NOVENA PRAYER TO ST ANNE TO FIND A HUSBAND, FOR PROBLEMS WITH GRANDCHILDREN AND OTHER IMPORTANT MATTERS

02 Jul

Glorious St Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke you, with love for those who suffer, heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I kneel at your feet and humbly beg you to take my present need under your special protection: (here mention your request). Vouchsafe to recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and lay it before the throne of Jesus. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace of one day meeting my God face to face, and with you and Mary and all the saints praising him through all eternity. Amen.

FIRST DAY:

Great St Anne, engrave indelibly on my heart and in my mind the words that have reclaimed and sanctified so many sinners: “What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world if he lose his own soul?” May this be the principal fruit of these prayers by which I will strive to honour you during this novena. At your feet I renew my resolution to invoke you daily, not only for the success of my temporal affairs and to be preserved from sickness and suffering, but above all, that I may be preserved from all sin, that I may succeed in working out my eternal salvation and that I will receive the special grace of (name it). O most powerful St Anne, do not let me lose my soul, but obtain for me the grace of winning my way to heaven, there with you, your blessed spouse and your glorious daughter, to sing the praise of the most holy and adorable Trinity for ever and ever. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

SECOND DAY:

Glorious St Anne, how can you be otherwise than overflowing with tenderness toward sinners like myself, since you are the grandmother of him who shed his blood for them, and the mother of her whom the saints call the advocate of sinners? To you, therefore, I address my prayers with confidence. Vouchsafe to commend me to Jesus and Mary so that, at your request, I may be granted remission of my sins, perseverance, the love of God, charity for all mankind, and the special grace (name it) of which I stand in need at the present time. O most powerful protectress, let me not lose my soul, but obtain for me that through the merits of Jesus Christ and the intercession of Mary, I may have the happiness of seeing them, of loving and praising them with you for all eternity. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

THIRD DAY:

Beloved of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, mother of the Queen of Heaven, take us and all who are dear to us under your special care. Obtain for us the virtues you instilled into the heart of her who was destined to become the Mother of God, and the graces with which you were endowed. Sublime model of Christian womanhood, pray that we may imitate your example in our homes and families, listen to our petitions, and obtain our request (name it). Guardian of the infancy and childhood of the most Blessed Virgin Mary, obtain the graces necessary for all who enter the marriage state, that imitating your virtues they may sanctify their homes and lead the souls entrusted to their care to eternal glory. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

FOURTH DAY:

Glorious Saint, I kneel in confidence at your feet, for you also have tasted the bitterness and sorrow of life. My necessities, the cause of my tears, are (name them). Good St Anne, you who did suffer much during the twenty years that preceded your glorious maternity, I beseech you, by all your sufferings and humiliations, to grant my prayer. I pray you, through your love for your glorious spouse, through your love for your immaculate child, through the joy you did feel at the moment of her happy birth, not to refuse me. Bless me, bless my family and all who are dear to me, so that some day we may all be with you in the glory of heaven, for all eternity. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

FIFTH DAY:

Great Saint, how far I am from resembling you. I so easily give way to impatience and discouragement; and so easily give up praying when God does not at once grant my request. Prayer is the key to all heavenly treasures and I cannot pray, because my weak faith and lack of confidence fail me at the slightest delay of divine mercy. O my powerful protectress, come to my aid, listen to my petition for (name it), make my confidence and fervour, supported by the promises of Jesus Christ, redouble in proportion as the trial to which God in his goodness subjects me is prolonged, that I may obtain like you more than I can venture to ask for. In the future I will remember that I am made for heaven and not for earth; for eternity and not for time; that consequently I must ask, above all, the salvation of my soul which is assured to all who pray properly and who persevere in prayer. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

SIXTH DAY:

Glorious St Anne, mother of the Mother of God, I beg you to obtain through your powerful intercession the pardon of my sins and the assistance I need in my troubles (name it). What can I not hope for if you deign to take me under your protection? The Most High has been pleased to grant the prayers of sinners, whenever you have been charitable enough to be their advocate.
Kneeling at your feet, I beg you to help me in all spiritual and temporal dangers; to guide me in the true path of Christian perfection, and finally to obtain for me the grace of ending my life with the death of the just, so that I may contemplate face to face your beloved Jesus and your daughter Mary in your loving companionship throughout eternity. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

SEVENTH DAY:

O good St Anne, so justly called the mother of the infirm, the cure of all those who suffer from disease, look kindly upon the sick for whom I also want to pray; alleviate their sufferings; cause them to sanctify their sufferings by patience and complete submission to the divine will; finally deign to obtain health for them and with the firm resolution to honour Jesus, Mary and yourself by the faithful performance of duties.
But, merciful St Ann, I ask you above all for the salvation of my soul, rather than perfect bodily health for myself, for I am convinced that this fleeting life is given us solely to assure us a better one. Now, we cannot obtain that better life without the help of God’s graces. I earnestly beg them of you for the sick and for myself, especially the petition for which I am making this novena (name it) through the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ, through the intercession of his Immaculate Mother and through your efficacious and powerful mediation, O glorious St Anne. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

EIGHTH DAY:

Remember, O St Anne, whose name signifies grace and mercy, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help and sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to you, good and kind mother; I take refuge at your feet and, sinful as I am, I venture to appear before you, burdened with the weight of my sins. O holy mother of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, despise not my petition (name it) but hear me and grant my prayer. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

NINTH DAY:

Most holy mother of the Virgin Mary, glorious St Anne, I, a miserable sinner, confiding in your kindness, choose you today as my special advocate. I offer and consecrate my person and all my interests to your care and maternal solicitude. I hope to serve and honour you all my life for the love of your most holy daughter and to do all in my power to spread devotion to you.
O my very good mother and advocate, deign to accept me as your servant, and to adopt me as your child. O glorious St Anne, I beg you, by the passion of my most loving Jesus, the Son of Mary, your most holy daughter, to assist me in all my necessities. Venerable Mother, I beg you to obtain for me the favour I seek in this novena (name it) and the grace of leading a life perfectly conformable in all things to the divine will. I place my soul in your hands and in those of your kind daughter. I confide it to you, above all at the moment when it will be about to separate itself from my body in order that, appearing under your patronage before the Supreme Judge, he may find it worthy of enjoying his divine presence in your holy companionship in heaven. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.

Pray for us, St Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
