Catholic prayers can often be quite effective in times of trouble, and might be worth trying if they appeal to you. This is a traditional novena to Saint Anne. In the Catholic tradition, she intervenes against poverty and for cabinetmakers; carpenters; childless couples; equestrians; grandmothers; grandparents; homemakers; housewives; miners; mothers; pregnancy; pregnant women; and women in labor. This novena is a series of prayers that is most often done as a prelude to St Anne’s Feast, which is normally celebrated on July 26. For more about St Anne, visit The Powers That Be
Dear St. Ann, though I am but a prodigal child, I appeal to you and place myself under your great motherly care. Please listen to my prayers and grant my requests. See my contrite heart, and show me your unfailing goodness.
Deign to be my advocate and recommend me to God’s infinite mercy. Obtain for me forgiveness of my sins and the strength to begin a new life that will last forever.
Blessed St. Ann, I also beg of you the grace to love, to serve, and to honor your daughter, the most holy Virgin Mary. Please recommend me to her and pray to her for me. She refuses none your requests but welcomes with loving kindness all those for whom you intercede.
Good Jesus, be merciful to the faithful servants of Your grandmother St. Ann.
From the depths of my heart, good St. Ann, I offer you my homage this day and ask you to shelter me under the mantle of your motherly care. You know, good mother, how much I love you, how gladly I serve you, how happy I am to praise you, how eager I am to call on you in time of distress.
Good St. Ann, be pleased to extend your helping hand in all my wants. Listen to my prayers, for I place my trust in your gracious bounty. Make all my thoughts and desires worthy and righteous.
Jesus, I thank You for all the graces which in Your infinite goodness You have lavished upon St. Ann; for having chosen her, among all women, to be Your grandmother on earth and exalted her in heaven with such great and miraculous powers. In the name of her merits, I humbly recommend myself to Your infinite mercy.
Hail, good St. Ann, who first responded to the needs of Mary, Mother of our Savior and Queen of Angels. Hail to you and to your husband St. Joachim, who watched over her infancy, presented her to the Lord in the temple and, according to your promise, consecrated her to the service of God.
Hail St. Ann, good mother! I rejoice in the marvels you continually perform, because they encourage all to seek your intercession.
Good St. Ann, by the great power that God has given you, show yourself my mother, my consoler, my advocate. Reconcile me to the God I have so deeply offended. Console me in my trials; strengthen me in my struggles. Deliver me from danger in my time of need. Help me at the hour of death and open to me the gates of paradise.
Good St. Ann, you offered your pure and holy daughter Mary in the temple with faith, piety and love. By the happiness which then filled your heart, I beg you to present me to your Grandson Jesus. Offered by you, I will be agreeable in His sight.
Kind St. Ann, take me forever under your protection. Deliver me from the temptations which continually assail me. Above all, attend me in my last hour. As I lie on my deathbed, be present with your daughter to console and strengthen me.
Holy Mary and good St. Ann, show yourselves to be mothers indeed by obtaining for me the grace of a good death. When my soul goes forth, lead it to God’s tribunal so that, by your powerful help and intercession, it may obtain a favorable judgment.
Hail, all-powerful Lady. By God’s special favor, grant consolation to those who invoke you. Procure for them the eternal riches of heaven, and like a good mother, success in their temporal affairs as well.
Good St. Ann, obtain my deliverance from the punishment which my sins deserve. Obtain for me success in my temporal affairs; especially see to the salvation of my soul.
St. Ann, by your influence with Mary’s son Jesus, you have won the gift of conversion for many sinners. Will you then abandon me, who have chosen you as my mother? No, St. Ann. Your name alone, which signifies grace, assures me of the help of your prayers, and these prayers will surely procure pardon and mercy from Jesus. You will pray for me now and at the hour of my death.
Good St. Ann, do not allow my soul, a masterpiece of God’s creative power, to be lost forever. Free my heart of pride, vanity, self-love. May I know myself as I really am and learn meekness and simplicity of heart.
God’s great love for me leaves me cold and unresponsive. I must reflect this love through works of mercy and charity toward my neighbor.
In your boundless charity, good St. Ann, help me to merit the glorious crown which is given to those who have fought the good fight against the world, the devil and the flesh. Assist me to preserve purity of heart and body. With Mary and her divine Son, protect me always.
Once again, Good St. Ann, I choose you for my advocate before the throne of God. By the power and grace that God has placed in you, extend to me your helping hand. Renew my mind and my heart.
Dear St. Ann, I have unbounded confidence in your prayers. To your blessed hands I entrust my soul, my body and all my hopes for this world and the next. Direct my actions according to your goodness and wisdom. I place myself under your motherly care.
