Thanksgiving – 31 December 2022

1. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

Thank you for always interceding for me for more than 2 decades. You have answered my prayers again and I am very grateful. My daughter will be signing her employment contract next week. We are very happy and thank you very much for your perpetual help.

Your Grateful Child.

2. Dearest Mother Mary,

My daughter and son-in-law had been trying for a child the past few years. She had a miscarriage back then. We prayed for her to conceive and we asked for your prayers. She is now 10 weeks pregnant. I thank you, Mother Mary, for your intercession. You are always there for us.

Your Loving Daughter.

3. Dearest Mother,

My brother was suffering from stage 3 cancer and they were going to insert a stomach tube to feed him. As they wheeled him into the operating theatre, I couldn’t bear it. I walked aimlessly and saw this Church. So I walked in and saw a service going on. I joined in and heard the thanksgiving letters and also prayed. Later, I heard that the procedure was not successful as his heart almost went into failure. 3 days later after discussions with the doctors, they decided to put the least invasive nasal tube and it was successful. My thanksgiving is for the blessing in disguise. The first procedure was unsuccessful in our eyes, but God had a much better plan for my brother. He is now on the road to recovery and I thank you Mother for this wondrous gift of life and am so grateful that I could come 5 days later with so much peace and gratitude.

Your Grateful Servant.

4. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

In October I was informed by my boss that my role would be made redundant and my employment will end on 30th December. I prayed to you for your intercession and just 3 weeks before my termination date, I found a job to start in January next year. Thank you so much for answering my prayer as I needed a job to support my mum. I am ever grateful to you and your Son, Jesus for all my blessings.

Your Loving Daughter.

5. Dearest Mother, thank you for taking care of my family and me in keeping us happy and healthy. You have blessed me with a fantastic supportive wife and two wonderful sons and daughters-in-law and a grandson & granddaughter. Whilst it has been a journey down life’s highway with its humps and bumps, you were always there to help me and my family. You have been protecting and guiding me quietly from the time that I was a small street urchin struggling for a living by peddling cheap knick-knacks in Chinatown, aided me in my studies, introduced me to a great lady who later became my wife and helped me to become a professional – with a lovely family and good friends. Your Son.

6. Dear Mother,

Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for drawing me closer to your Son, Jesus, through my daily rosary devotion. It has not been easy converting to the Catholic faith at the age of 40. By then, I already had 3 kids with my non-Catholic husband. It has been an uphill task sharing my Catholic faith with my 3 children. However with God’s grace, they were able to come to know Jesus. Unfortunately after 2 years, I had to stop bringing them for Mass in order to keep peace in the marriage. It has been 8 years that I have compromised, catechising my kids at home. A decision that I deeply regret. 9 weeks ago, I started attending the Saturday Novena devotion, praying for your intercession, to bring my children back to attending Mass and for them to renew their relationship with the Lord. At the end of the nine weeks, a strange situation occurred that led to my 11 year-old attending his first Mass in 8 years. I believe that it was only through your intercession that this was possible. Thank you Mother, for your prayers and love for me and my children and for keeping my marriage going against all odds. The spiritual battle is still ongoing, but I trust in God’s love and mercy, as well as your unfailing help and intercession.

Your Loving Daughter.

7. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

On the feast of Immaculate Conception I was at Novena Church and prayed to you for a friend who had constant pain in her foot for quite some time. Praise be to God and your intercession during the special hour, her pain was gone. It was healed and she no longer has any pain. Thank you dear Mother, for answering my prayer.

Your Faithful Daughter.
