  3. After 9 months of not hearing or seeing my son’s father, he called me so he could spend some time with our son. My son was so happy after spending time with his dad. Although I never actually prayed for this I strongly believe that this was an answered prayer and I thank God for this blessing during this Christmas season. I pray that he continues to be a part of our son’s life and have a relationship with him.

    Thank you John and Annie; your emails and novenas have truly brought me closer to God. I pray that God continues to bless you and this year may draw more people to join us in prayer.

    Thank you so much Father God for ALL YOUR BLESSINGS.

  4. I was cured of cancer this year and also survived a stroke. My greatest answered prayer is that I was healed spiritually and now have a closer relationship and appreciation for my savior and closest friend Jesus through His divine mercy and sacred Heart. I have gone through much suffering and heartache this year but I am ever so grateful that it has led me to find the treasure of Christ’s love and friendship.. the greatest gift ever. Thank you dear God for always hearing and answering the prayers of an unworthy sinner.

  5. I prayed to have deeper faith in God and a closer relationship with him. I was feeling so lost and making foolish decisions in my life. I now have a better relationship with God and following His word. My life is coming together perfectly with success, happiness, faith and good health. My family members are also doing great. I continue to pray to be out of my financial situation for the upcoming new year. Thanking God for his mercy, grace and favour our my life and my family’s.
    Amen

  6. I prayed in desperation for our Lord to help me with some financial difficulties, our Lord didn’t give me exactly what I have prayed for but he eased my burden a bit by giving me an alternative which solved a bit of my problem.

    I believe in our Lord’s timing, and I will continue to pray for him to help me, but I am very grateful for assistance he gave me and for hearing my prayers.

    Thank you to John-Paul and Annie for offering all the Novena Prayers which I always pray, it helped me a lot spiritually and being closer to God. May God bless you and wishing you a Happy New Year, all the best for 2018!

    Lastly I wish you both and everyone a Happy and peaceful New Year X

  19. Our daughter had one of the most rigorous semesters of college yet and we were distraught to see one of her professors had entered a grade incorrectly and was not yielding on being wrong. This grade would have made her retake the class. With the power of prayer and 4 or 5 sleepless nights the professor who was on Christmas vacation already checked his calculations and admitted the mistake. I know this is superficial compared to other prayers but it just shows that HE is always there in the large and small things.

  20. Praise you My Lord Jesus I praise your holy name . Thank you I am so grateful for answering my prayer for my husband that he would find a reliable person he could trust in his business. I prayed for a relief for him so he could have a day off. We found a nice man that has all the same qualities and work ethics that my husband has. He just started been a week seems to be working well. I thank you for my patience and not giving up. I started the request during Christ the king novena and got answered during this novena. God showed me patience and persistence for prayer. . Praise be God. Thank you my novena family for your prayers. Blessed is his holy name . Thank you thank you 🙏

  21. I would like to thank Jesus & give glory to God as well as thank our blessed mother. I have been praying for my daughter to meet a good Christian man, I am happy to give glory to God. During the immaculate conception novena she did meet someone and told me yesterday. So grateful for this answered prayer. Also the wonderful Christmas with the entire family, peace, love and harmony among all. Thank you Jesus

  22. Today Christmas day I received a message that my sister who has not spoken to me in 5 years had purchased a gift for me. The message came to me from my sister who is ill and at end stage COPD. She called me to tell my that Flo had left a gift for me at her house and the gift was a scapula she had gotten for me, herself & my ill sister. God is good and I am so thankful that this prayer is the closest to bringing Flo and I back together as sisters and friends.

    Have faith in the Lord He knows what you need.

  25. I prayed that my daughter would come closer to Christ. She stopped attending mass the last 4 years while at college except for Christmas and
    Easter. So at Christmas eve mass, I prayed that the during mass her seed of faith would be renewed in the smallest way. She stood up for communion and received a blessing. What a wonderful Christmas gift!

  28. Dearest Jesus and Mary, thank you for your Blessing of bringing our son home safe and healthy from his Fall semester in China.

