Morning Intercessions

Compassionate God, you strengthened Monica to be a woman of deep faith and persistent prayer. With her we pray: God, in your loving-kindness, hear our prayer.

Strengthen us in virtues of compassion, discipline, humility, and creativity.

     God, in your loving-kindness, hear our prayer.

Advance respect for motherhood, and help mothers to love and nurture their children well.

     God, in your loving-kindness, hear our prayer.

Restore health in those who are ill or recovering from surgery.

     God, in your loving-kindness, hear our prayer.

Our Father . . .

May we rejoice always in the company of St. Monica and all the holy ones who have gone before us in faith. Amen.
