St. Dwynwen Novena (Prayer to aid lovers/heal broken heart)

Hello everyone, my name is Jack and I am graciously asking for your prayers over my ex-girlfriend and I’s relationship as she recently broke up with me 6 days ago. She broke up with me because she has a ton of stress from school and her responsibilities in her household and she “cannot give me the proper time and effort I deserve”. This breakup came as a huge shock to me as we have both communicated to each other many times throughout our relationship that we are the answers to each other’s prayers and God made us to be with one another. I still believe that she is the one God wants me to be with. My prayer intention is that if it is in God’s will for us to be together, that He please communicate that to her during these next 30 days of No Contact and have her reach out to me so we can grow together. If she is not the one for me, then I ask God to please heal my heart and guide me to my future wife. Either way, I believe that this breakup is a blessing because it will either strengthen our relationship if she is the one for me, or guide me in the right direction towards the woman God wants for me. I have been praying to St. Dwynwen to aid in intercession for my prayer intention and I just thought that yours would help too. Also, I have posted the St. Dwynwen novena in case anyone is in need of her intercession as well. St. Dwynwen is the patron saint of lovers and aids those in heartbreak. Thank you so much, and God bless you all. (my name is Jack and my ex’s name is Marlene in case you pray for us) – I will be praying for all of you as well.

Here is the novena prayer:

Oh Blessed Saint Dwynwen,
you who knew pain and peace,
division and reconciliation.
You have promised to aid lovers
and you watch over those whose hearts have been broken.
As you received three wishes from an Angel,
intercede for me to receive three blessings
to obtain my heart’s desire…

(Mention your need here…)

or if that’s not God’s will,
a speedy healing from my pain.
I ask for your guidance and assistance
that I may find love with the right person
at the right time and in the right way,
and an unshakable faith
in the boundless kindness and wisdom of God.
This I ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.


Saint Dwynwen,

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
