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

  23. Thank you so much my dearest John-Paul & Annie for all your sacrifices in doing a lot and a lot of work in sending all novenas, prayers, healing retreats & advent retreats which we call it spreading the words of God, just to bring to people to experience the true feeling of JOY through our Faith. The whole world is rejoicing for all the things you are doing. May I quote what Pope John Paul tells the people which runs this way: “Brothers & Sisters rejoice always Pray without ceasing.”
    J – Jesus
    O – others
    Y – You
    May our Lord continue to bless you, your family, and all our brothers & sisters in Christ.
