My prayers were for myself and 2 other people and no advances were being seen with any of these matters. I had noted in an email from John-Paul & Annie that answered novena petitions were happening years into the continued prayers. I decided at that moment to persist with petitions to the Almighty via Novenas.

    About the 3rd day in the Divine Mercy Novena, a miracle occurred! My sister received a kidney donation – I had prayed for her return to full health! She is recovering well and adjusting to the new life given to her by our Lord. All praise to the Almighty for His Grace. Thank you Lord.

  17. Praise God for this miracle!!! Chad, a young father from Florida, collapsed and was in a coma right before Easter. His sister-in-law and I started the Divine Mercy Novena for him.

  20. I prayed that my husband would be offered a job close to home and with wood. He was offered a position this past Tuesday. Thank you!!!!!

  21. I asked our Divine Mercy to please help the doctors find the reason I was having such a difficult time breathing and they did!! I was increasing having more and more of a hard time breathing. Finally, they discovered a bacteria I had. The antibiotic they were giving me was the wrong one. The bacteria was feeding off of it and getting stronger. I feel like I have a chance now to have a more productive life. I still will have problems breathing because of my disease, I have COPD, but breathing is a lot easier. Thank you Lord God and Divine Mercy

  30. Through Jesus’s Divine Mercy, I was offered a job. I experienced His mercy as I went through interviews and reaching out for references. I prayed the novena more towards the end. The last day we attended a service for Divine Mercy and sang the novena. It was incredible! We have a merciful and loving Lord!

  31. Through this novena, I was praying to God to bless me with a new job and HE did. During the cause of my last interview as soon as the interview was over they offered me the job on the spot.

  32. Thanks be to God for His mercies. Amongst what I prayed for during the novena was finance to start up my business again. To the glory of God I just asked a friend whom is not among those I intend asking and he gave the amount I asked for the next day. God’s mercy never comes to an end, they are new every morning. The other intentions will come through as He wills.

  33. Eternal Father,
    I just got the news that the bank has accepted the loan for my daughter to buy the 44% share of the house, making her the sole owner; thus leading the road to the peaceful separation of my daughter from this man who has abused my daughter physically, mentally and financially.
    I pray for this man, that he will cooperate with us for the rest.

  35. My son, Luke, who has suffered from alcoholism for nearly four years, spoke to his wife and children for the first time in many months. He is in rehab right now and finally opened up to a trusted individual about his real problem. My long long prayer has been answered. Thank you, Jesus You are so Good!!!!!

  36. Yes, at least a part answer to my prayers from the Divine Mercy Novena. A better financial outlook and really needed funds came through for me last week. Praise Be to the Lord on HIGH !!

  37. I am retired and live on my monthly check which is not very much. On the last day of the novena my car broke down and was going to cost too much to repair I just started to pray and put my problem in my Lord’s hands.
    On Divine Mercy Sunday my daughter call to let me know she had a car for me. I thank my Lord everyday for so many blessings that I have received and my Blessed Mother.

God had completely changed his perspective and he now have a stronger faith. He had found new friends in the church and now, he is the one encouraging me to attend the retreat as well. Thanks be to God. I have been praying for this! God is now leading him to the good crowd.

    Thank you Jesus I love you.

  46. Thanks to the Divine Mercy. I have often committed sin with my cousin, and after that realize that if anything wrong outcome would come then I may be in trouble. And so, I felt in tense. But through Divine Mercy Novena nothing such anything happened. For which I am very grateful for Divine Mercy from Heavenly father. Lord take me to the right path always.

  47. My father had a stroke on 3/12, which left him unable to talk. I started the Divine Mercy novena on Sat a day late. A few hrs after I finished saying Day 9 prayer, my brother texted that dad was starting to talk, not clear, but talking… All glory and praise to you, Jesus…

  51. After praying this novena, the pain I’ve been enduring in my abdomen suddenly disappeared. I prayed for it for so long because I can’t afford to get sick specially I am working for my family. God is so good all the time.

