Day 5 - Saint Monica Novena Prayers:

Today let's pray for all those who have fallen away from the Church. St. Monica's son St. Augustine was away for many years and she had such a strong devotion to Christ that she persevered in hope that her son would one day return to God.
Her faithfulness was rewarded after many years. Let's pray for those in our lives who have fallen away!
Here are the prayers for today:
Dear Saint Monica, you were once the mournful mother of a prodigal son. Your faithfulness to prayer brought you and your son so close to God that you are now with him in eternity. By your intercession and God's grace, your son St. Augustine became a great and venerable Saint of the Church. Please take my request to God with the same fervor and persistence with which you prayed for your own son.
(Mention your intentions here)
With your needs, worries and anxieties, you threw yourself on the mercy and providence of God. Through sorrow and pain, you constantly devoted yourself to God. Pray for me that I might join you in such a deep faith in God's goodness and mercy.
Above all, dear Saint Monica, pray for me that I may, like your son, turn from my sin and become a great saint for the glory of God.
