Peter and Paul, I prayed shewould change her mind, as at the time she didn’t want to go through chemo again. She did change her mind. It was rough. With St. Ann, I prayed she could be healed. As of today, she is in remission! Thanks to God, Saints Anne, Peter and Paul, and everyone who prayed.
    I also prayed my Dad could be helped, as doctors haven’t figured out for 18 months why he is losing blood. So far, he has gone a week after the last transfusion when they only found small areas. Before it was 3 months, then 1 month, then 2 weeks, then a week. Hoping it keeps getting longer.

  31. I was praying for a dear friends marriage. After a few days apart, during which we were praying this novena, they have both decided to truly work on their marriage and refocus on caring for each other, their family and their marriage. Please continue to pray for them as they take these baby steps back to each other.

  34. Our Grandson Anniston has showed improvement in his digestive system. We know good things will come in God’s time. Continue to pray for him.

  35. Thank you for the prayers! I started out with one intention. About midway through the novena, I found out that our son & daughter-in-law had to have an emergency C-section…six weeks early! I don’t know if I broke the novena rules, but I switched intentions and prayed fervently for the safety of our son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter. We now have a healthy, but small, granddaughter. Thank you and God Bless!

  36. I just got married with so many complications and getting pregnant was far fetched for me. I have prayed several novenas for healing and the fruit of the womb and also for my sister in-law’s safe delivery. God being so faithful her delivery was a success and few days later I found out I was pregnant. I thank God for his miraculous works and as we pray together may he continue to touch many lives.

  37. I have been praying to God for a source of income…. And on 27th July I got someone blessing me with money for investment 🙏… God is good and I know more answers are already at my door…. Hallelujah

  38. God has been so good to I and My family. Also in the lives of my beloved ones especially those around me. He has calmed my anxiety and curiosity concerning my relationship on how it’s going to be like. Because I have been having series of disappointments when it comes to having a solid relationship but am still believing Him for more miracles and when He do that for me, I will be so grateful just like my mates.

  39. I had been diagnosed with Follicular Cancer in March 2021. Following Radiotherapy in April & after 3 months, I went for a PET Scan on 28/7/2021. I visited the hospital on 4/8/2021 for my PET Scan results, it was good news that the cancerous mass has disappeared. I was elated along with my husband who accompanied me for the results.
    Still waiting for more good news, for the rest of my family members. Thank you St Anne & St Joachim.

  40. I am truly thankful to God for the goodness and grace in my life. I prayed the St. Anne Novena and it was very miraculous. I have been struggling financially for the last 3 years without a job. I prayed with the intention of job extension and God has blessed me abundantly. I have received many opportunities recently. I’m truly thankful. Thanks be to God.

  41. I recently had problems with my business partner and ended up separating in a very nasty way. I was afraid and confused but i have been praying for God’s move and direction! I have not been stressed ,stuck or confused. The Lord has been good to me. He has lead me without fear and I am sure that I’ll lead my business with wisdom and i will do well everybody.

    Very thankful for good health in these times. Something that I’m sure St. Anne is interceding on our behalf.

  42. For me I have been praying and I have been able to fast for the past three days. But am also requesting for more prayers as I wait for my results because I really request to obtain 20 points in my exams that are soon being released. Praise be to God

  43. I have been moved from my former office as head of Finance Branch in June and now I am in another Division. However, I have also applied for the same position through an internal advertisement and am shortlisted as no. 1 and am still no. 1. Thank you to the intercession of St. Anne as I thought since I was removed from that office, I would also be removed from the shortlist for that position and also to date they are still looking for a suitable person to replace me and we are already into the 3rd Month. It is a big blessing and also a big turnaround in their decision. Thank you once again and I ask if we can continue to pray together always. Julie

  44. Though these aren’t results of the 2021 novena, I want to share two powerful prayers answered from previous novenas to St. Anne. Three years ago in July, 2018, I invited my husband, daughter & son-in-law, and his parents to pray the St. Anne novena for our daughter and son-in-law to conceive; they had been experiencing infertility. Our daughter got pregnant and was due April 26, exactly 9 months from St. Anne’s feast day. The following year, July, 2019, I invited everyone in our family to pray for another daughter to meet her future husband. (We did not tell her we were praying the novena for her.) Two weeks after we finished the novena, she got a call from a yong man asking her out. They just got married this year on the first day of the St. Anne novena on July 17, 2021. Coincidence? I don’t think so!! Thank you, St. Anne, for your prayers!!

  45. I pray to St Anne one of my request was for my brother to get a job . He started his new job today. Thank you !

  46. Thank you St Anne for answering our prayers. Our son and daughter-inlaw are now expecting a child after a long wait and this will be our first grandchild. Praise God.

  58. We have been praying for months (sending out all the Novenas…) for safe delivery of my son and daughter in law triplets. They were born at 29 weeks. All healthy. No one had breathing issues.

I have tears in my eyes just typing this.

The procedure was postponed twice and considering the expenses and efforts all of us as a family exerted it cost so much time and uncertainty. So we all prayed and I prayed the St. Anne novena asking that he will be operated soon and successfully.
