I have found that when I have prayed to St. Jude he has never failed to answer my plea. He has answered my prayers where family illnesses were concerned, for help for my children in completing their education successfully, and then for them obtaining jobs in their careers, for help with family and personal problems.
I approach life differently now because, when faced with a serious dilemma, I know that if I pray to St. Jude he will intercede for me to God so that my request will be fulfilled. This faith allows me to spend less time worrying about issues that sometimes seem too daunting.
The only stipulation seems to be that once these requests have been fulfilled publication must be made. Here I am, in print, stating that intercessory prayer does work. St. Jude does not have the power of God or Jesus to grant our prayers but because he is a saint greatly loved by God, God through St. Jude, does answer our prayers.
