  2. Dear prayer warriors,
    Am so so much grateful for this platform. I had for a period of four years prayed for a government job in vain. When I joined this group in July, we started with the St. Jude Novena and within the same month I was called for interviews. We then begun the St. Anne Novena. I now have appointment in the public service of Rubirizi district local government,Uganda. I can’t thank God enough because I had started losing hope.
    Greater Glory to God

  29. My daughter told me she was going to hire a nanny to take care of my granddaughter at home for a few hours twice during the week and Sunday all day. I hot really concerned because Covid cases were very high in her state. Also I was worried about a total stranger taking care of my granddaughter. I prayed and my prayers was answered when I was led to call my brother and ask if his daughter was working for summer vacation. It turns out my niece wasn’t working so my daughter was able to have a family member (cousin) babysit while she went to work. I was finally at peace after searching “” trying find a suitable match. My granddaughter got to spend sometime with my brother’s family as well. She was very excited.

    Thanks St Anne and St Joachim.🙏

    Mother Mary, you always intervene.❤

  31. I prayed to St Anne that my niece would find a good catholic guy. She met a guy last week that only lives two blocks from her in a large city. Besides being a practicing catholic, they share many same interests. She is very much looking forward to their next date this week.

  32. My house rent will be due in about a month’s time, and before the beginning of the St. Anne novena, I prayed for financial blessings in my job. God has answered my prayer as my mum has volunteered to pay part of it, and I can now use the rest of the money i intended to save up for rent and pay my school fees.
    God did provide clients for me to work for and raise the money I need.

    May God be praised both now and forever, Amen.

  33. I prayed my niece would get her old job back that she loved. She has medical issues and needs her insurance to keep her same doctors. She got a call from her employer that they were hiring her back after the first day of the novena. Thank you St. Ann!!!!

  34. My sister told me that she was going to pray the St. Anne novena for my daughter to find a good Catholic boyfriend. I said I would also pray it for her. Well, before long my older daughter was out of town and met a couple at a winery who mentioned that they had a son who was 25. My daughter told them about her sister, also 25, who happened to live in the same city as their son on the same street 2 blocks away. They also found out how they were both Catholic. They exchanged contact info, and the blind date was arranged. The 2 really hit it off! Thank you St. Anne!!

  35. I have been praying that my daughter will finally take the NCLEX (exam for nursing license) and after months of waiting, my daughter received an email last week that her papers are being processed right now. God is good , thank you for my answered prayer.

  36. My son-in-law just got a very good job when we have all lost hope in this COVID-19 unemployment crisis.
    Thank You God. Nothing is impossible with you.
    Thank You St. Ann for interceding for us. Thank You mother Mary for Your continuous help.

  37. I have a fully funded scholarship for my masters degree in UK. My mother can now see very well. I thank God for his Graces, favors and unfailing love upon my life. Amen. Let all join me to praise the name of the living God.

  38. This is my third year in a row to pray the novena to St. Anne & Joachim for the intention of my adult children to find holy spouses. No spouse yet, but my daughter has started dating a very wonderful young man! I started asking for the intercession of St. Anne & Joachim soon after the death of my father who was sometimes called JC (reminded me of Joachim). My Mom is Anny. I never met any of my grandparents so I feel a special kinship to Jesus’ grandparents. Years ago when we first came into the Catholic church, a friend gifted us with a sculpture of the holy grandparents, cradling the Holy Family. So thankful for the communion of the Saints!

  39. I prayed for my daughters upcoming surgery for breast cancer. Thankfully it had not spread and she’s doing well. Thank you St. Anne our spiritual grandmother.


  41. Thank you St. Joseph, St. Anne, and the Infant Jesus of Prague! My niece got a good, most needed job! It came as a gift… she didn’t know about it and didn’t even have to apply!! God and our heavenly “friends” are so good to us!!😊🙏🙏🙏

  42. My niece went into labor for a whole day and night from July 24th to 25th. As the doctor was getting ready for a Caesarean section, I completed St. Anne Novena committing her in prayer and voila! She started to have harsher labor pangs. She delivered naturally to the surprise of her doctor. Thank you St. Anne!

  43. To God be the glory!
    I was praying for school fees for my children. The deadline for the settlement of the school fees was on 24th July. On the afternoon of 24th July, I received my end of service benefits from my former company.
    Thank you for your prayers.

  44. I wanted to share how our prayers were answered through the St. Anne Novena. I had been praying the novenas for quite some time now, but I believe that through the intercession of St. Anne, our dream to become parents was answered. I battled with infertility for years. We are expecting our child in Feb. Thank you to everyone who prayed this novena with me!

  45. Prayers for my son and his hearing and surgery have been answered! Thank you St. Anne, Jesus and Mary! I would ask for continued prayers for him as he learns how to use the cochlear implant and hoping his job is secure.

  46. I prayed through St Ann that we get a buyer for our family land ,all buyers would be interested but change their minds last minute.but I’m grateful that finally the land was bought.