    God bless all and a very Merry Christmas.

  29. My son and his family arrived safe for Christmas. They drove from Boulder , Colorado. I now ask that everyone pray for their safe return in the new year.

  30. I’ve been called to work a job that pays well, although it’s only for about 3 weeks. That’s enough to get me through a few months. This is an answer to prayer.

    I really want to pay off debt that accumulated while I tried to make myself employable through training and education. It doesn’t look like that will be possible, although with God all things are possible. I pray only for His will to be done, and the grace to act only in accordance with His will. If it be His will that I obtain permanent work that pays sufficiently to pay for itself as well as my regular bills and debt, I ask for this. If it is not His will, then I ask for the grace to hope in His mercy, to have faith in His promise of my redemption, to give love to my neighbor in all circumstances, and to be joyful in His plan for me.

  31. Praise God! My husband got the money he needed to pay the bills and have a Merry Christmas! Love you Lord. Thank you. You do great things for us. Happy Birthday!

  32. We prayed for our family and friends who wished to have children, but could not and we found out on Christmas Eve that one of them are pregnant! Continued prayers that baby is healthy :)

  33. Thank you for the Christmas miracle for my sister. She was badly in need of financial help and it came to her in a long awaited way.
    So thankful to the Lord and for Our Lady’s intercession.
    Merry Christmas.

  36. Thank you for praying and my prayers were answered. There was no evidence of disease in my husband’s lymph nodes following surgery. I will continue to pray the novenas as they teach me to accept God’s will and recognize his awe and wonder in sadness and joy.

  37. Merry Christmas to all.
    Thanking God for my family, my mother, father, sister, brother, neices and nephews. Asking God to continue to guide us and bless us.

  38. Many answered prayers and blessings during this Novena and yet I’ll focus on one- FORGIVENESS: I didn’t enter this Novena praying for this and yet I received a huge dose of it! It started out being for others and then ended on Christmas Eve with forgiving myself. Only God and the Holy Spirit could deliver such a gift!!! For this I am glad. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!

  40. God answered my prayers for a safe and seemless delivery. He blessed my family with a bouncing baby boy on 19th Dec and the labour lasted only for 2 hrs, 46mins. I prayed for a very short labour and it was granted. I return all the glory to Him alone and I also thank Mother Mary for her intercession.

  45. One of my prayers is for a daughter who has a difficult time working due to depression and ADHD. I prayed that she will find a good job, suited to her. She has been working a temporary December job, and her employer has asked her to stay on for two more months. I am grateful because this will help her build a good work record; I continue to pray that this is a steppingstone and she’ll eventually be able to support herself.

  46. I had not had any communication with my in-laws for a couple of years due to a misunderstanding and harsh words spoken. After listening to the talk about forgiveness I began praying for my in-laws. Much to my surprise I received a beautiful Christmas card from them earlier this week. It is a step in the right direction. Thank you Lord for prayers answered. Christmas miracles happen,

  47. I cured from my sickness and also very grateful to Infant Jesus and Mother Mary. I went to the church with my family and celebrated the Christmas together. I hope The Lord of Jesus help me to get good answer other intentions too. Thank so much.

  53. Christmas time when others are with their family and loved ones..I feel sad because I miss my baby. I often battle with guilt from an abortion. I walked into the bookshop at the church in another district and found a book I never saw before there…of a mother who had abortions and how she found forgiveness and how it helps mothers increase their faith.I think this book will be helpful especially in times when I feel overtaken with anger and guilt at what I have done. Thankful.

  56. I prayed for my little girl cat Snowball. She was dying of renal failure. I couldn’t stand to lose her right on the heels of my Mom’s death. My grief was heavy. The veterinarian told us to just go home and love Snowball. She was day to day. On the 8th day of this Novena, I received a call from the veterinarian saying that Snowball’s kidney values were back to normal. It is truly a miracle! Snowball is my comfort for the recent loss of my Mom. Praise God.
