We are so grateful to join you in prayer every month. Thank you for praying with us and being a part of this community!

We know God hears us. We know we are never alone. And yet, we all go through difficult times throughout our lives that can be painful and challenging.

Our next novena is for times like these — it’s The Novena for Difficult Times.

We’ll start praying on Tuesday, June 30th. You can scroll down to see which saints are included in this novena!

This novena is for anyone who may be going through a difficult time right now.

We’re really excited to announce that the next novena we’re praying is the Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus!

The Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated 19 days after Pentecost, so we start praying this novena on Wednesday, June 19th — that’s one week away!

Answered Prayers from The Pentecost Novena 2020

Thank you for joining us in praying the Holy Spirit Novena for Pentecost!

If you’ve had any of your prayers answered throughout this novena, please share those with us all below!

We will continue to pray for you and your intentions. Please do not give up on hope. God is with you! He is for you!

The Next Novena to the Holy Spirit for Pentecost!

We’re excited to announce that the next novena we’re praying is the original novena!

Novenas are an ancient tradition that goes back to the days of the Apostles.

Jesus told His disciples to pray together after His ascension into heaven, so they went to an upper room along with the Blessed Virgin Mary, (Acts 1:14) and joined constantly in prayer for nine days.

These nine days of constant prayer by the Apostles at the direction of Jesus led up to Pentecost. This is when the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples as “tongues of fire” (Acts 2:1-4). This pattern of 9 days of prayer is the basis of the novenas we pray today!

Thus, the novena is an imitation of the Lord’s command to the Apostles when they prayed for 9 days in anticipation of the coming of the Holy Spirit.

And that’s why we pray all of our novenas for nine days, followed by one final prayer on the 10th day (which is usually the feast day).

So maybe you can guess by now that the next novena we’re praying is The Novena to the Holy Spirit for Pentecost!

You can share your prayer intentions in the comments below :)

The Holy Spirit plays a BIG part in our lives.

So, as we pray, ask the Holy Spirit for something concrete and measurable. 

We will start praying on Friday, May 22nd.

Your friends & family can sign up HERE.

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

This next novena: for the knots in our lives

We hope that each novena we pray together is one more prayer that will bring you closer to Jesus, and the next novena should do just that!

The next novena we will pray is The Novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots!

Whenever we grow closer to Jesus’ mother, our mother, we grow closer to Jesus — because Mary always brings us to Jesus. 

We will start praying on Friday, May 1st.

One more thing…

We’ve been wanting to be more of a help to you during this uncertain time. Please know of our prayers for you every day.

In addition to the daily novena prayers, while we pray the Our Lady, Undoer of Knots Novena, we will share with you one talk each day from one of our past retreats.

We organize three online retreats each year: one for Lent, one in the late Summer focused on Healing, and one for Advent. I went through our past retreats and found some talks that we think will be encouraging and helpful during this time!

You don’t need to do anything to receive these talks — we will include a link to them in our everyday novena prayer e-mails :) We hope they’ll be helpful while we pray together.

You can sign up here to pray the Mary, Undoer of Knots Novena with us.

And you can share your prayer intentions below — we’re praying for you!

A little Easter gift from our family to yours…

We hope you’re having a beautiful Easter Season!

We know it may not feel like most… But one thing we love about Easter is that we celebrate it for so long… Lent lasts for 40 days, but the Easter season is 50 days long! It’s not over yet!

To continue our celebration, Annie and I wanted to send you our Easter card as a gift for you. We hope it brings you joy! It brings us joy to be able to pray with you. Thank you so much for praying with us.

Just scroll down to see our card :)  

We’re praying for you every day!

God bless you!

Please do not give up on hope or on your faith if your prayers have not been answered. Jesus is with you, you are not alone, and He hears you! We will continue to pray for you!

We hope you’ll join us in praying: “Jesus, I trust in You”

The next novena we will pray is the Divine Mercy Novena!

God’s Mercy is central to our lives and we must continually depend on it and ask for it daily.

The Divine Mercy Novena prayers were given to St. Faustina through an apparition of our Lord Jesus. Each day has a new petition that seeks God’s mercy for different purposes.

The message of Divine Mercy is a powerful and moving way to come closer to Christ.
