Happy Easter everyone.
Here is one prayer Im sure most of us have heard from being in this business.
Prayer To Help Sell Your House Faster
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.
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 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:
- 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
- Did a hole within 3 feet of your For-Sale sign in front of your house large enough for the Statue.
- Place the statue upside down facing toward the direction of the front of your home. Then…
- Those who believe in this practice would repeat the following prayer….
The St. Joseph 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/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.
