Have you considered saying a prayer to St. Joseph to sell your house? Many homeowners turn to praying to St. Joseph, Patron Saint of Real Estate when trying to sell their home. This article covers a St. Joseph prayer strategy that has helped many real estate owners for many years!
St. Joseph Prayer- A Brief History
As you could imagine, selling a house often could be a stressful experience. We lift up our hopes to sell our property as soon as possible, but then life throws us a curveball and we have to deal with the unexpected while fighting our own fears of the unknown. In times of great stress, a great comforter is the power of prayer. Luckily Texan culture embraces a relationship with a Higher Power – I mean Texas is a part of the Bible belt. Did you know that a whopping 18.59% of Texans are Catholics?
Regardless of your religious affiliation, it is comforting to know that Texas is open to religious liberty. A tremendous patriarch of the Bible is St. Joseph (also known by Spanish-speakers as San Jose, and as San Giuseppe by Italians). Who was St. Joseph? St. Joseph was the husband of Mary, who is the Mother of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
St. Joseph was a very patient man. Slander spread of Mary because of her sudden pregnancy, but St. Joseph was steadfast with her, and the truth of the immaculate conception of our Lord was revealed to St. Joseph by the angel of the Lord. St. Joseph was an instrumental part in our Lord’s time on earth. St. Joseph is not only considered the foster-father of Jesus, but also is the Patron Saint of the Family, and the Patron Saint for workers, and husbands, and the Patron Saint of Real Estate.
In the Catholic tradition, saints aren’t prayed to. This is a common misconception. Instead, prayers are recited with the intention of asking a saint for help because they are our friends, Wouldn’t you ask a friend for help? According to urban legend and historians, in the 1500s a group of nuns had a hard time buying a lot of land they wanted. They decided to turn to the legendary patriarch St. Joseph for help. This inspired them to bury a statue of St. Joseph near the land they wanted to buy, and they prayed asking St. Joseph to intercede with the Lord on their behalf.
In a short amount of time, the nun’s prayers were answered. The act of burying the statue of St. Joseph was a tremendous act of faith in the Lord Jesus. Our Lord says if two or more come together in His name, He is among them, and their prayers are strengthened. By asking St. Joseph for help, the nuns increased the power of their prayer to get the property that they just desperately yearned for.
Where to bury the St. Joseph statue?
Did you know that you could buy a Saint Joseph statue similar to the one those nuns used on common online retailers like Amazon, and bury it your front or backyard near the for sale sign? The practice involves planting a small St. Joseph statue, upside down, in the lawn or garden of the home, 2 or 3 feet away from your home’s for sale sign while simultaneously asking for divine intervention.
Prayers to St. Joseph to sell your house
In the Catholic tradition, a novena is a prayer, particularly to a Patron Saint, that is said for nine consecutive days. A persistent prayer could move mountains. Did you know that you too could ask St. Joseph to pray to the Lord Jesus with us? The Lord Jesus said that all who are weary should come to Him to find rest. His strength could relieve the burdens of home selling. Here is a powerful prayer that you could use to sell your home. Remember that prayer is a tremendous force:
St. Joseph Prayer
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.

Day 3: O God, ever faithful, you remember us always and in time reveal your blessings. Help me trust in you, as St. Joseph faithfully trusted, and never let me lose faith in the wonderful gifts you promise me.
Day 4: God of families, bless the family that’s mine. Keep us safe from harm, and never let evil come between us. Let peace remain in our hearts.

Day 6: God of our heavenly home, bless our home on earth. Let the spirit of Mary and Joseph rest at our table, shape our words and actions, and bring blessing to our children.
Day 7: God, our Father, give your fatherly spirit to those who are fathers now. Like Joseph, give them hearts of devoted love for their wives and children and strength for forgiveness and patience.
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.