  47. I prayed for my friend / sister to conceive and few ago she told she was pregnant ! I’m beyond grateful for God’s miracle . Thank you st Anne and st Joachim for their intercession. Praying that she delivers successfully . I’m also grateful for life ; God always provide for me , I’m healthy and happy.
    Thank you 🙏🏾

  48. I have many answers to prayers! I am grateful for your novenas. My son has been offered an interview for a promotion in Denver~ He is so excited and gave all of the credit to God. He is coming back to the great faith he once had which is an even bigger answer to prayers. He also is now open to the Catholic church and I ordered him a rosary from St. Patrick’s in NYC and he has it. Pray that he will start to pray the rosary and pray that he gets this job and that he is a blessing to others in that new role. Thank you for your novena emails. It truly means so much!

  49. I prayed to St. Ann for a new better job during the novena. With a pandemic and a hiring freeze I got an interview and a month later a job offer. I am now doing the job I dreamed of having at the rate of pay I was seeking with people that are supportive. It’s truly an answered prayer!

  50. I prayed that St Anne would help me a more present and patient grandmother. I have been spending more time with my grandkids watching them as their parents prepare for a move. I thank St Anne for being by my side and being loving, engaged and patient

  51. A few days after finishing the Novena I received an offer on my house. I had been trying to sell my house for several months. I will be closing on both my old house and my new house the last week of September! Once again God has made things simple for me.

  52. My daughter and son-in-law have been trying to conceive for the past two years. They have now been told by 2 doctors that in-vitro is their only option. A friend and I prayed the St. Anne Novena with all of you. Nine days later, my daughter found out that they are pregnant! We feel it is nothing short of a miracle. We are so grateful for this precious gift!

  53. We have been praying for over one year that a financial dispute be settled between two of our children. It final was settled on Aug15!!!! Also had been praying through the intercession of our Lady . It was the feast of the Assumption. But grandmother gave it that extra boost!

  56. I want to thank dear St.Ann for the miracle of a place of attachment to horn my accounting skills after my job loss in January this year. While I continue to pray for a replacement Job, I am grateful for the attachment opportunity which has cleared the would have been gap in my CV.

  57. The St Ann Novena was an answered prayer it self. I was lost in my own world of hate and anger as my marriage was falling apart. The day I was introduced to that Novena is the day I felt a relief I had never felt before all my life. As I speak I and my husband are normal and happy.

  58. For several years I have been praying all kinds of novenas and rosaries for my health. I sleep about 1 night out of 7. I am always tired! After finishing the Saint Anne novena I began sleeping 6 nights out of 7!! I feel like living again! St Anne is also my patron saint, so I urge people to pray to their patron saints …after all these years it worked for me ! Thanks be to God, Anne

  59. Thank you St. Anne and praise be to God! My sisters, my mother and I were all praying for the right housing situation for my younger sister and our prayers were answered! She is closing on her new house in the same neighborhood as my mother and I! She couldn’t be more happy! Thank you for your guidance, Lord Jesus and for keeping us close to you, always!

  68. I have been praying to St. Joseph for quite a while that my dear daughter (and her son) would find a wonderful husband/father. A long relationship that was going nowhere had her feeling that marriage would not be in the future for her or her desire for more children. We agreed to pray the novena to St. Ann together for that intention and during the novena she joined an on-line dating app, picked a good guy who is a teacher because she felt that her first venture should be “safe” and she knew he would be background checked (she works for a bank in money laundering and fraud and is less than trustful!). She keeps saying she can’t believe this is real and I have told her to claim her miracle. He seems like the perfect match for her and it was his first time on the app, as well. Thank you, St. Ann, St. Joseph and our Heavenly Father and YOU for providing the novena !

  69. My daughter graduated with an MS in Biotechnology from Johns Hopkins, while holding down a full time job & raising 2 small children. & after an extended search , due to caronavirus, has accepted a position in a molecular biology lab. In 6 months can take a test to become a molecular biologist! Thank you God & St Anne/ St Joachim! Seems like I’ve been praying these novenas forever for this outcome. Now to continue praying for my other children suffering with RA & Crohn’s disease.

  70. Thanks to the Mary and God. My Dad’s Elderly cousin with dementia went missing and turned up two days later with minor injuries. I have been praying for my kids safety and they were protected and my daughter’s issues were revealed to me to find her help.

  71. I just want to say thank you to Sacred of Jesus Novena that you share to me in my third day of my novena Jesus answered my prayer for my daughter to be accepted in the medical school in our place in the last moment of time . He really heard my petition to him. thank you Jesus as you say ask , knock and pray it will be given to u as u believe Amen

  72. Had been praying the St. Anne novena that our son would find a job with good pay and benefits. He did find a good job with good pay, but no benefits now. It is a small company which is good for him. They say they are working on some type of insurance program. We continue to pray that they will be able to provide some type of insurance program, even if he has to pay part of the cost. We praise God and thank St. Anne for her intercession.

  73. I want to thank God for answered prayers, I have been praying to get a job in the UK, I kept applying but kept getting rejections, I really want to thank God and Saint Anne for her intercession, I was invited for an interview and had the interview today, I am thanking God because I believe I will get the job.

  80. I suffered from significant stomach issues, which started at the end of March. As time went on, and I really didn’t feel much better, I became discouraged. I have prayed the St. Anne Novena for at least 12 years, for a variety of reasons, from my son finding his wonderful wife 10 years ago, my daughter conceiving a child 2 years ago, to my own health issues this year.

  85. My sister asked me to pray that she would be able to get another job. She was offered 2 other jobs! Thank you so much, St. Ann!
    I am grateful to Saint Ann for several other intentions that have been answered, but this was the most pressing one.
