  1. God healed my mum and gave me divine connection and financial assistance.

  3. I feel like I have been looking at my cup the wrong way. I am looking my cup half-empty when I should’ve been looking it as half-full. There have been a GREAT improvement in my relationship with my ex partner. I always pray that we’ll get back officially together in love and relationship but I overlooked how everything is getting BETTER everyday. Thank you, St. Therese for everything that you have done to be where we are right now.

    We’re now casually talking and hanging out at times. He makes my heart really happy. I still continue to pray for the restoration of our relationship. But for now, I pray that this will continue to bloom and improve and that it will get better.

    I love you, St. Therese.

  4. For my health issues. That they may subside and that my hair loss as a result may stop. I am having an incredibly hard time coping. My confidence is gone. I’m sad. I can’t focus on anything else except how much this is all affecting me. I just want to be a good mom to my son and a good wife but these health issues both what others can see and can’t see, are casting a horrible cloud over every day of my life. Please St Jude, bless me with healing for what has seemed like the most impossible cause. Amen

  7. On the same day I started St. Therese Novena, I also prayed to St. Raphael and St. Michael for my husband. His pain was uncomfortable, and he couldn’t walk normally. His doctor thought he would need surgery and ordered an ultrasound before making any decision. However, the pain went away quickly a few days after I started the novena. I believe with St. Therese, St. Raphael, and St. Michael intercession so that my husband could go back to his usual daily activities.

  8. Just read so many of the beautiful answered prayers below.

    We were praying for my wayward son, he was asked to play piano with a group at church and he agreed, continued prayers for his heart to return to the Lord and the Church and that this opportunity to share his God given gifts will help guide his seeking.

    My mother is healing beautifully, continued prayers for her to have no pain and complete healing.

    My husband and I and marriages everywhere, continue to grow and blossom!

    God is good All the time!!!

My son whom i have been praying for who is struggling with alcoholism, has now acknowledged his problem, and accepted that only in trusting God will he be able to fight this and now he has started going to the Holy mass ,even when he misses the morning Sunday mass he makes an effort to attend the evening mass. My daughter also is struggling to have children, now i feel peace within me , i know for certain there is divine intersession, and all in God”s own good time will eventually be realized, as when i finished the Novena my son was miraculously saved from a motor accident, and the family house miraculously saved from fire, i take these as signs from God , to keep on waiting on God for all these will be realize

  64. .
    I would like to recomend the new movie of Fatima.
    It will reaffirm the most sceptical of us.
    The power of prayer, faith and humanism .
    We all have the power but we need to believe,
    During this time of isolation and suspect.
    Now I have made a conscious decision to
    GOD BLESS at least 5 people every day.
    Most of time just to do it because we all need a blessing these days.
    So I say to each of you
    You every ONE and yours.

    Thank you St Thérèse and all the Saints in heaven for placing my requests to Our Lord.

  67. My fiancé is a widower with an 8 year old daughter. I prayed this novena for our relationship to grow strong and for this little girl to see me as her mother because i truly love her as my own. The other day she told her aunt she wanted to speak with me. I was so pleased because before now when i call, she’ll just greet and says she has nothing else to say.

  68. I am taking my daughter to the hospital. She has been spitting blood lately. Pray that it is nothing serious when the tests come back or that she will be completely healed. I am also having problem trying to get my husband, family to pray together for our intentions, in particular for a new home/house. I have been praying everyday since November last year, but now i feel as though i am giving up. Please pray for all the above and most especially that I persevere in my prayers, that i continue to place my trust in the Lord and that my faith be strengthen and i come to experience the Lord in a whole new way.

  79. I don’t know if my prayers were answered; they’re kind of biggies. But the day after the novena ended I was waiting to clean the confessional. Two girls were going through after mass (instead of before). Usually I’m busy busy busy. Ushering. Attending Mass. Cleaning after. I’m rarely ‘still’ in church anymore, but I was just waiting for the confessional door to open, so I was gazing up the center aisle toward the cross and tabernacle. I thought I saw a big fly in the center of the center aisle, so I grabbed a tissue to go pick it up. It wasn’t a fly. It wasn’t a rose either. But it was the tiniest red flower…. just out in the middle of the church. I love St Teresa.

  85. I thank each and everyone whom has prayed this Novena with our St Theresa intervening with with us for our intentions and request for others prayers to be fulfilled.
    I have prayed this Novena asking for prayers for a job for my older daughter.
    She not only got one, but two jobs which she is really excited to do. Her father has been now begging her to return home after kicking her out two months now.
    My daughter is only 20 years old, she told me, she has forgiven everyone that has wronged her and I most certainly grateful to hear those words coming from her. I believe our prayers were devine and God answers our request. My daughter’s action and conversations seems to be more gears towards wanting to be closer to God.
    I feel truly blessed.
    Thank you all again.
