I was scheduled to travel in two weeks and did not have sufficient money for the trip (read that as no money). It was also around Christmas time, and there was nothing extra for gifts or food. I was led to do a nine day novena to St. Jude ( the unfailing, special one where you say a prayer 9 times for the day). On the day after I completed it I received a letter from work saying that I had not been paid for special services for three months ($3000.00 per month) and would be receiving a lumpsum payment within the next few days. This is not a joke. I could not make this up if I tried. St. Jude is real, God is real. St. Jude’s intercessory prayers are extremely powerful. St. Jude, I thank you for your loving intercession to our great and mighty King. My heart is full of love for my Jesus and this great apostle and saint of his, who is always a tremendous help to those in need.
