The Next Novena – the St. Anne Novena, 2015

New here? Join us in prayer! Click here to get novena reminders by email!

A little more than five years ago, John-Paul and I were both single, and I was praying a novena, asking God to help me meet my future husband (John-Paul).

Now, five years later, we are married and coming up on our third wedding anniversary!2ndanniversary

I would like to ask you to join me in the very same novena that I prayed more than five years ago. We will start praying on July 17th!

This novena is to a Saint who is known for truly great things.

So, which novena is it?

It’s the St. Anne Novena! This is one of our favorites.

And we start praying it very soon, so be sure to share it with your family & friends!

St. Anne is the mother of Our Lady and grandmother of Jesus. She is a very powerful intercessor!

You may have heard that unmarried women often pray to St. Anne for help in finding a spouse. But, St. Anne is also known to intercede for people for almost any request, and especially for healing.

So, I hope you will join me in praying this novena for your prayer intentions!

Your friends & family can sign up here:

We look forward to praying with you and for you!

  2. Adored Saint Anne, you know in my heart that I do not want any one else besides the one. Please help guide him in his life and help put into his heart that he does want to marry me. He feels to young and is scared and doesn’t know what he wants in life anymore. It is not that he doesn’t love me or that he doesn’t want me but he is scared. Please bring peace to his heart and help guide him. Bring him back to me so that I may continue to love and care for him. He is my best friend but he is still the love of my life. He is the only person I want to spend the rest of my life with Saint Anne please. I put my trust in you.

  5. I am so grateful! Our daughter Ana received the job she most wanted on 8th day of the novena. Also, our son in law, without a job since death of our granddaughter, nearly 5 years ago, starts his job on Monday. At. Anne, you are so good! Please continue to pray to your daughter and Her Beloved Son, your grandson, for our yet unanswered prayers!

  6. I had very serious back surgery in March. As a result, I ended up with severe nerve pain intermittently in my body. During the St.Anne novena, I prayed for some relief if it be God’s will. Right about the middle of the novena, I noticed a great amount of relief and have enjoyed that relief for about a week now. I am so grateful. Even if it is God’s will for the nerve pain to return, I am thankful for the relief I have experienced so far. Praise be to God and thank you to St. Anne for interceding on my behalf.

  7. Saint Anne please pray for me. My son is an alcoholic and because of this I get so angry that I lose my temper.

  11. Hello,

    Yesterday, God put on my heart something powerful. Here is the story:

    Just recently, I found out that there is approximately 25% of the muslim population in our country that are Jihadist. That is a very large amount. If I am not mistaken, the number that I heard is that there are approximately 1 million muslims in our country of the U.S. That is approximately 250,000 jihadists. My thought that God put on my heart was to get 250,000 people to commit to praying for the conversion of all of the jihadist. This is how it would work: Each person would take 1 jihadist as their spiritual child and pray for their conversion.

    So, after God put that on my heart, I found this website that I had never before heard of. So far, there are close to 200,000 people who pray novenas as a group.

    My thought is this: could we please pray an extra emergency novena to St. Michael the archangel for the conversion of the jihadists. Each person, in their own heart would pray the novena with the specific intention of the conversion of their spiritual muslim jihadist child. Since there is less than 250,000 people some people will take more than one spiritual child

    Please let me know through the email address I submitted to let me know if we can do this ASAP

  12. Glorious St Anne, please help my nieces & nephews find a good partner in life. Also I’m asking you to guide,protect them from all evil temptation of the world. Help also my nephew Niko to come back
    to God not to lose his faith. Through your intercession Blessed St Anne I hope God will grant my petition. Amen

  14. I am praying to God for marital blessing to me before the end of this year 2015, that God will complete what he started in my life this past few weeks, if its God will that the man in my life is the husband he promised me, then I pray that Saint Anne will pray to God for me that this year 2015 he will do it for me, no more marriage delay in my life again. Amen. I believe in my heart that before the end of this year 2015 I will get married. Amen.

  15. I do not feel comfortable praying directly to St. Anne, and so I humbly ask God to convey this message for me: Dear St. Anne, please pray that my son will have his eyes opened to his behavior that has dishonored me, and that he will make a sincere apology. Please pray that my son, daughter, son-in-law, and their sweet baby will have their spiritual blinders removed; that their hearts may be softened so that the Holy Spirit may enter in to lead them to our Savior, Jesus the Christ. Amen and Amen.

    • I am confused with this novena. Please help! Are we just supposed to say the prayer for 9 days and no rosary or how are we supposed to do this??

      • I’m sorry if you did not get a response yet, but a daily rosary is always a great blessing. We add these novena prayers for the nine days. I say my novena prayers first thing in the morning, my rosary later in the day. Don’t worry. God is so pleased when we seek Him, He will guide you. :-)
