Dear St. Jude: Yesterday was my latest visit to the national shrine. It is such a wonderful place for me to pray. I have been praying to you for 34 years. You have always interceded for me with the Lord. I carry a St. Jude medal with me and pray to you daily. You are my special and powerful patron.

Thank you for all the help you have given me over the years. I ask your help again. Please intercede for me. I am having serious problems with my job. Please pray that these problems are resolved in a positive way.

Also, St. Jude, please pray that the troubles between my family members begin to heal. Finally, please pray that my mom’s health improves.

Thank you St. Jude. I know that I turn to you often and ask for help. But please help me again.
