    Saint Monica I would like to ask your intercession to pray for my husband joseph for his spiritual, emotional and physical healing. Please pray for his conversion that God will remove his anger, pride and hatred in his heart. He is been suffering from back pain, neck pain and headache these days and has been praying for his healing but I believe only God can heal him completely but he needs to be healed spiritually first because he has short patience, temper and always complaining. I love him so much and I want to see him to be pain free and stop complaining about everything. It seems impossible for me to change him but I believe nothing is impossible to our God so I'm lifting it to Him. Lord please help me husband to have faith in you, convert him Lord for your glory. Thank you Lord and St. Monica.

    Dear Saint Monica, Please pray for my husband and I. I have been impatient with him lately and we have been arguing, becoming very distant from each other. Our arguing is upsetting our young daughter and I would like for my entire family to be happy. Thank you and Amen.

    Dear St Monica, please pray for the restoration of my marriage. My husband has recently moved out of our marital home, and we are drifting further and further apart. He might be in a midlife crisis, as he isn't very rational about why he is doing this terrible thing to me and our children. He is in a dark, empty place emotionally - please pray that he comes out of this state soon, recovers his feelings of love for me, and return home as soon as possible. Amen.

    St. Monica,
    I pray to you because I, as you, am burdened by the state of my children's spirituality.
    I ask you intersession and all those who will pray with my for my children's return to
    the church in it's fullness. I pray that they will not continue to be blinded by the culture of this
    day and ask for their protection.

    Dear St. Monica,
    I would like to ask you to pray for my family and myself. We've been going through a breakdown stage for the past month, and we can't even make it two days without a major argument breaking out. I turned to you because you are the patron saint of abuse victims and I have been abused since I was just 3 months old; Physically and Emotionally. I am 16 years old now and have cut off all abusive ties, which has resulted in my new abuse free life for almost one year. I am getting baptized and receiving first communion on January 8th of 2012. I pray that the holy trinity and your spirit may be present at my baptism so that I can be reborn with my father and patron saint present. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

    Dear Saint Monica,
    I to have a son who I love very much. He is a good son but is going through a difficult time now. He is in the Air Force and got sick and now he faces the indecision of being release from the Air Force which is a very sad thing for him and myself. He is young and needs to be able to stay in the Air Force. You are my patron saint and I very much appreciate all of the saints who intercede for myself and my son.

    St. Monica, I found your name flipping through a Prayer Book this morning. I read the prayer and thought I would search more information about you. Mother, please pray for my daughter who is in college. She was brought up in the Catholic faith: baptized, first communion, and confirmation too but she is not active in the church as we wish she would be. Please bring her back to our faith and hope this will help her in her life and decisions making. Pray for her education too and stand by her for her exams. Pray for all of us who need your intercession with our Lord.

    Dear St. Monica,

    Please intercede for me and my three year old daughter. Her middle name is Monica after my mother and you. Accept my gratitude to God for a conversion ofymy own heart toward true and powerful love toward my husband and accept my devout repentance of my sins for all the hurt and anger I have caused him, his family, and my precious child. Please St. Monica intercede for me that my husband also have a conversion of heart and show him the way to accept love and forgiveness and stop our divorce. I beg your aid in standing strong in my love for him and God that we find a way to honor the true nature of family and give our child the gift of one harmonious family.
