54 days seem daunting to me!!! And have never done it either out of fear of missing a day / getting distracted etc.
Nevertheless, i’ve decided to start it soon.
As for being “answered” , I’ve learned to accept the unanswered ones as " God has decided that it’s not for me".
Once, I was impatiently persistent on this particular novena asking the Lord to give me an opportunity for which I had been vying for. I was literally complaining to Him like “Lord, why aren’t you answering to me? Won’t you give me this small gift? I’m not asking you to give me all the glory of this world. Yadda yadda yadda…” . Then, miraculously, I was offered with that “opportunity” . The outcome? I ended up loathing it. I think it was one of the worst experiences of my life. God wanted to taste it myself. He knew I wasn’t fit for it but I kept throwing tantrums.
I’m sure God will abide by His time to answer you. Just don’t lose your patience!!
