I dedicated this novena towards my job search and asked that God provides a response(positive or negative) to my anxiously awaiting interview process.

    On 16th March night, I received a regret email from the organization which in as much as it was heart breaking, it provided a sigh of relief to my anxiety.

    I thank God for the response and pray that He grants me the job am looking for according to His holly will.

  61. About two days into the novena I had to explain to a non-Christian that statues and icons don’t pray and instead are reminders for people to pray, as well as the concept of free will, the fact that the Church-State separation is to stop the government from forcing you to follow their faith, what Papal Infallibility actually means, why I converted to Catholicism aged 17, why the Great Schism of 1054 happened, Scripture does not interpret itself, and that it takes a lot of blind faith to deny the Lord’s existence. This must be the Lord preparing me for when I move to Eastern Europe to become an evangelist.

  62. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayers and answering them in accordance with your will. Thank you good St. Joseph for your rayers ad intercessions on our behalf. I love you dear Lord. I love you St. Joseph.

They were supposed to hear on this past Tuesday, but today, the last day of the novena, they heard that he was accepted!! Thank you, St. Joseph!!!

  64. I have been praying the novenas for an increase in my desire to pray more, to concentrate deeper as I pray. For the first time I feel my prayer is being answered.

  68. I have been praying that Putin will loose this war, he started in Ukraine, and now I see, today, that they have imported a statue of Mother Mary into Ukraine. I saw and heard, over EWTN news sources yesterday, that Pope Francis is going to consecrate Russia and Ukraine once again on March 25th, so that gives me hope too, for peace in that region.

  74. Thank you St Joseph my constant companion. I am taking a weekly retreat “Boundless Compassion” during Lent and this past week the message is clear I need to have more self-compassion. I am caregiver for my husband and son. The burden of finding an agency for help has been a huge stumbling block. The door has been opened to me to ask and listen to the options available. Still asking for peace of mind for my husband and son!

  75. Thank you dear GOD for my answered prayers.
    Our Pastor who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer recently and who was very sick after his 1st dose of chemo is doing good and his reaction to his second dose is much better than the first one. He was able to celebrate the Holy Mass 3x in the last 5 days which is amazing because he said the greatest fear he has after learning his diagnosis is not being able to do his ministry. Thank you, Saint Joseph, for your powerful intercession.
    Another answered prayer is growth in our Fsith and Love for GOD. So hsppy and grateful to GOD for the obvious growth and transformation in our spiritual life this past week for me and my husband as seen in the way we treat each other and the way we respond to situations and opportunities that came. Thank you, St. Joseph, our spiritual father for your help.
    For the other petitions that have not been answered I ask St. Joseph to continue praying for us and I trust that in GOD’S time they will also be answered. Thank you to everyone who prayed the novena for your loving prayers. I hope your petitions were also answered.🙏🙏🙏❤❤❤

  76. My prayers for a health concern with one of my children was answered. I always include good health , safety and happiness for my children and grandchildren. Thankyou for sharing these beautiful prayers.

  77. My youngest son continues to struggle in his college classes, meeting deadlines and completing homework, tests in a timely manner. He is very smart, that’s not the problem. The problem is his “perfectionism”. I prayed that God would help him figure out how to handle a current situation over Spring Break. Immediately after I finished praying, I received a text from my son. He stated he came up with a solution to his problem and is going to get it handled over the weekend. The text at that moment reminded me that God is always there, always listening to us. I just didn’t expect such a quick answer to my prayer. Feeling very grateful!
