St. Jude: since I first prayed to you in April 1986, you have been my special and powerful patron. I pray to you virtually every day and carry a St. Jude medal with me. I have been to the national shrine several times and have told many people about you. I need your intercession again. Please pray that my mom‘s health improves and that she recovers well from her illness. And please pray for the well-being and peace of mind of my sister who is caring for her. Please St. Jude help our family. Thank you so much.
