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

  2. My name is Audrey,

    Please pray for my daughter eyes to be healed of light sensitiveness.
    Please pray for us to obtain a suitable home to rent that is affordable. Where I live with my children is really unsuitable, to the point that the bigger children refuse to live there. There are a lot of negative vibes there, and I cannot seem to progress and prosper there.
    Please pray for me that I might make my quota each month on my sales job, as I am struggling.
    I was in danger of losing this opportunity before I received the contract in August, but I prayed the 3 day novena to the Holy Spirit, and my job was spared. However, I have to fulfill a quota of 64, which represents 8 from January to August, I have already done 19 contracts. Therefore I have to get another 45 to keep job. I am in dire strait. I am seriously financially challenged.
    I also desperately need a car to do my sales car. I have 5 children. It is really hard.

    Whatever prayers have answered so far, I say thank you.
    Please pray for us.

    A.L.M.C, St. Mary,Jm
