I thought id throw my story in the ring here…
About… 100+ days ago i started my first 54 Day Novena. At the start i was unsure whether id have the motivation, devotion (or whatever else you want to call it) to finish it.
But i needed help, and had belief that it would come through for me.
See at the time we were very concerned about my niece, she had traits indicative of autism (my sisters is a speech and language therapist and was very worried about her lack of development, her lack of interaction and lack of eye contact). She was about 20 months old when i started my novena, with all those worrying signs…
I said the Rosary everyday without fail (although some were after midnight) and the improvement in my niece beggers belief!
I started a second one and am due to finish in a few days time and i intend to carry on!
Just to give you an idea, my niece can now say what she wants, clearly points it out, can say yes and no, says “Mummy and Daddy”, understands what you are saying. My sister, who was previously concerned now says that she has almost no worrying signs, its amazing!
My niece had a wee spell of not eating, didnt want any food at all, her mother was stressed out as she has a newborn at home too, and her husbands mother passed away, so things havent been easy in the house. So i changed my Novena request, asking for help with my nieces eating, and literally about 4 days after the halfway mark my niece started to eat everything, and hasnt stopped!!!
The power of this Novena is remarkable, i cant state that enough. And while it may be difficult at first, because of the effect it has on you personally (aside from your petition) will make you want to say it. I have never been happier and more content than i have been saying these Novenas.
I have had other intentions along side my main one, and these have yet to come through, but i firmly believe that they will, so long as they are Gods will!
Hopefully this helps!
