Novena to St. Anne

St. Anne NovenaAlthough Saint Anne is not mentioned in the Bible, she is the holy mother of Mary and grandmother of Jesus. When we pray the St. Anne Novena, we are asking help from our Blessed Mother’s mother!

Saint Anne’s feast day is on July 26th, so the St. Anne Novena is traditionally started on July 17th — but you can pray it anytime.

Devotion to St. Anne began early in the history of the Catholic Church. As she was favored by God to become the mother of the holy Virgin Mary, she is often invoked as the Patron of mothers as well as for relationships, among other things.

Answered Prayers from this Novena

I prayed this St. Anne Novena a little more than two years ago (and many times since), and soon-after, I met my future husband. I felt like St. Anne was watching over me and praying for me as I got to know, dated and fell in love with the man I will soon call my husband.

Recite the prayer for the proper day.

St. Anne Novena, Day One

Great Saint Anne, engrave indelibly on my heart and in my mind the words that have reclaimed and sanctified so many sinners:

“What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world if he lose his own soul?” May this be the principal fruit of these prayers by which I will strive to honor you during this novena.

At your feet renew my resolution to invoke you daily, not only for the success of my temporal affairs and to be preserved from sickness and suffering, but above all, that I may be preserved from all sin, that I may gain eternal salvation and that I will receive the special grace of…

(State your intention here.)

O most powerful Saint Anne, do not let me lose my soul, but obtain for me the grace of heaven, there with you, your blessed spouse, and your glorious daughter, to sing the praise of the Most Holy and Adorable Trinity forever and ever.


Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Anne Novena, Day Two

Glorious Saint Anne, how can you be otherwise than overflowing with tenderness toward sinners like myself, since you are the grandmother of Him who shed His blood for us, and the mother of her whom the saints call advocate of sinners? To you, therefore, I address my prayers with confidence.

Vouchsafe to commend me to Jesus and Mary so that, at your request, I may be granted remission of my sins, perseverance, the love of God, charity for all mankind, and the special grace of…

(State your intention here.)

…for which I stand in need at the present time. O most powerful protectress, let me not lose my soul, but pray for me that through the merits of Jesus Christ and the intercession of Mary, I may have the great happiness of seeing them, of loving and praising them with you through all eternity.


Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Anne Novena, Day three

Beloved of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, mother of the Queen of Heaven, take us and all who are dear to us under your special care. Obtain for us the virtues you instilled in the heart of her who was destined to become Mother of God, and the graces with which you were endowed. O model of Christian womanhood, pray that we may imitate your example in our homes and families, listen to our petitions,

(State your intention here.)

Guardian of the infancy and childhood of the most Blessed Virgin Mary, obtain the graces necessary for all who enter the marriage state, that imitating your virtues they may sanctify their homes and lead the souls entrusted to their care to eternal glory. Amen.

Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Anne Novena, Day Four

Glorious Saint Anne, I kneel in confidence at your feet, for you also have tasted the bitterness and sorrow of life. My need, the cause of my request, is…

(State your intention here.)

Good Saint Anne, you who did suffer much during the twenty years that preceded your glorious maternity, I beseech you, by all your sufferings and humiliations, to grant my prayer.

I pray to you, through your love for your glorious spouse Saint Joachim, through your love for your immaculate child, through the joy you did feel at the moment of her happy birth, not to refuse me. Bless me, bless my family and all who are dear to me, so that some day we may all be with you in the glory of heaven, for all eternity.


Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Anne Novena, Day Five

Great Saint Anne, how far I am from resembling you. I so easily give way to impatience and discouragement; and so easily give up praying when God does not at once answer my request. Prayer is the key to all heavenly treasures and I cannot pray, because my weak faith and lack of confidence fail me at the slightest delay. O my powerful protectress, come to my aid, listen to my petition…

(State your intention here.)

Make my confidence and fervor, supported by the promise of Jesus Christ, increase as the trial to which God in His goodness subjects me is prolonged, that I may obtain like you more than I can venture to ask for. In the future I will remember that I am made for heaven and not for earth; for eternity and not for time; that consequently I must ask, above all, the salvation of my soul which is assured to all who pray properly and who persevere in prayer.


Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Anne Novena, Day Six

Glorious Saint Anne, mother of the Mother of God, I beg your powerful intercession for the freedom from my sins and the assistance I need in my troubles…

(State your intention here.)

