St. Joan of Arc Novena

Saint Joan of ArcThe feast day of Saint Joan of Arc is traditionally celebrated on May 30th as it was the day that she was burned at the stake in Rouen, France; but of course, you can pray through her strong intercession any time!

Since the creation of her feast day, Saint Joan of Arc has been one of the most popular saints in the history of the Catholic Church. It actually took more than 400 years after her death until she was canonized by Pope Benedict XV in 1920.

Saint Joan, also known as the Maid of Heaven, is often invoked for strength and courage, which she herself exemplified throughout her life as she followed God’s direction and led the French army to several victories during the Hundred Years War.

About St. Joan of Arc

Saint Joan of Arc was born on January 6, 1412 to very pious parents in Domremy, France. At a very early age, she heard the voice of God in her father’s garden, followed later by hearing the voices of Saint Michael, St. Catherine and St. Margaret. These voices told her to go to the King of France to help him reconquer France’s liberty.

After much opposition, Saint Joan was finally given a small army that raised a siege at Orleans. This was the first of many battles that the French army won by her leadership and guidance. Furthermore, those victories led to the coronation of Charles VII, which was a central part of her mission.

After King Charles VII’s coronation, however, Saint Joan was captured and sold to the British, who only saw her as a heretic. The British put her on trial, and after refusing to retract her statements that the voices she heard were from the saints of God, the British then convicted and sentenced her to burn at the stake. She was condemned to death as a heretic, sorceress and adulteress. She was nineteen years old.

“I fear nothing for God is with me,” she said.

When she was being burned at the stake, she asked someone to make a small crucifix which she put in the top of her dress, while a priest held one up for her to look at as she died. Witnesses said she met her fate with composure and bravery.

Many stories assert that Saint Joan of Arc’s heart did not burn with the rest of her body, and that the English ultimately threw her remains and ashes into the Seine River so there wouldn’t be any relics.

Traditional St. Joan of Arc Novena Prayers

Opening prayer:

Eternal Father, you gave us Saint Joan of Arc through your infinite love and mercy for us. We humbly ask that you send down your Holy Spirit upon us, as Your Spirit is the intermediary by which the Word goes forth from your lips and reaches the ears of the faithful. Allow me to be a witness to your Son Jesus Christ just as St. Joan of Arc was. Oh, Jesus, grant me the courage to do your will, that I may be in one accord with our Father in Heaven. I thank you for the gift of your love, which I hope to one day fully understand.

Petition Prayer:

Say 19 Our Fathers, followed by “St. Joan of Arc, by your powerful intercession, hear and answer me.”

When you finish, say the following prayer:

Saint Joan of Arc, patron of France, my patron saint, I ask you now to fight this battle with me by prayer, just as you led your troops to victory in battle. You, who were filled with the Holy Spirit and chosen by God, help me this day with the favor I ask

[here say your intention].

Grant me by your divine and powerful intercession, the courage and strength I need to endure this constant fight. Oh St. Joan, help me to be victorious in the tasks God presents to me.
I thank you and ask you for your continuing protection of God’s people.

Closing Prayer:

Sweet Saint Joan, plead for me before the throne of almighty God that I may be deemed worthy to be granted the request I have asked. Help me, Saint Joan, to be more like you in the attempt to love the Lord with all my heart, soul, and mind. Through your guidance and prayer help me to be a truly devout and loving Christian, that I may both know and see the will of God. Help me now St. Joan, in my time of need. I ask that you may always be near me guiding me closer each day to Jesus. Thank you Saint Joan for having heard my prayer.

  1. St. Joan of Arc is my patron saint through our similar yet opposite situations. She wished to stay home and weave beside her mother and God sent her away to do great public acts. I have the tendency to want to do strong public things, yet God has asked me to stay at home and do my simple duty of state. How the good God works! Where would the sacrifice be if we did what we were naturally inclined to? Thank you to my dearest patron, my dearest Love and to all who prayed for me in my time of need!
    ~Selina

  2. I have always had a deep affection for Joan of Arc. This August I was in France. I went to the spot where she was burned at the stake. My heart ached for what she endured. I pray for her help and guidance as well as for all who have a deep affection for her. In Jesus name I pray.

