  1. Prayed for joy in marriages and for pregnant friends. I prayed especially for my cousin and I. We are both trying to conceive and running into difficult issues.
    I actually had a health professional harshly tell me not to try for a baby this month.
    But while that made me worried and sad my husband was calm and joyful and said we should be open to a baby.
    So we are trying!

  2. To whom it may concern I say a number of these novenas because it makes me feel closer with God. I usually do not ask for anything but this last novena I asked if our family could receive the funding we need to help our small family business grow and prosper. A few yrs ago I was in corporate culture and I lost my job of 25 years due to covid. The last two years my wife and I talked about her dream of owing her own bakery. Since the job offers were few and far between I told her let’s do it. We put our life savings into this store and we have been working together the last year and half with our daughters. Long story short we received our funding and this will help us grow our small family business and keep our family working together. Love to God and Mary

  3. I got a job offer and am returning to being more prayerful and thankful after losing my way a bit after my miscarriage a couple of years back. Thank you for creating this group that allows us to pray together, not only for ourselves but for each other as well, and reaching all over the globe. God Bless us all πŸ™πŸ₯ΉπŸ₯°

  4. My husband and I have struggled in our 3 year marriage. We are involved in Retrouvaille now. During this Novena , there has been more love, peace and joy. We are ever so thankful, and ask our Blessed Mother to continue these beautiful gifts in our marriage.

  5. Thank you Lord. For family which I placed in your hands. I thank you because, although it may not seem like what I expect, I trust that you are working for me, in Jesus name, Amen.

  6. I prayed for peace, love and trust to come back between my husband and I and that we may be able to solve our problems and at the end of the novena, we reconciled. I pray that we may learn to love each other more and stay united in God’s love and bounty.
    Mary my mother, pls keep all marriages and families united

  7. I thank God for peace at home πŸ™. Also I prayed that I may get a job near home and so we a business opportunity that we are waiting for feedback on Tuesday. May it be granted according to God’s will amen.

  8. I prayed that my autistic grandson would get the medication and psychotherapy he desperately needs, but his mother refuses to provide. And I prayed for some resolution in a family stalemate. Out of the blue, on Friday afternoon, a close friend and our former child psychiatrist called me. My husband had reached out to her to resolve the stalemate, which she did. And my husband then told me our grandson will start receiving meds at the end of the month. Thank you for the prayers

  9. I prayed for the intentions mentioned in this Novena and to Mary for her many blessings for my family. I was strong and well enough to attend church 2 weeks in a row. I pray I can continue and also try to make a daily mass once a week.

  10. With aheart full of Thanksgiving to God for Lifecand Protection.
    Please thank God God with me for answered prayers through the intercession of our most Blessed Virgin Mother .

    Praying that the Good Lord will grant our hearts desires as It Pleases Him.

  14. I prayed for reconciliation and reunification of our family. Today my younger brother who had alienated himself from us sent me a message expressing concerns about one of our brothers! I called him about it and we had nearly 20 minutes of conversation. The first in some years. We agreed to talk again about our other brother’s condition.
    Things are beginning to happen. And in a dream last night, I met my late father, jolly, smart and in a brief conversation with me.
    We are sure looking forward to reunification of the family. Thank you Mother for responding to our petitions.

  15. I asked for granting of four-fold petitions of my son, one of them being good health as he was having some thyroid issues. Thank you Jesus Mary Joseph and Prayer Warriors, his last complete test report is excellent showing all readings well within the required parameters which has taken away much of the stress. He is happy, the doctor treating him is very happy and so am I. We pray, he maintains it that way. I am confident that the other petitions will also be fulfilled in God’s own time for HisWord says He is faithful to His promises

  16. I’m still hopeful that my prayer intentions for my cousin who is homeless and in dire need to be placed in a care center, is a work in progress. (It didn’t look good from the get go.) The different agencies in charge of her care have made some progress, so I’m cautiously optimistic that she will soon be in good hands. I’m thankful that she’s been put on the radar, as we were afraid she might get lost in all the red tape! God is great!

  17. I’m happy to report that my daughter and son in law have been blessed to be able to find a care provider for their infant son! Both are educators and it was literally days before my daughter had to return to the classroom! Her husband had a few days of working at home to care for their don, but I am so grateful that our prayers have been answered!

  18. Thank you blessed Mary. part of my prayers were answered. I got a small contract for 1 week. the first since covid 19 in 2020!

  22. For the last several months my mother has been so worried and distressed with the list wedding bands and engagement ring.

    My son and I have been doing all the novenas that you have shared with us.

    This evening completing the final prayer. Our Blessed Mother has interceded and answered our prayers for my mom.

    She finally found these rings tonight after 4 months.

    God bless and prayers,

  23. I was nervous about having a potentially difficult conversation with a friend–didn’t want to risk the friendship but also didn’t want to avoid doing what needed to be done–and prayed that I would be able do so while treating her properly as a friend and with true Christian charity. On Mary’s birthday and with the help of her intercession, we had the conversation without any issues at all.

  24. I offered prayers for my nieces β€” one to get a new job and the other to pass the NCLEX nursing exam. Before the end of the novena, one niece informed me that she passed the qualifying test for the new job and the other niece is now a registered nurse. Thank you Mother Mary for your intercession and thank you Jesus for the answered prayers.

  25. During confession in early July, the Priest asked me to pray for him. A week later our Novena began. I went back to the church with the intention of going to confession, I did not have much to confess but I sincerely wanted to let Father know I had been praying for him. I was running behind and was not able to go to confession but the Priest who was hearing confession was not the same Priest. Afterward he said Mass. During his Homily, he really helped to answer my Novena intention!

  26. I’m the kind of person that looks for signs, when I have predicaments. While with this novena I noticed a rosary pamphlet mysteriously placed in my eyeview when I awoke. It wasn’t there the night before. I have been forever inspired.πŸ™

  27. Hi, I thank Lord Jesus through mother marys intercession for tenants as it was one of my intentions for this novena.

  28. Thanks for opportunity to participate in the periodical Novenas; they are truly a Blessing. They help keep me connected and grounded in my Catholic faith.
    Also thankful for the many blessings we have received and continue to receive in life; especially the gift of a good life.
    Praying that many of the participants in this Novena were granted some of their requests.
    Please, remember, it Is all in the hands of God; Let Go, Let God. Amen!

  29. Jesus and Blessed Mother thank you for all the blessings you have given to us. Thank you that I can put all my trust in you. Thank you for hearing my prayers πŸ™πŸΌ answering them your time – not my time

    Thy Holy Will be done
