A novena is nine days of prayer for a special intention, petition, grace or thanksgiving. To make a novena means to persevere in prayer fulfilling our Lord’s teaching to continue praying and never lose confidence in our Lord’s providence.

“Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For whoever asks receives; whoever seeks finds; whoever knocks is admitted.” (Luke 11:9-10)

Saying a novena for a specific request does not mean that your request will be granted. A novena is not magic, nor should they be treated in a superstitious manner. A novena is a prayer in which we petition always for the will of God and for His great glory.
