About the Holy Spirit Novena

This particular novena was written specifically for PrayMoreNovenas.com and it is based on the Fruits of the Holy Spirit and a desire for sainthood.

It is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that someone can become a Saint. We can not save ourselves and it is only by the grace of God that we are saved. So, we must rely completely on the power of the Holy Spirit and the death of Our Lord Jesus. That is the essence of this novena.

The Pentecost novena is really THE original novena. The disciples waited in unity and prayer for the Holy Spirit for nine days after Jesus’ ascension to heaven. Jesus asked them to pray constantly in the upper room until the descent of the Holy Spirit.

“They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.” – Acts 1:14

  1. Thank you father son Holy Spirit for the faith ,love of my husband ,the financial blessings and also the healing blessings that me and my family have received

  2. Thank you so much for this Novena. I prayed it everyday so that God would give me a man He has chosen to love me and be loved by me, and on day 9 (May 18), that man created by God only for me started talking to me. I’ve never felt so much love in my life. Praise be to God!

  3. Thankyou Holy spirit for blessing me with everything and being with my family. You have blessed me with all that i desired for.

    I will always have trust and faith in you. Amen.

  4. Heavenly Father,

    Please continue to watch over all those in my family who are ill. Touch them with your healing hand and grant them the simple joys and comforts of this day. Give each the tranquility that they seek.
    I ask this in your name, Amen.

  5. Loving God,

    Thanks for hearing my prayers and for blessings all that I hold in my heart. Continue to be with me today and to be a sign of your love to others today. Amen.

  6. Thank you O Holy Spirit for your blessing in the form of a second interview for my husband. Thank you-I am praying that this will give him the job we have been waiting for. Thank you for my second job.

  7. Prayers were answered. I prayed that my documentss for chsnge of status be filed, and on the 8th day of the novena my lawyer filed them. I now continue to pray that the Holy Spirit be with the officers to sent me an approval fasts.May Gods will be done. Thank you father, thank you son, and thank you Holy Spirit. Amen.

  8. Prayers were answered! I prayed for a final investor for our family business venture, which we need to bring the project to fruition, or for God to firmly close the door to this idea and help my husband to find another employment opportunity. We’ve been working on the small business plan for almost two years as a way to support our family. On day 8 of the novena, my husband connected with a very interested party who is likely to invest. A day or two prior to that, we looked at our resources and realized that — although not ideal — we could cut certain costs and bridge the financial gap with our own resources. Thank you God for continuing to provide for us and for keeping this door open. Thank you for all of the ways — big and small — in which you answer our prayers.

  9. I prayed the novena on the same day and asked for graces to obtain our US visas Thanks,we were successful.

  10. I give thanx to the HOLY SPIRIT after a while of not working….soon after The HOLY SPIRIT NOVENA, l signed a contract for job!You are a Faithful God.l love you with all my heart.May you please guide and protect me and my family always.THANK YOU GOD!

  11. I had been praying for a 32 year old father of 2 who had a severe stroke, resulting in slurred speech and loss of mobility.

    Doctors discovered it was NOT a stroke, but an abscess on the brain stem which had mimicked the symptoms of a stroke: slurred speech, loss of mobility. He is on high-powered antibiotics and starting rehabilitation. A temporary shunt was inserted to drain off fluid and reduce swelling. He is improving; the abscess has reduced in size.

    I continue to pray for the abscess to dissolve completely and the infection to go away.” Plus, strength and courage for Michael as he goes through rehabilitation.

  12. I prayed throughout this novena for the general intentions and added my personal intention for healing. I want to thank The Holy Spirit for gradually healing me in the Name of Jesus.

    Thank you so much HOLY SPIRIT!

  13. I am applying for this job that i really want. This is the second time i am applying and am certain this time round God’s favour is upon me.

  14. Before the Novena, I had no peace, from yesterday I have had a lot of peace and calmness within me, even people around me have noticed. I indeed thank the Holy Spirit.

  15. I believe my son’s marriage is getting better. I’m still praying as they are not out ot danger yet. I know God will be with all of us through this time.

  16. The answer of my prayer is unfolding. Thank you all for the beautiful novena and support …
    Thank You Holy Spirit

  17. I thank you Lord for allowing me to graduate with high honors in the master program, with High Distinction!
    Now I pray to past my certification exam and to recieve a high paying job with great benefit, favor, peace.
    Thank you Jesus.

  18. I was late starting this novena and had three days to catch up on so I prayed them all at once. The next day I received consolation to one of the things I was praying for! I had a list of about six intentions and have received some sort of answer or consolation to ALL of them. Not everything has been completely resolved, but the lesson learned during this novena is that God IS listening and working in our lives. We just have to trust Him and seek Him out for help rather than trying to do everything on our own!
    Thanks be to God!

  19. My intention for this Novena was for a new job. Not only did I get hired for a new position on Pentecost Sunday, I was hired for a job I truly wanted and feel called by the Lord to do. Praise the Holy Spirit! The Lord is Faithful! God bless you all!

  20. As much as I have been praying for God’s blessing on my business, more important, I have seen more than one huge prayer answered regarding my husband’s spiritual growth. Thankfully, I have been blessed with a small amount of work to help us get by until I procure another project/contract with my business. Yes, I welcome another Novena. (“Lord please bless my business so that I may bless this and other ministries. As you have guided me to my Master’s degree, please use this as a means. Jesus, I trust in You”).

  21. I have asked for a few things.. one for my grandson’s mom, that she get independent and get a job,so I can stop paying her bills. well she did get a job, although part time, but its a step in the right direction. My mom had an Mri and thank God they don’t think it’s cancer…just fibroids, although she is 80, I want her around for a while longer..long enough to see the rest of her children..3 of my siblings, come back to their faith..she prays for that everyday. Also still praying for a friendship I lost, to be reunited..I know I need patience. Than you God for all the blessings.

  22. My wife and I had our 20 week ultrasound, and baby is healthy and happy. That prayer was answered. Still working on finding a postdoctoral position, but trust God will put me in a place he wants me to be.

  23. My friend was who is separated from a destructive marriage by the state (not the church), signed the divorce papers about a year ago, after he fully accepeted Jesus and the catholic church in his life. He had not recieved the confirmation paper that says he is officially divorced from the judge, which he has anxiously waited for, for many months. This was my main intention of the novena and the second day of the novena, I called him and he tells me that the paralegal called him to tell him that he is officially divorced and the confirmation paper will be in his hands before june 5th. THANK YOU and the holy spirit!

  24. My friend went back to Church!! On Pentecost as well!!!! (So cool!!!)

    THANKS John Paul and Annie for sending us these Novenas!!

  25. Pentecost Sunday,
    Am reminded of a remark my son made when he was a little boy about the
    Trinity
    I had been trying to explain to him about the intensity of the love of God, Jesus and
    the Holy Spirit.
    As I was hesitating for a good description and said to him,
    “There had to be three Persons in one God”. As I was thinking about a proper description, to complete the sentence, my little boy finished the sentence with,
    “He would have busted!”

  26. No changes in daughters unemployment…but I am less…way less anxious …waiting for the Lord to manifest his guiding hand on her life. She is more at peace…and patient…taking advantage of every possible opportunity…but trusting in the Lord’s love and actions…not herself and other peopke.
    Pax Christi

  27. Prayed for my mother’s recovery and she is slowly do much better after her gallbladder surgery. Pray for my mole and the doctor I was praying about helping me is going to help get it removed. he said it didn’t look too alarming, in so many words but I am still praying that it is not cancerous. Still praying for my brother to come back to receiving the sacraments. My friend, I have been praying for is getting strength for he and his special circumstances. And for our friendship growing in christ, to be pleasing to God and a future, it is unfolding slowing for us which is what God wants and it os growing in Christ. We are placing it in his hands for his will to be done and being very prayerful and both praying for purity of mind, heart, body and soul! This truly was a very powerful Novena and am very Blessed to be given signs from God and answers to prayers! Glory be to God! Blessing to All!

  28. When I getting ready to move I couldn’t find two very important items. Remembering the novena I said a prayer yo the Holy Spirit and within five minures I found both items.

  29. I have been praying for my husband’s and son’s conversion to Jesus, the Catholic Church and for their guidance for a successful career. We have been given some hope in a new direction for a career. Also, my husband prayed with me last night to Our Lady of Lourdes and allowed me to bless him with the Holy water from Lourdes. We will continue to pray for the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

    Come Holy Spirit!!

  30. This Novena and the Holy Spirit helped me in a most beautiful way this week. I faced a difficult choice this week on whether to take a job in San Francisco or Seattle; both were wonderful opportunities but very different. I felt I would have to rely on God to make the right choice – what BETTER timing than during Pentecost week, and what a PERFECT reminder from Pray More Novenas that the Holy Spirit can and wants to help!

    I had to make a decision by Saturday – the day before Pentecost – and asked God to share with me a sign: a red rose for Seattle, or a white rose for San Francisco. Throughout the week I talked with various mentors, etc., and continued praying…and though I hadn’t gotten a flower yet, I started to feel convicted that SF was the right choice – enough so that on Saturday afternoon, I called and accepted.

    Now, up to here I hadn’t gotten the flower, but I still trusted God to somehow use it to help guide me. Well, I went to a close friend’s wedding that afternoon, and when we lined up for the bouquet toss, guess what literally fell straight into my open hands: a bouquet of all white lillies and roses. What a generous affirmation to receive from the Holy Spirit on the eve of Pentecost.

    Thank you John Paul and Annie for running this site and being a beacon to us readers!

  31. No answer to my prayer yet. But I trust in God’s timing.
    And, I thank you for this novena ministry. And thank you for saying “Yes” to God.

  32. I prayed to the Holy Spirit for debt relief and it has been happening slowly, but happening. I have been praying for my husband to get the job he recently interviewed for but we are still waiting to hear, but I have faith and will continue to pray as this is all part of our debt relief and financially situation.
    Thank you O Holy Spirit for your blessings of faith and family.
