  1. St. Joseph and our Lord,

    Please bless me with a humble, hardworking, loving man. I want to enjoy a shared-life with someone I enjoy and who enjoys me. Great us peace.


  2. I’d planned to visit Washington DC during Holy , (as I do every year) and made my reservations in advance. Lo and behold, the coronavirus breaks out in the US and everything is shut down in DC, as in most of the country. I’d paid extra to make sure that I’d be able to cancel if needed. One hotel refunded my money immediately; the other hotel refused to refund me even though I’d cancelled well before the cut-off date of April 7th. I tried to contact for help, but they were swamped. I called the hotel directly and got a message stating that they couldn’t be contacted. Since I was in the midst of my Novena to celebrate St. Joseph’s day, I added the request for a swift resolution to my refund problem, and then submitted a dispute via PayPal since I’d made my payment via them. Today, March 26th, I got an email from PayPal stating that they’d decided in my favor, and I’d be refunded the full amount!!! All praise to God and love and thanks to St. Joseph for his intercession in resolving this problem in just 10 days!!! Like so many others at this time, I’ve lost my job and desperately need this refund to make ends meet until I can get new employment — St. Joseph didn’t fail! Ite ad Joseph = Go to Joseph!

  3. Thank you Jesus and Saint Joseph for helping me grow my business last year and helping me sort out very complex paperwork and follow through with legal proceedings.
    I received a sign a few days before my prayer was answered while the odds were stacked against me.

  4. Thank you Saint Joseph for interceding for me. Thanks for all your graces and for your faithfulness. Please intercede that Donagh will be freed from all addiction especially sexual addiction and temptation, will be healed and delivered, will come back to Jesus and that we will be reconciled very soon. Pray that he hears you clearly and puts you first in his life. Pray that he propose this month and that we get married this summer. May we have many children and live a holy and happy life together. I ask this through the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Jesus name. Amen.

  5. Sale of properties and car and furniture and settlement of court case in our favour and buy back flat for current market value and compensation for delay with total ease as if by magic

  6. I prayed that I will will be able to get a class schedule which is not in conflict with my job. I also prayed for my team to win the competition. Through the intercession of our dearest St. Joseph my wishes were granted. I am again asking his grace to give me the strength and lend me his knowledge to pass all my subjects so I will be able to graduate this school year. Please help me pray.

    I am claiming it in the Mighty Name of Jesus.


  7. I want to Thank St Joseph for answering my prayer. My first exam I took, I did not do well. I prayed the St Joseph novena and thirty day prayer before my second exam. During the preparation for my second exam, I prayed for motivation, confidence, resilience, perseverance, and to do well. I want to say thank you to St Joseph for pushing me each day and motivating me when I was preparing for my second exam. I made a drastic improvement from my first exam. This was made possible through St Jospeh. Thank you! I am blessed.

  8. My husband has had many interviews without any offers. He has been out of work
    since July during lots of other life changes. If the opportunity is right for him, I pray he gets the right offer soon.

  9. My prayer was answered by st. Joseph. Never thought that it will be possible to buy a house but st. Joseph helped me and in less than two months I bought a house.
    Now I am praying for a permanent job.

  10. My husband has been out of work for over a year. Please pray that he finds something to help support our family. Thank you and god bless!

  11. We need to sell our home. Downsize. I have cancer. House is lovely hate to sell. Too big for us old seniors. Wife prays to
    St Joseph every day, does the novena. Have St. Joseph &
    St. Jude in the window facing our for sale sign. She has the ladies from the church pray that the house will sell. We are not greedy
    price is right. We want to be closer to our church. We put in a conditional offer which expires soon.
    Need further prayers to help sell this house.

