Novena To St. Monica # 3 (August 18 – August 27)

[Repeat the following prayer for 9 days in a row.]

Dear Saint Monica,
once the sorrowing mother of a wayward son,
be pleased to present our petition
to the Lord God of heaven and earth.

(Mention your intention here…).

Look down upon our anxieties and needs,
and intercede for us,
as you did so fervently for Augustine, your firstborn.

We have full confidence
that your prayers will gain favorable hearing in heaven.
Mother of a sinner-turned saint;
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.
