  1. After a year of prayer and countless novenas it was the Saint Anne novena that finally ended with my husband receiving a job offer! Our family is so thankful for all the blessings we have received and for this newly answered prayer!

  2. This isn’t really an answered prayer but I do think that it is a nudge in the right direction. A few days after praying this Novena, my friend told me that she had said this prayer for her own intentions: “God, open my heart to the right people and close it to the wrong ones.” While my own Novena intentions have not yet been answered, I think that these words will help to bring them closer..and are just lovely and wise in general. Would like to share them in case they might help anyone the way it has helped me. Peace and blessings to all. Anne and John-Paul, thank you for your ministry. It is truly life-changing.

  3. I would like st Anne for giving me the strength to go through the part I thought was the hardest.I eagerly waiting to meet my life partner. St Anne I believe you’ll do it again for me

  4. One of my prayer request was for promotion, I have been in an assistant role for 4 years now with the main role being vacant for 3 years. I asked again three weeks ago about promotion and I received a letter last week that my job title will be change to the main role, but the same pay grade.
    I thank God that I do not have to go for an interview. I will continue to pray for a pay raise.

  5. i am praying to get my own home a husband and to get through with the project i want to start.I ask for forgiveness and for me to get peace. St anne please hear my petition

  6. St Ann,
    Thank you for help saving our home.
    Again you have answered my prayers now for the 2nd time. The first with my baby and now with our home. Thank you! We love you!

  7. I put another name Earlier to keep the story anonymous.

    An unbaptized friend who had recently had a big conversion experience went into some kind of mental breakdown. He was hospitalized, went back to work, still couldn’t handle it and walked off the job. That was about three weeks ago. He has a special feeling about St Anne for a bunch of reasons. On Day 1 of the Novena I received the first text I’d had from him. And tonight, he is back at work. He will be baptized on the 17th of August. As a Baptist not a Catholic and I believe this is best because his mom is Baptist and I think it’s good for him to have lots of family support. He loves the Catholic Church and the Saints and I believe they are very pleased that he’s getting baptized! He seems much better. Thank you, St Anne!!!

  8. My daughter is engaged to a terrific guy! Thank you, St. Anne, for prayers answered! Praying that they continue to grow in holiness and love for each other and God.

  9. I am currently in a very difficult time in my life and was facing an interview for a advancing in my career. I prayed the novena to St. Anne and I just found out I got the job today. There are still plenty of challenges and obstacles ahead but this answer from God really helped me out. Have faith and keep praying. God is listening.

  10. I prayed for a life partner, I was blessed with two job opportunities one of which I’m to start next month. I learnt to listen more when I pray than to always just ask. I believe God has a reason for blessing me with a job

  11. This daily prayer is my wake up call to do better about opening my email and saying the prayers. But in my absence I know you have all been praying for me!!! Our daughter’s boyfriend who is a recovering heroin addict – and who has been clean for almost 2 years just yesterday started a new job (in his field of training/electrical) after having not worked for over 10 years and not having any luck with finding a job. Many blessings through the power of prayer.

  12. My lost dog Bambino was found a couple of days ago, after one week. I prayed the St. Anne novena during that time and asked for his return, among others. I also prayed to St. Anthony, Saint of Lost Objects, and St. Francis, Saint of Animals.

    Thank you so much, St. Anne!

  13. Hello Annie & John Paul,
    I wanted to give thanks and praise to St. Anne for her intercession. I prayed for a favorable outcome on cardiac tests I had performed and praise God all of the cardiac tests were normal. I love St. Anne and pray she will continue to intercede for my family and me.
    God bless you,
    Kenny25

  14. Thank you Father for answering my prayer for Bobby. We recieved news that his thyroid cancer and his autoimmune disease is in remission. Praise God! Thank you St Anne and all that have been praying for this miracle.

