  38. I hope your Christmas was a joyful one. May you all have a Blessed
    New Year. As for me, we got the tax ratification passed, so I got the
    $750 bonus, which helped to pay in full a bill. Now, I appreciate you
    still praying for me. I need a vehicle because my ’99 ranger truck
    has been turning off and repair man told me that it’s not worth fixing
    anymore. I will be getting lump sum check for $3500, and want to
    buy a used vehicle with that money. I ask the Lord to direct me to a
    vehicle that is good and reasonable in price. Please pray for me in
    finding a vehicle. God be with you all. Thank you.

  39. Happy New Year,

    Dear fellow prayer and peace makers.
    I #me too
    I need support for I am against a corporation with fellow #me too women who are choosing to be silent. It is with great sadness and depression.
    Please pray very hard that my fellow women and a few good men stop being selfish. Please help pray that I am victorious and that I can move on with my life. I lost my job for standing up for human rights. I have suffered and so has my family suffered through much trama. I pray that I can find work. I deserve to be working.
    I do not deserve the heartache.

    • You will succeed, just stay strong, god will prevail, and you will have another job soon, we are all praying for you in Jesus name Amen.

  40. Merry Christmas and a Healthy Blessed New Year. Thank you for the hope and love you give all. You certainly are a comfort in some of the darkest hours and a reaffirmation in blessings. There is a lot of negativity out there. Lets keep these positive thoughts flowing.

  60. Dear Annie and JohnPaul, I have made several novenas with you and I always pray for my son to make progress in his life. Lately, he has decided he wants to buy a sports car or buy property in one of the burned areas of California and take up hand gliding, even though finishing college and getting a job would be better to do first, in my opinion. Well, it is progress over just being sick at home all the time. Anyway, for this progress I give thanks and ask that the Lord help me know how to respond to my son with love. Blessings to you and your family this next year. Aneliza

  61. Thank you for your Christmas card and for leading us in prayers may God continue to bless you. God has been answering all my prayers i’m so happy thank you for that.

    We hope ur ministry keeps growing.
    Its helped me try to keep my priorities in order.
    I ask for ur prayers for my family & me.
    I used to he able to help not only my family but others as well.
    But lately, the past few months , I’ve not been feeling well. I dont know exactly what’s wrong other than my MS & Pulmonary Sarcoidosis acting up. I’ve had no energy & can’t seem to get anything done. I get extremely tired very easily & it’s depressing to me to not be able to do for others since i barely even do for myself any more.
    I ask for ur prayers to help me to not only feel better & have more energy but be able to help others too!
    Thank u so much! It means more than u can know!

  65. Hi Annie and John Paul,

    Wishing you a very blessed and happy 2018.
    Your Novena’s have brought so much healing and blessings into our lives.
    Never have I said one that has not been answered in some way.

    I am still waiting on one request from Our Lord…that is for my son to find his path,career wise, but mostly for him to find a partner to share his life with. Hopefully one who will turn him back toward our Lord. In this I feel urgency (I know I shouldn’t) and am having a difficult time being patient.

    Health and happiness to you,


  66. Merry Christmas and Happy 2018 John-Paul and Annie. Thank you so much for all the Novenas throughout 2017.
    Hope that God and the Virgin Mary bless you for a child this year. I will be praying for all unborn children. I have never had a child, but my nieces and nephews filled my life and still do.
    Please pray for me for financial prosperity and good health for my husband and I.
    Thank you for the Novenas, keep them coming.

  67. John-Paul and Annie:

    I hope your Christmas was truly blessed and that the coming year is full of wonder and beauty.

    Although I cannot say that my intentions have reached fruition, yet, I feel so overjoyed with the Novenas that I have been privileged to be a part.

    My Christmas was wonderful and my hope, also, is that this world, at some point, will treat each day as if it were Christmas and then peace will reign.

    God Bless both of you today and always.

  68. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year John-Paul and Annie. Thank you so much for all the Novenas throughout 2017. I have been sharing the Novenas with my community. We look forward to the Novenas this year. May God bless both of you and your mission.

  69. Thank you for all you do. It is a blessing. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year.. God has blessed us with a home this new year.. We have been waiting for Three years, but all things in his time and I am so grateful to get this..we will be moving soon so may not be on here till we get everything hooked up for wifi..

    Love and Prayers for all,
