Say the St Joseph Prayer to Sell a House if you’re having trouble selling your home or property.
Prayer to Sell a House
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 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 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 honour in my home.
After burying the statue, also consider saying a novena to St Joseph. A novena is said consecutively for nine days, and can be an effective means to gaining a favorable intercession on your behalf.

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 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 Honour In My Home.