  15. Thank you St. Ann!!! My son-in-law got a new, good job. I prayed that God would prepare the perfect job for him and lead him to it. And, that is exactly what happened. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  16. Thank you St. Anne and Joachim for an answer to my prayers. My daughter is an only child and had problems with her best friend and felt really alone and anxious all summer wondering how she was going to cope once school started. So we prayed the novena asking for St Anne to intercede on her behalf so God would send her companionship and help her have peace. While at orientation we bumped into her friend and she came up and gave her a hug and started crying and saying that she was sorry. In no time they were giggling again and my daughter feels way better about her new school year. Thank you St. Anne. As soon as this happened we knew it was you who had heard and come to our assistance.

  17. I would like to say thank you again St. Anne for another prayer request answered. I had been praying for my niece and her husband and children for a favourable interview. They were granted asylum in the U.S. on Tuesday, July 31, 2018. Thank you all who prayed the Novena with me. I give glory and praise to God.

  18. Thank you Saint Anne and Joachim for your intercession… Thank you God for keeping my long term benefits. Thank you all for praying this most powerful novena. I am truly humbled.

  19. I prayed for 3 very specific people/situations and I truly believe that through this novena, all of them were answered! I cannot express what I miracle this was and I so filled with gratitude and awe! God is so good! Truly blessed!

  20. My Testimony !!!

    I’m going through a very difficult and sensitive period in my life.However,through God’s Grace and Mercy can see an opportunity to change it all for the better.The most difficult issue,being that I’m restricted by law and have to follow certain not very pleasant procedures to attain my goal.The first steps of the process was very scary and I asked St.Anne’s intercession.Gladly and for God’s glory,I happened to successfully go through the first risky huge step,that opened the door for negotiations.I thank God for this and the many more blessings in my future…Amen.

  21. I would like to thank everyone in this group and also share my joy for my answered prayers. I was praying for a friend who has been trying to get pregnant and was going through a lot of fertility procedures. And that was very stressful in their marriage too. I did not tell her that I was praying this novena. But a miracle happened on day 6 she shared with me that she was pregnant. I could not believe this testimony and was almost in tears. Please continue praying for her and her husband for a healthy pregnancy and marriage.

  22. I have been praying this and a number of novenas so that my husband and I can be blessed with children. However, this time, in addition to the emails, I also used the book by Annie, and through it, got to discover many MANY areas where God has been faithful in my life, and got to discover many MANY areas where I can include God. I may not be pregnant, but I really feel that this Novena has given me the tools to heal areas which I was hoping would be solved by a baby. I believe now that when God grants us child(ren), they won’t be band-aids to solve other issues, but a blessing to lead to God. In the meantime, I will wait, and pray.

  23. Thank you St Anne for answering our prayers, we received a good news from our lawyer to go ahead with the sale agreement, as there is a conflict between us owners. our house is sold

  24. Thank you St.Anne for answered prayers.
    On the 17th July I received a call from my previous employers being invited to sign a contract for six weeks. I had been laid off at the end of December.What a relief.It came when I least expected it.

    Just to show how great our God and how powerful the prayers of St Anne’s and other Novenas are, from February I was not feeling well and towards end of April I thought I was on the road to full recovery.But lo and behold I was diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis(DVT) a condition that can be fatal.I was on total bed rest for close to five weeks. During this period I thought I was never going back to work .
    As healjng progressed the doctor advised me to start exercising,I found walking a challenging especially the first two weeks.However, when I got into the third week in which the St Anne novena commenced the walking progressed and that is the time I was called back yo work.Total recovery was made then.
    Thank you St Anne .Thank you to all Novenas who prayed for me.Thank you to Paul and Anne.

    Folks do not give up on Novenas.If your request is not answered it does not necessarily mean denial. One day it will be answered.Keep on keeping on our Lord will respond positively.
    Thank you.

  25. I just wish to pen my gratitude and thanksgiving to Novena of St Ann that my husband is granted a full time job in 1st August. Million thanks.

  26. I prayed this novena for clarity in my relationship with my boyfriend. We had been dating for a couple years and I wasn’t sure if he was ready to move forward in our relationship. The next day (July 27) he proposed!

