Novena to the
Thirteen Blessed Souls
(Jesus and the Twelve Apostles)

(Please Note - The repeat of the first line is not a mistake it is supposed to be read twice.)

Oh my thirteen Blessed souls so wise and understanding, I ask you for
the Love of God that my request be answered.

Oh my thirteen Blessed souls so wise and understanding, I ask you for
the Love of God that my request be answered.  Of you I ask for the sake
of the blood that Jesus shed that my request be answered.

My Lord Jesus Christ that your protection wrap me with your arms. Guard
me with your eyes.

O God of kindness you have been my defender in life and death. I ask
that you free me from the difficulties that torment me. My thirteen
blessed souls so wise and understanding having received the grace I seek
from you (state request) I will be devoted to you.


Say Thirteen Our Father's and Thirteen Hail Mary's for Thirteen
consecutive days.   Publish this prayer (share it with a friend) and
give a Mass of Thanksgiving.

This is a testimony as to the strength of this novena:

At the time,[of finding this novena] I had been trying to find a job for months and had been saying prayers and novenas regularly repeating many of them.  While I had  faith that God would hear and answer my prayers it was difficult to keep from worrying.  I knew one more Novena certainly could not hurt so I began the prayer.   On the fifth day I faxed my Resume' to a company, interviewed on the tenth and accepted the job on the thirteenth and final day of the Novena.  This is a wonderful Novena and I hope you will publish it on your Novena page.

I just wanted you to know I found your "novena" by accident. I said it for 13 days looking for a job.  On the 13th day (a Saturday of all things) I got a call for an interview.  I've gone on the interview.  While I was there, another position became
available.  That's the position I really want.  Please pray for me too!   Thank you for publishing this novena.
I've prayed many, but had never heard this one...thanks
Update:
I've been saying the 13 Blessed Souls Novena since July.  I did not give up -- I got the job I've been praying for (October 29th)!!!
Another testimony as to the strength of this novena:
I've been unemployed for nine months and had very few interviews during that
time.  On the last day of reciting the Novena, I had a phone interview with a hiring manager for an extremely exciting opportunity with a great company.  At the end of our conversation, he indicated that I appear to be a great fit for the role and would like me to meet with other members of his team.  During my phone interview, I received a voicemail from another company wanting to speak to me about a job as well.

I am floored at the power of this prayer.  I will continue to pray it and will let you know what happens.

I have requested in this powerful Novena that I do not lose my job even after my boss retires and his replacement takes over.  I was looking for another job then and was fortunate to find one.  I again requested that I get this job.  Though I am not accepted yet, I am in the process and awaiting final interview schedule.

I left a good job due to some stressful situations I was in. The hours were perfect for me and my family and I struggled on what to do and due to health reasons decided to leave. I had been very upset for some time about it and often pray for giudence. One day  I came upon this novena and the testimonies of all who have received such graces from it and decided to pray it. As I finished the prayers on the first day the phone rang for me to go on an interview for a really nice opportunity I came across. I went for the interview.  I have sinced finished the Novena and am in the process of getting this new wonderful job. I am in awe of the power of this novena and hope others have faith in its power.

I have been looking for jobs since Oct 2007, I had lots of interviews but I didnít have any response from any employers, on the 6th of March 2008 I came across this novena and the testimonies, in the beginning I didnít believe in this prayer, however I decided to pray.
On the fifth day I received a call for a nice job opportunities then on the tenth day I have been offered this job, then on the thirteen day of my prayers I have started working for a very large International company (SIEMENS).
Now I truly believe in this powerful prayer and I will recommend this to anybody.

I said this Novena for my daughter who had moved to Los Angeles on her own following college graduation in Iowa.  She went there with no job, some left-over college money, one friend to move in with for a couple of weeks and her life long dream to be an actress.

Needless to say, not having a job was going to eat through her college money and the friend was adding to her anxiety over the move and her dream.  I found this Novena and wrote to her online one evening and told her not to worry any longer.  Her sister and I were going to say this for her every night.

After the 13 days of prayer another thirteen days went by before she was hired at not one but two retail jobs to pay her rent.  Thirteen days after that she was called for her first professional acting job on a long running tv show.  About 13 days following that job she was called in for another acting job on a Steven Speilberg production.  I've always had faith, but I want others to know that prayer is the answer along with self-motivation and belief.

I recommend this prayer often to those in a similar situation.

Thank you for posting this novena.  After moving to NYC as a traveling nurse from KY and committing to live here with my daughter for 13 weeks, I lost my job after the first
week.  I was desperate, and needed to find another one right away. I have a very narrow specialty and no company could accommodate me.  I went online and found this
this novena, prayed it on a Friday, and the following Monday I had a job in my specialty, with a shorter commute, working with much kinder people.
This is my testimony, thanks be to God for answering my prayers and being faithful, even when I lose heart, even when I am not.  All He asked of those He encountered
was that they believe. I am so grateful.

I had been home for a few months and I was getting desperate to find a job, as money was now non-existent. I sent out my resume to a lot of companies and went on a lot of interviews, but to no avail! I stumbled upon this prayer while searching for a ďprayer to get a jobĒ online. I decided to try it out as prayers canít ever make things worse. I started on May 11, 2008, praying for a job.  On the 13th day (May 23,2008), I received the first call for an interview at a reputable company. The interview was held on May 28, 2008. They hired me on the spot! I currently work for them. I believe it was the power of this novena that helped me get here. Thank you for this. Thank you lord.

I would like to write a testimony for the Thirteen Blessed souls novena.  I found the novena on your site when I was looking for employment novenas and prayers.  This is such a powerful novena and like many others I can attest to it.  While saying it, it allows you to reflect on your life and how we are truly blessed.  I said the novena three consecutive times with the last time getting the job on the 10th day of the novena.  I would highly recommend this novena because it has taken my faith to another level.  Thank you for posting this wonderful novena and God Bless!!

This comes to say Thank You for posting this Novena.  After I had said it for 7 days my husband got a voluntary position.  I know this is not paid, but it gave him a bit of experience that he needs.  I finished the Novena on the 16th and on the 17th evening he came home saying that the company he is volunteering with offered him a one month job at a warehouse.  Well this is something that he has never done before, but as you can see one thing is leading to another.....  I would recommend this Novena to other people in a similar situation.  I already wrote to a friend about it this morning as he is giving up his job to go back to be with his wife and daughter.
