Dear St. Monica, you were a troubled mother of St. Augustine and wife of your husband Patricius. You encountered many problems and challenges throughout your life but neither did you despair nor lost faith.
You prayed daily with confidence, persistence and profound faith for the conversion of your husband and your son. Therefore I beg you to pray for me to God so that He grants me the same fortitude, patience and trust in Him.
I also beg you, dear St. Monica, to intercede for me to the Almighty Father, for [mention your petition here] and also that I may be granted the grace to accept God’s will in all things.
I pray for all these through Jesus Christ, our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
