Why should you pray for the Church? Because the Church needs the support, prayers and sacrifices of the faithful in order to be strong.
When you pray a novena for the church, you consecrate your community, your parish, the work of catechists and evangelists, the sick and suffering, the impoverished and your own intentions, all to the merciful hands of our loving God.
What is a novena? Novenas are a nine-day successive prayer asking for the intercession of a saint or praying for a specific intention.
