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

  15. For the conversion of a man who is very special to me. For a change of heart in his desire to invest in a relationship with God that includes regular practicing of the faith. To grow in his desire to know who God is through investing in that relationship. It would clear up so much in our relationship. Please change his heart and help him to be open to another child. If we got married, I would want to have a child with him, and right now he is extremely firm in his resolve to not have another child.

  16. I came upon my son’s left open facebook account and saw messages mentioning his participation in homo activity. I was shocked and sickened. It is totally against all morals we believe in and his behavior is morally reprehensible. We approached him the next day and he confessed he thinks he is gay. I feel so awful and am grieving the loss of a normal life for him as we believe in chastity before marriage and fidelity after. I want to think he is confused so badly as he’s not altogether certain he is but he’s participated in acts that state otherwise. He is enrolled in a college 6 hrs from home with a full academic scholarship. This is where all this started and I don’t want to send him back. I ask for prayers as I feel like I was hit by a truck and my heart and spirit are broken.

  17. Please help my son, find his way, stay out of trouble and find the right path, turn his life around, please pray for us

  18. I pray for myself as a mother. I pray for my children. I pray to be the parent God wants me to be. I pray for my children to LOVE the Lord and live his will. I pray for my marriage that is without relationship. It is empty and there is no connection. I am the cook, cleaner, disciplinarian, initiator of communication and affection. I am lonely in this marriage. My husband does not pursue me as far as spending time together or companionship. He thinks sex is the way to show affection and attention, that’s not how I am. I’m disappointed.

  19. Dear St. Monica, i have a troubled marriage. My husband left because he said he wanted to live as a free man. I would like to ask you to offer a prayer for me for the restoration and healing of my marriage. St. Monica, pray for me and for all who invoke your aid.

  20. dear St Monica, please help my daughter stay away from her drug choice, it is ruining her body and mind. Dear God enter her heart and let her feel your presence, show her all she needs is you. Keep her evil friends away and I pray they find peace also, in Jesus name.
    AMEN

  21. Praying to St. Monica and all saints that my son will be rid of this disease called “addiction”. Help him and his girlfriend to find a job. They are both starting to lose faith in God and I don’t want that to happen. Please pray for this as I am so blessed to have God and all of the good things in my life.

    • There is a light ahead and this will give you amazing strength one day. God is in control. I’ve been in a similar situation, begging on my knees. But now I can’t imagine my old life. Just trust and wait and He will answer, even if it takes a while as it did for St. Monica. May her perseverance give you love and patience.

    • Leeann, as of the moment focusing on your husband is very draining. I pray that you give importance to yourself first to lift your burdens to the Lord and He will make it easy for you. As the Bible says…we can make our plans but the Lord determines our steps. (Proverbs 16:9)

  24. Dear St. Monica, please pray for my husband who is suffering from bipolar and has used alcohol to self medicate himself. He has lost his way and doesn’t love himself or feel worthy. I pray that this lost sheep will find his way back to the flock and learn the love that Jesus has for us. Please pray for him, give peace and quiet the negative voices so he may hear us calling him back.

  25. Dear St Monica, please interecede for me with my husband, K. He is harming his family with his alcoholism & he will not get help. Instead he chooses to wipe himself out every weekend. I worry about the harm it will do to our children. Please grant me grace, wisdom, courage, peace, perserevnce, patience&trust that your will is the right way. Please help me to accept your will&know what is the right thing to do for my family&2 young children. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can&the wisdom to know the difference.

    • St Monica please intercede with my daughter Sarah and take her away from Justin who is a criminal. This evil is tearing my home apart and she is hurting everyone who loves her. Take this child back to its heavenly home so it will not be a pawn in this evil. Let her see how wrong she is and bring her home to turn her life around, go back to school and begin her life away from lies, destruction, hateful ways and serve God the way I brought her up in her faith to do so I can once again be proud of who i raised. Send Justin back to jail and release his power over her and her actions.
