Seventh Day of Thanksgiving Novena to St Anne

St. Anne Novena Prayer

Glorious St. Anne, filled with compassion for those who invoke you, with love for those who suffer, heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I knee at your feet and humbly beg you to take my present need under your special protection. Request Vouchsafe to recommend it to your daughter, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and lay it before the throne of Jesus. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace to one day meet God face to face, and with you and Mary and all the angels and saints praising Him through all eternity. Amen.

DAY SEVEN

O Good Saint Anne, so justly called the mother of the infirmed. The cure for those who suffer from disease, look kindly upon the sick for whom I pray. Alleviate their sufferings; cause them to sanctify their sufferings by patience and complete submission to the divine will; finally deign to obtain health for them and with it the firm resolution to honor Jesus, Mary, and yourself by the faithful performance of duties. But, merciful Saint Anne, I ask you above all for the salvation of my soul, rather than bodily health, for I am convinced that this fleeting life is given us solely to assure us a better one. Now, we cannot obtain that better life without the help of God's graces. I earnestly beg them of you for the sick and for myself, especially the petition for which I am making in this novena request. Through the merits of our Lord Jesus Christ, through the intercession of His Immaculate Mother, and through the efficacious and powerful mediation, O glorious Saint Anne, Amen.

Pray 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, and 1 Glory Be....
Pray for us, Saint Anne.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.



Just a daily reminder for those who may not seen the St Anne Chaplet, I wish to give-away for St Anne's feast (26th of July.)

I look forward to seeing Chemai's photos, Anne.
I've really appreciated your posting these Novenas, even in the midst of your trip to Sydney. With each passing day my heart has become more at ease with offering this petition to St Anne...the more we allow her into our life and heart to more we know her presence.
God bless you, Anne!
