Thanksgiving – 2 Jan 2021

1. Dearest Mother Mary,

I wish to thank you Mother, for helping me this year. With my weak heart, it has been a struggle coping with work. It is with your help and intercession I have managed to do well. Thank you, dear Mother.

Your Catholic Daughter.

2. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for answering my prayer for my brother to tell me the truth so that I could help him settle all his debts. Mother, please continue to intercede on his behalf not to borrow any more money and to be debt free. I thank you for helping me see this through without feeling the pinch and to see the joy and happiness in my brother.

Your Child.

3. Dearest Mother Mary,

My 77-year-old mother went for a brain tumour surgery successfully. But after the surgery, there were seizure complications. 2 months after the surgery, through your prayers, Mother of Perpetual Help, my mother was able to walk and was subsequently discharged from the community hospital. My mother is recovering and attending day care. Thank you, Mother Mary for giving me this confidence to believe in my mum’s recovery.

Your Loving Child.

4. Dearest Mother,

We are writing to thank you for the blessing and news we have just received. 4 weeks ago, we did our scan for our 12-week-old unborn child and the doctor said that there seemed to be some abnormalities in his brain and told us to come back in 4 weeks’ time, and after that to discuss whether we want to keep our baby or terminate the pregnancy. We were devastated and went for a second opinion with another doctor only to get the same piece of advice. Over the last 4 weeks, it was the most anxious and stressful period of our lives, the tears we shed were more than the tears we have shed in our lives. However, you reminded us through the scripture readings and through our family to use this time to pray, reflect and keep faith which is exactly what we did. We prayed day and night to you and our Lord Jesus, to heal and save our child. And indeed, you heard our prayers! 2 weeks later when we collected our blood test reports, we received our first piece of good news; the blood test showed that all the indicators were normal. And just today, we went back for our follow up scan and the doctor said that everything seems normal and that our baby is fine! Mother Mary, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your prayers and our Lord Jesus for working his miracle in our child.

Your Unworthy Son and Daughter.

5. Dearest Mother Mary,

I want to give thanks for blessing me with an amazing job offer which will help me progress in my career. I would also love to thank you for always protecting me and my loved ones. Particularly my Mother who is in Philippines who has thankfully been able to find a good dentist who has helped and heal her toothache issues. Thank you for always answering my prayers and guiding me on the right path.

Your Grateful Daughter.

6. Dearest Mary,

I thank you for being with me, praying and interceding for me through all these years. You are always there for me in my happiest and loneliest moments.

Your Daughter.

7. Dearest Mother Mary,

I would like to thank you for your support amidst a very challenging year. The Covid-19 pandemic resulted in many issues with my original wedding plans. The circuit breaker forced my partner and I to put a halt to the final stages of our planning and we felt the pain of being unable to meet up in the two and a half months leading to our wedding date in June. My partner’s baptism was also indefinitely delayed due to social distancing restrictions. We eventually postponed our wedding due to the uncertainties in outlook of the situation. It was amidst our disappointment that we felt your presence. As we prayed and participated in the online Novenas, we found our situation taking a turn for the better. Social distancing measures were progressively relaxed as the situation improved in Singapore and my wife and I had our Church wedding in August. My wife and I feel extremely blessed and I would like to express my gratitude to your continued intercession for us.

Your Loving Son.

8. Dearest Mother,

Thank you for your loving intercession. Just 2 weeks ago, I petitioned for a dear friend to be reconciled with his father. It is with a grateful heart that I was told his father had agreed to him returning home this week to have dinner with his family. I knew at once when he told me last week that this had been possible through your intercession and the help and blessing of your son Jesus. I told him so that he may see the goodness and mercy of God and all things are possible with God through faith and prayer.

Your Grateful Child.
