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.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

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!

  57. I was named after Saint Anne and after her daughter Mary. I was also born on Mothers Day. I was told by my father that if I pray to St Anne for 9 days that she will grant my prayer. I was 13 years old and prayed for strength. Now, that I am an adult I pray for my husband David Castillo safety and to be released from prison this year 2014. I been waiting for my husband for six years which I am very grateful to St Anne for giving me the strength to stick by my husbands side while he’s in prison. Please Saint Anne grant my Prayer to keep my husband safe out of harms way and to be released as scheduled in 2014. Thank you for hearing me
    AMEN

  58. Dear St.Anne,

    Please pray to strengthen my husband and I’s relationship. That we may become pregnant with a healthy child and raise them in the Catholic Church. Thank you for all the blessings I am offered daily.

    Amen

  59. Dear St. Anne,

    Thank You for praying for me. I was able to communicate with J last night and tell him how I feel. I pray for our relationship to strengthen through Jesus Christ and with the help of the saints. I pray for our future together and that we join in the sacrament of marriage at the right time. I pray for our finances and our financial stability be ready for our marriage. Please help him and I both be successful with the goals regarding our career and work at home job.

  60. St. Anne is my confirmation saint. I’m a grandmother now, and they call me Nina. ( derivative of Anne) We had a Huge prayer request answered. My son in law received a tremendous job offer in our home town! He is a young medic and came back from Iraq a few years ago. He and our daughter are young with three small children (one is very ill). He’s trying to finish his degree on line and support the family. All job possibilities have fallen through until today. This is one he did not seek- definitely came from St. Anne’s intercession. It came through today on her feast day, and is in the construction business. She’s patron of carpenters, among other things! Thank you, Saint Anne. And thank you John Paul and Annie for all you do. Love and prayers… Diana ( Nina)

  61. I prayed this novena for my daughter & husband that they may conceive a child. They suffered the loss off a stillborn this past January. With grateful thanks my daughter shared with me yesterday (July 25) that she is pregnant. Dearest St Anne I thank you for your intercession & pray for a healthy pregnancy & baby.

  62. Dearest Saint Anne I pray for a private intention for my Granddaughter and for her safety. Also for my daughter to open her heart and return to the sacraments and repent of all her sins, and her husband to repent of pornography and filth. Let them desire purity of heart and intentions and both desire confession.
    These prayers I ask, through your powerful intercession. I lastly pray to find a good man for myself to love and to be respected by. A love that will help and strengthen each other in Jesus name and free us both from all weakness and loneliness working together for God’s glory. Amen.

  63. I want to thank God for answered prayers through this novena to St. Anne. My hubby was paid back some money he was owed for a long time and there was no hope of recovery. I also ask St. Anne to assist me find a missing cheque in my office and I was directed to the most obscure place where I found the cheques. God be praised now and forever. Amen

  64. Prayers for good health for my body, mind & spirit. Prayers for my family for peace, love & happiness always. Thank you St. Anne for hearing our prayers!

  65. I had a unique answer to prayer during the St. Anne novena. While praying to find a husband after several heartbreaks and disappointments, a charming young man approached me 2 weeks ago to propose we consider dating. Delighted, I agreed, but I soon found myself suspicious of his intensions. It turned out that he was mostly interested in promiscuity and that he was still in a relationship with another girl. I am so grateful that I saw through his manipulative agenda, thoroughly and intelligently argued for my values, and found his now-ex-girlfriend to affirm her in breaking things off with him. He is a concealed weapons carrier and will be a doctor in the military one day, so I’m still hoping and praying for the best for me, his ex, and everyone else who’s subject to him now and in the future.

  66. St Anne,

    Thank You for all the blessings. pls pray for me that Tom would realize how lucky he is to have met me, may you heal him physically,and emoitionally but if he is not really the right man for me pls guide me to the right path and that its not too late for me to find a good husband to share my life with..

  67. Thank you St. Anne for helping my sister. We are so greatful for your intercession with her challenges! She has been through so much, we delight in your prompt help to relieve some of her stress after the loss of her husband and necessary life changes. Thank you! Thank you!

  68. I have made the novena for 9 days. Today is the ninth day and now I wait for answers. I remember praying to St Anne for my eldest child when I was pregnant and today she is 35yrs old and she is doing well. The suffix of her name is ‘ane’ and she loves her name very much. I told her the reason for her name and that she also should continue to pray to St. Anne.
    Thank You for everything.

  69. Dear St. Anne, please pray for me, that I may finally find a good man who will love me, and eventually be the man God means for me to marry, and be with for the rest of my life. I have loved before, only to have my heart broken, over and over. I am, in fact, in love now with a man who I know cannot be good for me, who isn’t, and probably will never be, ready to be in a serious relationship with anyone, much less me. Dear St. Anne, pray that I find the one who will save me from this, who WILL be ready for commitment. Please pray for me, for us.
