St. Joseph’s Prayer to Sell Your House

If you are trying to sell your house have you considered praying to St. Joseph? Selling a home can be a challenging task, so many homeowners pray to St. Joseph, Patron Saint of Real Estate.

Who Was St. Joseph?

Catholic tradition describes St. Joseph as the patron saint of workers, and Pope Pius IX declared him to also be the patron and protector of the Church. In addition, he is regarded as a role model for fathers. For this reason, Catholics often dedicate prayers to Saint Joseph for protection, vocation, marriage, happiness, death, and even for the sale of a home.

The Prayer’s Origin

According to urban legends and historians, a group of nuns had difficulty buying land in the 1500s. As a result, they turned to the legendary patriarch St. Joseph. Their faith in St. Joseph inspired them to bury a statue of him near the land they wanted to purchase, and they prayed for his intercession to the Lord. Soon after, the nun’s prayers were answered. 

Burying the statue of St. Joseph represented an incredible act of faith. Having asked for assistance from St. Joseph, the nuns intensified the power of their prayer to gain the property they desperately desired. 

How Does The Prayer Work?

Praying and following this ritual is believed to bring good fortune when selling a home. St. Joseph is sometimes referred to as “The Real Estate Agent” since God can influence people in many ways through him, including selling a home and relieving financial anxiety.

As part of the ritual, an 8-inch or 3-inch statue of St. Joseph is usually buried on the front lawn. Many people bury it within 2-3 feet of the “For Sale” sign and head down, facing the home. From this point on, praying the St. Joseph prayer and adding the novena sayings every day is very important.

How Does The Prayer Work?

O, 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 honor in my home.

Amen.

Day 8: Give shelter, O God, to those who need it, and bring together families divided. Give us enough to eat and decent work to earn our bread. Care for us, O God.
