    Dear St Monica,
    You know what to is like to pray for a son for a long time with seemingly no answer. I am asking you therefore to intercede for my son Jonathan that he may be renewed spiritually, that he will never abandon his faith and that he will get useful employment soon after all of these months of waiting and trying. Thank you

    I am not married, but that does not stop me from loving my boyfriend or for praying for him. I love him and I wish and I pray that he finds the truth in the Roman Catholic Church. God put him in my life for a reason, and I want the best for my boyfriend. I wish to marry him but I cannot marry him if he does not want his children to receive the sacraments. St.Monica, please help me pray for him. I know I am young and have a whole life to live. But you, more than anyone, know what it is to love. Pray for me also. Amen.

    Thank you, St. Monica, for helping free my husband of his addiction to alcohol, and for helping him see that he shouldn't drink and drive. He has been drinking less and refraining from driving while drinking for moths now.

    I belong to a small christian community of St Monica and so it was my wish to know my patron saint in dept.I have come to learn how St Monica is today as a patron for abused wives, unloved.A family full of hate and all that goes with it. It is my prayer that St Monica be my pillar of strength in my call to parenthood and that of been a good wife through prayer as she constantly did.May she always be my source of strength.

    Thank you.

    Dear St. Monica I come to ask for your help in prayer. Their so many needs in my life that I don't even know where to begin. As a mother like yourself, I find myself praying and struggling daily with my 22 year old son. Please intercede for his deliverance from drugs, laziness, profanity music and a coldness towards conversion. For my father that doesn't allow for my mother to attend mass and for his deep conversion. For my brothers, sister, in laws, nieces, nephews conversions. For the reconversion of my spouse, myself and my 10 year old into preisthood. In Jesus Name I ask for it to be possible according to His holy will Amen.

    Dear and dare St.Monica!,you are a great mother and role model even to the present day parents as how you have nourished your husband and children to embrace Christianity,especially with your son St.Augustine,who raised to the state of a Bishop,a Confessor and a Doctor of our Catholic Church.I pray you for your intersession to rescue the parents, who are in despair on becoming their children 'heathens'.I believe and pray that your patronage will surely bring back the prodigal souls to our Catholic faith.

    St. Monica, through your prayers and intercession, you achieved a change of heart of your dear ones. Please create a new heart in my husband that he will embraced his promised infront of God during our vows..that he'll be a more responsible and loving husband. Also mend the heart of my Inlaws that they'll understand the importance of family and they would stop meddling in our married life. Also Please remember us in your prayers. Thank you St. Monica..Happy Feast Day!!!
