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.

Amen.

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.

Saint Joseph is the patron saint of the “worker” and “protector”. Catholics worldwide pray to St Joseph when they are in financial need or they need assistance with a pressing need such as selling their homes.

Brief History of the Prayer

Most historians believe that around 1500 AD, a small group of nuns that had a pressing need to obtain land, turned to burying metals engraved with the St Joseph on them.  This ritual involved the burying, and then praying to the image.  It’s been told that later, the nun’s prayers were answered.  The act of burying the metals with the St Joseph imprinted on them, was their expression of faith, claiming to turn to God for their need, and putting all of their hope and faith in Him.  It’s a fact however, than putting one’s faith in God for his/her needs, doesn’t require a metal, statue, or any other type of man-made image.  It simply requires trust in Him & ” know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28.  In our opinion “works for the good” includes but is not limited to the sale of a house.

How Do People Use the Prayer?

Most Catholics who believe that the St Joseph prayer will actually cause their house to sell, will practice the following ritual.  Actually, even those who don’t have a faith in God, but are superstitious, will practice the ritual:

  1. Purchase a statue of the St. Joseph.  Many retailers of this statue profit from sale of these status, it is easy to find a retailer online
  2. Did a hole within 3 feet of your For Sale sign in front of your house large enough for the Statue.
  3. Place the statue upside down facing toward the direction of the front of your home.   Then…
  4. Those who believe in this practice would repeat the following prayer….

But Is the St Joseph Prayer To Sell A House Legitimate?

To answer the question as to whether or not the Prayer actually works or not, we’ll first need to be clear that we can’t take a subjective look at the prayer.  We can’t even look at statistics of home sale percentages and average days on market for those home owners that did bury the statue and those that did not.  Why?  Well how would you know with a 100% degree of certainty that your home sold faster by participating in the ritual, than if you opted not to?  The truth is, there are so many other factors that cause a house to sell, that it’s impossible to put your finger on any one causing factor…including the St Joseph prayer to sell a house.

So does this mean I’m saying that “there’s no way to know for sure if this prayer works”?  No, I’m not saying that the ritual doesn’t work; I’ll leave that for someone else to answer, but what I am about to claim will undoubtedly be a little controversial, especially for those whom pray to Saints regularly.   Rather than asking if burying a statue a certain way, and then reciting a very specific prayer to a statue/Saint will sell your house fast, a better question would be: Is it biblical to pray to a statue/Saint, no matter what the need is?  Let’s find out.

What does the bible say about Praying to Idols/Statues?

Firstly, the official position of the Catholic church is that Catholics do not pray to Saints directly to answer their prayers, rather they ask the Saints to pray FOR them on their behalf, in essence petitioning for them to “intercede” form them.  Most Catholics that pray to Saints, believe that Saints, because they are in heaven with God, will have more success in “delivering their request” to God than they would if they were to bypass the Saints’ and go to God directly with the request to help them sell their home quickly…or any request for that matter.

Is it true, should we as believers in what Jesus Christ did on the cross, need to go through a “third-party” to intercede for us in our need?  Absolutely not.  Jesus is our intercessor, not the statue of Jesus, but Jesus himself.  John 14:6says “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” .  Notice that He DOES NOT say “no one comes to the father except through a Saint”.  No one can submit his request (real estate, financial, relational, spiritual, emotional ect..) to the Father, unless Jesus and only Jesus is the intercessor.  Further more, because of the finished work that Jesus did on the cross for us, believers can “…approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:16. 

The biblical truth is that IF a person should feel the need to ask a Saint to “deliver” a message asking God to help Him sell their house on behalf of him/her, because they feel that they are not as worthy as the Saints, they are emphatically incorrect.  Worse yet, they are in essence denying the significance and magnitude of what Jesus did on the cross for them.  You see, by Jesus living a sinless life, and being the atonement for our past and future sins (should we accept him by faith), and conquering death, those who believe are able to say that they are Right with God or Righteous in God’s eyes.

In fact, in Leviticus 26:1 we find that it’s a sin as God says: “‘Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it. I am the LORD your God.”.

If praying to a Statue Is a Sin, Then How Can God Help Me?

