A prayer to St. Jude for my children

by Melissa (Maryland)

I pray that my 2 youngest children, who were just adopted, are protected for the rest of their lives and are happy and healthy. I pray for my eldest son, who is going through a lot of hardships right now because of his stepmother and father, be returned to me soon. I pray that my son and lost child in heaven and my other 3 children never doubt mine and God’s love for them.

St. Jude, I have tried everything in my power to rescue my eldest or at least give him some relief from the life he is forced to live now. He is only 11 and defenseless against this world and its threats. Save for your blessing and protection. Please, deliver him to me and save our lives. Amen.
