  6. Pray that I will be blessed with a full-time permanent secretarial job opportunity with a decent living wage, as I have been unemployed for many years, and I’m struggling. I am all alone by myself, very lonely, have been praying for peace and happiness – haven’t found it yet.

    Please pray that the water will stop gushing into my basement and that it will dry up completely and that the situation will rectify and clear itself up, as I don’t want to spending any money on this house, as it is a very old house; a house is a money pit.

    Please pray I will be protected from my abusive, controlling, violent-tempered brother, as he is such a bully; I am very fearful and terrified of him. All he does is cursing, screaming, yelling and has no respect for me, and tries to be the lawmaker for me. He will not bully his own size. He calls me a cunt, fucken bitch and a loose cannon and threw a watch at me. His wife is so 2-faced and is a violent tempered woman.

    Praying true friends will come into my life.

    Pray my life will change for the better. Praying for peace of mind and happiness and that I will overcome my fears, worries and nervousness.

  10. Yesterday being the last day of Novena and also the feast of Divine Mercy, I was called and told to find a another place or department to work. I was very sad and was walking to my desk and said let me meet my friend and hello her. Unfortunately she wasn’t at her desk and I asked her colleague about her. Just then she asked me why was I sad? and the words just spilled out from my mouth. she immediately told me we have a place for you. And within minutes her Boss told me he would speak and would be happy to have me.

    I immensely thank The Divine Mercy for the petition that I put was granted, my fears for my job was solved and I’m now waiting for confirmation to receive and a written memo with my transfer to the new department as soon as possible.

    I ask Divine Mercy to grant my friend there peace for mind and bless her, and not to be under the impression that I came to take her job, although she has retiring soon.

    I thank the Almighty for taking away the fear in me. Thanking for everything that went on smoothly.

I was desperate now as I needed this money to pay my Church Commitments in which I contribute to ensure our Church evangelism work to the neeedy, and to supporting our Priests & the Diocesan projects ,does not suffer.
    The office which owed me this money unexpectedly foned me on the 6th day of the Divine Mercy Novena, acknowledged the debt they owed me asking for forgiveness for the delayed. The office offered to pay soon . They have not paid the money yet but I’m greatful to God that by Grace I’m trusting that this amount will be paid through this week anytime from tomorrow.

  32. ….also, please pray for grandsons, Joseph & Ivar. Joseph was injured in a LaCross game when he was in grade 8. One kidney was “flattened” & his spleen damaged. He’s been hospitalized often through – now 18 – the years. After his accident, he returned to school. Always in pain, missing school, very sick to his stomach all the time. Lots of doctors, tests, scans, etc… Now refuses to see a doctor & will not have even blood tests.
    In grade 8 he was VERY active in sports. An “A” student in all subjects. Great group of friends, all sports minded!
    When he returned to school, he was offered drugs for his pain. A whole new group of “friends”. He got so hooked on smoking weed, then alcohol now cigarettes. He’s been home schooled unsuccessfully for grades 9 through 11. Gave up this past school year – grade 12. He is hooked, also on video games. Awake all night, sleeps all day. Smokes weed & cigarettes. Drinks. Never goes out anymore. All of his friends, even the drug friends are graduatuthis year. Please pray.

  33. I am a flight attendant and the past few sundays I haven’t been able to make it to Sunday masses due to my work schedule and flying times. I asked the Lord to hear my prayer and intention that I will be able to make it to Divine Mercy Sunday Mass and confession to receive not only the graces but HIM. I am currently on a 4 day reserve (meaning I can be called out any moment) and I haven’t been called out which is VERY unusual when you have 4 day reserve. The Lord has made sure that I make it to Mass and receive the special graces and His very own Body and Blood! I am beyond happy and overwhelmed with excitement that I can’t go to sleep and I’m up at midnight writing this to share! God bless everyone and I pray that all your prayers / intentions will be answered!

Since praying the novenas things have gotten better. Today I found out had a second ovulation!! Not sure if this is a double blessing but we received this as a message from God. I was a little confused and frustrated today but after going to church and speaking with my priest I felt this calming feeling everything will be ok. I this special day I am asking the Lord of Divine Mercy to please grant our prayer requests for restored fertility and pregnancy and that we ovulate and conceive our babies and have a healthy pregnancy. We will continue to rest on Gods promises to us that our babies will come for He who promised is faithful. We just have to believe and trust in God. Nothing is possible for God!! Praise the Lord. I am asking everyone on this novena to please pray with and for usthAt the Lord grant our miracle of life our babies. I will continue to pray for all of you. Amen

  62. Lord thank you for answering my prayer and keeping us safe on our road trip to Florida and also getting my son’s family here safely.

    Lord thank you for answering my prayers and helping my sister-in-law Maureen start to have some success solving some of problems and issues she has experienced with trying to resolve business and personal issues with her husband who has not been willing up to now to accept and recognize he has Dementia and had been unwilling to work with her to prepare for his future needs.

  63. I didn’t know that we could offer the novena for a petition of our own. I mean, I know that that’s the entire purpose of a novena, usually – to ask for a specific petition – but since the text of the prayer already assigned us a specific group of people for whom to offer each day’s prayers, I thought that meant that that day’s novena was offered for those people and thus I should be praying for Jesus’ intentions, not my own. So on the day when we prayed for people who had fallen away from the Church, I kept in mind all the people I know who are like that and prayed really hard for them, and likewise on other days, but always in keeping with the day’s… ‘theme,’ for lack of a better word.

    Can I also offer it for another petition that has nothing to do with the intentions given by Jesus? And if so, can I offer it for that petition now, when I’ve already finished the last day’s prayers, even though I didn’t in the beginning?
    Thanks for doing this website; it does make it easier than having to Google the prayers every day!

  64. Glory be to God. I prayed that my daughter will excel in her academic endeavour and also heal me totally. She called from school today and informed me that her score in the physics quiz was excellent. I’m also feeling far more better and I believe I’m really totally healed.

  65. Praise God! I prayed for my boyfriend to be reconciled with his father. On day 6 of the Novena, he informed me that he was going to speak with his father which he did on day 7 of the Novena. I thank God because his anger towards his father has been a major block in his life. All glory to God.

  66. i know this is not the right place 4 a question, but i am new & didn’t know where 2 go….it would be great if there was a chat room so,not only could we talk 2 each other, but ask questions from longtime “novena dudes” (a real name of a group)……..ANYWAY, i was looking 4 a place where the novenas r listed by the category……like all illness Sts., job Sts, etc.
    thank u 4 ur patience………….
    Annie & John Paul, saw u on women of grace………..u r “ROCK STARS 4 THE LORD”……maybe i will, with ur permission, write a novena 4 u…………
    may the Love, Peace, & Joy of Jesus go with everyone

  67. After much praying for a miracle, My tumor makers in my liver showed a 50% shrinkage from my new treatment plan. God is good and merciful.
