  1. Please pray for an old elementary friend that I had not talked to or seen in so many years that has passed. Please pray for her family and for her unexpected death. Dear God, open your arms to her and welcome her into your kingdom. Whatever she went through please let her know she was loved by many even though she may have never talked to them everyday. Her memories of her are in my heart and my thoughts. Help me also to not lose touch with others like my elementary friend. Help me to not let what others do/ say with negative tongues towards me bring to what I am now hiding away from everyone in fear of anxiety and hurt they bring upon me. Help me not to lose touch like I did with my old friend that might have just needed a friend to talk to. Amen

Please also help me be the mother my children need me to be. Let me not let others who cut down my parenting or say negative things towards the way I raise my children overwhelm, hurt, or bother me in anyway.

  27. A little background to explain my ignorance about the Catholic liturgical year. I’ve never been the worlds best Catholic. I was raised Catholic and mainline Protestant. I’ve only recently gone back yo the church because my mom is 80 now and can’t get there on her own.

    Today was the 75th anniversary of our Parish. Archbishop Gomez came up from downtown LA to the suburbs to say the anniversary Mass. He has just come back from an audience with our Holy Father, Pope Francis who sent a message asking our archdiocese to devote more time to prayer and specifically in Marian devotion.

    So my question is – are there any Mary centric Novenas coming up. I know December 12th is the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe as she is almost the Patron Saint of the US Southwest but I am unsure if any more we’ll known feasts are coming up.

  28. Thank you both for such lovely novenas. I love them and always look out for them, but now I haVE YOUR WEBSITE AND YOUR EFFICIENT REMINDERS. kEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK.

    Thank you for all you do! May God Bless and keep you!

  30. Thank you for your wonderful novenas. May I ask that you consider including the Novena to the infant of Prague? Blessings and may God be with you always.

  31. For a good and affordable apartment in the new city where we are planning to move. That my daughter finds a good job in that city and that she will be happy.That my alcoholic son finds his way to recovery so that he can have a good and productive life. That my other son find happiness in his life journey. That our financial situation will improve so that I don’t have to worry about how to pay the bills and put food on the table.

  36. I have just discovered this site from my mother and I am very excited to begin an amazing journey. Today I feel very betrayed by whom I thought was a friend. Please pray for me that I may be able to get past the anger and frustration and renew our friendship.

  37. I thank God for letting me know this site through one of my friends- chinelo, I pray God to bless her. I love this site and pray that God ll give me the grace to make good use of this site. The Novena prayers here are very good, but I implore you to add Novena prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory. These souls are very helpful in coming to our aid whenever we beseech them. Thank you. May God bless you.

  38. I just found this sight and i am so excited. I have finally after 50 years found the love of my life. What is the prayer for relationships? i really want to spend the rest of my life with him.

  39. What about a novena for St. Dominic Savio?! I need help with my studies especially the SAT which is in a few weeks! :) thank you! I really appreciate this site!

  40. I just (happily) discovered this site and am excited to be encouraged to pray more novenas. I wanted to share my novena story. I am a paramedic and a CPR instructor. As such, I pray the novena to the patron saint of paramedics – St. Michael the Archangel. Just two days ago, I received this message from my co-instructor in response to a class we taught to a local fire department (may St. Florian protect them):

    “I just wanted to let you know that the CPR/choking class you put on for us at the fire hall came in handy today. My 2 year old was choking on a piece of candy this afternoon and couldn’t breathe. I picked her up and turned her over and gave her a few back blows and the candy finally came out. Had you not taught the class I don’t know if I would have remembered what to do. The outcome was good but could have been a lot worse. I just want to say thank you for helping me to help her.”

    Prayer is truly powerful, and my prayers that my words and actions make a difference have been answered. As I pray before every ambulance call, “St. Michael, defend us in battle.”

  41. I HAVE FALLEN SEVERAL TIMES; I am going to be 77 on Septembner 22nd, and I plan to start my novena then. I believe in novenas, and would appreciata any you can send me as you publish them. God bless and keep you alwaysl,

    • Hi Janelle
      Did praying this way help in anyway? did you manage to get a breakthrough. I would like to know so that I recommend it to people I know who also have problems.