If you have found yourself in a difficult situation and truly need to sell your house, then I suggest that you go directly to our Father and humbly ask him to help you in your current need.  Somewhere in the prayer I would suggest asking it all to be done in “Jesus’s Name”.  Why, because the Jesus said “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” in John 14:13.  Here’s how I would pray to Him without burying a statue or doing any other superstitious act:

An Example of a Prayer to Sell a House

“Father, you know that I’ve had a difficult time selling our home.  I know that your Word says that you will provide for my every need.  I know that you know my every need before I even ask, so I come before you and ask that you would help me in my current financial situation.  I need to sell this house, but more than that I want Your Will to be done in this situation.  So, I am asking that your Will be done, not my own.  I will continue to trust in You no matter what the outcome is, in Jesus name I ask these things”

Go Ahead, Have Some Faith

There are many, many stories in the Bible that show what even a little faith can do.  Even Faith “as small as a mustard seed” can go a long way in the eyes of God…and that’s one really small seed.  If you’re reading this post, and you are considering selling your house in the near future, let us know, because we buy houses from home owners in distress on a regular basis.

It isn’t hard to realize that the housing market has rebounded, but it can still be difficult to sell a home. Some people become so desperate that they rely upon supernatural methods of garnering interest for their home. This may seem far fetched but there are dozens of people who claim they have improved their good fortunes by reciting the St. Joseph prayer. This is an ancient catholic prayer that has to improve a number of different situations, and it’s even believed to assist in the selling of a home.

St Joseph’s 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 house 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 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.

What is the St. Joseph Prayer

In the four gospels, (Mark, Matthew, Luke and John) Joseph is described as a silent man yet he’s also an individual of great faith. He’s one of the better known saints, and he’s rumored to have died in the arms of Jesus and Mary. This is the same man who was charged with raising the son of God as the husband of Mary. Many lesser men would have left their virgin brides, but Joseph had unwavering faith. Since Joseph was so upstanding, Pope Leo XIII issued as series of letters in 1889, naming Jesus’s stepfather as a patron Saint of the church. However, the prayer dedicated to this devout man of god has been around for more than 1900 years. Earliest accounts suggest that this short prayer was actually written in the year 50 A.D. However, the first well known accounts of people actually using it date back about 500 years. There’s no scientific explanation for how the prayer works, but it seems to do with having friends in high places. Joseph raised Jesus, and it seems like praying to him is an express way of getting miracles through to those in charge.

How Does the Ritual Prayer Work

According to the Ballen Group of Las Vegas, the prayer of Saint Joseph can be used to ward off communism, find a job and of course, sell a house. However, there are different ways of performing the prayer in order to achieve the desired results. It’s not just enough to say the prayer when you’re looking to sell your house fast. You also need a statue of the patron saint. The statue isn’t deified or placed upon an altar. Instead, it’s buried, to mimic the success of the first real estate prayers dedicated to St. Joseph.

The Burying of the Statue

In the 1500’s, a group of nuns in Europe were seeking more land for their crops and livestock. They apparently said the prayer of Saint Joseph and buried their medals which were imprinted with his image. The prayers of the nuns were answered as they received ample land to sustain their cloister. This is the origin the ritual of burying something that represents the saint. It was more than 500 years ago when these nuns revealed the power of the prayer regarding real estate, and thousands of others have garnered similar success. It’s believed that the ancient religious ritual of sacrificing something is enough to appease higher powers. The web is bursting with stories of people who utilized the prayer after burying the statue, and they were nowhere near as devout as the nuns.

Where Can I Find a Statue of St. Joseph

The term ‘statue’ should be used loosely, because most of them are actually decorative figurines. The average statue is a mere 3.5″ tall, and they retail for less than $2 most of the time.

There are actually entire St. Joseph house selling kits and one seems to be as effective as the others. It’s important to note that this prayer and the statues have worked so well in the past that there are multiple companies dedicated to making these kits. A more expensive statue is viewed more favorably, because it requires a greater sacrifice.

The best place to begin looking for a statue of Saint Joseph is online; the Catholic Company sells a kit for $7.95 which includes detailed instructions as well as background information on the ritual. The Catholic Supply website has the largest selection of St Joe statues we could find. You should also be able to find the individual statue on Amazon or eBay. You should also be able to find the statue at a local Christian library or book store. The catholic friendly stores are more likely to carry the statues than are the protestant stores, so you may want to call around.