  3. I recently called upon St. Joan of Arc on a night of severe, troubling panic; nighttime seems to be a time where my thoughts do not stop. One night was particularly rough, and I know God gave us saints and angels to be our friends and pray for us in time of need. On this night in a state of severe panic, where I find I could not move in bed, I began to cry and I whispered, “St. Joan please help me!!” I was still for a few moments. And I all of the sudden feel this Peace wash over me. Complete Peace and relief! Like a weight completely lifted off my body and mind. I have God to thank for St. Joan coming to my rescue in time of need as well as Jesus’s unconditional Love! Thank you Saint Joan of Arc- I love you.

  4. Saint Joan of Arc intercede on my behalf that i get proper direction when it comes to my job. Please pray for me that i may overcome my fear of speaking in public which is very crucial to my career. So that i can look at each day with with purpose and perform according to what God intended me to do.

  5. St. Joan as my patron stood by me for years as I endured unjust attempts to slander my professional reputation. Because of her I completed my education. She gave me the strenghth to press forward and finish, to go out and greet the challenging environment with head-down fortitude. St. Jeanne d’Arc ora pro nobis

  6. Sweet St Joan, whose name I took upon myself for Holy Confirmation, continue to give me strength in my failing marriage. As the patron saint of soldiers you have kept my husband, a former soldier, safe in battle and delivered him home to me.

Continue to bless me and be my strength during my dark and trying times, that the lord may be near me and hold my hand in all my struggles. In Jesus name, Oh Blessed St Joan, Amen.

  14. I had the opportunity to find this website that shows the novena to my princess and guider Saint Joan of Arc. As a colombian boy I used to pray to her in spanish but now I do it in English. I have been relying faithfully in my Saint Joan of Arc because she is for me a role model that stood up for the needed and followed Our God’s will. After all of her sufferement she never showed fear or regrets. In her death she left this mortal world saying the words I like to keep up with me when I feel bad:”God is with me and I have nothing to fear”. We as christians and catholics have in Saint Joan of Arc and example of dedication, respect, obedience, morality and love from God. I have a lot to do in favor of many excluded by our society but once I’m in the grace of Our father God I will ask him to allow me to see and talk to her because its due her example and life I wanna make of this world a better place for Our farher’s needed.

  30. I was a small boy in the mid-fifties when I saw on television the movie by Otto Preminger about the life of Sainte Jeanne d’Arc. The burning scene was traumatic and I couldn’t understand why a woman should be burned in such a horrible way. However, I had little connection with her for the next 55 years, even during the time when we lived in Eastern France not very far from her birthplace. There was nothing until a fortuitous day four years ago when my adult, youngest daughter asked me if I knew any interesting persons from the Middle-Ages and I replied that she should check into the life of Jeanne d’Arc. Some months later I decided that I should do the same so I began with the Wikipedia page about her. That marked the beginning of a totally unexpected and emotional roller coaster ride, a ride that continues to this day.
    Especially noteworthy is that I had becopme a Buddhist at the age of 18 and was active in that community both in Canada and in France, until eventually drifiting away about 10 years ago when I had to admit that it wasn’t what I was looking for all this time. Now I pray to have the gift of faith, to be courageous, generous in spirit, loving, forgiving, wise and happy knowing that God exist and he cares about all of us. “Merci infiniment” to Jeanne d’Arc for guiding me to towards Jesus.

  31. That my sons and husband will rid their lives of drugs and follow Gods will. That I may say and do the right things by also following Gods will with the help of the Holy Spirit.

  33. I have been a victim of domestic violence, including being terrorized for over a decade by this individual, leading me to feel trapped, isolated, and drained…..physically and spiritually. I have always loved you Saint Joan and have prayed to you for divine strength and courage when I have had no more reserves to pull on and knowing that I had a “fight” on my hands…….I know my prayers are always answered in that I feel a sudden “grace” come over you and the feeling that your cup “runneth over”…and your able to carry on and know that you are on the side of truth and light……

  34. St. Joan, my patron saint, I ask for your prayers to be strong as you are and steadfast in purpose. Help me to see those before me that are in need of encouragement and be a witness to God’s will. May I bear your name with purpose.

