Prayer to St. Monica


These prayers are certainly appropriate for the Feast of St. Monica (May 4th), the Feast of St. Augustine (August 28th), or any day!

Prayer Option 1:

Dear St. Monica, troubled wife and mother, many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime. Yet, you never despaired or lost faith.With confidence, persistence, and profound faith, you prayed daily for the conversion of your beloved husband, Patricius, and your beloved son, Augustine; your prayers were answered. Grant me that same fortitude, patience, and trust in the Lord. Intercede for me, dear St. Monica, that God may favorably hear my plea for (mention request here...) and grant me the grace to accept His Will in all things, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen

Prayer Option 2:

The Sacred Heart of Jesus, comforter of the sorrowful and salvation of them that put their trust in Him, mercifully regarded thy tears, Blessed Monica, sainted mother of Augustine the sinner. His conversion and heroic sanctification were the fruit of thy prayers. From the heights of thy heavenly home, happy mother of thy saintly son, pray for those who wander afar from God, and add thy prayers to those of all mothers who sorrow over the straying souls of their sons or daughters. Pray for us, that following thy example and that of all God's children, we may at length enjoy the eternal vision of our Father in heaven. Amen.

Dear St Monica, my heart is full of anxieties over my son Jordan. I pray that St Monica, you will intercede for me to our Lord Jesus Christ to bring him back to reality and that he need to focus on his studies more ardently. My heart feel stressed when I see him living in a world of fantasy and lost his priority in life. I truly pray that in the Lord's time and mercy, He will be able to help my son to be a more responsible person, so that my stress over him will not effect anyone in the family. I pray that our good Lord will give me the strength to handle all anxieties so that the running of the family affairs will be carried out smoothly and peacefully. With all my sinfulness, I pray that our Lord Jesus will have pity on me and be merciful for all my short comings...I pray all these in Jesus mighty name! Amen

dear St. Monica,
I am sending my prayers to you and your son Augustine for my son Matthew Parsons. Please shower him with your guidance and help him find faith back into his life. He too can be like Augustine. I miss him so much, but do not need his baggage. I pray onto you for your guidance to bring faith back to him. Thank you and God bless,

Just praying for my husband to open his eyes and stop being so angry and disappointed about everything. I pray for him to just surrender to God and try Forgiveness. His cup is always half empty. I am so tired. St. Monica please intercede so we can move on and away from the chains that bind us. I am ready to give up on him. In Jesus name I humbly pray. Please pray for Mercy on us.

Dear Saint Monica my daughter needs intervention for cure of her multiple addictions. We cannot talk to her. She becomes angry and defensive. She needs to set good examples for her daughter. I am afraid her daughter will choose her mother's ways. My grandaughter has said she lives in a devil house. She is only 12. They both need prayers. My daughter had her daughter out of wedlock and there is no father involved in my granddaughter's life. As grandparents there is only so much we can do. I am trying to keep communication open between my granddaughter and myself. At times I feel I am losing her too.

Dear St. Monica, please pray for my husband. He's gotten himself into a very bad situation due to an affair. He's in a downward spiral and needs help finding his way. I pray that he asks for and accepts the Lord's forgiveness. Also, that he gets the mental and spiritual help he needs.
