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

  5. I’ve been reading the Penacostal Novenas what wisdom and confirmation of Gods love. I prayed to the blessed mother for reconciliation at the age of six. It was not for me but my family my mother took down the my shrine. I told her something so simple that I was praying for,that are family could be happy. She protected the secrets that were hidden behind closed doors sexual , physical,and emotional abuse. I went to Catholic school from third to twelfth grade with no teachings of scripture only fear based ideology. I was sexually abused by a nun at sixteen. I closed the door on God for a very long time and only with Bible study and a great church I’ve come to believe in Gods grace and mercy. Thank you for these Novenas in my recommitment to the God I knew as a child.

  6. This novena worked for me! I was desperately trying to figure out how we would pay our April and May house payments. We got behind because my wages are being garnished for an old credit card. I did the novena. Two days after the novena was finished, a random friend of my husband’s gave us money, which was more than enough for the house payments! The thing is, we never told ANYONE we were struggling! Praise God! He always finds a way!!

  10. I pray for healing and restoration of my marriage. For God to restore all that is broken and for healing of my family members. For my husband that he will come to know Christ and and that forgiveness will flood through his soul. For the healing of the inner being of my son and step daughter ‘s soul. Anger and bitterness have caused a great separation, but I know God can heal and restore.

    • Victoria, the same has happened to my family. I divorced, civilly, my husband of 35 years because of abuse and his refusal to commit to the marriage. I have not gotten an annulment/completed the process. In the eyes of God he is still my husband. He had his girlfriend move in with him. He and my three children have left the church for a “Christian” church and my children have accepted their sinful lifestyle. I’ve been alienated because I speak out against it. My grandchildren should not be exposed to their sin. Please pray that they all turn away from sin and return to the Father. Pray for me that I have the strength to endure this ordeal. I loved my husband, he just didn’t love me.

  11. I pray for my sister in law who went thru a pregnancy but lost it, let the Holy Spirit come into her heart and help her heal….also I would like to pray for my daughter to be the good girl I am always wanting her to be and for my husband to see the real meaning of a marriage and that he realizes that marriage is working together and sometimes going thru sacrifices is necessary!

  12. Lord, you know i want to help.
    I cannot help people who simply feel they have everything, are above everything and feel they dont need help. They may even be happy the way it is, somedays it seems that way and so be it if thats the case…but i dont have to agree.
    All i can do is leave it be now, allow people to do their own thing and hope they reciprocate and do the same for me.
    Maybe one day ( or maybe not) a realization will come over them, they will re adjust their life and they will want to meet under God…everyone will know if that truly happens and it will always be welcomed but it hasnt happened yet nor is anywhere close to happening…so all that can happen is leave it be and pray.
    Lord, please guide people to do right where there has been wrong. Healing and peace.
    Amen

  19. Some people have no idea what goodness means anymore. They are so driven by the devil, it is so sad to see.
    I pray for those people and this world we live in.
    Amen

  20. Please Holy Spriit, the Trinity, come into my Heart and Soul to set a blaze the fire that is kindled so I may pray more deeply and spread my love for God. I pray Holy Spirit for all the sinners and Saints that all may have the Love for God, Jesus and Mary the Virgin. If I could have half the Love she has for her son or fellow man, I believe God would be more then pleased, for she is Holy and the Love she has for her son, and the sorrow she has been through can still love as she does.
    I also ask that a pray could be said for me to be well again and this pain I carry would heal. so I may get the life I once had and to be as joyful as I once was.
    My Love for God, Jesus, Mary and The Holy Spirit well always stay as strong as ever and maybe even stronger when I spend eternity with them
    God Bless All
