  1. St. Monica I pray to you so that my daughter has custody of her two children. She is a wonderful mother and I pray for her lawyers and judges that they give her what she wants regarding the children. I also pray that my grandchildren are shielded from all harm mentally and emotionally that would be cast on them from their father and his family. Please surround them with your love and protection . Give this family strength and faith.

  2. Please Dear Lord Almighty please have the court rule in favor of my daughter in her custody hearing that she has primary custody of her son and that we are still able to move with no restrictions. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost Amen.

  3. Please pray for my 4 year old daughter. I have never met her. She was abused and I got a call from CPFS that she had been removed from her mother. The mother lied to me for years about me being the father. I went to a placement hearing and submitted a hair follicle drug test and cheek swab for DNA. I passed, I am the father. My daughter has a Hare Krsna name. I want to call her Jordyn. She is being raised as a devotee hare Krsna by her mother and grandmother. They live in Texas and I live in another state. I want her to come live with me so I can raise her catholic. I want her to have a normal healthy and sane life. I want to keep her safe. There aren’t many options the state of Texas is not going to allow a child to be placed with someone the child has never met. The state of Texas plans to reunite jordyn with her mother. I have a daughter and there isn’t much I can do. I will pray and hopefully you will pray for her that she may get to be happy and healthy and may she come to meet the Holy Spirit. Please pray for my daughter.

    In the name of the father the son and the Holy Spirit.

  6. Dear St. Monica ,please bless the friendship of my second son to his fiancee .Thank you St. Monica,pray for us

  7. I am overwhelmed with the goodness of God and the intercession of His saints. I prayed this novena to St Monica for my daughter’s physical healing (she was just diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease) and her emotional healing from an emotionally abusive boyfriend. He caused much damage to her over the last 7 months of their relationship. He pressured her over chastity and often punished her emotionally and verbally when he did not get his way. Although they had been broken up for a year and she had healed quite a bit, he was still finding ways to hurt her. I also asked for healing for myself….I have still had a great deal of anger towards him. I asked that it would not be long before she could find the man that could finish the healing process in her heart. She started a 54 day novena for the intentions of her future husband, and I did not realize it, but the 54th day happened to be the Feast of St. Monica, the day I ended my novena. On that day, she decided to get the courage to introduce herself to a young man that she had noticed last year. Apparently, he had noticed her last year as well. They started talking and began a friendship. They have since talked for hours at a time and getting to know each other , especially in regard to their faith. He has told her that he is attracted to her in every way, and he wants to pursue her in the way she deserves. He said he wants to take things very slowly and told her that when they do decide to actually start dating that he wants to be her protector….that he wants to take charge of keeping them both chaste. They pray together and attend daily mass together. My daughter said she feels as if Christ is right there behind them, at the center of their relationship. I am overwhelmed with the goodness of God for sending this wonderful young man to my daughter. I do not know what their future will bring, but he has certainly shown his authentic manhood and good intentions. I am truly humbled by the blessing.

  8. We experienced another miracle this year again with St. Monica. We have been waiting for months for an answer to the appeal of the birth parents of our foster baby who want custody of her. We decided to pray this novena again this year as St Monica granted us a miracle last year in this custody battle to keep this angel safe. The courts only rule on Wednesdays. On the feast of St Monica the courts ruled against her birth parents and we can begin the adoption process!
    Praise God! Thank you St. Monica! After a two year custody battle this angel will be safe forever.

  9. I prayed for a suitable accommodation during st monica’s novena and just 3 days into it.we got a lovely place.

  12. Dear St. Monica:

    Please pray for my daughter who I dropped off at college that she return to the Catholic Church and faith in God; that she resist temptation; that she stops cursing me out and fighting me; and that she learns to respect herself.

    Also, please help me as a mother to regain a job, home, car, and financial blessings to take care of my family and others. I lost all of this and is in desperate need to reclaim all of this again.
