Desperate Times Call for the Saint of Desperate Cases

There is perhaps no one among us, particularly at this point in our nation’s history, who is not facing a crisis on some level.  Maybe yours is of a financial nature.  Maybe your home is in foreclosure or you are facing a short sale.  Perhaps your marriage needs healing or you are newly bereaved.  Maybe you lost your job and are unable to find meaningful employment.  Whatever your suffering is on a physical, fiscal, mental, emotional or spiritual level, one thing is certain – your problem appears to be immoveable, impassable, and simply impossible to solve!  Perhaps you even feel like giving up. In other words – you have become desperate!

Whatever challenges you are facing in life– know that there is a powerful Saint of the early Church who eagerly awaits your call for help. Even now, in our present age, he stands ready to robustly assist you in the seemingly impossible problems of life.

I speak of a Saint of which little is known.   A Saint who was ordinary until Christ made him extraordinary.  A Saint mentioned little in the Gospels – but who broke his silence to write a short, powerful letter which speaks to the challenges of our times. A Saint who bore the ultimate witness, dying a martyr’s death with a spirit steeped in courage.

St. Jude, by Anthonis van Dyck

I speak of Saint Jude – the Saint of the impossible!  The inconsolable!  The desperate! A Saint who has never been known to fail! Saint Jude is specifically invoked in despairing situations because his New Testament letter, The Letter of Saint Jude, stresses to us the importance of persevering despite harsh and difficult times.  Therefore, he has been appointed as the Patron Saint of desperate cases.  And I can tell you from experience, he takes his title very seriously!  In our challenging times, would it not be wise to befriend such a faithful ally?

As one of the twelve apostles hand-picked by our Savior, this cousin of Jesus and brother of James has come to my assistance countless times over the years.   One of the most extraordinary instances was when I was down to the wire in having to find a rental home quickly after selling my condo.  Not having any luck in my search – and needing to find a home within two weeks, I was growing more desperate by the hour.  I decided to take it to Saint Jude.  On the advice of a friend, I wrote out a list of everything I was looking for in a home – a fireplace, wood flooring, two car garage, office space, desert landscaping, not to mention, something to fit my budget!  I began my novena, praying to Saint Jude to intercede before the Most Holy Trinity. Throughout my novena, I also continued to thank Saint Jude for his assistance.

Time went on and I kept checking the MLS with no luck.  However, late on the eighth night of the novena, I suddenly felt a strong urge to get up and check the latest MLS listings despite having checked them just a few hours before.  On the top of the MLS list was a home that just posted.  Viewing the photos, I could easily see it was just what I wanted!  I was able to check off each item on my wish list, and noticed the home offered even more than I imagined.  Due to the competitive market, I called my realtor immediately and we were able to file the necessary paperwork the next morning.  I moved in less than a week later!  Saint Jude had come through big time and I am remain eternally grateful!

This was not the first time Saint Jude so deftly answered my prayers.  He again came to my rescue a few months ago when I found myself in the exact same situation. I again created my wish list for my next home and began my novena. Once more, this powerful Saint heard my pleas and answered them in a way that could only have come from above.

As an act of thanksgiving, I promised him I would write an article about his wondrous intercession, encouraging others to trust in his powerful intercession before the Most Holy Trinity.  However, I don’t want to tout Saint Jude as a spiritual candy machine who answers prayers exactly as we want, when we want and how we want.    As with all prayer, you must be willing to accept whatever answer comes, even if it is not exactly what you hoped for or expected.  I know this from experience.  There have been many prayers in my life answered with a resounding, “No!”  Only later did I see the wisdom and providential protection of God in not answering some of my prayers.  So do not despair if you do not receive an immediate answer following your novena.  From our faith, we know God’s timing is perfect.  So keep hope that Saint Jude is indeed working with God in answering your prayers in the best possible way for you!  At the very least, you will experience the necessary peace and strength to carry on knowing that you are not going through your experience alone.  Whatever you do, do not stop praying and do not give up hope!

