Does the Novena prayer to St. Joseph work?
According to believers, the Novena prayer to St. Joseph works. Many people who’ve recited the prayer after feeling dejected and desperate, especially when they felt as if God had abandoned them, suggest that this prayer saved them.
For most believers, the Novena Prayer to St. Joseph was their only option, and they started by praying about smaller things like getting into their college program of choice. After some time, they started reciting this prayer when asking God for bigger things, and they were surprised by how effective the prayer was.
It’s worth noting that in addition to the St. Joseph Novena for selling a house, there are several other Novenas to Saint Joseph, all with different intentions and purposes. The 9-day prayer recitation is said to be used to communicate a specific request or intention, but the underlying goal is asking God to instill in you the diligence and patience associated with Saint Joseph, Patron of the Departed Souls.
That said, novenas could be the most powerful prayer tools, but they are not magic spells, so they do not come with guarantees of specific outcomes. And so, how effective a Novena prayer is will depend on your willingness to put your complete trust and Faith in God’s plan for your life.
Why do people pray to St. Joseph?
People pray to St. Joseph because he is the Patron Saint of the dead, and as Jesus’ step father, St. Joseph can intercede on behalf of anyone who prays to God through Him. St. Joseph is also the patron saint of families, the Universal Church, immigrants, pregnant mothers, house sellers/ buyers, travelers, engineers, craftsmen, and all workers.
According to Christian believers, specifically the believers of the Catholic Faith, St. Joseph, the foster father of Jesus Christ, was a devout and obedient man of Faith who followed God’s wishes, even without knowing what the outcome would be. And when God sent the angel Gabriel to Galilee in a dream, the angel also told him the whole truth regarding the child Mary was carrying – Luke 1:26-35. Without any concerns for gossip, concern, or doubt, Joseph took Mary as his wife full-heartedly. Later, when the angel appeared to him again, warning him about the danger the family faced, he immediately fled to a strange country alongside his young wife, leaving behind all that he owned and his friends and family without question. Matthew 2:13.
As Jesus’ earthly father, the Roman Catholic Church regards Saint Joseph as the most efficacious saint up in heaven and also the protector and guardian of the Church of Christ.
Through his Faith and devotion to God, the Pope, Saint John Paul II, named St. Joseph the Guardian of the Redeemer, the Terror of the Demons, Protector of the Church, and the Comfort of the grieving and Hope for the Sick. Although Joseph isn’t mentioned much in the Bible, he’s also revered as the Patron of the Universal Church.
Additionally, as the church remembers the mysterious beginnings of human salvation in Jesus Christ, they observe the solemnity of the prayer for Saint Joseph’s Solemnity on March 19. This opening prayer, or the Collect for Solemnity for Saint Joseph, also commemorates the salvation of humankind in Jesus Christ. Saint Joseph is considered an important part of the mysterious beginnings, and the mysteries are believed to be perpetuated in homes, hearts, and communities. With this in mind, the Catholic Church composed the 9-day prayer recitation that’s prayed annually from March 10th to 18th to precede the Saint Joseph’s Solemnity on the 19th day of March.
Given the power and protection of Saint Joseph, which is deemed so strong and prompt before God’s throne, the Novena to Saint Joseph makes it possible for all believers to pray for and attain whatever they desire.
It’s also important to remember that St. Joseph is regarded as the patron saint for all fathers – he was a hardworking carpenter – which is why he’s also believed to be the patron saint of the workers. Matthew 13:55, Mark 6:3.

Can you pray to St. Joseph to find the right buyer for your house?
Yes, you could pray to St. Joseph to find the right prayer for the home you’re selling. As a patron saint for workers, families, and business persons, St. Joseph can intercede on our behalf to God for our prayers to be answers. Reciting Novenas is also believed to be the most effective form of prayer made by believers, and many continue to acclaim that the prayer is effective.
According to believers of the Catholic faith and even the Non-Catholics, Saint Joseph, now in heaven and the foster Father to Jesus Christ, is not only empowered with forgiveness, holiness, and reverence, but also that Patron saint of all fathers, expectant mothers, and families. He always found a home for Jesus and Mary, which is why he’s deemed the Patron Saint for finding safe homes.
You could also pray to St. Joseph to find the right buyer for your home. The reason for this is that St. Joseph is also considered the patron saint for all who wish to sell their homes, as well as house hunters. In some cultures, it is tradition to bury the Statute of St. Joseph on the property on sale because the saint’s statue would protect the house from new buyers/ occupants.
It is believed that it is essential to recite this novena because of how difficult it can be to find the right buyer for a home – it can take months or even years to get a house off the market, and it’s easy to get desperate when this happens – it’s one of the hazards of the job. In such cases, even when the market remains unpredictable, saying a short prayer to the Patron, St. Joseph, who God put in charge of keeping Mary and Jesus safe and finding them a safe place to live on earth, would mean access to heavenly assistance to help you secure a home for others.
Praying to the Holy St. Joseph, the patron Saint for guidance and protection, especially when it feels like all hope is lost, will spiritually help you as long as you have faith and trust God to fulfill your prayers or wishes.
It’s also important to note that praying to St. Joseph is the month of March because it’s the month that the Catholic Church has set aside for commemorating and praying o St. Joseph for 9 days, during which the novenas are recited.
