  1. I began praying with you over the summer the various novena you offered for us. I was praying for my son to get a promotion at his job. There were so many steps that had to be completed for this to happen and thanks to my payers and yours on my behalf God granted each step. But then we had to wait several months for him to be given a start date and schedule. We kept up the prayer vigil and my son began his new post on December 16. But we were then faced with the problem that he could not keep this wonderful job do to the work schedule. Again we kept up the prayer vigil. Now 9 months after this journey began all our prayers have been answered. I want to tell everyone never stop praying. God hears you and answers your faithful perseverance. Amen.

  2. Dear friends,
    Glory to God!
    I thank the almighty God for answering my prayers. One of my intentions was to pray for my family’s safe journeys during their Christmas time. They planned to gather home and were traveling from different parts of the country. We hear about many accidents during the end of the year in our country (Tanzania) which is why I was so concerned. I thank God they all travelled safely, and are all back to their places.
    Please continue to keep my mother in your prayers that she may recover from her illness.
    Thank you Lord, thank you Jesus

  3. I just want to bless the Holy name of our Lord Jesus for answering my prayer intention. On the 7th day (22nd Dec) of the Novena, i attended a job interview which i had laid before our Mother Mary to intercede for me. The next day i received a call from the lead interviewer telling me i had been offered the job. I have been ecstatic about the news and for the grace received. I’m also grateful to God for other prayer intentions which are a working progress. Thank you all at Pray More Novena for your prayers. It’s a great privilege to belong to this praying family. Pray for me that i remain committed to serve God with the blessings i have received.

    God bless you all and i pray God meets you at your points of need.

    Happy & blessed New Year🙏🏽🎉

The doctors were able to get to 4cm of negative margins. I am grateful to still have the ability to see, touch, talk, hear and smell. I get to enjoy my grandbabies. I’m still in rehab. Looking forward to getting stronger and going home. God is my savior. He has held my hand through it all. Blessed

I know it will be hard but I feel this time he is getting the right help. I ask God to help him through this. He has been getting medical help but not always be truthful with them. He told them th truth this week. God walk with him please.

  28. I prayed for my step-dad who had a surgery on his neck. The surgery went great, what they removed turned out to not be cancerous, and the wound is healing up nicely. While they were working on his neck they also cleared up his throat/nose, so now he also doesn’t have a snoring problem anymore which we didn’t know they were gonna do and isn’t at all why he had the surgery so it’s just an added surprise bonus.

  29. My daughter-in-law has been trying to become pregnant with their second child. She was recently told that she is 5 weeks pregnant. Thank you so much for answering my prayers for she and my son to have a second child.

  41. Been praying these novenas for healing of my voice and swallowing functions that i might be able eat and/or speak productively again. Currently on a feeding tube. So i went to a surgeon/specialist way back in mid- October and hadn’t heard from him since.

Prayed have one or more saved babies and their moms and dads at the abortuary where we pray and we’d know about it. Always pray for the closure of the place with no replacement and conversion of the workers. We had news of a turnaround to pregnancy resource center at sidewalk last Weds., but couple are still vulnerable to abortion. Keep praying please. One employee waved at me on way out last week. Our four oldest grandchildren came to Christmas Eve afternoon Mass and my husband, their grandfather, willingly volunteered to help before I could even ask. Continuing to pray that their parents’ hearts will soften to Jesus and the Catholic Church. Praise You, Lord Jesus, Infant Jesus, forever and ever, Amen! Thank You, Baby Jesus! Thank You, Mother Mary and St. Joseph!

  43. I prayed this novena for the intention of my daughter and her family returning to church. They have fallen away from practicing their faith. Christmas Eve we were at their house for the day. When my husband and I got up to go to church, the my daughter’s family got in the car and joined us for Christmas mass. My heart was overjoyed, that my Lord and Savior heard and answered my prayers.

  44. I received the answer to a pray I’ve prayed for years. My step daughters embraced me after 20 years. I have prayed for goodness all my days for them, and at last it was a Christmas Miracle of goodness and peace with them.
