St. Monica Novena

Saint MonicaSt. Monica is a very powerful intercessor for all those to go to her for help.

She was the mother of St. Augustine who is a Doctor of the Church and a highly revered Saint, philosopher and theologian. St. Monica prayed for her wayward son and pagan husband fervently throughout her life.

After 17 years of prayer, St. Augustine converted and eventually became the great Saint we know him as today.

The novena begins on August 18th.

Saint Monica Novena Prayers

Dear Saint Monica, you were once the mournful mother of a prodigal son. Your faithfulness to prayer brought you and your son so close to God that you are now with him in eternity. By your intercession and God’s grace, your son St. Augustine became a great and venerable Saint of the Church. Please take my request to God with the same fervor and persistence with which you prayed for your own son.

(Mention your intentions here)

With your needs, worries and anxieties, you threw yourself on the mercy and providence of God. Through sorrow and pain, you constantly devoted yourself to God. Pray for me that I might join you in such a deep faith in God’s goodness and mercy.

Above all, dear Saint Monica, pray for me that I may, like your son, turn from my sin and become a great saint for the glory of God.

St. Monica is the Patron Saint of…

Alcoholics
Married women
Mothers
Wives
Difficult Marriages

  16. My sweet Saint Monica,

    Please pray for my husband and Me. Our hearts have been shattered for 3 1/2 years now. Our son left our family and he will not communicate with us. He is married to a very domineering woman. He has given up the entire family, friends, and relatives. We have cried, begged and prayed. We were so close to him. He was so close to God. My husband even went and lived with him while he was in college because he missed us so much. They lived apart but my husband was there for support. He had a 250,000 scholarship and we didn’t want him to lose it. When he graduated he came back to our little hometown. We said he would rather have a less paying job but be with family. Please Saint Monica, help us in this difficult time. I have placed him in the Lords hands. My prayer is that someday he wii return so we can meet his baby of two years. Thank you, thank you.

  29. My parents went through a tumultuous marriage scarred by constant in fighting at times. However, they could show an uncommon loving relationship and be the best of friends. Unfortunately, I discovered too late in their relationship my part in keeping them together and they spent the rest of their lives apart (until my Dad’s death).
    I pray that the negatives of their relationship will not be carried by me throughout life. I want to be the best of their relationship …. glowing with their love, not scarred by their weaknesses. I tend to dwell all too much on the negatives (my mother’s trait) and not on the positives. I need St. Monica’s intercession … and her son’s. Please. Amen.

  30. Asking for prayers for my son to find the strength to stay away from the evil surrounding him and his family. Asking for prayers for my daughter who is a single mother that The Lord opens doors for her and her children that no man can close and close doors for her that no man can open. Asking for prayers for all evil and negative issue stay away from all our family and bring us back to being a close family. Asking for prayers to keep all my grandchildren safe and healthy and God leads them down the right path and guides them to making right decisions. And Thank you Jesus for blessing me and my husband of 42 yrs in so many ways

    Saint Monica please Pray for us

  31. Asking for prayer for my troubled 6 year marriage….that we can find love, respect and happiness again. After the birth of my son we have grown apart.

  32. Please storm heaven with prayers for a good man and family suffering from his alcoholism. I prayed to St Monica and it seemed to immediately set in motion a path of action with his out of control behaviour. I know things have to hit rock bottom before they get better but please send your prayers that he will get help and the family will heal and remain together. PLEASE I BEG YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!

  33. Praying for my son Dubem that GOD in his mercy should make him a calmer and more attentive child. And also to erase the Negative influence he has on his younger siblings.

  34. Please assist me in prayer that my marriage can be saved. He has been verbally abusive for so long and the abuse had led me to anxiety and night terrors and–regrettably–physical violence. I am seeking your help for all of it but help is slow coming and he has no faith in me. He also takes no responsibility for his actions. He continues to threaten divorce and berate me everyday. Many days I want to quit forever, but I can.please help me. Perp.

    • I accepted unacceptable behavior for so long in my marriage and I couldn’t figure out how to change it. I had to accept that I can’t change him or control him. I felt victimized by him for years. Now I know that I was allowing him to treat me unfairly. I had to accept that the only person I can change is myself. God has given me strength. All it took was a “spark” of God’s love to know that I wasn’t alone, and that there was hope. I felt alone for so so long and I was looking for love, safety and security in all the wrong places, by my husband and he wasn’t capable of any of it. God’s love, safety and security is guaranteed. He will never let you down and He is always there for you. I will pray for you and your family.