  35. Dear St. Joan of Arc’ I’m coming to you with a heavy heart. I so desperatly want the gifts of the Holy Spirit! I want to go and fight for our Lord to help people be aware of Jesus in the Eucharist. For people to be aware of him in the adoration chapel. Please help me and pray that I will be able to go out and speak for him. like I have done before. I went on radio and spoke in chruchs, and people came to the adoration chaple after that, but it seems like no more opportunities have come for me to speak any more. Plead for me and tell our Lord how I long to be a soldier for him. Thank you!!!

I felt like I was with Jesus and talking to him like he was actually with me. I know he’s with us but I felt his presence. It was an amazing feeling.

Kneel at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ and ask His continued Blessings and give thanks on my behalf for all that has been given to me and for the signs that guide me. Walk with
    St. Michael, to protect me from all of my enemies and those who wish to do me harm. I ask this protection from God my Almighty Father, though Jesus Christ His Son and my Lord. Thank you, St. Joan..With Love…ME

  66. Dear St. Joan please help me as I go into battle, a battle that I feel I have been fighting and losing my entire life…as far back as I can remember, even as a child. Protect me St. Joan from all those who want to defame me and do me harm. Speak to the heart of my enemy and tell him to do the right and just thing…soften his heart and heal his mind. Guide me and help me be strong as I face my enemy…stand by my side with St. Michael, my protector, and Jesus Christ our most precious Lord and God.
    I ask this through your intercession as you kneel at the heavenly throne in the presence of Our Lord. Help me be courageous and strong as you were. With love….

  67. Saint Joan,

    I don’t know what it is inside of me telling me that everything is going to be alright, but I feel that God led me to you for s specific reason, because maybe God sees me as a warrior just like you. I am a sinner, so I am not sure if I really deserve to be asking you or God for anything right now, but deep in my heart I feel that my prayer will be answered in the best way. I can’t explain, I just know it will be answered. I’ve heard so many times that you can’t change people, they will be who they have always been, so if you can’t handle it don’t be with them. But I’m m not sure that’s necessarily true for everyone. I am praying for him, solely for him to find true happiness in his life, and for him to quit reverting to drugs to numb his pain. I have spent years trying to get him to see that God permanently erases our passion if we let Him take the wheel, and now we are in a sad, terrible place because he does not have the mental strength to take my advice. I hope this time for him Is an eye opener, I hope he seeks God, I pray he quits smoking, and I hope and pray he takes the first steps toward the path to true and honest happiness in life, with or without me. Thank you Saint Joan. AMEN.

  68. Since I was a teenager, St. Joan of Arc has always had my back. I cannot even begin to list all of the wonderful things that she has done for me over the years.

    Priez pour moi.

  69. St. Joan of Arc immediately assisted in the first day of the novena and maintained deligence against the attack of the evil one as each day I prayed the Novena. She is a stronghold and fortress in the midst of my terror and attack of humiliation. She is a wonderful advocate and I recommend her to those I know who have additions or struggle with the request to participate in evil. My friend Gale says “smoking was easy to quit. It was saying NO to the next cigarette that was hard”. Yes, Gale, you are right. Saying no to the next invitation to do ill will is the hard part. Thank you, St. Joan of Arc, for bringing hope back to my life. Love, Eric Michael Sandoval

  70. Early this year, somebody helped me in a dream. I don’t remember the details but it appeared it had to do with a war. I asked about her name. She told me is Joan of Arc.

    Too bad as a catholic I didn’t know her. I probably heard of her as a kid. But after this dream, I begun to read more about her. Maybe she is praying for me. Thanks Joan…

  71. St. Joan of Arc helped me quit smoking! :) She helped free me from the captivity of addiction, thank you St. Joan xo
