  17. I want to bless God for this Novena on Marriage and Family. My older brother and his wife were on the verge of a divorce after three years of estranged relationship. My wife and I continued to encourage the couple to resolve their issues and work to maintain their marriage. We continued to pray for them.
    Yesterday morning, My wife and I received a message through FB messenger from my brother informing us that he has finally reconsidered to take his wife back.
    God has answered a meaningful prayer for our families.
    We Glorify God for his mercy and grace.

  18. I want to thank Mary for her gift of Peace to myself through this Novena. It wasn’t until after I celebrated Mass I realized Our Blessed Mother heard my prayer.

  19. I want to thank God for His blessings and grace. Had been out of job since 2015 and unable to get a new job since then. Prayed many novenas and kept my faith believing that one day I would come with answered prayers. At the start of this Novena for our Lady’s birthday, I specially asked her to please bless me with a new job during the novena so that I can build up again. As much as I expected a miracle, I don’t know if I really did expect it to sincerely happen.. We started the Novena on Monday August 30, by Monday 5th September I got invited for an interview (my first interview for an official job role, after many years) and at the end of the interview I got offered the job, with all the benefits attached! All praise to Jesus. And thank you Mother Mary for interceding to bring hope, love and mercy into my life and my family. Amen

  20. Please pray for my son-in-law to get vaccinated. He has irrational fears and phobias, and itโ€™s holding him back . Please pray he gets the shot to protect his family and country.

  21. Please pray with me for my Son-in-law to get vaccinated for Covid m. He has irrational fears and phobias, and itโ€™s holding him back. Please help him realize that heโ€™s putting his family at risk. Thank you

    Thank you for accepting me in praying Novenas!
    Today am so delighted that my church has accepted my subscription after waiting for over three month!! God is faithful!
    I havenโ€™t gotten the positive answer that I was expecting however I still trust in Jesus our Lord who came down because of me and you and his will and plan is bigger than mine.
    God blesses you with what you need and not what you desire! Thank you Lord!

  23. Thank you dear Jesus & Mary. My prayers have been answered. My son obtained the additional certification that he had been working for. Praise Jesus for the many continued daily blessings, especially our new grandson and for keeping our family united.

  24. I have definitely felt a deeper intimacy and oneness in our marriage over the last couple of weeks. That has been missing. I have prayed for years. Thank you.

  25. Thanks Be To God!

    Three of my intercessory prayers were answered on Sunday Sept 5th, when my 16 month old grandson was baptized Catholic. In addition, two members of my family has opened their hearts and minds in recognizing that they are beloved children of God.

    These prayers were answered through the intercession of the St. Monica Novena followed by the Novena for Marriage and Family.

    Thank you Annie, John-Paul and the PrayMoreNovenas Family for your ministry.

  26. I had experienced a year of pain, and uncertainty about the future and worry that my boyfriend does not want to marry me after almost four years together. We have been having space over the last 4-5 weeks and I asked him to honestly let me know what his intentions and plans are for our future and that marriage and having a family is so important to me. I came across this novena and prayed it steadily over the last 9 days. On the final day, I gave my worries of not getting married, of losing my love and asked God to take it all and figure it out for me and hand it back to me with clarity and instructions and that I would be fine with whatever He chooses. I gave my struggle up to God completely, and I surrendered control. At 4pm on the final day of the Novena for Marriage and Family, my boyfriend called me saying heโ€™s ready, heโ€™s ready for marriage and having children and is asking for us to meet to have a serious discussion about the plan. I am in shock, and awe of the Lord! He is truly listening and feeling my pain with me and shouldering my burdens. Thank you Blessed mother Mary for your intercession, I Know only you can understand my longing and desire to be a wife and mother. Thank you Jesus!
    I pray for all of those who have prayed this novena alongside me, may your prayers and intentions be answered, I have no doubt God has a glorious plan for us all, in His time!!

  27. For the first time in 20
    Months my daughter and two teen grandsons returned to Sunday mass, last Sunday, without it being a special holiday or request from me. Unfortunately they are only with her every other weekend for mass and their father would never take them – but I am so thankful for small favors. I ask that Hod please bless them and continue to keep them in His care. I know her life will be better if she just trusts in His power.

Today on our Mother’s birthday my life was spared as returning from evening mass, I crossed the road outside my house and from nowhere came a teenager on an electric scooter, going at great speed with no lights and he literally passed in front of me by a few inches.

The dream is about you getting labor pain and Mother Mary through novena prayer is helping you for your delivery โ™ฅ๏ธ.” I was so touched by her message and shocked at the same time. This is truly a miracle! Praise the Lord.

  45. In the beginning of this novena, I was dating a guy with same intention with me, dating in the hopes of marriage and serious relationship . Deep in my heart, I felt there’s something which my guts tell me that he isn’t ready. I prayed for him and after 3 dates, he said that he wasn’t ready to go for a serious one and want to be friends with me. It was a hard to be rejected but I know the will of the Lord. I prayed and through this novena it guided me to humble myself and be friends with him again. I still pray that God has someone for me and I believe this experiences will help me to be a better individual until I find the rightful one, my God’s gift. Thank you for giving me peace which I totally need