    • Sorry, but I just had to say more. I wanted to give up for good, and I had a husband and 4 children. I thought that there was no place left to go, no one would help me, there was really no reason for me to be around. I was doomed to a life of depression, despair and no self- worth. It was at that point of hopelessness that the Holy Spirit intervened. I immediately felt hope. The pain and suffering was over. Everyone would know now and I didn’t have to hide it anymore. If I had my own way, I wouldn’t be here, but God’s power surpasses everything. He had His own plan and I was ready to let go and let God. It’s been 4 yrs since that happened. It’s been a long, hard road, but I know I’m not alone. God has me here for a reason. I look at my kids and I have such a good relationship them. My husband is still struggling with addiction, but I’m learning to understand that its his addiction, now mine. Everything happens in God’s time, not mine. It’s important to talk to someone who can help. You can’t do this alone. Once the darkness is expelled from your mind and it sees the light, it not longer has power over you. God Bless You.

  35. Starting novena today, Sept. 22, 2014, with my friend, for those struggling with alcohol in my family, for my marriage, and for my relationship with my mother. Thank you for your prayers. God is good!

  36. Asking for prayers for my only son, that he be more responsible and quit smoking (Marijuana), the drinking and that he will hold a job, and have better respect for women to love them and not abuse them, For his compulsive lying which is getting worst he is 33 and I’m really worried about him, Prayers also for my husbands health, and for my Family for unity and understanding. also asking for prayers for my only daughter that she may allow me to see my grandkids

  37. Saint Monica, my son needs help. Please help him before it is too late. Please help him and help me to have strength and not fall apart.

  39. My friend Katelyn has just gone through a divorce and is so upset. Her dad us also an alcoholic and us already dating, he won’t talk to her either. I’m praying and say I’m her for her, but she’s really struggling. I hope this novena can help.

  40. I am praying that my marriage can be saved. He has been verbally abusive for so long and the abuse had led me to anxiety and night terrors and–regretably–physical violence. I am seeking professional help for all of it but help is slow coming and he has no faith in me. He also takes no responsibility for his actions. He continues to threaten divorce and berate me everyday. Many days I want to take a handful of pills and sleep forever, but we have a young son and a little girl on the way so I can’t do that. I just want this while bad dream to end.

    • Dear slbg,
      Almost 3 years ago I was in a very similar situation as you. It was incredibly painful for me and there were times I just didn’t know how I was going to get to tomorrow. The fact that you are asking for prayers is a sign that you are full of Gods love and have His strength in you! Be strong and true to yourself. Today I can look back and see the love and faith I had to believe that things would get better and they have. I will keep you in my prayers!!

  41. Thank you St. Monica for your intercession that has given me hope and peace for a better relationship with my beautiful children. Thank you!

  44. Hi,
    I really need your prayers for my husband WM. Right after, I posted a prayer on here my husband tried to hack my email account. I was shocked &heartbroken. Anyway, a few days later he says that he wants to go see a doctor, and have us go to marriage counseling. I thought great & praise God! :) Then today, my husband is going on & on about wanting me to sign the title of my car over to him, and there’s no apologies for anything, just blame & condemenation. It’s my fault, it’s his mom’s fault etc. I can’t ask him why are you doing this, and say that I know that this is not like you. My husband is scheming some type of lie or lies behind my back, but what it is, and why I don’t know! I desperately want him to get the care he needs, and for our marriage to be renewed, restored, revitalized & better than it ever was. I saw some of my prayers being answered, and the stronghold of going to Indiana with some neighbors has passed, but he’s still involved with bad people! My husband put a gun & a knife to his head, and the local police refuse to do anything!!!!!!! They said that he was just playing!

  45. I pray for the battles I am having being a good mother. The Lord answered my many prayers and after 7 yrs w/out science only your blessings you gave us a son. I now feel like I have been setting my faith aside some and I am losing control. I need direction to have the knowledge of when to let go, when to hold on, when to scold, when to celebrate and to remember that I must always love. His father is deployed again and it’s now the hardest age yet, but probably one of the most important (6 yrs old). I have no words or I never seem to use the right ones…so rather I show coldness and anger and a loud stern voice; rather than soft and loving. Please Saint Monica go to our Lord so that he may warm my heart, like it once was so that I can learn to put all things aside to give and show my love to my son and husband more than I ever have. I complain, nag, guilt, act OCD about many things that don’t matter and I am setting unacceptable examples and I want to stop, but I can’t seem to. Saint Monica I need your help!

