Dear St. Jude, I’m sorry I’ve been writing to you every minute every day it seems. Please calm my anxious heart. Please continue to help my elderly father as he fights cancer. Please don’t ever let us lose hope that he will be healed. Please have mercy on him. Please have pity on his body. Please allow him to recover soon. Give him back the strength that he lost, his ability to be able to do things, and the health that he lost. Please help him eat again so he can get rid of the TPN. Please continue to give us hope and reasons to be happy. Right now, I am happy because something good happened from his treatments according to his doctor. I am happy with this little bits of good news that his treatment went well. Please continue to heal him. I am also thankful that according to his heart doctor, his heart looks good. Please heal my father. I really don’t know what to do because I know it’s only you who can heal him completely. There will also be another PET scan in the next few months. I fervently pray that the results of his next PET scan will be good news. Please don’t allow this cancer to spread in his body. Only God can help my father be healed. With God’s grace he will be healed and he will recover. Please don’t let us lose hope. I also pray that his brain scan will give us good news. All of these things are so difficult to handle. Please give us strength, sustain our needs, don’t let us lose our hope, and to always calm our hearts that God is in control and will never leave us. Please help us, St. Jude. We are so hopeless, helpless, and scared. Please don’t allow us to be separated from God. Amen.