What can I not hope for if you deign to take me under your protection? The Most High has been pleased to grant the prayers of sinners, whenever you have been charitable enough to be their advocate.

Therefore, I beg you to help me in all spiritual and temporal dangers; to guide me in the true path of Christian perfection, and finally to obtain for me the grace of a happy death, so that I may contemplate your beloved Jesus and daughter Mary in your loving companionship throughout all eternity.


Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Anne Novena, Day Seven

O Good Saint Anne, so justly called the mother of the infirm, the cure for those who suffer from disease, look kindly upon the sick for whom I pray.

Alleviate their sufferings; cause them to sanctify their sufferings by patience and complete submission to the Divine Will; finally deign to obtain health for them and with it the firm resolution to honor Jesus, Mary, and yourself by the faithful performance of duties.

But, merciful Saint Anne, I ask you above all for the salvation of my soul, rather than bodily health, for I am convinced that this fleeting life is given us solely to assure us a better one. I cannot obtain that better life without the help of God\’s graces. I earnestly beg them of you for the sick and for myself, especially the petition for which I am making in this novena…

(State your intention here.)

…through the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ, through the intercession of His Immaculate Mother, and through your efficacious and powerful mediation, I pray.


Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Anne Novena, Day Eight

Remember, O Saint Anne, you whose name signifies grace and mercy, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, and sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto you, good, and kind mother; I take refuge at your feet, burdened with the weight of my sins. O holy mother of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, despise not my petition…

(State your intention here.)

…but hear me and grant my prayer.


Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Anne Novena, Day Nine

Most holy mother of the Virgin Mary, glorious Saint Anne, I, a miserable sinner, confiding in your kindness, choose you today as my special advocate. I offer all my interests to your care and maternal solicitude. O my very good mother and advocate, deign to accept me and to adopt me as your child.

O glorious Saint Anne, I beg you, by the passion of my most loving Jesus, the Son of Mary, your most holy daughter, to assist me in all the necessities both of my body and my soul. Venerable Mother, I beg you to obtain for me the favor I seek in this novena…

(State your intention here.)

…and the grace of leading a life perfectly conformable in all things to the Divine Will. I place my soul in your hands and in those of your kind daughter. I ask for your favor in order that, appearing under your patronage before the Supreme Judge, He may find me worthy of enjoying His Divine Presence in your holy companionship in Heaven.


Pray for us, Saint Anne!

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

They are not a match, Come find yours!

St. Anne, Mother of the Virgin Mary

Saint Anne was born in Bethlehem and eventually married Saint Joachim, a shepherd from Nazareth, in Galilee.

Her name, Anne, actually derives from the Hebrew name Hannah meaning grace. There is not a lot of literature about the life of St. Anne, but what we do know about her comes from apocryphal literature, history and legend.

The story goes that St. Anne was married to St. Joachim for many years (some stories report as many as twenty years) without being able to have children. After much ridicule and sorrow because they could not conceive, both separately pleaded to God to take away their sterility, promising that they would dedicate their child to the service of God.

Their prayers were heard.

An angel soon appeared before both of them, declaring that St. Anne would conceive and give birth to a child who would be blessed by the entire world. That child was named Mary, and today, she is our blessed Virgin Mother. After their daughter’s birth, St. Anne and St. Joachim dedicated Mary to God at the temple of Jerusalem, where she spent a lot of her childhood.

St. Anne is the Patron of…

The intercession of St. Anne is called on especially in the following cases:

  • Mothers
  • Grandmothers
  • Unmarried women
  • Women in labor
  • Infertile women
  • Housewives
  • Cabinet-makers
  • Miners

You can pray the St. Anne Novena for any reason that you want, so go ahead and start praying!

  1. Dear St Anne, please bring me my most perfect partner. I ask that you seek this person and bring him to me. I need happiness and companionship in my life.
    Thank you x

  2. Dear John-Paul and Annie,
    Thank you for creating this website and educating us about novenas. I have been praying with you off and on for three years now, beginning in August 2012 trying to save a failing pregnancy. In June 2014 I gave up hope of having another child as we were not successful in maintaining a pregnancy for two years. Near the middle of July 2014 I thought I might be pregnant and I started to pray the St. Anne novena (patron saint of infertile women). I promised her I would name the baby after her for prayers answered. We gave him the middle name Joaquín for Joachim as he is a boy. Thank you St. Anne and St. Joachim for prayers answered!

