    Novena to St Raphael Day 3 - 21st September

    Glorious Archangel Saint Raphael,
    great prince of the heavenly court,
    you are illustrious
    for your gifts of wisdom and grace.
    You are a guide of those who journey
    by land or sea or air,
    consoler of the afflicted,
    and refuge of sinners.
    I beg you,
    assist me in all my needs
    and in all the sufferings of this life,
    as once you helped
    the young Tobias on his travels.
    Because you are the medicine of God,
    I humbly pray you to heal the many infirmities
    of my soul and the ills that afflict my body.
    I especially ask of you the favour

    (Make your request here...)

    and the great grace of purity
    to prepare me to be the temple of the Holy Spirit.

    Amen.

    St. Raphael,
    of the glorious seven
    who stand before the throne of Him
    who lives and reigns,
    Angel of health,
    the Lord has filled your hand
    with balm from heaven
    to soothe or cure our pains.
    Heal or cure the victim of disease.

    By the way, trinichiqn, since this is still small I think for now I'll allow everyone to post multiple intentions. So if you have more than one, feel free to post it.

    My Intentions are:

    1. To meet my Future Wife - It is a bit depressing when you are the only young adult who attends Mass every week.

    2. Self Employment - I'm working towards being self employed, but I am not sure how successful I will be.

    Hi lovedance4ever,

    I also saw your post in Family Life. So how do you know? Well for me I prayed about it. I discerned my vocation, and I felt called to marriage. I didn't feel called to religious life (as much as I enjoy attending daily Mass, reading spiritual books, going to Adoration, praying the Rosary and other prayers daily). Yes, I have entertained questions such as, is God calling me to religious life? I asked God to let me know what He WANTS me to do, not what I want.

    I said Lord, if you want be to get married, to be a sister, or to be single, I accept whatever it is.

    Another important thing is the desire. I have a desire to be married, to have a husband and children. I know that people say it's not the deciding factor, and I agree. I tried to desire religious life and singleness, but it's not there.

    I've been trying to get more organized and searched the Net for articles. Most of the time I end up using advice and guidelines from blogs owned my moms. I found myself being interested in the posts, how they schedule the family's activities and chores, and for some, homeschooling plans. And it's so interesting! I could spend a lot of time perusing these blogs, and yes implementing them in my life. I know they say marriage is not a walk in the park, but hey so is single life and religious life. It's not even easy to just live from day to day, is it?

    I just want to do what God wants me to do. I pray for my future husband and future children. Pray for the future generations as early as now; I say no harm in doing it.

    Day 54
    September 7th - Day 24 Thanksgiving - Mysteries of Light

    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 - bright yellow roses to remind you of the public ministry of your son - each rose 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 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.


    1st Mystery of Light - The Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River
    O courageous Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River, when your Son, as an example to all, insisted on being baptised by His cousin John and the sky opened and the Holy Spirit came down to Him like a dove and a voice from Heaven said, "You are my own dear Son in whom I am well pleased", I humbly pray...

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

    Then say: I bind these bright yellow roses with a petition for the virtue of giving a good example and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.


    2nd Mystery of Light - The First Miracle of Jesus
    O courageous Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the First Miracle of Jesus at the Wedding Feast at Cana, when at your urging, your Son performed the first of His many miracles by helping a couple celebrate their marriage, by changing water into wine of such quality that the chief steward upbraided the host by saying, "Usually people serve the best wine first and save the cheaper wine for last," I humbly pray...

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

    Then say: I bind these bright yellow roses with a petition for the virtue of responding to the needs of others and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.


    3rd Mystery of Light – The Proclamation of the Kingdom of God
    O courageous Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Proclamation of the Kingdom of God, when your Son revealed that the reign of God has already begun "within us" and that we are called to conversion and forgiveness, praying "Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven," I humbly pray...

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

    Then say: I bind these bright yellow roses with a petition for the virtue of working for social justice and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.


    4th Mystery of Light – The Transfiguration
    O courageous Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Transfiguration, when your Son revealed His glory to His three disciples, appearing on a mountain with Moses and Elijah, His face shining like the sun and a voice from heaven proclaiming, "This is my beloved Son. Listen to him", I humbly pray...

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

    Then say: I bind these bright yellow roses with a petition for the virtue of listening to the word of God and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet.


    5th Mystery of Light – Th Institution of the Eucharist
    O courageous Mother Mary, meditating on the Mystery of the Institution of the Sacrament of the Eucharist, when on the day before He died your Son celebrated the Passover with His disciples and took bread and gave it to them saying, "Take and eat; this is My body" and when dinner was finished He took a cup of wine and shared it with them saying, "Take and drink; this is My blood, which will be given up for you; do this in memory of Me", I humbly pray...

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

    Then say: I bind these bright yellow roses with a petition for the virtue of helping to build the faith community 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 your 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'm a widow now for about 5 years, I wish to no longer be single, if that is possible and what God wants for me too. I pray for a man who is rich in the fruits of the Spirit. Gentleness, kindness, patience... these are far more valuable in a man than riches of an earthly value. These treasures in his personality can last for eternity, which gold and jewels and all that cannot.

    My Beloved
    where are you
    are you looking
    for me too?

    Lord, mold me into the kind of woman that he wants too!

    Hi everyone,

    On this the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe I am proposing that we start 2012 with a month of the Rosary for our future spouse. You can prayer one decade or a full chaplet daily praying the mystery for the day e.g Glorious - Sunday and Wednesday, Luminous - Thursday, etc. I will post the intention we will be praying for that particular the evening/night before so that everyone should have the intention in time. I will be using intentions along the lines of the ones that I was posting last month, I welcome any and all intention suggestions. I will be posting a reminder after Christmas, I hope everyone is able to join in. I pray that everyone is using this Advent Season as a time of reflection and preparation.
    God Bless

    NOVENA PRAYER - December 2011

    O Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, to your Holy Hearts do I come to beg for the infinite merits and graces that only God can give.

    Jesus, Your Sacred Heart is burning with love for me. I know that you love all of us so much. How often have we hurt You by our sin. How often have I put thorns into Your Holy Heart, by my sin. I am sorry O Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    Mary, your Immaculate Heart, loves each one of us as a child. Your heart too is wounded by the sin of the people. What people do by sin to the Heart of Jesus they do to you too. Your holy heart is so sad because people are indifferent to the love and mercy offered by Jesus.

    With your Immaculate Heart, O Mary, and with Your Sacred Heart, Lord Jesus, I offer your love with this prayer to our Heavenly Father, and through your Holy Hearts humbly request...

    For us to find devout and virtuous spouses. To be prepared when we meet them and be the devout and virtuous husband/wife our future spouses deserve. For our faith to be strengthened.

    Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, I shall never be able to thank you enough for loving me so much. I offer my love in return and hope that your Holy Hearts will find some joy in my poor unworthy heart. AMEN.

    1 Our Father
    1 Hail Mary
    1 Glory Be

    Today I pray that our future spouses will see their own faults and be sympathetic to the faults of others. I pray that they will not look at the splint in their brother's eye without paying attention to the plank in their own eye. Lord the prayer that I pray for our future spouses I also pray for us. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