  43. I am wondering if there is a particular novena for the conversion of muslims to Christianity? With all going on in the Middle East right now I think it would be an appropriate time to pray for this,
    Thank you and God bless

  44. hi,
    the month of august is the month of the immaculate heart of mary
    is there a novena for 9 days to the immaculate heart of mary?

  45. Totally am confused about getting married, am not yet got the right woman for real marriage. In the name of Jesus I pray for this so as I can get the right one.

  46. I’m confused about praying novenas. My mother always has (and still does) prayed a rosary each of the nine days of a particular novena. She inserts the prayer for each of the 9 days with the Apostles Creed and prays for the intercession of the particular saint ( e.g. St. Anne) at each Our Father prayer before the next decade of Hail Marys. My good friend tells me that when praying most novenas we only pray the “prayer of the day” followed by 1 Hail Mary, 1 Our Father, 1 Glory Be. I think God is happy to hear our prayers no matter how we offer them, but I am curious to know the Church’s teaching on this. Thank you!

    • maybe try So far it seems to check out ok. Most people say “good luck”. I prefer have faith.

  47. I have enjoyed the novenas you have sent. Do you have one for our Lady of Mount
    Carmel. It is coming up in July?????? Thank you!

  48. Hi,in the last month I have prayed at lease 4 novena’s.and I yet to see any answered that had any great notice or change.what is I’m doing wrong.?

    • David,

      Our prayers are always heard. You are not doing anything wrong. However, you must have faith that once you pray a novena, your petition will be granted. If what you have asked for is not in direct correlation with God’s overall plan for you or whomever you have prayed for at this time, then the answer to your prayer may come to you in some unexpected way. This is how God gives us exactly what we need, at just the right time. Remember, God’s concept of time is so different from ours. One month or one year to us is the blink of an eye for our God.

      I prayed a novena for the sell of some property over a year ago. We haven’t sold it, but while we await God’s chosen buyer for our property, He has blessed us with sending renters. I have faith in my novena, but God is needing me to be patient while the buyer He chose is ready. (It is hard to be good a patience!)

      Be patient and thank God and the intercessor you prayed to for help, as your prayer was heard and will be answered in God’s time.

      • Thanks I need to read this it something what I am going through I feel so hard in my finical I keep prayer an I feel and keep asking for help thanks I know God knows how much I can take,

    • You aren’t doing anything wrong.
      Sometimes our answers come so
      gently or slowly that we don’t notice.
      Faith is our strongest way of hanging on to the novenas and God’s love for
      us. I will pray for you.
      Remember…..don’t forget to ask
      through our Blessed Mother’s intercession.

  49. I hope you will start a St. Michael the Archangel novena. So many of us need special protection for trying circumstances in our lives. St. Michael the Archangel is so powerful and he does protect us! Thank you.

    • Please pray for my family for financial break through. Praying that God will touch those we are believing to help us. Amen

    • Please pray for me also. I am almost drowning in debt and i am in urgent need of a miracle because I have nowhere to begin. I am really stressed. Please pray for me also.

  50. I am so glad I got recommended to this website by my sister at a time I needed to deepen my faith. Now, its prayer I look forward to each day! Thank you for your great work John-Paul & Annie.

    • I need help staying on track with this novena too. I pray this one periodically but I the intention I pray for is far too important of an intention to keep allowing the noise of life and temptation of being too busy to pray to get in the way. My brother gave me this one for my own intention and that of others asking for her intervention.

      Saint Rita of Cascia
      O glorious St. Rita, you pleadings before the divine crucifix have been known to grant favors that many would call the impossible. Lovely St. Rita, so humble, so pure, so devoted in you love for thy crucified  Jesus, speak on my behalf for my petition which seems so impossible from my humbled position.
      (insert request)
      Be propitious, O glorious St. Rita, to my petition, showing thy power with God on behalf of thy supplicant. Be lavish to me, as thou has been in so many wonderful cases for the greater glory of God. I promise, dear St. Rita , if my petition is granted, to glorify thee, by making known thy favor, to bless and sing thy praises forever. Relying then upon thy merits and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus I pray. Amen.

    • St. Padre Pio,
      Please intercede on my behalf to perform a miracle that my son will get employed next week with a successful interview and give him an opportunity to do God’s work and improve his self-esteem and financial burdens. We pray to you O Holy servant of Christ!
