Saint Monica, once the sorrowing mother of a wayward son. Look down upon our anxieties and needs, and intercede for us, as you did so fervently for Augustine. Obtain for us patience, perseverance, and total trust in God's perfect timing. In His appointed hour, in His merciful way, may He respond to your prayer and ours, which we offer through you.Based on a prayer from :st-monicas-kneeler
Saint Monica speaks to me as a Mom because of her dedication to bringing her spouse and children to God. Through constant prayer and persistence. I hope to emulate her model as a mom trying to bring my children to Christ.
