A momma's prayer is a powerful prayer! In this episode of Protagonists of Change we explore the prayer of mothers, see the fruit that was bared and learn from their example.

First Darnell shares why his mother's bad storytelling might be a strength in her prayer life.

Then we speak to Jim Coleman, an actor and lead of St. Luke Productions show "Tolton: From Slave to Priest" to learn about his background as an actor and the life of Fr. Augustus Tolton, the first African-American ordained to the priesthood. We learn about the fruits of of Fr. Tolton's life and his legacy in the church today. And guess what, both Jim and Fr. Tolton have strong praying mommas!

Finally we learn about the life of St. Monica, a momma who prayed so hard it led to the conversion of one of the most important Catholic Theologians in the Church, St. Augustine of Hippo!