    God Bless

  12. St. Joseph, Please grant me this job in Vietnam ASAP that has seemingly appeared out of the blue after praying my novena to St. Joseph and is currently being discussed. I so desperately want a new and better life and surrounding than where we are in Phnom Penh. Please St. Joseph, my wife Metha and I promise to help the poor and volunteer and add more good to this world. This job would finally free us financially and I wouldn’t be subject to evil people who would not pay me or my fellow teachers as promised, nor rid their schools of the evil pedophilia we heard of from the childten and and reported. Our reward for this was being fired. We’re all in bad straights financially so prayers for them as well as those children who confided in me as well as my fellow teachers afterwards..
    Please move us to this nicer school in Vietnam with its nice, caring employers, everything aboveboard and a happier life. St. Joseph, I beg of you in Jesus’ name to remove tny obstacles and grant us this new life. May God bless anyone who has read this and please ask St. Joseph, Jesus and Mary to help my wife Metha and I to get this job I so desperately need and that St. Joseph brought to me through a fellow teacher friend.
    In Jesus Name,

We only have a few months to sell our house, or else we need to stay where we are for 7 more years. I’m praying for our house to sell quickly, and for Jesus to help us discern our next steps. I’m trying to believe that in Jesus all things are possible. But my mind gets caught up in worry and trying to see the path far ahead. I’m praying for peace because I feel like I am in a state of constant anxiety. Thank you Joseph, Mary and Jesus.

  35. I’ve been praying the St. Joseph Novena for 8 days now. Today will be the 9th day I pray it every night.
    My fiancé seems to be heading down the road to leaving me. He keeps saying the problem is him. We’ve been together for a little over 7 years got engaged but we broke up for a little over a year. He came back into my life last year and we planned on getting married after I finish my degree later this year.
    It seems that this time every year now we go through a lot of trials and tribulations and I don’t know why. So all I’ve been doing is praying for him as an individual, myself and us as a couple.
    I love him with all my heart he makes me the happiest person ever and I’ve been praying for him to overcome what it is that’s holding him back all of a sudden and to open up his heart and mind towards me and to not abandon his family and myself.

    I completed the Mary Undoer of Knots Novena this morning.

    Please keep us in your prayers.

  41. I have been full of anxiety and stress in my life. As I wait for my prayer intentions to be granted; I am passing each day since praying this novena with so much peace. I have more faith and trust in God. Though I still have a steep mountain to climb, I no longer worry about it. I feel confident that we will get over it. I have faith and trust now, all will be well,

  42. Around Thanksgiving last year my husband applied to the Diaconate in our archdiocese. I know it is a very long process, and patience is not always my best virtue. I prayed this novena every morning with an intention to help calm my anxiety and asked that St. Joseph intercede on my husband’s behalf that he may be called for this interview and that his desire to serve in this special way be answered. While it is still a long road ahead – he got the call today for the first interview in the process! Thank you St. Joseph!

    I have received blessings of the Lord through this Novena Prayers because my future spouse has returned back to me after full 9 months of separation without any explanation as to why we have separated. I would like to thank God for answering my prayers and hopefully and prayerfully we will be together until we are separated by death.

  49. Good morning and thank you for the novena to St. Joseph.
    I was wondering if I miss one day , do I double up the next day or do I add a day to the length.

    I thank you for helping me get some prayers in, in my busy day.

    Love Tina

  50. I’ve been praying this Novena because my daughter suffered a brain aneurysm that bled 3 times. She has been in a drug induced coma for 24 days. She is finally showing signs of coming back to us. I will continue to pray and thank you for all your prayers as well.

  51. I prayed for my son’s (and his batchmates’, too) success in the March 2019 Licensure Examinations for Physicians. My son reviewed for less than 2 months only (January 04 to February 26). My son needed to study 12 medical courses. It meant he should finish 6 courses each month. We felt helpless.

    I prayed the Novena to St. Joseph twice. First was in January when he was starting his review and second was during the week of his actual examinations. Before the ninth day, the results were released. My son passed along with all his batchmates.

    Truly amazing. I call it a miracle!

    Thank you very much for your intercession, St. Joseph. Praise Jesus, our Lord!