After Burying the Statue

The house selling kits may be better than the individually sold statues, because the kits include instructions. However, there isn’t really an exact protocol, so long as the prayer is said everyday. The words should be repeated exactly, and burying the statue lets St. Joseph know that someone needs assistance in the real estate market. It’s also important to have faith that the ritual is going to be successful.

There are also other prayers that are said to help sell a house, and they can be used to supplement the St Joseph’s prayer.

Psalms to Evoke the Higher Powers

The book of Psalms was written by King David, a man well known for his real estate prosperity. There are different prayers to be said on different days of the month, and the proper psalm for a day can be found online. Fortunately, there are also psalms specifically dedicated to becoming prosperous. Chapter 18 is the Psalm that results in miracles being worked on the reader’s behalf. The sixth verse mentions the lord hearing the prayers and moving heaven and earth to answer the prayers. Chapter 81 is also good for those needing help selling a house.

Have Faith

The AME church has a saying “If you’re going to pray don’t worry and if you’re going to worry don’t pray.” This means you need to have faith that the prayer is going to work before you bury the statue. In the book of Mark, Peter walked on the water with Jesus until he doubted, so have faith that your prayers will be answered and miracles can happen. Perhaps this is how the ritual aids people in selling their homes, because the additional faith provides a boost in confidence. It’s also important to remain proactive in your house selling efforts. Praying won’t do much without action and faith without work is dead. Saying the prayer and filling out the form below demonstrates both faith and the initiative, and we buy houses from people needing a miracle.

While success in real estate depends on many factors, including choosing the right real estate agent, the current market conditions and the condition and location of the property itself, there’s a few tricks that property owners can use to boost their luck!

People have been looking for divine intervention with their real estate transactions and properties for centuries, turning to everything from crystals to Catholic saints!

Some of these methods involve buying and selling a piece of real estate while other luck-enhancing techniques aim to improve the luck of the occupants of a home.

In the spirit of the lucky Irish four-leaf clover, here’s four ideas you can use to help create your own luck with your real estate investment!

Saint Joseph Statue

Saint Joseph is billed as “the Patron Saint of Real Estate”, leading many home sellers to turn to this former carpenter for divine intervention with their real estate woes!

The practice involves planting a small St. Joseph statue, upside down, in the lawn or garden of the home while simultaneously asking for some divine intervention – the only catch is, the statue must be dug up once the house sells, and taken with the owner to their new residence where it will be kept in a place of honor within the home.

Here’s a link to buy a St. Joseph Statue

Known for his work with wood, St. Joseph (also known by Spanish-speakers as San Jose, and as San Giuseppe by Italians) is rumored to bring good luck to anyone who wants to sell their home quickly (and for a good price, of course).

The connection between St. Joseph and real estate goes back to the Middle Ages, when an order of European nuns was said to have buried a medal of the carpenter-turned-saint on a piece of land they hoped to acquire as the site of their new convent.

These nuns asked the saint to intervene, and soon after, they were able to negotiate the purchase of their desired property.

Other stories claim that German carpenters would bury a statue of St. Joseph in the foundation of the buildings they constructed, praying that the saint would protect the structure.

It seems that the tradition of burying a plastic St. Joseph to speed up the sale of a property became popular in the United States during the mid-1980’s; at that time, many real estate agents were buying these little plastic statues by the case!

Since then, many homeowners have credited the success of their sale to the Saint, and this luck-attracting tradition remains popular among Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

St. Joseph home seller kits can be readily found at many religious supply outlets; Amazon even offers a number of different statues to choose from!

The exact location of where the St. Joseph statue should be buried is up for debate – some say that it’s important to place the statue upside-down, about 12″ below the earth between the real estate ‘for sale’ sign and the street, as this will encourage sellers to come onto the property.

Others claim that the statue should be buried in the garden close to the foundation of the building, as this will attract money and buyers to the site.

Condo-dwellers are advised to plant their St. Joseph statue in a flower pot on their balcony or inside their unit rather than burying the statue on the lawn of the building, as this might attract a buyer for a neighboring unit instead of their own!

The St Joseph Prayer

Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God. I place in you all my interests and desires. Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession, and obtain for me from your divine Son all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. So that, having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.

Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me and ask him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls – Pray for me.

This prayer was found in the fifteenth year of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In 1505 it was sent from the Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle. Whoever shall read this prayer or hear it or keep it about themselves, shall never die a sudden death, or be drowned, not shall poison take effect of them; neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy; or shall be burned in any fire, or shall be overpowered in battle.

