Do novenas really work?
In short, novenas work, and we should pray them because they are a valuable form of conversation with God and His saints. They flow from faith, and God always attends to the prayers of His faithful. We may or may not get what we want. But as we pray novenas, we are praising, preparing, waiting and trusting.
Are novenas powerful?
Having the right attitude is key to the use of novenas. Because they’re a powerful means of prayer, we can be tempted to abuse their power. When we pray a novena, we must take on Jesus’ attitude in Gethsemane the night before he died.
