St. Martha Comments

"Jesus loved Martha and Mary and Lazarus." This unique statement in John's gospel tells us of the special relationship Jesus had with Martha, her sister, and her brother. Apparently Jesus was a frequent guest at Martha's home in Bethany, a small village two miles from Jerusalem. We read of three visits in Luke 10:38-42, John 11:1-53, and John 12:1-9. Many of us find it easy to identify with Martha in the story Luke tells. ... Continue Reading

    I was so lonely and losing hope and I prayed to St. Martha to have God send me the man he wants me to marry and to know without a doubt it is him..well, it is amazing because before the ninth Tuesday I ran into an old family friend and here I am nine months later engaged! He is a man of faith and I am beside myself this novenas works so much in fact I prayed with my younger sister who was giving up on finding an honest, sweet and sincere man when before the ninth Tuesday she started dating her now boyfriend. To all those in need of a miracle St. Martha is nothing short of amazing Through God...and St. Jude, st. Therese, St. Ann, St. Anthony, St. Bernadette, St. Philomema and St. Padre Pio too! Thank you God oh mericful God.

    Saint Martha,

    Thank-you for the positive signs. I still feel fear, a lack of faith and confusion but do have confidence in your mercy and power. St. Martha, I will continue to resort to thy aid and protection and pray that you may comfort my in all my difficulties and pray that my husband may end his adultery and our marriage may be healed, restored and rebuilt. I ask of thee, St. Martha, to help my husband and I overcome all the difficulties in our marriage as thou didst overcome the dragon which thou hadst at thy feet. St. Martha please have mercy. I promise that in recognition of your powerful intercession if my husband and I reconcile and our marriage is restored I will donate money to charity in your name. I also promise that if my husband and I have children together I will make a further donation in your honour. With thanks and hope. Amen.

    I began a nine week novena to Saint Martha earlier this year and the results have now come to fruition. Right from the very first week of prayer, I have felt a very strong connection to Saint Martha and there have been many many signs that she was assisting me. Saint Martha is truly a miracle worker. Thank you Saint Martha for all of your help, guidance, comfort and support.

    Dear St Martha

    I have been praying to you for over 20 years and you have never let me down, I want the world to know about you and what a miraculous saint you are. You have been looking after myself and my family all these years and I would truly like to thank you. I am praying to you at the moment to help my son and also my husband. I feel like I am forever asking you favours but somehow you must be listening. One last favour is to help my poor mum who is not well with Parkinsins, please help her to get better and if that is not possible, please help the pain to go away so she can enjoy what time she has left in this world.

    Thankyou again and I love you St Martha

    Dear Saint Martha. Please help free me and my son from the awful monster upstairs and his friends. He is so dangerous and if only he would change for the good... or something. Although it seems impossible.

    I want to no longer have to fear what he is planning and doing so that I may pray in peace with more devotion and no more absurd worries. Thank you Dear Saint Martha.

    Dear St. Martha, I'm happy to tell you that my mother has gone to her eternal rest about 5 months ago. It was a time of relief to see that she was freed from her earthly strife, to be given her eternal reward. Last night I saw her in a dream looking hale, hearty and healthy, as we knew her for most of her life. Thank you Martha, for giving me the grace and strength to have attended to her needs in her feeble years. I look forward to more favours from you, which is of urgency and utmost importance. Pray to the same Jesus who raised Lazaurs, your brother from the dead to heal Christian Vengadesan Ruiz that he may be sound of mind and body. Free him from the terrible affliction of seizures, speech delays and inappropriate behaviours. I ask this of you on your feast and I sincerely look to you to intercede for me. Grant all that I ask in Jesus name. Amen

    I never knew about Saint Martha. I have been suffering from anxiety, excessive worry which keeps me up at night and I haven't had regular sleeping patterns in months. As I am very spiritual I took it as a calling from God and opened up the bible asking him to reveal to me something, and I was directed to the passage of how Martha was worried and anxious and her sister Mary knew God came first. So now I pray to Martha who was in my situation to heal me. I am also doing an online jesuit retreat and meditating. I can't see how God couldn't see my effort to put Him first in my life. But the anxiety still plagues me, I pray for Martha to pray to the Lord for me.