Say for nine mornings for anything you may desire. It has never been known to fail, so be sure you really want what you ask.

Amish Barn Star

st joseph prayer to help sell a house

Five-point metal barn stars are a common site among Amish communities and German farming communities, where farmers would hang these large, eye-catching ornaments on the side of their barns as a way to attract good luck to their families.

Traditionally crafted from scraps of leftover roofing tile tin, barn stars

Also known as Pennsylvania stars or rustic tin stars, these symbols of good fortune have been adorning the sides of American farm buildings for more than 300 years.

Following the Civic War, stars were often placed on large industrial buildings in a quest to attract luck to the factory owner and protect the workers against injuries.

Growing numbers of non-Amish homeowners have also embraced the tradition of decorating their homes, garages and outbuildings with these rustic, simple metal stars, which can now be found across the country in both rural and urban settings.

Barn stars come in a wide variety of colors, with each color said to provide different types of protection and luck for the owners of the property where it is displayed. You can buy a simple one here.

While all Amish tin stars are said to attract prosperity and good fortune, copper is the color that is most often associated with abundance in investments, career and luck.

Green means growth, while black barn stars are the choice of homeowners and farmers who want protection from misfortune; often property owners will hang numerous different barn stars on their buildings as a way to attract different kinds of luck to themselves and their family members.

Citrine Stones

If you are looking to attract more wealth, prosperity and positivity into your home or business, consider placing a few citrine stones in the back corner of the building as a way to draw money in and improve your luck when it comes to finances.

st joseph prayer to help sell a house

Often referred to as “The Merchant’s Stone,” this small, golden-yellow colored semi-transparent crystal is renowned for being able to attract good fortune to people around it; historically, many shopkeepers have kept a small citrine stone inside their cash box or vault to improve the flow of money into their business, while others carry this stone in their wallet or purse.

Thanks to it’s golden yellow color, citrine, a form of quartz, is said to carry the power of the sun; it is purported to be protective against negative influences and energy as it works to diffuse negative thoughts, feelings and factors that could be working to block the attraction of luck, wealth and success.

Many entrepreneurs and people who work from home place a small bowl filled with citrine crystals near their computers or inside their office to attract money and success, while people who frequently drive for business have been known to keep a piece of citrine inside their vehicle as a way to carry their good luck with them on the road.

Here’s an article on how to buy a house in Las Vegas.

Designing and Decorating Your Home For Luck

For thousands of years people have been designing their homes to attract good fortune – this practice is commonly known as “Feng Shui”, the ancient Chinese art of arranging furnishings, doors, windows and decorative items in a particular way that’s meant to improve luck.

According to the rules of Feng Shui, placing fresh flowers in your home or office is an easy way to attract positive energy and good fortune – just be sure to avoid flowers with thorny stems (such as roses), since the stems can interfere with the flow of positive energy known as ‘chi’.

The color of your door can also influence your luck – Feng Shui dictates that south-facing outside doors should be painted bright red or orange and north-facing doors be black or blue to maximize the luck of the home’s occupants. If the exterior door faces west, it should be painted gray or white, while east-facing outside doors should be colored either green or brown.

Feng Shui principles also apply to both the placement of staircases and the number of steps those stairs should have – ideally, a staircase would have 1,2,5, 10, 13, 14, 17 or 22 steps. The staircase should never be placed opposite the front door of a home, as this provides positive energy and good luck with an easy escape.

Feng Shui followers also advise against placing a staircase across from bathroom or bedroom doorways, and spiral stairs are to be avoided on the basis that positive energy can become trapped within the spirals, blocking luck from reaching the occupants of the home.

Homeowners who have a front door opening onto a stairway can improve the luck in their home without going to the trouble and expense of relocating their stairs.

The cure for poor stairway placement is to simply hang a small crystal, wind chime or other energy-diffusing decoration between the bottom step of the staircase and the front door. This will spread out and disperse the good, ‘Chi’ energy as it travels down the stairs, preventing it from escaping out the front door!

Other simple Fung Shui luck-attracting home design ideas include hanging purple drapes or using a purple bedspread, since purple was the traditional color of royalty. Green is the color of money, so always include a live green plant in your home (since you want your money to grow), and to enhance the unobstructed flow of wealth into your life, keep your home as clean and clutter-free as possible, since obstacles like excess furniture can block lucky energy!
