    Am encouraged and inspired by St. Monica. Pray for me not to loose hope but to seek God throughout my life. Pray for me to persevere and face all challenges with hope as you did. Life is quite difficult, but you are my source of hope. Pray for me to secure a job before the end of this year.
    Monica is a role model to many people. Thank God for the life of Monica, though her life was difficult with many challenges, we learn a lesson from her that we should persevere.

    St. Monica, Please intercede for me with Almighty God. Please bring my husband home soon, where he belongs. I love him so and have forgiven him for his transgressions. Please St. Monica, help him see he belongs with me and not the other woman who, I believe, duped him into being with her because of her neediness. St. Monica, help my husband remember all the good times we have shared in our 20 years together. Our life was filled with more joy than sorrow but we both lost sight of that for a whiel. I beg your help St. Monica. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen
