Dear Pray More Novenas Community,

Merry Christmas & Happy New year!

We would really love to mail a Christmas card out to you and everyone else who is praying with us — you mean so much to us, but with so many people, it’s just not possible. Instead, we’re sharing our card with you here!

We hope it brings you Joy this Christmas season! Here it is!

We hope you’ve had a very Merry Christmas and that you feel God’s loving presence close to you — He is always near and you are never alone.

We are looking forward to praying the next novena with you, and we will announce it very soon!

Thank you for joining us in prayer and praying for the other members of Pray More Novenas. We are so grateful for you!

God Bless you!
John-Paul & Annie

    Thank you so much for the beautiful Christmas card. Wishing you the best health, wealth and love in this new year. Thank you so much for the blessings of Praying More Novenas. I still remember how my journey started with praying more novenas two years ago .

  4. Thanks soooo much to the whole ALL Family as well as to the many supporters (Financially as well as prayerfully)!
    Without this as well as God’s and the Blessed Mother’s intercession, the Devil and his cohorts would be believing they have the last laugh.
    Please remember, ‘Footprints In The Sand’: When we least expect it, God is there carrying us on His back (Literally – the Cross)!
    The battles for ‘Respect for ALL Life’ will be won thru Patience, Perseverance, & PRAYER, PRAYER, & MORE PRAYER.
    God continue to Bless You for Your Endeavors.
    Have a Blessed & Prosperous New Year!

  15. Thank you. Being a part of this community has helped me stay engaged in the life of the church. Through these devotions, I have gained a greater closeness to the Lord that inspired me to seek out more opportunities to learn, pray, and witness to his goodness. It has even inspired me to attend daily Mass more and join other communities to build on my faith. It has sustained me during this pandemic when one could feel isolated at times.

  16. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to your lovely family. May God continue to bless and uplift you. May He grant all your heart’s desires🙏🙏🙏

  17. Dear John Paul and Annie,
    Thank you for the beautiful Christmas greetings, for your prayers and your hard work putting these novenas together for us. I truly appreciate all you do and how you bring us together as a prayer family. I look forward to each novena. I ask God daily to bless you as you bless all of us. I ask as well as for an increase in prayer warriors and an ever deepening love of and closer walk with God. Thank you! Have a hopeful, fruitful new year.

  18. Thank your. Bless you for sending your personal card to each of us. It is another beautiful reminder of our continuing Christmas Season.
    The Novenas you share provide additional connection with the Saints God has given us and, for me, to more completely trust in Jesus. It is too easy today to slip into thinking we have control, can do it on our own.

  19. Happy New Year and blessings to John-Paul & Annie for a healthy and Prosperous year. Thank you for the continuous support and prayers as we all praying together with others. Thank you for the card and kind words. God Bless All the Best!

    In all Novenas, again thank you for such a strong, powerful and meaningful message to give us all Hope and direction….a hope that Yemen and Afghanistan in particular will not be forgotten in the year ahead, and especially in the coming weeks , the trench between Ukraine and Russia whilst may not be filled with embraces, but will echo a deep silence and remain empty…

  64. Merry Christmas John-Paul, Annie, and to all others! This website and the service you provide is such a blessing! I can be involved in so many novenas now and not get hung up on picking one and remembering to stick to it; this website does all that and it helps me stay more consistent in my prayers! I purposely subscribe with my work email so that these novenas will ‘interrupt’ my day and remind me that life is about working for God and not for worldly things. God bless!
