    Blessed St. Monica, I ask your prayers for my daughter who is struggling in her life. She has been the victim of a very selfish woman who first professed to care for her, but later showed her true colors and lashed out at my daughter for no good reason. She has hurt her deeply. My daughter also struggles with her faith. I pray that through your intercession, she may come to know the joy that a life following Jesus will bring to her.

    Saint Monica.. I am so greatful to finally know you. Please pray for my son Mike who recently diagnosed with manic depression and anxiety. He is 32 years old and living with me..so many times I feel helpless and sad because he often hibernating
    and angry, he always feel somebody is watching him, he thinks things around him are moving and hears voices. He can't sleep, I don't know what to do, All I can do is often cry. Please help me pray for him, I love my son unconditionally and he need to be healed .Right now he's taking medications and very expensive for me because he doesn't have insurance, I am a single mom whose struggling financially. Sometimes I feel like I'm loosing faith, but when I think of your life how you went through with your son ( St. Augustin ) You have such an extra ordinary
    faith and love for your family especially your son. You are an inspiration to the
    world especially to me. You are an Instrument of God. May your prayer towards my son be fulfilled..for this i pray amen.

    St. Monica we thank you for the intercession you have done when our daughter was in hospital for critical condition. You have sent one priest from your church to pray over for us and baptized our child who was in induced coma. Through your intercession and the intercession of Mother Mary, God and infant Jesus heard our prayers, miracle happened to the amazement to the of the doctors which result to the reversal of her case.
