Thanksgiving – 15 April 2023

1. Dearest Mother,

Words cannot express my gratitude to you for carrying me through my interviews. Thank you for listening to my petition to find a good private sector job. This has been an introspective process, struggling with what I want and leaving things to God, and ultimately just focusing on the right things to do. Thank you for the reminder that God comes through for the faithful, as long as we do the work too, and the push to be more pious and not doubt for the rest of my life. I pray for guidance and wisdom to conclude the final stage, and to close off my public service career well even as I try to carve time for myself. I also pray for smooth transitioning and easing into the new role.

Your Devoted Child.

2. No words can adequately express my gratitude and thanks to you. I have been visiting Novena Church since I moved near to the Church. I am not yet a Catholic but I have already received your blessing and experienced your Motherly mercy and love. I asked for a job last December as the project ended. And you heard my prayer. I have been offered 3 job interviews at the same time. Now I have a job that I love and am able to provide for my family. Thank you very much for your intercession.

Your Non-Catholic Daughter.

3. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart that you have given me this job so that I can have a steady income and solve part of my financial woes.

Your Loving Daughter.

4. Dear Mother Mary,

You have been amazing to me throughout my life. The many blessings I have received from you and your beloved Son. I am very grateful to you especially during this season of Lent. My husband’s   citizenship has been approved. It is truly a miracle only made possible through your prayers.

Your Thankful Daughter.

5. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to you and our Lord Jesus for granting my daughter-in-law a safe and successful delivery of a healthy baby girl. I know that with your help, everything is possible.

Your Grateful Child.

6. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Saying thank you is not enough considering how much you have done for me. For last two and a half years, I have been praying constantly though not always with the same intensity, for the same thing. Just as I was on the verge of giving up and losing my faith, something prompted me to pray the Novena to you. While I started half-heartedly, while praying it, my heart changed and the prayer that I had been praying for the last 2.5 years was answered. Dearest Mother, I am eternally grateful to you.

Your Loving Child.

7. Dear Mother,

Last week was a bit draining for us due to my husband being unwell. Last Saturday after Mass, the priest blessed us and it’s been 4 days now and he seems to be doing well. In fact, he does not need to be on medication prescribed by the doctor at all. I am glad that the Lord helped us to overcome that phase. Thank you for looking after us. You showed us ways and means to overcome our anxieties.

Your Daughter.

8. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for answering my prayers in overcoming the struggles of work and life. I am very appreciative of you accompanying me on this journey. Whatever the outcome in my new job will be, I know you will guide me through this journey.

Your Son.
