For my beloved dad Ralph, who will be having surgery for a spinal cord tumor, please keep watch over him Dear St. Jude. Please help heal him and assist him in a road to recovery. Help to give him strength when he is weak and hope when he needs it. Thank you for all the blessings you’ve already given us St. Jude. My dad prays to you and the Blessed Mother frequently. We’ve been blessed to be helped many times before. Please continue to help us now and always. May Jesus Christ, the Blessed Mother, St. Jude and all the saints please pray for my dear dad and intercede in this journey with us. Amen