  27. Praise be God.
    I am a Military Officer, I’m for a peace keeping Mission in another country which is not safe, terrorism is every where. When I arrived here I was deployed at a camp that ain’t very dangerous(though not place is safe on this land), for 2 months, later, I was transferred to another camp that is very dangerous and the road to and from, very risky traveling on it (many IEDs), ( it’s a miracle reaching and leaving for another destination safely). When I reached there life became so tough, challenging, but God was in control!
    It so happened, my long time friend, offered to get me an appointment in another department in a less dangerous place(H/Qs). That night I did not bother praying over it. The following day I thought of praying to St. Anne to intercede for me, so that my immediate commander gives me permission to take up the job offer.
    I decided to pray all St. Anne’s Novena prayers of 9days at once, asking for that favor, in my heart though I must confess I doubted it would come out on my favor(knowing how complicated it was, switching departments, and how rigid my immediate COMDR was).
    The day that followed, I started the Novena as it should be with Day 1 prayer, 3days after my friend’s proposal, I talked to my COMDR and he told me that was impossible, so I calmed down and forgot about the whole idea, to my heart I thought St. Anne didn’t listen to my prayer or chose to ignore, I felt down but I knew there was a reason as to why it happened that way.
    Amazingly with in less than 2 weeks, the Overall commander of the entire Battle Group I’m in, called me in the morning on phone(I remember that day I had decided to fast and pray for some thing else), he told me to prepare myself and get ready to leave that place and go back to where I was 1st deployed, and had spent 2 months.
    2ndly my colleague too, sent me some money that very morning.
    Surprisingly, none of the two favors, did I ask for, from either of the two!
    Foolishly I did not think of St. Anne being the one behind this since I was sure that she didn’t help me the time I wanted her to, until yesterday when I thought deeply about the favor of transfer from that place though not exactly to where I had asked to go, but to a much better place.
    I therefore came to a conclusion that it’s because of St. Anne’s intercession that God heard and answered my Prayers.
    I pray and hope that God answers every one who prayed this and pray more other Novenas.
    I thank you St. Anne, Our Mother Mary, Our Lord Jesus, for all the blessings we have received and still receiving in Jesus Mighty name, Amen.
    ALL GLORY AND HONOR TO GOD.
    BLESS YOU ALL.

  28. On the last day of the Novena to St. Anne I received a phone call that a kidney donor who had been previously rejected, passed a necessary medical test and would be considered as a donor for my son. Thank you St. Anne.

  29. My daughter did not go out with blind date from dating app. I was worried because she has never dated before and she just turned 18 and the whole dating app generation is foreign to me. I want my daughter to know I love her and that I trust her and pray she will always pray for the right guys to date and that she will ask and allow God to guide her to the right ones. I pray that God will bring her the right one to marry some day.

  30. I was left by my partner unexpectedly. He had got someone else pregnant and I found out he had a gambling addiction leaving me in a broken emotional and dreadful practical/financial state in that I couldn’t afford the rent to keep the roof over my head.
    I have been praying novenas over the past several months. I have now found myself in a position I never thought possible and have been able to buy my own little cottage..I exchanged contracts on 25th and complete on 3rd August.
    I can’t thank God enough and would say to anyone do not lose hope and faith… our prayers are heard and answered. Xxx

  31. Prayer has been answered. It is a work in progress but I am definitely seeing Gods hand in this. Thank you St Anne for your prayers and intercession. I am forever grateful.

  32. Thank you, thank you St. Anne for praying for me. I am healed, I am healed. I was praying for complete healing of my knee and now I am healed. Thank you Lord, thank you Jesus and thank you Holy Spirit for healing me. Glory be to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen. Thanks to everyone who prayed the Novena with me. Special thanks to John Paul & Anne your prayers.

  33. Thank you St. Anne and everyone praying for and with me. I received a job in a Catholic school that I had been praying for and a miracle in my marriage that I have been praying for.
    Praise God! Hail Mary!

  34. Thank you Saint Anne for your prayers so I could have a baby when I couldn’t get pregnant!! I got to have two babies then because of your prayers. A boy and a girl. 50 years ago. That boy has 11 year old twin boys now.
    Thank you Jesus and Mary.

