Continued prayers for this pregnancy to come to term and for both the baby and I to remain healthy and safe.

  23. I have been praying that the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in union with all the Bishops, as requested by Our Lady at Fatima.

Thank you God for answering the prayers of all those who have longed for this moment and prayed earnestly for it.

It was one of his top picks. God is always so good to me! Thank you for all the prayers and praying people! Amen to all my blessings!

Itโ€™s so much more easy to parent when weโ€™re both put God first.

  51. Dear Friends of Saint Joseph, this time last year I was praying this same novena with the hope of obtaining a special grace. I hoped against all hopes. I kept coming across the same message saying “to wait patiently upon the Lord”. I was slightly upset as I believed that this was an urgent situation. But when God saw the right time had come, I did receive what I had been asking for. Not only was I granted this particular favour, but one day I found myself at the Oratory of Saint Joseph (I was visiting Montreal with my friends and they took me to this shrine without my knowledge). Instantly it reminded me that all this was to confirm that what I had obtained was indeed through the intercession of Saint Joseph. Thank YOU Saint Joseph and I ask pardon for my slightest doubts. Please continue to be my PROTECTOR as the Lord God had entrusted you to care for His Beloved Son Jesus. O Saint Joseph pure of heart pray for me. AMEN ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

  52. Dear St. Joseph,

    Its through your prayer I thank God for my Son in law to change from what he was, no good husband and family man behaviour, but now I see him discussing family matters with his wife and issues concerning their daughters. I believe, through Jesus, Mary and you St. Joseph my in law will completely change from non believer status he has put himself in, and come back to his faith and look for Godly life and blessings. Be ready to speak about faith, and pray with his family everyday in the house and also attend Mass on Sundays and other occasions as required. He also need to allow his children to attend preparation classes towards receiving 1st Holy Communion.
    St. Joseph, continue praying for this and all the intentions of others in this Novena line so that we all celebrate the wonders of our Almighty God.

  53. My prayers for my 90-year-old father-in-law’s recovery from Covid was answered. There were no complications. Amen!

    Pray for Us ๐Ÿ™

  65. Good morning. I would like to appreciate what you are doing for us globally, by encouraging us to pray novenas for each other and also state our intentions. I have a friend who came to stay with me for a week in 2019. It had taken its toll on me but I now thank God for the novenas as she left voluntarily on 5 March 2022 after living with me for 4 years.
    Another issue I am grateful for is that for many years, I have been planning to apply for another post but, never got round to doing it. The process is normally tedious and discouraging. This time, I managed to apply for one on the 16th, just a day before the post was closed for review. I continue praying that God opens my way to secure this post. Bless you all.

  66. I was unduely removed from my school as the Principal because of pressure from the Community. During the novena, I asked that St. Joseph should intercede for me to be reposted to another school. On Monday, the 5th day of the novena, I was called to come for my reposting letter. To my surprise,I have been sent to a bigger and a better school as a principal.
    Thank you St. Joseph

  67. When I started this novena, I just had a huge fight with my husband of 21 years. Previous to this, I admit that I have been lukewarm in practicing my faith…Together with this novena, I prayed the rosary 1-2 times a day.
    I am happy to share that after totally ignoring our family for 7 days, my husband made amends and our family is peaceful once again. Thank you St. Joseph & Thank you Mama Mary for protecting our marriage! I’ll continue to pray daily for my husband, our marriage and our family.

  68. I give thanks to God and praise His Holy name. Thank you for your intercession St. Joseph. Last year, during the St. Joseph Novena, i requested for his intercession to our Lord to help my little sister Mary to get a spouse and a father to her 3 children and for my elder sister Elizabeth’s marriage. Today as i speak, God has blessed my my little with a spouse who is willing to father her children, and my elder sister and her husband are scheduled for the sacrament of holy matrimony in November this year.
    Thank you st.Joseph, thank you Lord Jesus, thank you Holy Spirit and thank you Father, Our God and creator.

  69. Thank you Lord for your blessings
    And answering my prayers I believe that everything will be well with my business

  72. I want to thank the Holy Trinity for everything they have been doing for me and my family. My prayers have been answered and I thank St Joseph. Some weeks ago, I was anxious and worried because I did not know how I will get money to pay for house rent. I’m currently staying with my friend and I prayed to St Joseph to help me get my own place and indeed God did it through St Joseph. I have been offered a house to stay without paying house rent. I am not going to think of house rent again. Thank you Jesus

  75. We began this year not knowing how too pay the house rent and children fees, but few days into the Novena, God miraculously provided the rent through a business my husband did and I tell there is prospect to pay up our debt and clear up the balance of the children’s school fees.

  76. Hello Lovely people of God
    In this novena my prayer requests to St Joseph is that he saves my relationship with my fiance and help him take right decision considering us. My fiance is a good man God-fearing man a I know he will be a good husband. My fiance is currently going through a similar situation as st Joseph did shorty before Marrying our Mother the blessed Mary. So am asking in prayer that st Joseph assist him in making a good decision just as the Engle did with St Joseph. Dear family am beginning to see positive changes in him and I know with the help of St Joseph it shall surely end in praise of the Lord. St Joseph pray for us.

  77. I’m here to thank God for the blessings I’m about to receive. Lord I thank and glorify your holy name ๐Ÿ™

  78. I don’t know how to express this. God is faithful and does His things in a miraculous way, especially when one least expected. Yesterday, in the evening, I was wondering where my house rent for 3 months was going to come from. Being that I’ve been jobless for quite some time and have been just in the house. My cousin friend whom we’ve not been in touch for almost two years just called checking on me and boom. Without even asking a dime from him, just sent me some cash as pocket money. God you are TRUE.

  79. Through St.Joseph novena,I have been praying for my son (Albert) who is a drug addict,and am here to testify it’s his year of restoration and he is about to receive his stolen destiny. Amen.
