Thanksgiving – 6 May 2023

1. Dear Mother Mary,

Thank you for your intercession. I have started a new job in April after being retrenched in February. It is still a contract role till the end of this year, but I’m very grateful for the blessing and for giving me faith, strength and wisdom. Please guide me in my new job and my continuing search for a full-time job. Thank you once again.

Your Loving Daughter.

2. Dear Mother Mary,

After five long years of study, you have guided my sister to complete her final exams in medical school and graduate as a doctor. Please continue to keep her in your prayers as she enters the next chapter of her life.

Your Daughter.

3. Dear Mother of Perpetual Help.

Thank you so much for your kind intercession on my behalf. When I went for a health screening in April, I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Thanks to your intercession to Jesus, my results are now favourable. Thank you for helping me monitor my diet and maintain an effective exercise routine. Please continue to watch over my health and those of my loved ones, too.

Your Grateful Child.

4. Dearest Mother Mary,

I am so grateful to you for your prayers in helping my daughter secure a place at the National University of Singapore in the course of her choice. The struggles she went through last year made me worry about how she would make it through her ‘A’ Levels. Thank you, Mother for showing your kindness to her and supporting her in overcoming the difficulties she faced in times of great stress.

Your Daughter.

5. Dear Mother Mary,

Today is my daughter’s birthday. I thank you for the gift of my daughter. I am so grateful that she is growing up well and is a thoughtful, humble child who tries her best. Thank you for your constant maternal care and love. Please continue to bless her and guide her to walk as a disciple of Christ and protect her from evil always.

Your Loving Daughter.

6. Dearest Mother Mary,

It is with a grateful heart that I write this thanksgiving letter. I had been praying for a family reunion with my sisters for a long time. Even with Covid-19 and travel restrictions, I kept asking your intercession. Six of us finally made the trip to the United States. It was a real blessing as my husband and I are in our 70s and may not be able to travel that far again. Thank you, Jesus and Mother Mary for the safe trip and the wonderful family reunion. I will always treasure this memory.

Your Faithful Daughter.

7. Dearest Mother of Perpetual Help,

What would my life have been like without your guidance over the past 60 years? As a child, I was already drawn to you, turning to you whenever I was down. Throughout my education in the convent, you never left my side. Till today, I always come to you to pray and to give thanks for others as well as for myself. Thank you for seeing me through the many storms in my life. Guide me to be a better Catholic as I enjoy my retirement. I know you will continue to look after every child of yours who comes to you.

Your Ever-Grateful Daughter.