  35. at the last day of praying the novena, i got an unexpected message after 4months from my ex boyfriend asking how i am. I have accepted the fact that we will no longer come into terms again. Although nearing the 4month of being separated, i cannot explain though why suddenly i was reminiscing the things about our past knowing that i have already accepted that it was totally quits this time. I was not praying specifically to make things for us. My prayer is to find somebody who will complete my family with my son given am a single parent. But whatever this turn of event is, am really hoping and praying hard that this will be a forever relationship in God’s geace and mercy and thru the intercession of this novena. Thank you, St. Anne. Amen

  36. Thank you for this website. I am encouraged to keep calm and have courage everyday to fight of all the challenges I am facing. May all those who suffer from emotional and mental distress be soothed by the calming of God. Amen.

  37. Prayed to get pregnant. It’s very early but I did get a positive test! Now praying for a smooth pregnancy and delivery!🙏🏼

  38. Thank you so much St. Anne for the answered prayer. I had a tongue biopsy last Monday. The Doctor called me up around 6 pm today and he told me that the biopsy is negative. We praise and thank God. God is good all the time.

  39. Thank you dear St. Anna for answering my prayers! I received a letter from the government says my son will receive disability payments today one day after st. Anna’s feast day. The date of the letter was July 23 which was during the Novena. This was my intention and with out a doubt my prayers were answered!

    Glory be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit now and forever and ever. Amen!

  40. I have been praying every novena with you and also I have been praying to St. Anne for a while now as she is the holy mother of our Blessed mother and a grandmother and I have been having problems wth my Son, David, I prayed for him to find his way, find help and work to pay his bills and not be causing me so much stress. Today he tells me that this nice christian man stopped and asked him if he would work with him and help him??? so I am ever so thankful and grateful to St. Anne as i truly believe that She is the one who begged our LORD to help my son and in turn help me as I am a senior and this stress and worry is really harming my health, I prayed for peace in my life too, so I thank St. Anne and hope she will continue to bless my son and me.

  41. I have been dealing with Achilles issues for years, becoming more impaired recently. I asked for healing and although not gone, it is much improved.😊

  42. St. Anne❤️

  43. I prayed this on behalf of my sister and her estranged son and he reached out several times to her. Thank you St. Anne and Joachim for your blessings in our lives.

  44. I was struggling to find a job for more than 9 years, I was blessed with a new job, in my field of choice.
    My daughter made up her mind to write her nursing exams.

  45. To God be the glory! Thank you St. Anne for your powerful intercession. I have been praying for a financial miracle and today I received some news about an inheritance.
    Remain steadfast and let your faith be strong.

    God Bless

  46. So for every novena I have prayed for the same 4 things in addition to the special intention that pray more novenas asks us to pray for. However this week has been particularly stressful for me with me out of work and one of employers telling me they were not giving me my record of employment for three months from the date I last worked.This was preventing from getting employment insurance. It was so stressful.In the final day of pray more novenas we were asked to pray for the unemployed. I did and I also asked God to provide me with some source of income so I could pay my rent by July 31. Today (July 27) EI made a decision on my claim using my last pay stub. It is an interim decision and I may owe a bit when they get my ROE but I am so grateful. Praise God!

  47. Through the powerful intercession of St. Anne, some of my prayers have been graciously answered, thanks be to God! I prayed for a good tenant to come forward on our rental home, since we are struggling with finances at this time, and a few days into Novena, we received the good news that an application was approved!
    Also, I prayed for my health, and miraculously after a month of not feeling so well, most of my symptoms subsided. I feel better.
    Lastly, my husband and I have had our ups and downs in marriage. On the feast of St. Anne we both reconciled and went to Adoration and confession with the family. It’s a step in the upward direction….Thanks be to God!
    Thank you so much for hearing my prayers and interceding on my behalf, St. Anne!

  48. I got some answers to my prayers during this novena, finally.
    1) I have a potential job opportunity at the school I went to all 13 years growing up, as a full time Pre K aide. I am SO excited and really nervous. Please continue to pray for me.
    2) We finally got some measurable rainfall.
    I am continuing to pray for God’s will to be done in my life. God bless you all.
