  1. I had no heard from my youngest sister since Nov. 18 due to a misunderstanding!

  3. I prayed to St. Joseph to heal our family of a recent family conflict that kept us all in turmoil and apart for the past six months. It was a slow progression throughout the days praying the Novena but at the end my son invited me and my husband out for dinner and our evening together after all this time apart was very healing! My husband and son have since gotten together to play golf and they had a great time. I’m so very thankful to St. Joseph and the Holy Family for bringing us back together!!

  4. I prayed during the St Joseph’s novena for my husband to get a job as this would help us find a house in an area we wanted as where he was working was too expensive for us.
    My husband called this morning to tell my everything has been concluded and contract signed. So now are hoping to move to the new work area which is more affordable for us.
    Thank you St Joseph. I am still still trusting you for a job for my brother.

  5. My 84 year old dad (whose middle name is Joseph) had a successful heart valve replacement surgery, thanks to the intercession of Saint Joseph. . My parents have a great devotion to Saint Joseph, all 4 of my brothers have Joseph for their middle name. God is good.

  10. My son starts a new job on April 6. Mark (51) was laid off in October 2020. He received word on the last day of the St. Joseph Novena that was a very good chance he would get the position he applied for with the same company that laid him off in October.

  15. I had an insurance claim for tens of thousands of dollars that was being resubmitted to the hospital with questions, and stuck in system. It kept saying I could be responsible for payment.

How we deal with it with Gods grace and strength is the key.

Amen 🙏

  62. Pray more novenas.

I return all the glory to God through the intercession of St Joseph!!

  70. I thank God for the many answers to prayers. I had been praying for my husband physical healing of cancer but we did not receive the healing we prayed for. The Lord however, gave him a better healing- he went home to be with the Lord on March 10th and now he is totally healed and resting in the arms of our dear Lord.

    I pray blessings for everyone.


  71. Dear St. Joseph,

    I am so greatful to you for always helping in my needs. Thank you for your prayer, our Lord God heard us and answered our prayer. My daughter Joy finally got a new job in Singapore. God is so good. May He continue to guide my daughter on her new work. All praises and thanksgiving to our Lord God.

  72. My son is being promoted and keeping his job at the airlines. My husband had good news from the cancer doc.

  73. My son received an offer for a full time job. Another son received a good health report. Thank you St. Joseph.

  74. With my husband disappearing in front of my eyes due to Alzheimer’s, I’ve had to pick up the hammer, etc to get done what he has always done. I asked for 2 things. 1) St Joseph please help me to know how to use this ‘hammer’ and 2) help our son who is mildly retarded and relies on us to guide him thru life to be able to care and do for himself so we can stop worrying about him. In some way, St. Joseph has shown his support. This week I’ve been able to navigate the heater quiting, a flat tire and ugg my battery powered toothbrush dying (a new battery did not help). . . all on the same day! My son with some assistance from me, was able to refinance his condo and his payments lowered by $150 will be auto withdrawn from his account each month. This also happened this past week. Thank you St Joseph for asking God to send his grace to allow me to handle my challenges AND give our son some of the help he needs. I’ve been so blessed. AMEN

  75. Our son, Kirk is home, and changing his life. His scans were clear, he is off drugs, and he is making amends. Thank you Lord God, and your precious intercessors, Father St Joseph and Blessed Virgin Mary and Holy Spirit.

  76. I prayed to St. Joseph to be able to get the Covid vaccine. I would not be able to get the shot until later due to my state”s allocation and my lateness in registering. I got the call to come on March 19th, St. Joseph’s feast day. I’m so grateful.

  77. Saint Joseph holds a dear place in my heart. I prayed the St. Joseph novena throughout my fourth pregnancy. Our son was given a prenatal diagnosis which was not limited to, but included the absence of a corpus callosum (the main connective highway between the two hemispheres of the brain). After multiple ultrasounds, we were told to anticipate the birth of a child who would have severe disabilities including blindness and hemiparesis. After much prayer and a long pregnancy, our son was born with a partial corpus callosum. He walk, runs, has perfect vision, and a has been the greatest joy family! I am positive that Saint Joseph was an incredible intercessor for him (and us)!

  78. I was not close to God, but praying more novenas I’m now able to communion with Christ. But still praying for His Grace
    Thank you Jesus.

  79. I prayed for assistance for two people who were seeking employment. Both of them have been hired. Thank you to the most Loving of Fathers.

  80. I thank the Lord that my husband and I have found peace in our marriage and we are totally committed to making it work I thank you all for your prayers and I thank God for these novenas they bring us closer to the Lord and truly help me to keep a positive attitude and keep going!!!
    Thank you praymorenovenas🙏✝️♥️

  81. I have just realized that in the past when praying I would incline myself to pray to Jesus but of late I find myself praying to the Heavenly Father more often through Jesus and not forgetting Mother Mary , the Angels and the Saints I was wondering how come am not limiting myself but literally flowing in prayer i remember asking St Joseph that he prays with me

  82. I really thank you for leading us into important novena prayers. I pray to St Joseph that I write books which I begin and fail to go far with. Right now, I am at total peace of heart due intervention of the saints through the novenas, I am employed once again, and I am paying my debts!

  83. when I began the novena I had certain intentions. After a couple of days I remembered people saying if you need to sell a home to ask St Joseph for help. So I added that intention. In that week we had 3 inquiries. None worked out. But last week we had a call from a woman in a desperate need to get her own place…God provided for her and us through St. Joseph’s intercession…We go to the lawyers today. We sold. Amen 🙏

  84. My son found a job after a year so blessed and my daughter’s breast cancer was not envasive and she will have a complete recovery. Thank you st Joseph

  85. Being praying st joseph novena and it was marvelous,prayed for my friend to be stable in his place of work and get his stability permanent resident ,it was granted and also my mums ailment was better and better ..My work and my intention re all answered ..Too many prayers from st joseph novena answered was just a miracle that I can’t even say all here.. Thanks to the novena

  86. For a cure to my lung cancer. I’d like to stay with my beloved wife and 5 children, Father. 🙏🏻

  87. This novena has helped bring my husband and I closer and helped me be more understanding and patient in my words.

  88. My nephew has had severe anxiety issues following difficulties in his young life. He is in his twenties and has had no success with employment due to his debilitating anxieties.
    With thanks to our Lord and the intercession of St. Joseph, my nephew has begun a job, and with God goodness and grace, will gain confidence and will be able to be successful.
    With a grateful heart, I offer up thanks to God.