Receive me, good mother. Cover me with the mantle of your love. Look kindly on me. By your powerful intercession, may I obtain from God grace and mercy. Obtain for me remission for sin and release from the punishment my offenses have deserved. Pray that I may receive grace to lead a devout life on earth and that I may obtain the everlasting reward of heaven.
Hail, St. Ann! I rejoice at your exalted glory. You gave birth to Mary, whose divine Son brought salvation to our lost world by conquering death and restoring life and hope to sinners. Pray to Him who, for love of us, clothed Himself with human flesh in the chaste womb of your daughter.
Glorious St. Ann, with your blessed daughter, deliver me from everything that is displeasing in the sight of God. Pray to your gentle and powerful Grandson that He may cleanse my soul in His precious blood, that He may send His Holy Spirit to enlighten and direct me in all that I do, always obedient to His holy inspirations.
Good mother, keep a watchful eye on me. Help me bear all my crosses. Give me the fullness of your bounty and sustain me with courage.
Good St. Ann, I have reached the end of this novena in your honor. I have asked and ask again. Good mother, let not your kind ear grow weary of my prayers, though I repeat them so often.
Bounteous Lady, implore for me from divine Providence all the help I need through life. May your generous hand bestow on me the material means to satisfy my own needs and to alleviate the plight of the poor.
Good St. Ann, fortify me by the sacraments of the Church at the hour of my death. Admit me into the company of the blessed in the kingdom of heaven, where I may praise and thank the adorable Trinity, your grandson Christ Jesus, your glorious daughter Mary, and yourself, dear St. Ann, through endless ages.
You will need:
- Glass jar
- Wooden Popsicle stick
- Permanent Marker
Put a mixture of one third honey, water, and sugar in a glass jar with a screw top. Take wooden Popsicle stick (or equivalent), write the name of the person who is creating problems through negative thoughts or actions on one side, and the perceived source of the problem (witches, a particular person, etc.) on the other side.
Place stick in the jar and at least once a day, shake the jar vigorously. The person who is having negative thoughts will have an improved ability to relate to those persons or things he didn’t like before. “He’ll have sweet thoughts and won’t know why.”
If this person is someone who is causing you a specific problem, when you shake the jar say:
“Sweet, sweet thoughts of me, you will think, constantly.”
It is said that each time you shake the bottle, the person will think sweet thoughts of you.
Coconut possesses a very special aroma. Not only is it sensuous and evocative…. but it provides long-term spiritual purification. Here is a great idea for a purification ritual using the scent and the energy of the coconut. This spell is most effective if you make the candle yourself.
To make the candle, you will need:
- Candle wax which can be found at any craft store – white or brown are the preferred colors.
- A candle wick – which can also be found at the craft store.
- Something to heat the wax with.
- A good set of instructions (it might come with the wax) – or watch this video on how to make a candle.
- Coconut essential oil – be sure that this is a natural product, not a synthetic chemical substitute.
- A hollowed out half coconut shell – if you cannot get the real thing, you can substitute any suitable container. (Remember, it’ll be holding hot wax and a burning candle.)
Here’s what you’ll do:
Prepare the candle shell before melting the wax. Use any type of container you choose, but a hollowed out half coconut shell is the best.
Melt the wax until it’s liquid. Stir in pure coconut extract. The quantity depends on your desired intensity of fragrance.
Make sure the wick is attached securely to the container by holding it in place until the wax hardens, or by attaching it to a pencil stick laid across the top of the container.
Pour the scented wax into the container. Allow the wax to harden.
NOTE: If you wish, supplement the fragrance with a few drops of ginger, frankincense, or lemon essential oils…this is not required though.
Now that the candle is made and finished, here’s the meditation that goes with it:
Put on some calming music… whatever calms you. It must be peaceful. The room should be dimly lit, and you should sit comfortably in front of your candle.
Light the candle. Close your eyes and visualize the purity from the candle going into your nose, and through your whole body…cleansing your spirit. Visualize being filled with a cleansing white light of pure energy and purity. Then very softly say three times… “My spirit is cleansed from this moment on…”
Let the candle burn for 15 minutes while you sit, relax, reflect, and breath deep…

- 2 white candles
- A photo of your lover or friend

Perform this spell at 8 o’clock in the evening. At exactly 8 o’clock light the candles and take a few deep relaxing breaths. Visualize a peaceful scene. Now hold in your hand the picture of your ex lover or friend and repeat this chant:
“With the light of the flame
I’ll light your desire,
When I speak your name
You’ll feel the glow from my fire.
With this spell you will come back to me
So I will it, so mote it be”
Say his or her name slowly 3 times and then put your picture face down on top of his or her picture so that the 2 images are together.