  52. I have always been praying for my youngest son to find a stable and better paying job now that he has a family of his own. Through the novenas, he has found a well paid job but I am still praying that he becomes permanent.

  53. The Lord did not listen to my prayers during the Divine Mercy Novena.
    I asked God to heal me and help me with my insomnia and I still cannot sleep at night.
    I guess my problem is not important for God or he might not think that sleeping is important for me.
    Yesterday I slept one hour and then another hour.
    Today, after not sleeping, I felt depressed, anxious, moody.
    I guess God doesn’t want to heal me.
    I’ve taken magnesium that my doctor has prescribed and it doesn’t work. I’ve taken Melatonin and it doesn’t work.
    My last resource is to see a psychiatrist and see if sleeping pills work for me.
    I thought God could heal me.
    I feel sad, betrayed and unloved by God.
    I feel I asked him bread and fish and He gave me a stone instead.
    He doesn’t care about me.
    Please pray for me

  63. I’m praying the next novena that I might be able to retire earlier than anticipated from my current position – I need the money to be a certain amount to support me while I a) look for another position and b) move to be closer to my family and ailing mother in Florida. So, I’m praying for God to expedite things and help me financially so that I may make this move – sooner rather than later.

  64. My stepdaughter of twelve years told me she has finally come to realize how I have always been there for her, and how she truly loves me! She thanked me for being the good and loving wife to her father that he deserves. And she’s working her way back to the Catholic Chirch. More blessings than I prayed for!! God is so merciful and generous!

  65. Prayers for a teenager who had a baseball size cancerous growth on his left shoulder. The cancer spread to his 10th rib on the right and his left hip. He has been receiving cancer treatment for 12 weeks. I saw him two days ago-the shoulder has been reduced but the doctors are still speaking of amputating his whole arm, rib and replacing his hip. I am asking the Lord for a redirection miracle. Fr Don

  66. We prayed that our son would return to the Church and the process has begun!!! Our “prodigal” son came to talk to us last Tuesday admitting that he has struggled for the last 9 years since he left home, has made mistakes and asked us for forgiveness!!! PRAISE GOD!!! Also, he is much more open to acknowledging God and us talking about Him. (It was just a few months ago that he told us were were too religious!!) GOD IS SOOO GOOD!!! He is starting a new job today and says he has found the girl he wants to marry!!! AGAIN, PRAISE GOD, HE’S READY TO FULLY GROW UP!!!

  67. My daughter’s friend decided not to take a job out of town and told her it was because of her. He told her he really likes her a lot and would love to see where their friendship will take them.
    Of course, we are praying that he makes their friendship official now and that the two of them will fall in love and get married and live a long and happy marriage.

  68. I had a follow up CT scan for my colon cancer done during the Novena and I prayed my result would be good, that there will be no worrisome findings. I just got back my results and not only were there no new lesions, but the ones that were previously seen have improved. God is truly merciful!

  69. Yes Yes Divine Mercy Novena helped my daughter to ask me to pray for her through her difficult time in her child custody. This week is crucial and more prayers are required.
    Pl join me and continue praying for a favourable child custody, fair financial settlement and her superiors in the office give justice to the job my daughter is doing and she can retain her job or get a new job.
    Thank you all for praying

  71. A very dear teenager very close to me is having a very hard time with a condition that has transpired. She soon will be going to HS. She has developed an attitude she never had, very bratty and rebellious, although she is an honor student. I asked the Divine Mercy to calm her, and give her fortitude and patience with her condition , also asked for the complete remission of her malady.
    She looks happier and less rebellious. Will continue to pray to the Divine Mercy ! and you my brothers and sisters pray for her too , because NOTHING is more powerful than prayers , Divine Mercy, pray for us , Sacred Heart of Jesus, in you we trust .

  72. After praying the Devine Mercy Novena, our grandson, in much need of a car, was able to get a car that was affordable & in great condition.
