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 Me

John-Paul and Annie Deddens

Hi there, my name is John-Paul Deddens. I’m just a regular Catholic guy.

I work full-time in the pro-life movement as the director of a non-profit that I started. So, by day I save lives, by night I remind you to pray!

I 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!

It has grown so much in just a few short years that now my wife Annie is 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!

  1. I met a wonderful guy from Nigeria by the name of Kenneth and we have a daughter together. He loves God and want to repent but he needs help. Please pray for him to stop selling drugs so that he can lead a normal life. I cant marry him because of that because I know God does not like that. Please pray for him to stop selling drugs. Also that God give him a good business idea.

  2. Could you please add a page to the site for answered novena prayers? I’ve never had any luck praying novenas in the past and a friend is really urging me to pray the Walk of the Incarnation. It worked a miracle for her, and her other intentions have come to fruition too, but I think hers is a one-off case and not the norm. It would help me to read about others who have had concrete, positive experiences from praying novenas as I make my decision about praying this novena.

    I’m sure I’m not the only person who’s had this question or could benefit from such a page.

    • Dear AMH:

      I do not know of any site either in the USA or Mexico that tells people their prayer on the novena has been answered. In Mexico, there is a tradition that when a novena helps our cause or needs, the post an add in the wanted adds in all the city’s newspaper, or even in huge billboards.

      I do want to remind you, that prayer is always answered. The answer might be a NO to what we wish for, but it is still an answer. Saint Thomas did not believe that the Lord had risen from the grave and says ” i will not believe until I put my finger in his holes and my hand in his wounded side.” Take or add a few words.

      Remember that when we pray, we need to have Faith, to abandon ourselves in His hands and endless mercy; he also has His own time to answer our prayers because He has a plan for us, He can see the big picture but we can only see our part of the picture.

      I am telling you this not because I do not have any problems in my life, each one of us has their own cross to bear. But I can say to you with no doubt what so ever, if one is willing to believe and just let Him take charge of our life, He WILL work wonders.

      May the Lord bless you and your family and provide what you need now and always.


      Your sister in Christ,
