  1. I’ve been having such difficulty praying these last few months. Whether it be opening the Bible or just saying the Rosary.

    I had a breakthrough last week when I came across the email to start St.Monica’s novena. To my surprise I never knew St.Monica only knew her son St. Augustine

    Every reflection for these 9 days compressed my life into St.Monica’s faith, patience, hope and love. That no matter the adversities that I face in my life, God loves and cares for me it took me almost a year to re-connect to my faith. I have been anxious, uneasy, unsure and restless about my journey that 2020 changed. But now I trust God, I have hope in him, I have undying faith I have his love. I am his daughter and no matter what no matter how painful and no matter how it hurts he WILL see me through. I am the daughter of a loving and caring father that no matter what he will hold my hand, he will show me the way and he will grant me the favor that I seek in my life. Because he has never forsaken me and he won’t start now.

    Thank you so much to the Pray More Novenas Team you guys never give up on prayer and are always steadfast in our faith. Thank you all for your consistency. This platform saves and changes lives. May God continue to bless all of you. Mary and the Saints.

Church members gave me a lot of hard times without any reasons, and I prayed to Our Lord that I only have faith and prayed that the interpersonal issues between church members gives me very hard time so please Out Lord to resolve the issues, and Our Lord listened to my prayers and resolved the issues.

    2. Before leading a prayers in church, I asked Our Lord whether I should lead or not.

He put them on minoxidil (the 60 year old hair loss med) and noticed that their wounds are closing and their nails are growing soft instead of thick and calloused.
