Answered Prayers from the St. Peregrine Novena, 2019

Thank you for joining us in praying for all cancer patients and others who suffer daily.

If you experienced an answered prayer during this novena, please share it with us all here.

We will continue to pray for you and your intentions!

The Next Novena – This Saint Brings Cures & 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 Saturday, January 12th.

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 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.

You can sign up to pray with us here:

St. Peregrine‘s feast day is May 1st. But as with every novena, you can pray it any time of the year — and we will start this one on January 12th. That’s just a few days away, so be sure to get the word out!

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

Annie & John-Paul,

From Our Family to Yours: Merry Christmas!

We would really love to mail a Christmas card out to you and everyone else who is praying with 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! We are looking forward to praying the next novena with you, and we will announce it soon!

Thank you for joining us in prayer and praying for the other members of Pray More Novenas.

God Bless you!
John-Paul & Annie

The Next Novena: The Christmas Novena!

We are excited to announce that the next novena we will pray is the Christmas Novena! 

This was the very first novena we ever prayed through Pray More Novenas — and that was eight years ago. At the time, we didn’t have very many people subscribed to pray with us… And now, there are more than 450,000 people praying with us! Praise God for this community!

We have prayed for the same general intention each year that we pray this novena, and that’s for an end to abortion.

There is no better time than to reflect on the most vulnerable of this world than during Advent and Christmas when we prepare for the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, who comes to us as a small baby.

We will begin praying on Sunday, December 16th!

Answered Prayers from the Immaculate Conception Novena, 2018

Immaculate Conception NovenaThank you so much for joining us in praying The Immaculate Conception Novena!

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

God is good and we want to give Him all the glory, as well as to give one another hope if your prayer intention has gone seemingly unanswered.

Do not give up hope! All things are possible with God.

He has a plan for you. He loves you. And we will continue to pray for you & your needs. You are not forgotten.

Jesus is always with us, and is especially close to us during our struggles and sufferings, and moments of what seem like Unanswered Prayers.

We hope this post will be helpful to you during this time: Unanswered Prayers.

Join us for this Online Advent Retreat!

The Pray More Advent Retreat will be available on Sunday!

The Pray More Retreat is an online retreat to help you spend more time in prayer this Advent to prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

If you sign up for the retreat, you will receive:

+ 16 Video & Audio Presentations with Transcripts, and

+ 16 Reflective Study Guides – one for each talk

We know how busy you are :)

That’s why the retreat is self-paced; that means you can watch, listen or read the presentations whenever you have the time to do it.

We hope the Pray More Retreat will help you intentionally work on your prayer life this Advent — wherever you are, and whenever you have the time.

The talks are focused on prayer, the Advent & Christmas seasons, and lessons we can learn from some of the most popular saints. 

Here are some of the topics:

+ Advent: What Are We Waiting For?

+ Letting the Lord Work in Us

+ Encountering Christ Within

+ Knowing & Doing the Will of the Father

+ Faith Through Suffering

+ Jesus’ Familial Love for Us: “His Heart Was Moved by Pity”

+ St. Joseph’s Side of the Story

+ Bible 101: A Crash Course in Scripture

+ Pray Big: “Ask for a sign from the Lord, your God”

+ Finding the Lost Sheep

+ Restless Hearts

That’s not all! You can see the rest of the topics of each of the talks here:

That’s also where you can sign up for the retreat :)

Each talk was inspired by Mass readings throughout Advent.

St. John Paul II said that the Liturgy of Advent helps us to understand fully the value and meaning of the mystery of Christmas. He said, “Advent is, so to speak, an intense training that directs us decisively toward him who already came, who will come, and who comes continuously.”

We hope the retreat will help you to slow down during this Advent season and truly prepare to celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ at Christmas.

You can register for the retreat here:

All of the materials will be released on Sunday, December 2nd.

God bless you!

The Next Novena: The Novena That Inspired This Website!

Eight years ago, Annie asked me to pray the Immaculate Conception Novena with her.

I actually turned her down, because I always had trouble finishing a novena. I would always forget.

After I thought a little bit more about it, I knew that wasn’t a good enough reason not to join her in prayer.

So, her simple request inspired me to create to help people remember to…


Pray More Novenas!

Since then more than 450,000 people have joined in praying together!

So, please join us in praying the Immaculate Conception Novena starting next Thursday, November 29th!

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

God bless you!

The Next Novena: Who is Your King?

We are very excited to announce the next novena that starts on November 17th!

It is the perfect novena to pray as we end this liturgical year and begin the next one.

This novena will give us an opportunity to re-order our lives, our hearts and our minds to our Lord.

It’s kind of like a novena for new (Liturgical) year’s resolutions!

It’s the Christ the King Novena!
