    St. Monica please pray for our daughter who has been terribly abused - by her father, by her grandfather, and now by her husband. He has broken bones and she has finally found the courage to leave him. Please help her resolve and pray for God to be with her always.

    St. Monica, please pray for me and my Marriage which was broken almost 5 yrs ago now. I pray for my husband whom i have not seen for the last 5 yrs to be converted and see the love of God in starting our Marriage. May the Lord God through His Mercy do His will about our marriage which i feel has been destroyed by the devil for lack of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfullness, gentleness and selfcontrol have given up on. Amen!

    I found saint monica by accident. i have been praying for my ex-boyfriend for many things - to break some addictive personality traits, some road blocks with us, as well as some other areas in his life, mental & possibly from childhood that i think have impeded our relationship. i do see an opening. i also pray for intercession from saint dympha, for myself and for him, along with other prayers. i do feel that these prayers are working for me and i do believe they may be creating an opening for him., whatever your area of need, just keep praying. ask for prayers from others, go to adoration, so many time i want to just give in when i see bad signs, but i just keep praying, please whatever you do, keep praying. God is more powerful than anything! jesus says pray without ceasing. there must be a reason for it.

    St. Monica, give me the grace to pray for your intercession everyday for the intention of my family especially to my daughter Tressa Agie. Please bring her to the right path of life, deliver her from the power of darkness and plant the seeds of the Holy Spirit in her heart. Give me the strength to pray for her unceasingly, just like you did to your son St. Augustine and not to give up on her. St. Monica please hear my prayer.
