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!

  45. Thank you very much John-Paul & Annie for the lovely Christmas card. May the good Lord continue to bless you and may the peace and joy of the season be yours throughout the New Year and beyond

  46. Thank you.
    That’s a dear card, a very precious thought.
    This is the best way to send cards/pictures for this generation. Many times large amounts of money are spent in developing pictures/printing, postage etc. only for the card to end up in the trash. I’ve seen unopened cards just thrown in the trash by people who don’t really care about anything but themselves, and many who hear voices to” throw this or that out”.
    I actually find pictures on the Google image search and copy and paste on an email with my own words and send them as greetings or “cards”.
    Some people don’t even care to open those.
    Well, it’s the heart of the note/message that is important, and I thank you for sending yours.
    Merry Christmas to you and your house. You are a star that shone after Christmas day to make the season live on when it was being crushed by the enemies of our souls.
    Thank you and God bless you

  47. Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to you both. Thank you and thank God for the blessings which have come to many of us through your providing the novenas for us. You have made it easy for us to pray continually for own needs as well as the community which you have established.
    May God continue to pour out His blessings upon you and all who are praying with and for you.

  48. Thank you for the lovely Christmas greeting! The message it contains has lifted my spirit on a snowy, blustery day, when COVID-19 continues to wreck havoc in our lives. A reminder that God is always with us and loves us refocuses my thoughts.
    Again, thank you!

  49. Merry Christmas to you John Paul and Annie! I love praying along with you and all who pray with Pray More Novenas🙏 I know God is answering our prayers, sometimes in ways only He knows! I have so much hope to see what He is doing with family members who are away from the Church 🙏🙏🙏

    God Bless you and your ministry ~

  50. I want to wish you a Merry Christmas ..May God be with you always..Thank you for praying with me and helping me to get closer to God..Thank you for your great work..

  51. Thank you for being you, God’s angels on earth!
    May the New Year open our hearts to love unconditionally to even those we hate . That is God’s most difficult command, but with His grace and mercy, may we be able to come near it.
    Wishing you a blessed New Year too!

  52. Hello John-Paul and Annie,

    Thank you so much for the greatness that you do with your time and prayer.

    Thank you for sharing your family Christmas card. It’s so refreshing to see such a young, truly Catholic couple. You two are beautiful, on the outside as well as on the inside.
    Before praying with you, I rarely did novenas because I found most of them to be so wordy that I just could not relate to them at all.
    Your novenas are so simple, sincere and right from the heart.
    Thank you!!

    Thank you for all you do.
    The novenas have been such a blessing to me over the last few years.
    My son is facing an addiction battle and the novenas give me hope and I am reminded to hand the problem over to God.
    He still has a way to go but there are noticeable improvements.

    I particularly remember one novena which ended with the message
    ‘Hang in there.’
    And that is what I’ll do.
    Bless you both!
