretty fast and they will wish they had been less obstructive.
Remember, to pay him what you promised for answering your prayers, or he can take back what he gave with interest. Soldiers don't work for free.
And for goodness sake don't procrastinate when doing so! ;-)