    I also would like to add prayers for my sister and her husband whom I just found out are getting a divorce and my beautiful sweet niece who is torn in the middle.

  46. I am praying thatthrough this novena, St. Monica will assist me in my marriage life , she will pray for persevance, under standing, patencet and tolerance for me and also i will be a good wife to my husband and a caring mother to my children

  47. Pray for my daughter tatyana that she keeps strong and says no to alcohol on a daily bases. That she accepts Jesus Christ as her higher power and over comes her addiction to alcohol. In gods names I give up my child to you Amen

  48. St. Monica, you prayed fervently for your son Augustine’s conversion. I pray St. Monica that you beg for me before God to show my children that Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life”. They have strayed in ways only you know, and in ways that I have cried over. St. Monica, I am struggling to stay strong and faithful, but my heart breaks when I see them blatantly offend God. St. Monica you cried many tears, and my tears don’t seem to ever end. Please offer my tears to Jesus to cleanse their sins and turn them away from all evil. Please, I cry with every fiber of my being for their protection from evil. Please help me to stay strong and protect me from the evil that invades my thoughts. I beseech you to present this before God with the utmost urgency.

  49. Dear St. Monica,

His children need him as well as my husband and I. I have been praying for over 12 yrs and am 77 yrs and tired of dealing with his addictions. He does not keep his word to us about not doing this anymore. Please St Monica we need a miracle. God has been so good to me that I pray that he will be heal very soon.

  62. I pray that Lord fulfills in me the plan God has about me in this foreign land where I live.I pray for peace in family,salvation of souls,and prevention of
    Work place bullying,child safety and overall good health in family and friends.

  63. Dear St Monica,
    I ask for your intercession for my husband, and our family. My husband suffers from bi-polar, clinical depression etc. Anyway, over the past year or so his behavior has become increasingly strange and scary. He was running around barefoot at night handing out Bibles to gang members, ended up at a homeless camp with our dog & had really no idea how/why he was there, falling down, he fell into the dresser during the middle of the night & took 18 stitches to the head. After that he started running away from his doctors appointments. I last saw him about 2 1/2 months ago when I drove him to the doctor & he drove away in our truck with our dog. He took a large amount of money out of savings, an inheritance from my father, that we are using to try to adopt a child & purchase a home. He’s gotten together with some criminal types that have infiltrated our old neighborhood. He has not spoken to any of his real friends, family and has been letting these people charge debts, and go to the casinos. My mother – in – law is becoming so I’ll & so frail. My husband also has heart problems including a heart attack, 3 heart surgeries & congenital heart problems. A few days ago he called & my sister-in-law, who has a medical background, thought he was having a stroke. The police kicked the door in & then said as long as he knows what state he’s in & who the president is; then it doesn’t matter what’s wrong & he could refuse care, but that was not the case when he had his heart attack. On Sunday, he had a gun & some type of knife to his head, and was sending out photos. The police said that was no big deal & they refuse to do anything! I’m so scared for my husband, our dog, my mother-in-law. The police told me that I am to leave him alone & I can’t go to our house! My husband is now planning to go to another state to go live with these evil people he believes are his friends! It’s almost like a cult; they’re isolating him. I have tried legal action to see if I could get help for him, and so far to no avail. I’ve run into every obstacle, and no lawyer wanted to take the case; so I thought maybe God has another plan. He wants to leave any day now. He has always been a person of faith, and saying that he wants our marriage to work, but now he’s supposedly going to another state with these criminals & our dog to go see some new doctors, and he now feels that these doctors will tell him what’s best for us. I am so worried & sad! Please pray that armies of angels watch over my husband and our dog, and that he’ll be lead back to his family & lifelong friends who love & miss him. Please pray that he’ll hear God’s voice & that he’ll have the strength & clarity to break away. Please pray that this evil strong hold is broken; every other family there has divorced!!! Please pray that God will heal my husband from this insidious mental illness!!!! I really believe that God has special work for him to do. I saw him with his heart attack & surgeries, sitting at his bedside in the hospital for 2 weeks straight! Please we need a miracle!!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!

  64. St. Monica please pray for GS to regain his faith and love for Jesus Christ and start living as a practicing Catholic again. Amen.

  65. St. Monica,
