  10. Saint Monica, I have felt a tie to you since childhood because of your devotion to your wayward son. I wanted children but feared I could not have them. God answered my prayers and now I have twelve of them, all grown. My Catholic husband abused most if not all of them, then left us. As is typical in such situations, they blame the nonoffending parent and excuse the offender even to the point of denying the abuse. The truth is too scary. I have been an activist against child sex trafficking but my newly consecrated bishop is afraid to support me. The traffickers have infiltrated my state government, who have labeled me a criminal to cut off my career. They have dispatched evil spirits to kill me, but they only managed to break my neck. I am now in a nursing home and quite helpless. Please, in the fashion of Mary Undoer of Knots, cut through this amazing mess and restore my health & income.

  11. Dear St. Monica,
    I pray for our son to be healed from drug addiction and alcoholism. That he will submit to treatment. That his health insurance will pay for it. I pray that he will get a better job with Christians. That he will see the nurse practioner and be faithful and humble about taking his medicine for mental health. I pray for his marriage. I pray for good counselors and that they will continue to go. I pray they continue to attend Mass and that my daughter in law will follow through with RCIA program and become baptized, receive her first communion, receive confirmation, and have their marriage blessed. I pray that they will attend Marriage Encounter and Natural Family Planning. I pray that our family will be healed and stronger because of this. In Jesus name Amen. Jesus, Mary, Joseph, save souls!

  12. My cousin was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma- a cancer of the blood- please be with her and her family including her two children.

  13. Blessed St Monica – help my son in his new job and make his partner have the grace to realise we need to see little Sophie. In the name of the father. Amen.

  14. Dear St. Monica,
    I pray and ask for your intercession for the conversion and healing of my two daughters and my family members that have distanced themselves from God.

  15. I pray that I will be able to find work in accordance with what our Lord wants. To find a home to live in for my daughter make good friends and adjust to a new school system. For mum to find strength and peace in her heart knowing dad will always be with us. Gods guidance for us. Amen

  16. When I sent in my prayers, I accidentally included the names of all the people for whom I am praying. Is there any way to change this?

  17. Dear St. Monica hear my petitions again I pray to the Lord
