    Day 49
    September 2nd - Day 22 Thanksgiving - Joyful Mysteries

    The Joyful Mysteries

    Make the sign of the cross

    1 Hail Mary

    Opening prayer - Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At your feet I humbly kneel to offer you a crown of roses - snow-white buds to remind you of your joys - each bud recalling holy mystery; each ten bound together with my petition for a particular grace.

    O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces and mother of all who
    invoke you. You cannot look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As you receive my gift, so you will receive my thanks; from your bounty you have given me me the help I so earnestly and trustingly sought, even if I do not yet fully comprehend your wisdom.

    I despaired not of what I asked of you, and you have truly shown yourself my Mother.

    1 x Apostles’ Creed, 1 x Our Father, 3 x Hail Mary and 1 x Glory Be.

    First Joyful Mystery – The Annunciation

    Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Annunciation, when the angel Gabriel appeared to you with the tidings that you were to become the Mother of God greeting you with that sublime salutation, “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you!” and you did humbly submit
    yourself to the will of the Father, responding: “Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done unto me according to your word”, I humbly pray:

    1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be

    Then say: I bind these snow-white buds with a petition for the virtue of humility and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.

    Second Joyful Mystery – The Visitation

    Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Visitation, when, upon your visit to your holy cousin Elizabeth she greeted you with the prophetic utterance, “Blessed art you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!” and you answered with that canticle of canticles, the
    Magnificat, I humbly pray:

    1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be

    Then say: I bind these snow-white buds with a petition for the virtue of charity and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.

    Third Joyful Mystery – The Nativity

    Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Nativity of Our Lord, when, your time being completed, you brought forth the Redeemer of the World in a stable at Bethlehem, whereupon choirs of angels filled the Heavens with their exultant song of praise – “Glory to God in
    the highest, and on Earth peace to men of goodwill”, I humbly pray:

    1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be

    Then say: I bind these snow-white buds with a petition for the grace of detachment from the world and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.

    Fourth Joyful Mystery – The Presentation in the Temple

    Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Presentation of Our Lord, when in obedience to the Law of Moses, you presented your son in the Temple, where the holy prophet Simeon, taking the Child in
    his arms, offered thanks to God for allowing him to look upon his Saviour and foretold your suffering by the words, "Your soul also a sword shall pierce," I humbly pray:

    1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be

    Then say: I bind these snow-white buds with a petition for the grace of purity and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.

    Fifth Joyful Mystery – The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple

    Sweet Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple, when after sorrowfully seeking your lost son for three days you discovered Him in the temple speaking with the teachers and upon your request, He obediently returned home with you and Joseph, I humbly pray:

    1 x Our Father, 10 x Hail Marys, 1 x Glory Be

    Then say: I bind these snow-white roses with a petition for the virtue of obedience to the will of God and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet

    Hail, Holy Queen
    Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope! To you do we cry poor banished children of Eve; to you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, you eyes of mercy towards us and after this our
    exile show unto us the blessed fruit of you womb, Jesus; O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

    Concluding Prayers

    Spiritual Communion - My Jesus, really present in the most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist, since I cannot now receive you in the form of bread and wine I ask with a heart full of love and longing that you come spiritually into my soul through the intercession of Your most Holy Mother. Abide with me forever: you in me, and I in you, in time and in eternity, in Mary.

    Sweet Mother Mary, I offer you this Spiritual Communion to bind my
    bouquets in a wreath to place upon your brow in thanksgiving for (specify request here), which you in love have obtained for me, even if I do not yet fully comprehend your wisdom.

    1 Hail Mary

    O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech you, that meditating upon these mysteries of the most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what
    they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

    May the divine assistance remain always with us. Amen

    And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

    Holy Virgin Mary, with your loving Child, your blessing give to us this day (night).

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

    I think what Janie is asking is if a Novena is answered if you must publish it, but by the looks of it, Janie got an answer in the topic that they started.

    To my future spouse:

    I write this letter today, on Saturday the 8th of March.

    I was supposed to be volunteering at the children's museum, but we got rain (which I enjoy immensely but makes it unsafe to travel). I am about to head to a local branch library instead. But before I go anywhere, I need to say one or two more decades for my rosary in partial completion of my 54 day Lenten Novena, which I began 2 Sundays in advance of Ash Wednesday, or Clean Monday, if you are of the Byzantine Catholic rites.....so it seems as if I have been observing the Great Fast (Lent) forever! But I don't mind, as one of my intentions is to find you....wherever you are.

    Enough about me. Tell me about your day.

    Graciously yours,

    Paul

And the most important thing: I have to be in love with him and he has to be in love with me....
    Well I have to say something... I post that in may 2013, I really didn't believe in it. Well I am not jet married, but I have met a guy, well he is my boyfriend, we have been together for 6months, we have already talk about to get married in the future, but that is God's will, not ours.
    The thing is that he is my best friend, he loves God more than me, he is mature(he is the older brother of 5 siblings) he is independent, he is really funny, always making me laugh... all the things that I posted last year. And I had more things in my personal list for example that he had yto be older than me... well God is funny, he is 7 days older than me!!! So I can tell you that God knows what is good for you, and He will guve it to yu when He thinks is the right moment.
    One advice: having boyfriend or girlfriend or spouse does noy mean anything if you don't let God to be in the middle of both of you...
    Having boyfriend does not mean you are going to be happier. No, but you have one person in whom you can share your problems and open all your life to him(or her)
    Have a good day!!

    We have come to he end of our 31 days, thank you for joining me in praying for our future spouse. Just because we have finished this challenge does not mean we stop. Fin has posted the prayer for the St Valentine novena which begins on February 5th and she has reached out inquiring about interest in a prayer bouquet/chain, please indicate any interest.

    Feel free to post prayer intentions for future spouses, gender specific or neutral, as you think of it so that others may pray similar prayers as well.

    Let us make 2014 a year that our future spouses are covered in prayer so that wherever they are their eyes will be turned to God.

    I just joined this group. I'm only a 21 year old college student and I'm going to law school afterwards, but I hope that doesn't interfere.

    How should I go about this?

    Thank you very much.

Perhaps I should start getting into the habit of cooking an actual meal several times a week and keeping my house in a state that would make my future husband happy to come home to!
    I totally relate to this. Not only do I have a bad attitude about keeping my place up now...don't care coupled with depressed because I'm not married & things around here are falling apart because I don't have a helper around...
    I love the idea of creating a home that he will be happy to come home to... this really does have to start immediately,

    he could decide to come over tomorrow! That's what I want... isn't it? so what am I waiting for! Oh boy... God knows I am not ready... maybe that's why he is still not ready!

    Please pray that my depression be lifted and energy & enthusiasm restored! thx

    Just wanted to say that I constantly and consistently prayed for my future spouse all through high school. I wanted to find him so bad and would dream about what he was doing. I am now engaged to the man God has called me to, and I am so looking forward to being his wife once I graduate college. I just wanted to offer some hope to you all who are waiting and praying, that God does hear your prayers. Have faith in His timing and love for you. I really believe that praying for a good and holy man helped me immensely to find my future husband.

    tatah welcome. While it would be great for your girlfriend to convert and you should continue praying for it, you shouldn't "live" your relationship with the hope she would convert. She shouldn't convert for you and your relationship but for her own relationship with God. Therefore you need to love her as she is now and if she converts consider it a bonus not a condition of where you take the relationship. Do evangelize in the opportunities that present themselves but don't let that be the basis of your relationship. I will pray for you and your relationship.
