St Joseph 9 Day Prayer to Sell House

Joseph was a man who lived in the first century AD. According to the Bible, he was married to Mary, and was the legal father of Jesus.

Fast forward to today, and St Joseph is now known as the patron saint of carpenters, fathers, families, home sellers, home buyers, laborers, pregnant women, engineers, craftspeople, and the Universal Church.

How do you say the St Joseph prayer?

The St Joseph Prayer is meant to be recited before any undertaking of importance, including selling a house or starting a business, or even getting married.

When you recite this powerful prayer, you are asking St Joseph for his assistance.

The Saint Joseph Prayer can be performed by anyone, regardless of their religious affiliation

This prayer was originally written in Italian, but there are many translations from different languages available online for those who may not be able to read or speak Italian.

The English text of the prayer is below.

O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.

O Saint 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.

O Saint Joseph, I never weary 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.

Saint Joseph, Patron of departed souls – pray for me: [mention here what you are praying for].


Some versions replace “O Saint Joseph” with “Dear Saint Joseph,” but the message is essentially the same.

Why use the St Joseph Prayer to sell your house?

Prayer is a powerful tool that can be used to sell houses and other properties. Indeed, is not just a way of getting out of trouble or requesting for something.

As mentioned above, this particular prayer is often recited when someone is looking to sell their house.

It’s believed by many that St Joseph will help find a buyer for your house or apartment, and will bless it with good luck as well as protect it from any harm.

Extra tips on using this miracle prayer to sell a house

Some sources also suggest burying a small statute of St Joseph in the yard or garden of the home that you are trying to sell.

In fact, there are hundreds of “St Joseph house selling kits” available online (on Amazon and elsewhere).

These kits typically contain a small St Joseph statue, as well as a written copy of the prayer itself, and sometimes a picture of the Saint himself.

Come to my aid, O God. O Lord, make haste to help me Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of all good gifts, I come before you to honor you in your saints and ask their help in my many needs You promised those who ask, would receive, those who seek, would find, those who knock, would have doors opened to them. Hear the prayers of your church, grant my requests, and pardon my sins. Amen

St. Joseph, just and true, with a father’s care you raised the child Jesus, and with a husband’s love, you shared your life with Mary, his mother. I entrust myself to your care and place in your hands this request of mine. In quiet Nazareth, long ago, the Holy Spirit spoke to your heart and you followed God’s will with wonderful faith. In the quiet of my days, and in the hard choices I must make, help me follow the Spirit’s guidance and believe when I cannot see

Repeat one of these prayers along with the one above:

Day 1: Oh God, guide of those who listen and helper of those who hear your voice, speak to me, as you did to St. Joseph, and help me accomplish the things you give me to do.

Day 2: O God, you love your people and bless the ordinary lives we quietly live. As you blessed St. Joseph, bless what I do, however hidden and simple it may be, and let all I do be done with love.

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 5: O God, who loves children, be kind to our children today. Give them eyes of faith for seeing far, a loving heart for welcoming life, and a place always at your side.

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.

Day 9: Bless all families, O Lord especially those in need. Remembering the life of your Son, we pray for the poor, for those who lack a good home, for those in exile. Grant them a protector like Joseph, O God.
