Dear God, beloved Jesus and St. Jude,
I am in a situation that seems hopeless and what I ask for requires a miracle. The man I love is to marry someone else in 20 days (his parents are forcing him to marry another girl who is a family friend’s daughter against his will as they don’t think I’m right for him). He loves me and wants to marry me but neither of our families understand our love. We thought of eloping but don’t want to hurt our families. We have been through many trials and tribulations and fed up of this pain. We turn to you, God, because with you nothing is impossible.
Today is the 5th day of my novena to St. Jude. Please help us be together and get married with our families’ blessings. Please provide us with a speedy assistance as there is not enough time and I shall be forever grateful. Many thanks.
