Immaculate Conception Novena

The Novena That Inspired This Website!

Immaculate Conception NovenaFour years ago, I asked John-Paul to pray the Immaculate Conception Novena with me.

He actually turned me down! He always had trouble finishing a novena, and would usually forget.

After thinking a little bit more about that, he knew it wasn’t a good enough reason not to pray with me (thank God for that revelation!).

Shortly after that, John-Paul was inspired to create PrayMoreNovenas.com to help people remember to…

… well…

Pray More Novenas!

Since then more than 146,000 people have joined in praying together!

So, to commemorate how Pray More Novenas came to be, we are praying the Immaculate Conception Novena starting this Saturday, November 29th!

Your friends & family can sign up to pray with us here:

Christ the King Novena – 2014

Christ the King NovenaWe are very excited to announce the next novena!

It is the perfect novena to pray as we end this liturgical year and begin the next one.

This novena will give us an opportunity to re-order our lives, our hearts and our minds to our Lord.

It’s kind of like a novena for new (Liturgical) year’s resolutions!

It’s the Christ the King Novena!

Pope Piux XI created this feast day in 1925 in response to the fact that the world was becoming increasingly nationalistic and secular.

The Christ the King feast day is to help us remember that our allegiance to Christ is above any allegiance to government.

We will pray that we will be able to place God above all things in all aspects of our lives, and that He will reign supreme in our minds, hearts, and bodies.

We all want to be saints, and the first step is putting Him first!

We will start praying this Friday, November 14th!

Answered Prayers from the St. Jude Novena – 2014

We loved praying the St. Jude Novena! Thank you for joining us in prayer!

St Jude Novena

Unanswered Prayers

unansweredprayersAt the end of each novena, we share some of the answered prayers that happened during the novena.

It has been really inspiring to hear about these 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 St. Therese of Lisieux Novena – 2014

Answered Prayers from the Novena for Marriage & Families – 2014

Answered Prayers from the St. Anne Novena – 2014

Answered Prayers from the Sacred Heart of Jesus Novena – 2014

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:
