  12. Thanks to this novena.
    My younger brother had not spoken to me for about four months because I was against him marrying a second wife. He just called me this week that he was at my place.
    My elder brother could never call me for years. Not for anything not even family related but just suprised me this week too with a call giving me updates on what he had discussed with our Dad, something he would never do because he always looked at me as a step sister and most favoured. But I give glory to God for this milestone.

  13. God honored His words concerning my studies. I graduated and got registered by the board despite all odds. You own the entity of my praise, Lord JESUS.

  14. I asked for an answer to a difficult situation my parents were facing and the day the novena ended, I received a phone call from my brother with a solution.

  15. My OND result which has been held for months has finally been released and I have collected it to enable me write my direct entry examination.

  16. The day after the novena ended, I was driving a 40 min drive to my Chiropractor/Acupuncture appointment. I have been ill for more than a year and used up all my savings. I had been praying for a part-time job to suppliment my SSD. So I started YELLING the rosary while driving. When I was laying on the Acupuncture table I saw in my mind that Blessed Mom was standing next to me with her hand on my forehead. Then in the chiropractor room, I was crying and confided to the doctor that I needed a job. He asked if I did filing. I was hired. When I got home, in the mail was one envelope for a shrine that was asking for donations. In the envelope was a gift…a holy card with the Sacred Heart of Blessed Mom!

  28. Dear John-Paul & Annie,
    I wanted to share with you that I began saying a Novena for finances when it was shared with me by the leader of a prayer chain I belong to at church. My husband has lost his job 3 times over the last 2 years, and all of our savings is exhausted. He had received his last unemployment check the day I began the Novena. He received a job interview on the 3rd day, and a job offer on the 5ht day, ( the only offer he got in the past 6 months). Although his salary is not enough to pay our mortgage he will be getting overtime in the future. Today I received a letter from our bank stating we have been overpaying our mortgage and next month it will decrease by 200.00. They also sent a refund check for 226.00. Thank you for these Novenas they blessed us.

  29. I prayed for a child and am now pregnant am so grateful for many more blessings that I have gotten .Thank you Jesus ,thank you mother Mary.

And many thanks for our wonderful Blessed Mother’s intercession and that of Saints Jude, Maximilian Kolbe and Isaac Jogues!!

  34. My husband has contract he is running, all of a sudden he started having issues with his client so much so that he was almost relieved of the job. This novena came up and I keyed in immediately. Before the end of the novena the whole issue was resolved amicably. Thanks to our Mother Mary for always interceding for us.

  35. My daughter has been given he opportunity to work from home two days a week so that’s two days less that she has to travel a dangerous route to work.

  36. I have prayed many novenas with all of you asking God for my daughter to be able to know the blessings of motherhood. She had been trying for many years undergoing infertility treatments. She was about to give up; I never considered giving up. My prayers were finally answered and I must give testimony to our heavenly Father, the Holy Spirit, our Lord Jesus, and our blessed Mother Mary. This was a miracle because all the odds were against her. The doctor was not giving her much hope because of her age, and because of a condition called ovarian cyst syndrome. Defying all scientific opinions, she is now five months pregnant with a baby girl who will be named, Amelia Isabel. Now I am still praying, not to ask but to give thanks. Thank you for introducing me to your novenas. I am following all of them faithfully. May God bless you all!

  37. The person I was praying for was released from prison a month in advance of the expected date. I SINCERELY thank Our LORD JESUS CHRIST, HIS MOTHER, SAINTLY ANGELS AND THE SAINTS WHO INTERCEDED FOR the situation we encountered.

  60. Things are still very tough, we lost our home in October last year and have been waiting for the outcome of a Financial settlement for a year. I have uncertainty in my job, I can’t afford my rent and the landlord has said he would prefer we leave. Our belongings are in storage and due to lack of funds they are threatening to dispose of our worldly belongings.

    I can’t afford to put food on the table and as a single mother feel a failure. But I should be scared, frightened and wretched with misery. But I follow the path of the Lord, I work in a foodbank and assist those who are disadvantaged and struggling, they see my peace and happiness and feel I have no problems. When people try and sympathise with my plight and worry for me, I say the Lord won’t let me take more than I can cope with and each day he sends a little blessing. A £5 lottery win, food being heavily reduced just as I walk into the supermarket wondering how I am going to feed my children on my little budget, work opportunities. I know I am blessed and not to be scared. I am running out of time, but I am trying to focus on the Lord not my problems.

    Please keep me in your prayers and pray I get rest as I am trying not to get weary and tired, but it is hard. But having faith is keeping me strong.

  61. through faith love and happiness please help me to renew my contract fast with the end of this month they will call me with a favourable reply please help me and improve my carrieer i will pay all my outstanding bills

  62. Dearest Jesus and Mary 🙏, please heal and protect my family and I. Please Bless us Spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.

    Please heal us of depression, anxiety, TMJ, fibromyalgia, allergies, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, throat ailment, arthritis and colon problems.

    Please help our son as he continues to seek employment with God loving people. Please help him find friends who love Jesus and Mary.

    Thank you God.

  65. After St. Martha novena, my son cleaned up his room, sat by the table and shared meals with me, after a break of 5 months. My eldest son got a job, I got financial help unexpectedly so I could pay school fees for some children I help. God is indeed merciful. I’m wired to serve even more.

He is slowly awakening, letting go of his Mother’s protective bondage and the demands of worldliness. Thank you for replacing the past with the gift of wholesomeness and goodness. Thank you for positive new perspectives and eyes of love and also for helping me to quiet my thoughts and respond peacefully instead of react. Thank you Jesus and St. Michael for bringing us closer together fully, inclusively as one unshakable united front, through these beautiful Novenas with your powerful prayers for healing, transformation, conversion and solid reconciliation.

  73. My abusive husband (of 37 yrs.) went to speak with our parish priest and spoke about how he’s been living his life in our marriage. He then went to confession with our priest. He came home and said, “I want to be a good husband for you from now on”! We are now praying the rosary together every day and talking. I am seeing something that I always prayed for and dreamed of, but, had never seen before in all our years of marriage. Praise Be To God!
