Novenas that get answered!
Poised to lead our families and communities, 9 Days of Prayer programs intend to unleash the power of Catholic novenas in our world today.
The term “novena” comes from the Latin word for “nine”. In the history of Christianity, novenas have been offered traditionally as nine days of prayer prior to a great feast day, or for any special intention.
While we may pray a novena for any cause or intention, 9 Days of Prayer programs invite unlimited participation from people unified in purpose to take the urgent needs in our culture head on bringing about answers and measurable change.
In fact, God Himself through His son Jesus Christ in the New Testament exhorted us to take hold of the promise that prayer will always be answered, if we ask and fervently believe “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24).
That promise is especially true for Catholics today as we galvanize around this mission and methodology to shift by design from a passive voice to a united and active voice.
Join the 9 Days of Prayer movement today and help to usher in a new era where peoples everywhere come once again to treasure everything that is decent, beautiful, and true. In so doing, our efforts together will transmit a cultural heritage where individual humans flourish and – most importantly – get to heaven!
