The Next Novena – The St. Philomena Novena, 2015

 

St Philomena NovenaWe’re excited to announce that the next novena is the St. Philomena Novena! 

This will be a first for us as we’ve never prayed this novena before, but we have received so many requests for it over the years that we just knew we had to pray it!

We will start the St. Philomena Novena on August 2nd — just one week after the St. Anne Novena ends.

Many Popes over the years have had special devotions to her, and Pope Gregory XVI said, “Whatever you ask from her, she will obtain for you.”

St. Philomena is credited with countless miracles and intercessions, and she has become known as the “wonder worker,” so we are hopeful and anticipating great things from God during this next novena.

We hope you will join us in praying this novena for your prayer intentions – may St. Philomena intercede for us all!

We’re looking forward to praying with you and for you!

Answered Prayers from the St. Anne Novena – 2015

St. Anne ChurchThank you for joining us in the St. Anne Novena, one of our very favorite novenas!

We hope that St. Anne’s intercession has brought you peace and comfort.

If you experienced an answered prayer during or after this novena, please share it with us all below! We must praise God, and give Him all the glory, for all the good things He is doing in our lives.

We know that for every answered prayer we share, there are many other unanswered prayers too; and we know how discouraging that can be. We don’t want you to lose hope or to stop praying.

In fact, nearly all of the Saints that we ask for intercession are incredible examples of how we should persist in our prayers and keep our faith strong. St. Anne, for example, prayed for decades to conceive before God granted this desire of hers (which would become the Blessed Virgin Mary!).

Now, if you have had some prayers go seemingly unanswered (you’re not alone), and you’ve been asking yourself, “Should I just stop praying?” — here’s a post I wrote that may be able to help:

The Next Novena – the St. Anne Novena, 2015

A little more than five years ago, John-Paul and I were both single, and I was praying a novena, asking God to help me meet my future husband (John-Paul).

Now, five years later, we are married and coming up on our third wedding anniversary!2ndanniversary

I would like to ask you to join me in the very same novena that I prayed more than five years ago. We will start praying on July 17th!

This novena is to a Saint who is known for truly great things.

So, which novena is it?

It’s the St. Anne Novena! This is one of our favorites.

And we start praying it very soon, so be sure to share it with your family & friends!

St. Anne is the mother of Our Lady and grandmother of Jesus. She is a very powerful intercessor!

You may have heard that unmarried women often pray to St. Anne for help in finding a spouse. But, St. Anne is also known to intercede for people for almost any request, and especially for healing.

So, I hope you will join me in praying this novena for your prayer intentions!

Your friends & family can sign up here:

We look forward to praying with you and for you!

Answered Prayers from the Sacred Heart of Jesus Novena – 2015

Sacred Heart Novena PrayersThank you for joining us in praying the Sacred Heart of Jesus Novena!

We hope it was fruitful for you!

If any of your prayers were answered while praying this novena with us, please share that below — all for the glory of God!

It is always inspiring to hear bout answered prayers & how God is working through these novenas.

It is such an incredible reminder of the power of prayer — that God is listening and He is working in our lives!

You can read through hundreds of answered prayers from past novenas here:

 

Answered Prayers from the Pentecost Novena – 2015

Answered Prayers from the Mary, Undoer of Knots Novena – 2015

Answered Prayers from the Divine Mercy Novena – 2015

However, for every answered prayer we share, we know there are at least as many unanswered prayers — if not more; and we know that unanswered prayers can be discouraging.

But we don’t want you to lose hope, or to stop praying.

In fact, many of the Saints that we ask for intercession are great examples that we should persist in our prayers, and keep our faith strong. St. Monica, for example, prayed for nearly two decades before her prayers were completely answered.

Now, if you have had some prayers go seemingly unanswered (you’re not alone), and you’ve been asking yourself, “Should I just stop praying?” — here’s a post I wrote that may be able to help:
