The Next Novena: It’s the Year of…

The next novena we will pray is to a powerful patron. Saint John Paul II called this saint the Guardian of the Redeemer. 

The next novena is the Novena to Saint Joseph, Husband of Mary! We will start praying together on March 10th and you can share your prayer intentions below.

The feast of St. Joseph is only one of a few that we celebrate throughout Lent, and it will be particularly special to pray this novena together this year as Pope Francis declared this year the Year of St. Joseph. You can read about that here.

One of our Pray More Lenten Retreat speakers from last year, Scott Powell, gave a talk about St. Joseph — about what we know about him and what we can learn from him. You can watch, listen to, or read through the talk here — we think it’s a perfect way to prepare to pray through his intercession:

St. Joseph: Protector and Father

St. Joseph humbly accepted his role as guardian, husband and father in the Holy Family. Therefore, St. Joseph’s intercession has been sought for centuries.

St. Joseph was clearly very close to our Lord and so we come to him with this novena with a sense of humility because of his great humility.

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

God bless you!

The Next Novena: A Novena for Protection

The next novena we will pray is to a saint that’s known as the Prince of Angels and defender of all of God’s people…

The next novena is the St. Michael the Archangel Novena

We will start praying on Friday, February 19th, and you can share your prayer intentions below.

St. Michael the Archangel is known for interceding for protection from evil and for healing.

We will pray this novena so that we may live more in accordance with Christ’s teachings, that we will be protected from the snares of the devil, that we will live for the glory of God, and that we may have the strength to defeat the disordered desires of this world.

We hope you will join us in praying this novena, and that you will share it with all of your friends & family. 

You can sign up to pray with us here:

St. Michael the Archangel’s feast day is in September. But as with every novena, you can pray it any time of the year — and we will start this one on February 19th. That’s one week away, so be sure to spread the word! 

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

God bless you!

The Next Novena – A Saint for Healing & Comfort

At some point in our lives, each of us will be affected by cancer or another terminal disease. 

Whether it affects us directly or indirectly, it can cause great suffering in our lives. 

So many of the prayer requests we receive are for those suffering with cancer. 

So the next novena we will pray is the St. Peregrine Novena for Cancer Patients starting on Wednesday, January 13th.

You can share your prayer intentions in the comment section below.

St. Peregrine is the patron saint of cancer patients. He had a cancerous ulcer on his leg which was miraculously cured when it was thought to be beyond saving. 

So we will pray this novena for all cancer patients, all those suffering from life-threatening and chronic illnesses, for their families & friends, as well as for physicians and scientists working to discover a cure and to bring relief.

We hope you will join us in praying this novena, and that you will share it with all of your friends & family.

The Novena that Inspired Pray More Novenas!

+ You can share your prayer intentions in the comments below +

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

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

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

In turn, John-Paul was inspired to create PrayMoreNovenas.com to help people remember to… Pray More Novenas! 

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

We have been amazed to see how God has brought us all together and how He is working through our prayers with every novena we say together. It’s an honor to pray with you and for your intentions. Thank you for continuing to pray with us.

Our next novena, The Immaculate Conception Novena, starts on Sunday, November 29th!

You can sign up to pray with us here:

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

🙏 An Easy Way to Grow Closer to Christ this Advent

Advent will be here before you know it! It’s a little less than two weeks away!

We hope you will join us for our online, self-paced Advent retreat

Advent is similar to Lent, and some even call it, the “Little Lent.”

It’s a season when we should spend more time in prayer, preparing for Jesus Christ’s coming. 

You know we like to help you pray more :)

Learn more and register for the retreat here:

“I loved it. I learned a lot, and I felt closer to the Lord.” That’s what one of our past participants said!

Here’s what you get when you register for the online retreat:

+ We have seven speakers

+ There will be 15 video & audio presentations

+ Each of those presentations will come with a transcript and a study guide

The retreat is self-paced which means that you can participate wherever you are and whenever you have the time. :)

The Pray More Retreat will be just like an in-person retreat that you can experience at home — anywhere, anytime. 

You’ll hear from seven speakers, each of them giving a couple of presentations that will help you be more dedicated to prayer in your everyday life this Advent — and onward into the new Liturgical year :)

You’ll also receive a transcript of their talks along with reflective study guides for each.

You can register for the retreat here:

That’s also where you can see who our speakers are and what their talks are about. 

All of the materials will be released on Monday, November 30th, and we hope they will help you to slow down during this Advent season and truly prepare to celebrate Jesus Christ’s coming at Christmas. 

God bless you!
