These events were not coincidence- they were Divine Intervention.

  20. My husband has COPD and Emphysema and struggles with emotional health as well. He has become despondent and seeking the consolation of alcohol instead of the Lord.
    However yesterday he received a gift of a scooter so he is able to get outside and see and smell nature. He remarked yesterday over and over again how lucky he was to receive such a gift. He did not rely on alcohol so I pray this lasts. I reminded him it’s a gift from God.

  35. Thank you dear St Monica for your intercession.
    My singular intention for the Novena was about my son who suddenly felt ill a few days before the Novena began and was being treated for malaria.
    Sometime last year, he had suffered and miraculously recovered from a severe and satanic headache that lasted for months, for which we had recently made and sent in our testimony to an online prayer platform which my wife and I belong to, although not televised yet.
    But in the course of this recent and sudden ill health the severe headache came back, so I prayed to St Monica to kindly intervene on behalf of my son. That affliction shall not arise a second time in the life of our son.
    I’m grateful to God and happy to announce that he recovered fully from malaria and the severe headache before the end of the Novena.
    It’s my continuous prayer that affliction shall never arise again in his life, Amen.
    Glory to Jesus and honour to Mary.

  42. I thank God through the intercession of Mother Mary of Carmelite and Saint Monica of which Novenas I just completed. The night day Novena of Saint Monica after nine days fasting of 12pm to 6pm, as I was saying my petition asking Saint Monica to touch the heart of my wife to allow me come and see my daughter and to deliver her from the bondage of the evil ones who have been manipulating and trying to destroy our union, a message came into my phone as I was about to finish saying my petition and behold it was my wife. She willingly asked me that I am free to always come and see my child and make preparations of taking her for school run. I was filled with tears of joy at once and I bless God for answered prayers. I strongly have faith that God who started this good work, will bring it to divine fulfillment Amen.

She was now even keeping my grandchildren from me. Today on the 9th day of the Novena, Saint Monica and Saint Augustine brought me back my daughter and grandchildren. They came over out of the blue. I had not see them except in passing for at least 6 months. Before that it was only when she needed something. Hopefully now we can put the past behind us and start anew.

  85. Thank you for praying for job for Robert he got job and have an interview on Tuesday for a second one. Thank you be blessed

  86. I prayed for guidance for my husbands lungs. His lungs collapsed when he got Covid 2 years ago. Lady Sunday, he wasn’t feeling good we went to urgent care and he tested positive again with Covid. They took him immediately to ER and started treatments. I was praying and afraid because he only has a 1/2 lung left. They told us his lung took a pretty bad hit. I prayed for God to show us the way cuz this is his son. Next day they decided to put him on a new program called In Home Hospital Care. This way he didn’t have to stay in the hospital for another five days. After coming home and after a day his lungs started coming back up he went from 72 on oxygen level to 90. After four days he started maintaining between 93 and 95. This is the highest he’s ever been. His lung specialist said maybe this is all he needed was to get a little bit more oxygen going back into his body. Previously, he decided he didn’t want to do any more oxygen. I feel my novena was answered by showing him a little bit of oxygen in the morning and at night can keep this lung, strong until he gets his double lung transplant, or maybe doesn’t even need a lung transplant. I felt bad being so upset and angry that he got Covid again but now understand this was the path God had for him so he would see doing oxygen was the answer to helping build bag up his lung! Thank you Jesus!! Alleluia!!
