A Novena for Impossible Causes

We’re really looking forward to this next novena — it’s one we haven’t prayed together before! But it’s been one that has been the most requested :)

The next novena is through the intercession of St. Rita of Cascia.

St. Rita, together with St. Jude, is known as the patron saint of impossible causes. She’s also the patron saint of difficult marriages, infertility and parenthood.

We will start the St. Rita Novena on January 31st.

St. Rita was a wife, mother, widow, and then she became a nun in a religious community.

Her life was full of difficult trials. Her husband was harsh and cruel. Her two sons passed away before she did. And she was not initially accepted into her religious community.

However, St. Rita was known for her strong faith and perseverance in prayer. She often meditated on Christ’s passion, and later in her life, she developed wounds on her forehead, which many associated with the wounds from Christ’s crown of thorns.

We will pray this novena to ask for St. Rita’s intercession in our difficult trials and impossible causes.

We’re praying for you.

God bless you!

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 Sunday, January 12th — that’s just a few days away.

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! You can share your prayer intentions below.

The Next Novena!

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

This was the very first novena we ever prayed through Pray More Novenas — and that was nine years ago. At the time, we didn’t have very many people subscribed to pray with us… And now, there are more than 500,000 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 Monday, December 16th!

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

The Novena That Inspired This Website!

Immaculate Conception Novena

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

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

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

So, my simple request inspired him to create PrayMoreNovenas.com to help people remember to…

…well… 

Pray More Novenas! 

Since then more than 500,000 have joined in praying together!

So, please join us in praying the Immaculate Conception Novena starting next Saturday, November 30th!

You can sign up to join us in prayer here, and you can share your prayer intentions below.

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

The Next Novena: Who is Your King?

We are very excited to announce the next novena that starts on November 15th!

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

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!

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

God bless you!
