Dear St. Jude, Helper of the Hopeless. Again I am asking for your intervention. Please help us as we pray for mercy for our son Jon. He is in need of help and protection. Protect him from harmful and sinful behaviors. Help him to surrender himself to Our Lord and to protect him from demonic influence. He is of a good soul. I pray that those in charge see through Our Lord’s merciful eyes, hear through His merciful ears, and have mercy on him. Please don’t let them ever take him away from us. I pray they choose help over punishment. Please heal him in mind, body and spirit. I am forever mindful of all prayers answered..
