Immaculate Conception Novena

Eleven years ago, I asked John-Paul to pray the Immaculate Conception Novena with me.

He actually turned me down, because he always had trouble finishing a novena — he would always forget.

After he thought a little bit more about it, he said he knew that wasn’t a good enough reason not to join me in prayer.

So, this inspired him to create to help people remember to…


Pray More Novenas! :)

Since then, thousands of people from all around the world have joined us in praying together!

So, please join us in praying the Immaculate Conception Novena — it starts on Monday, November 29th.

You can sign up to pray with us here:

We’re looking forward to praying with you and for you! 

God bless you!

John-Paul & Annie –

  41. Dearest Mother of God, I have appealed to you often in my journey as a wife and mother because I know you understand my needs more than I do. I beg you to intercede to your Son for the complete and permanent healing of my marriage of 33 years. 4+ years of marriage counseling (now with a dedicated Catholic therapist), Retrouville, and much prayer by us, our 4 children, and our family and friends has not yet been enough. This is a very tight “knot” that needs to be permanently undone. There are, I fear, evil forces that unceasingly putting pressure on our covenant, trying to break our Holy vows and tear our family apart. Our faith is challenged, there is much despondancy, disillusionment, bewilderment, and now withdrawal and distance that separates us instead of bonding us. Longstanding wounds and personal issues created in our past and also in our marriage need to be addressed, cleansed, and healed but are avoided. Please bless and guide our therapist and our combined efforts to make this right. If you can send a strong, holy warrior to help us fight the evil that wants to break us, please send them soon, I beg this intention of you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

  42. Lord hear my prayer I pray that I can get through ticket to work today and that they mail me different providers.

Jesus I trust in You!

  45. Dear Blessed Mother, I humbly implore your help to fight for me and family against the negative forces in our lives. Please remove these wicked individuals and their corruption from our lives, homes, jobs, finances, relationships and marriages Amen.

    Dear Blessed Mother, please hear the prayers of all asking your help today Amen.

  46. Dear Mamma Mary,
