  7. 2.5 yrs ago my son removed himself from my life. He refused to allow me any contact with my grandchild. Devastated, I attended a healing Mass and worship time. I was told by one of the prayer partners to turn my son and his family over to God. I was told to ask St Monica to intervene. I participated in a novena to St Monica. I began to prayer a daily rosary and offered my masses for the Holy Spirit to fill their hearts and bring conversion, healing and unity. Last month I called my son to let him know his grandma was actively dying. He came to momma’s side so did his wife and they brought my grandson. They were at my mother’s side as she passed. They attended her funeral Mass and have continued to talk to me. On Saturday they called to invite me to my grandson hockey game. This is a miracle. We are speaking, they allowed my grandson to attend Mass. I believe this change happened with the intercession of St. Monica, my loving Mother Mary and the power of the Holy Spirit. I will continue to pray for their conversion. I am so thankful for this answer to prayer.

Of this I ask through Christ my lord Amen

  9. My intention was for my husband to quit gambling . And I know how much Saint Monica suffered with her husband and son. Thank God my husband decided to not gamble anymore and I just ask God to continue working with him through the intercession of this great Saint .

  11. My son has returned to the church. He was with a church set up by excons. It took two years of the family praying for him and of course St. Monica. Thank you St. Monica and St. Augustine.

  12. One of my three prayer requests has been answered: I received my documents smoothly and on time. I am confident that my other two requests will be granted in due course. Thank you St Monica and St Anne! And thank you Annie and John-Paul for your ministry. God bless you

  13. God is good, this novena had done it for me. I was praying for a job, been out of employment since 2013, two days into this novena I had an interview. Today I was told I will start work next week on Monday. Am so grateful to God and all of you for this miracle!

  14. My eldest son’s relationship with me was most affected when I filed for divorce 6 years ago. Slowly over time I have built bridges with him, and thanks be to God he is coming around. In July, he had a set back, and I couldn’t continue to reach out to him. It had been over a month. His abusive and disrespectful words came at an emotionally delicate time. Finally, we were at his brother’s game and he came up to me and said he wanted to see me. On the feast day of St. Monica, I had dinner with him and three days later he came over to spend time with me before he left for college. I thank God for His Mother’s and St. Monica’s intercession, and for this interaction before he left town. All is well when trusting in the Lord.

  15. I have found some peace of mind that things are slowly improving for my daughter & her family that have been victims of domestic & sexual assaults. The situation is improving slowly. The children now have a lawyer to act on their behalf in court. Positive prays equal positive results.
    Thank you for all the prayers being said for our family. Amen

  16. I feel this Novena helped me with my son. He was having many medical problems and I said this Novena to St. Monica, and he was helped. I am so very grateful and I thank, God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and St Monica for all the help you have given him and pray that it will continue for my son, daughter and other son who has gone to be with God and all my family. thank you very much. P.C. everyone always keep your faith in the Almighty and He will always be there for you.

  17. Please pray that we make the proper decisions to save our business and the jobs our empmloyees and their families depend on. Amen.

    Thank you for answering our prayer. My son got an intership n my husband got a job. Praise the Lord. We pray in Jesus name

  21. So much gratitude to St Monica! I have been asking her to enlighten my son in the choice he was making. Because of her intercession and God’s grace, he has realized he needed to change and has done so but not before helping another human being make a change in her life! I am in awe of the power of prayer!

  22. My college age son attended an ecumenical service on campus at Iowa State Saturday & went with friends to their service Sunday after not attending the last two years of college. Still praying he finds a Catholic church, but it’s a start. My oldest son in Atlanta is seeking a home church the after unknown attendance at Clemson University for five years. AND my 16 year old agreed to attend Mass with us Saturday night after 2 years of refusing to go. Still praying for them & my two older step children who do not attend Mass, plus my 12 year old who does come to Mass with us. We know God wants what is best for them.

    Thank you for praying with me. Let us continue praying for my son, Dennis to find physical and spiritual healing so that he may accept Christ as his personal saviour and abandon alcohol and substance abuse. God bless you.

  25. I was praying for my son and daughter. No improvement in my son’s situation but I prayed for my daughter to not ruin her relationship with the boy she’s dating. she’s strong headed and aggressive and is presently occupying a responsible position leaving her no time for a partner.

  29. I want to give thanks for the many blessings i receive throughout the approximately two and a half years I’ve been praying these novena on line. I prayed everyone of them as I always found them very fasinating.
    Two of many things I have been praying for from the year before throughout last year into this year has finally answered and it a miracle, my daughter Sam who turns 36 April of this year did not have a child, wanted one of her own, she had fibroid for years,was told she had one and she and her partner wasn’t getting along so well, they would have frequent arguments,she got pregnant but was told but was told not to make an alarm until after 3months, somewhere about 4-5 months into pregnancy she learnt there was not one fibroid but two but they placed themselves aside and is not interrupting the baby, the baby is now one of the most gorgeous little angel boy you can ever imagine, his mother did operation in July and they remove five fibroid all different sizes and her relationship with her spouse is much better they are now finally going to church,please continue to help me to pray to keep them there and to complete the task.
    The other is my youngest son Devante that I have been constantly praying for, for the sun of anger and all the dis’s he has now successfully pass his 8 subjects he sits in the CSEC examinations,please continue to help me pray for him to that he’ll receive a conversion soon, get his acts together and return to church, he is 17 on his way to 18. I thank the Lord for looking favourably on me, the blessed mother for intervening in my behalf, the Saints andAngels who enchant around protecting us and Micheal Arch-angel clearing the way, to all of you Gods children who helped to pray for us.
    God bless you all.
    I love you.