  3. I just finished the nine day novena for the grace to be married to the man God chooses for me, whomever he may be. I am in love with my ex boyfriend but he told me that he is no longer in love with me and that he isn’t looking to be in a relationship right now. So what I want is God’s will. I submit myself to God’s will. Even if my heart is breaking I know God has this poor and weak sinner’s best interest at heart. I believe with my little weak faith that I will be married soon. St Anne pity me and pray for me.

  4. In the name of Jesus I pray and ask for blessings and protection over Tony’s love for me and my love for him and also the blessing I seek of unification together of him and I in the blessed sacrament of holy matrimony.

He also has a learning disability that we can’t quite get a bead on. Please intercede on his behalf that he may find peace of mind, joy & good friends who will include him in their activities.

  13. Dear St. Anne,

    What do I gain, if I lose my soul? Nothing! I thank you so much for not letting me lose my soul and my faith. So many people have tested me and they have failed. You, in your prayer, have blessed me with so much, even though I am not deserving. I am in tears with the thought of how much you have prayed. I come to you and ask that you continue to pray for these needs. I need a new job, that will allow me to transfer to New York. I need my joy to have his dream job. I need my daughter to get into Duke Ellington. Please, keep me in your prayers.


  14. In her early twenties, my grandmother prayed through St. Anne’s intersession in hopes for a husband. Little did she know that her future husband started praying to St. Anne the same month. Now at 87 and 93, the two have been married for 63 years and go to Mass and Adoration together weekly. Needless to say, our family owes a lot to St. Anne. Glory be to God.

