Novena to a Saint


Hello, i need your advice, my 11 yr. old daughter approached me last week and said that she does not believe the existence of God because of too many sufferings in the world and yet nothing is happening, why God do not help these things in the world. I have explained to her in as much as i could that even gave her the book of Bible for her age where she read it before and told her to read it again from cover to cover and read it by her heart.

please help me, I wanted to have a Novena for 9 consecutive days just to make her believe again. help me find which Novena of a Saint to pray for such situation.

Thank you so much.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.



Prayers for you and your daughter.
Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be

Novena to Saint Monica

Dear St. Monica,
troubled wife and mother,
many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime.
Yet, you never despaired or lost faith.
With confidence, persistence, and profound faith,
you prayed daily for the conversion
of your beloved husband, Patricius,
and your beloved son, Augustine;
your prayers were answered.
Grant me that same fortitude, patience,
and trust in the Lord.
Intercede for me, dear St. Monica,
that God may favorably hear my plea for

(Mention your intention here.)

and grant me the grace to accept His Will in all things,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Fatima, Amen…
