Did you know that the conversion of St. Paul was due to the prayer of St. Stephen?
This is something I've found out fairly recently.

This is from Bishop Knecht's commentary on the Scriptures:

"Prayer for sinners. The Church has always held the belief that the conversion of Saul was in answer to the prayer of St. Stephen. Thus St. Augustine writes: “Stephen’s prayer was already granted even while Saul was still raging.” We should, therefore, never despair of the conversion of a sinner, be he never so far removed from God, for the mighty grace of God can change his heart at any moment. Let us then pray for sinners with zeal and with confidence, that God may grant to them the grace of conversion."