  43. Dear St.Anne,mother of my mother,its me again,trouble and in trouble!How and why do i always manage to fix myself in this situations?
    The interview yesterday,my boss says i should have told him,since he was in the panel he could have pushed it for me.I was so confidence that i secured the job but after talking to him now i feel some doubts clouding in!
    Am so used to trusting in my God and Jesus that i think i forget when i should ask for humanly help.
    But i am remember before i left for the interview the among the scriptures i read was Jesus telling His disciples”Without me nothing is possible.” and i am comforted by this words in Rev. “I am the God who opens doors that no man can close and i close doors that no man can open.”
    Girded in that knowledge,i come before you Mother of my Mother, and i beseech you,kindly mum,sermon all my Angels and together intercede for me till i get an appointment letter!
    Mother,you know me deeply,without God and the heavens,am practically alone in this shaky world where everybody has a godfather and underdogs pushing things for them,all i have is God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit and Mum and You and all the Angels and the Saints,here on earth,am all by myself.Remind your Son that He promised He will never leave me alone like an orphan,please Mother,i need you to plead for me,i need you to bleed for me Mum.Please do not let me be ashamed.All my trust is in the Lord,i am begging you,please do not let me be ashamed!I have no one to fall back on,Mum please.
    This job will be a brilliant opportunity to take care of grandma better and also will help me go back to school.Mother,if this is not a worthy cause to advocate for then i don’t know what it is.
    Mother you can have Erick,i love him with all my heart but i accept that he will never come back,he will never be mine,i trade my heart to you for this job.Please mum!
    Oh Mother,if an Orphan can not depend on you in times such as this,if an orphan can not depend on Heavens to see her dreams come true,where else and who else can she turn to?
    Mother,turn your compassionate eyes anto me.I know i have messed and i am a sinner but am beggining you,take me into your laps like you would your own flesh and blood.Take my prayers and this my need into your heart as you would that of your own daughter Mother Mary,i am begging you with all that i got,if there is anything good i have ever done in this life,please Mama,please,trade that one good this for me and in return let me get this job.
    This i ask i the mighty name of your Grand Son,My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who promises that whatsoever we ask the Father through His name believing and trusting, that we have received that the Father may be glorified in the Son!The same Lord who promised that whatsoever we ask Him,whatsoever we ask in His Mighty name,that we shall receive.
    The Bible say,”Ask and it shall be given anto you,knock and the door shall be opened for you,seek and ypu shall find.”I am here and infront of the whole world i am asking Jesus please,Open this door for me,Oh God please,Open this door wide open for me.Let me get that job,please Jesus!Oh that the Father my be Glorified in You!
    My God my Rock.You who have been with me ever since,you who keep on whispering to me “Look up Peninnah,Look up” when i despair,i need you now my God,i need You to part this red sea for me!Daddy hold the sun,do not let the sun go down until i have been awarded this job,Daddy please,i know there are those watching,waiting and praying for me to fail,i know there are other candidates who did worse in the interview but there earthly connections will see them pass,Papa remember when we were seeking attachment at the Municipal then and though we knew Y. could help being the Deputy Mayor and all we decided to do it ourselves?I remeber he came and found me sitted there and he asked “Baby what are you doing here.”I said am looking for attachment,and he asked “Why didn’t you call me?” And he went in but he found i had already secured the position so he personally i think,brought me the letter?That’s the the Papa i know and trust in.The God who makes thing happen,who opens and cause men in power to serve me instead of me them.Papa remember back in high school after Mum Nora left and i was so worried i didn’t have pocket money?Haha,i remember being called to the principles office and she gave me an envelop and she told me “Someone left this for you.”And i opened and puff!More than enough money!
    Daddy!I depend on you alone because time and again you have prove me right,that indeed you are sufficient for me.”So where the worry and tears in your eyes child,”I would imagine you are asking.Daddy am human and unstable and uncertainties have a way of reeling me off my confidence.But i can proudly say that my faith is intact!
    Daddy there are million of times that you have proved to me over and over again that am not an orphan,that you are my Father,so many times i doubt you but you always carry me across the wire and the fire.
    Daddy,i know lately after that incident happen,i probably lost a mark or two in your sight,but the fact that my name was in that list,the fact that i did so great in that interview reminds me that you have not taken away your Spirit from me.Daddy,the most mercyfull One,the Only true God,let your goodness shine bright in my life again,let me sing that psalms song “When the Lord remembered the captive of Israel,we were like those who dream…”Fill my mouth with joy,laughter and praises oh Lord!
    My eyes are anto you Papaa!Let me not be ashamed!Let us not be ashamed!
    The Bible say that though i shall be standing alone,they will see an army and run!Papa!Let your goodness and mercy prevail in my life!Let me get that job and let this be the beginning of greater things.
    Daddy,you promised that i am constantly in your thoughts,that you know me by name,that i lay at the palm of your hand,Daddy,you said you have plans of prosperity for me,plans to do me good not to harm me,Papaa!May your will be done!
    May Heavens be glorified on earth!
    Father,like King David once sang “Some depend on Chariots,but we depend on the Mighty Name of our Lord!”
    I depend on you.Please break those Jericho walls for me,let me surpass them all.Open this door open wide and disperse every weapon formed against me.
    In Jesus Mighty name i pray believing and trusting that i will start working for and in the Government soon!
    Please everyone,pray with me and for me,that i may get this job i so badly need!Will be a huge break through for me!Pray with me and let show the world that our God is God that lights fire on bulls that are soaking in overflowing water!
    Thank you.
    Saint Anne,i know i will be here soon to say a big thank you and to Glorify the name of our Lord!

  59. Dear St.Anne,comforter of the sorrowful,friend to the lost and lonely,never judging but always listening with a compassion,i salute you today Oh Blessed Mother Of the Most Blessed and Merciful Virgin Mary and Grandmom to My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
    Oh Saint Anne,you have become such solace for my soul,a comforter and hope for my heart desires.
    I wanna say thank you for interceding to my prayers,for listening anto me,for receiving me and never judging me even when i condemn myself with disgust at my actions and the consequences of those deeds.
    St.Anne,am still so very sorrowful and ashamed for the sin i committed on 26th last month and i still carry the bitter fruits with me.St.Anne,it won’t go away.Please don’t give up on me,please keep on praying for me until i receive complete healing from the Lord our saviour.I know you are disappointed in me,and yeah,i too am very much disappointed,i don’t understand how i could be so stupid,to stoop so low and to break such a holy law and principle.I am in need of your divine intervention Mum.I can’t take this worrying anymore,please St.Anne,grant me another chance of purity,pray for me to be restored and purified.I promise you mum,i will remain chaste until i say i do.I promise,just please intercede for me that this infection may go away.Please ease my pain and disgust at myself.
    St.Anne,i am beginning or already began this wonderful relationship with your wonderful Grandson and each day i feel renewed and the more i dig in to the scriptures,the more i realize how much i been missing out on the goodness of our Lord Jesus Christ.I now realize,it is one thing to call yourself a christian,and its entirely different to know Jesus personally.It is not an easy journey,but He is such a loyal and personal friend.When my doubts engulf me,He tells me,”look up Peninnah,look up not down and you will see the glory of my name.”
    St.Anne,someone told me,it is not the beginning that count but the much you remain committed to the process till the very end.It is not easy Mum,so i need your help,Pray for me,i need courage and strength and grace to be a faithful spouse,servant and handmaid of my Lord Jesus Christ.

