Sometimes We Need a Reminder!

Have you ever started praying a novena only to forget to pray it after a few days?

This used to happen to me all the time!

I started this website to help me and you to remember to pray all 9 days of the novena prayers. I do this by sending you email reminders with the novena prayers right in the body of the email.

Now, if you’re like me, you check your email every day. So, when you’re checking your email, you will be reminded to get praying!

It turns out that I’m not the only one who needs reminding… So far, several thousand people have joined in praying novenas with the help of these little reminders!

You can get your own reminder and pray together with thousands of others by signing up here:

About Us

John-Paul and Annie Deddens

Hi there, our names are John-Paul and Annie Deddens. We’re just a regular Catholic couple.

I (John-Paul) started this site because I wanted to pray more novenas, but I would constantly forget to do it on the right days.

It got to the point where I would not pray novenas because I didn’t think it was worth starting and not finishing. I realized that this was a problem when…

A while back, my girlfriend (now she’s my wife!) asked me to pray the Immaculate Conception Novena with her. I declined because I knew I would forget to pray everyday.

As I thought about my response, I realized that it really wasn’t good enough and I set out to create something to help me to remember to pray.

And PrayMoreNovenas.com was born!

At the time, I worked full-time in the pro-life movement as the director of a non-profit I started, Students for Life. So, by day I would save lives, by night I would remind you to pray! Annie was a local news producer.

It has grown so much in just a few short years that now my wife Annie and I are now working full-time on this ministry!

A lot of prayers have been answered and God has blessed this community. I hope you will join us!

  2. Thank you very much for these Novenas. I would like to suggest to add a novena to St Cajetan, patron Saint for the unemployed. With so many people looking for work this would bring blessings for many. God bless you!

  3. I have not been receiving all emails for the last several novenas. one or two have not been arriving. I checked my spam box and they are not there. I do go to your facebook page to get them but I wanted to let you know about the issue.


  4. Will you be giving us a Novena to pray in anticipation of the new publicly acknowledged SAINT Teresa of Calcutta, Sept. 4? If not, I will attempt to find my own novena to start on Aug. 26 . . . but I am so grateful for all that you do at Pray More Novenas that I was hoping to pray WITH you (et al)!!!
