  1. I want the Holy Spirit to touch me with healing touch to let me walk normal again. I have fractures on my ankle 3 months ago and my bones not healed yet. I want the Holy Spirit be with me and would miraculously let me walk normal again soon. I firmly believe that He will. Hopefully my next X-ray will be normal and my rehabilitation would go smoothly with no problem. I also want Holy Spirit to help me not to worry about anything coz there are times I feel depressed. Be always at my side Holy Spirit and help me not to commit sins. Help me to sleep peacefully at night and I want my appetite back.

    • Hello Araceli

      I see Jesus do a lot of miracle healings. I’m not sure where you live but I believe a Pentecostal Healing Room would be your best bet. If you let me know where you live I can try to find one for you.

      You can also skype Bethel Church, Redding CA – they have a famous healing room in the church and see hundreds of healings each week. They pray over skype each Saturday as well for the sick who can’t get there in person and Jesus works through that too. I think the number is limited to 40 each Saturday so register early if you’re interested. God bless you.

  2. Please send the Holy Spirit upon my husband and I. Open the doors for my husband to be successful in his interview and get the best position at his employment. Please open the doors for me to obtain a new employment with the State. Please heal my children. Open their hearts and minds. Help them to make better choices and Holy Spirit assist them on a daily basis in making their decisions.

  3. Lord Jesus,
    Come into my heart I will make you my Lord and Savior…as you have died for our sins, come with the Holy Spirit to fill my heart with my intentions.
    I pray for peace within my family, my 3 sons, are the most important in my life, there is a disconnect with some and it needs to be restored. Lord Jesus, I come to You with an open heart, not judging any of them but to be at peace and love to understand as to be understood for us all in this divorced family. It is never easy making that choice of dividing the family, however I worked hard on keeping the marriage together. It was unsuccessful now after 11 years my family of sons has been divided so much it breaks my heart. I would give my life for them as You have for me. Have Mercy on us lord, forgive us of our sins, restore the grace, love and peace between my children and I. I so desire the words of Your most highest Jesus Christ, fill me with the Holy Spirit as I desire Your true goodness in my relationships with my sons, the gift in which You have given me to be there Mom…I love them with my whole heart…Hear my prayers Oh Holy Lord, these are the desires of my heart…AMEN

  8. Hi,
    I am so happy to find you JPAnd A, and this novena community. I could very well relate to John-Paul. Thank you both and thanks be to God.
    I volunteered and will be living in a group for Lourdes on June 8, and then, go to Fatima, Compostela, and Barcelona. My husband was opposing it but I asked him to let me go as a 60th birthday gift on November. Few days after, he mentioned ” who would not want to go”, so, despite financial challenges, I bought ticket for my husband to follow me with the rest of the group who will leave on the 11th, but he is very upset and doesn’t want to go because he thinks those are for the rich and retired, and that big money is spent gaining only pictures. Those comments were followed up with blames and so forth. The ticket is not refundable. I ask for prayers that the Holy Spirit touch his heart and mind to understand, join, and go with us in this trip, and that he gets to know God,believe and trust in Him. Thank you all very much.
    God bless you all.