    Dear St.Anne,i have another petition.Remember in the past when i came to you and i was so confused on who i wanted to be with,well Mum,i have made up my mind!It is him,yes!I want to spend the rest of my life loving,respecting,supporting and taking care of Erick.O.P.
    I know to many people it sounds cynical and more of a fantasy considering we have not spoken for almost 4 months now leave alone the distance that stands between us,but i believe,i believe in God and in the power of prayer.St.Anne,i believe in you,in your mercy and in your compassion and i know by the end of this Novena,you will have obtained this precious desire for me,i know he is coming back,i can feel him,i can smell him and i know that He who began a good thing in us will complete it!St.Anne,i believe that the next entry am making will be filled with praises anto the Lord and a grateful hymn for you will grant my heart desires.
    Mummy,i don’t want him back for one day or two years,i want eternity by his side!Ah,i love him so much and i put his photo in my screen saver and he is smiling at me with those kind smitten eyes!I know you will obtain this for me.I know he is the man,like he used to say;Who will put babies in my belly.Haha!I know you will not fail me,i know our Lord will never denie you any request you ask of Him.He is coated with Love,His principles are love and for this reasons i trust and believe that Peninnah and Pinas is the next big thing!I know you will not let me be ashamed.
    See you soon Mum!
    Thank you in advance!!!!I love you St.Anne!I honour and adore you and your holy spouse St.Joachim.
    Thanks for listening.

  78. Dear St Anne,hii,morning,its me again,lost and more confused,well,i know you know that i did not finish the novena and the same reason as to why i did not, is what brings me here again.
    I long to meet a good man,a wonderful man to share the ups and downs,the hardships and the simple joys of life with,but every time i knee to make such a supplication,i think of E. I long for E.
    Am still very much in love with E and i know i am the one who ended it,for what seemed then as a valid reason,but looking back,i know i made a big big irrational mistake.Oh how i wish i could turn the hands of time!Then there is me and Dad fighting all the time about it,I keep praying and praying that Dad bring him back into my life but He has totally refused,so why do i still dream of him?St Anne you must have seen my dreams,they are visions that lead me where i should be and that come true,so why am i dream with him?
    If God want me not to give up on him,then why after all this months of prayers hasn’t He given me back E?
    Am conflicted St.Anne,i have met a good man but i don’t want to let him in yet because i feel like that will defile my prayers to get E back.
    St Anne,am begging you,if at all E and i stand a chance or we are meant to be together,then bring him back home today,please St Anne,you have to talk to Dad about this,tomorrow am meeting A. and if no word from E by then, i will give A a chance.
    I love E so much,if Papa and Jesus are basically coated with love,why won’t they give me back the man i dreamed of long before i met him?
    I swear i feel like i will love Erick for the rest of my life,well,not that i mind,but i would prefer we were both dancing in same tune!
    I miss him,i miss writing about him,well,i have not written anything meaningful since we broke up,when he left,(when i chased him rather) he took my heart,my art and my whole world with him.
    He is my dream,he is my beauty,my strength,weakness and inspiration.
    I wanna spend each day of my life with him,loving him and adoring him and taking care of him and supporting him and respecting him…
    Dear St.Anne,i really need your help.please give me back the man who re-defined the meaning of true love.
    Thank you in advance.

  86. St. Anne,

    The doctors are putting me on birth control in order to aid the process of healing my cyst (it’s two inches). If I don’t take the birth control the cyst may rupture causing pain and an inability to have children, but if I do take the pills I compromise my faith and values. I know the health risk to pills, deformation and risk to the baby, yet my parents want me to take it. I don’t know what to do, please I am asking for the intercession of you, St. Gianna Beretta Molla, and God for an answer.

    • Oh dear Saint Anne I am praying for me and my twin sister (Margret) that this year we shall find a good catholic husband whom God has ordained for us from heaven.

Amen
