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…

  2. Dear St. Monica,
    I request and beg you to pray and intercede for my son Brian who is lost to the world in form of love for money, betting, telling lies, lack of interest in studies for his future career,alcohol,smoking.

    He has cut off his relationship with God.This has led to wrong decisions taken by him.

    St. Monica pray for Brian.

  3. please pray for my son Joel Joe 22yrs who gave up drugs few months back is now under alcoho to give up all unhealthy habits and serve God and Jesus Christ.
    God bless all!

  4. Pray that my husband Jorge Armando Fernandez return home and once again we can become a family!

  5. Please pray for my former husband of 35+ years who divorced me 4 yrs ago to pursue his own desires of same sex orientation and my son as well. I pray unceasingly daily since I became aware and am broken hearted. They still frequent church occasionally, but more as an obligatory show and I’m certain they still have remnants of devout faith buried deeply within them. I sense their guilt and anger at who they each have become rather than the men they should’ve been has made them feel desperation and an attitude of “no return .” I love both deeply and ask you to pray to the God in whom I trust to open their hearts and allow Gods healing power fill them and bring them humbly back to a more Godly and righteous way of life following Gods path not theirs. In Jesus name I sincerely pray
