St. Monica, patron of Christian parents,
we entrust to your protection,
the children whose names you can read in our hearts.
Pray for them,
that they may be granted strength to combat weakness,
victory over temptation,
guidance to resolve their doubts, and
success in all their undertakings.
May they enjoy good health of mind and body,
see beauty and worth in all created things,
and serve the Lord with firm faith, joyful hope and enduring love.