Therefore, I highly encourage you to bring whatever is weighing heavily on your heart to Saint Jude, ideally through a nine-day novena.  Don’t forget to also thank Saint Jude for what he is doing or has done for you.  Part of my thanks to Saint Jude was writing an article on how he has powerfully assisted me in my own life. It is the very article you are reading now.

Let’s face it – we all need help from time to time and there is no shame in asking for it.  So why not seek help from one of God’s most powerful intercessors who continuously goes before the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for his friends on earth. Won’t you consider making Saint Jude a part of your spiritual family to help you with the impossible?  Give him a chance and experience firsthand the many ways this mighty champion of Christ will work in your life!

Novena to Saint Jude

Saint Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of difficult and desperate cases. Pray for me who am so miserable. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly — (here make your request) — and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout all eternity.

I promise you, O blessed SAINT JUDE, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

Saint Jude, pray for us and for all who honor you and invoke your aid.

(Say the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be to the Father, 3 times.)

    Thank you for a very apt article. God bless

  • Dante

    According to the info at the Shrine of St. Jude in Chicago: Jesus inspired devotion to St. Jude when he directed St. Bridget of
    Sweden to turn to St. Jude with great faith and confidence. In
    accordance with his surname, Thaddeus (which means generous, courageous,
    kind), Our Lord said, “He will show himself most willing to give help.”

  • Fr. Bob

    From my own personal experience, I can verify the contents of the article. St. Jude has come to my rescue several times when things looked just downright hopeless. Thanks, Jesus Lord, for giving us Saint Jude to intercede to you for us!

  • CRS

    Most holy Apostle, SAINT JUDE THADDEUS, faithful servant and friend of
    Jesus, “the name of the traitor, who delivered the beloved Master into
    the hands of many, but the Church honors and invokes you” universally as
    the patron of hopeless cases and things despaired.

    Can you explain the part in quotes. It’s very confusing to say the least.

  • Judy Webber

    St. Jude has been my favorite intercessor for so many needs that I have had throughout my lifetime…and yes, they seemed “impossible” to achieve at the time. From the time I was a little girl, my mother instilled in us how very powerful St. Jude’s intercession was in our times of need. When we lost something, not only did we ask St. Anthony to help us find it, but also St. Jude. Thank you, St. Jude, for all you have done for me and for my family. I am truly grateful to you and to Our Dear Lord!

  • Mario de Guzman

    Thanks for your article. I used to pray for intercession of St, Jude and many of my prayers were answered. For the past several years I forgot to ask his intercessions and now at my present predicament I will start praying the novena of St. Jude. Thanks again.

  • Graeme

    I think the quote refers to the fact that his name is has the same root as the traitor’s name, i.e. “Judas”.

  • Sub tuum

    My version of the prayer is a little different:
    “…the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused thee to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes thee…”

  • Stephen

    You are correct. Jude/Judas was both the name of the apostle of this article and of the apostle seen as the traitor/villain of the New Testament. Due to confusion over these two, devotion to Jude Thaddeus fell away for a long time and perhaps even writings about him that would have filled in our understanding of who he was were lost/destroyed.

  • Rebecca Peerless

    Thanks for the beautiful article. St. Jude came through for me in a big way for my father, twice. Once when he had a heart attack and the surgeons said his heart was so damaged that they did not want to do surgery, that he would die during surgery. I pleaded with them to go ahead with the surgery and so they reluctantly did. Throughout his surgery I prayed to St. Jude. To the surgeon’s utmost astonishment he survived and thrived. The doctors and nurses who took care of him called him a miracle and said they had no explanation for him surviving. Another time while in the hospital I was told my father was in acute renal shut down and would be on dialysis the rest of his life. I once again went to St. Jude. 10 days later the doctors said there was nothing wrong w his kidneys and he has been off dialysis since. My father used to call on St. Jude Children’s hospital before he retired and always sent them a monthly donation. The night of his heart attack there was an envelope w his check to St. Jude on the counter ready to be mailed. I know St. Jude was paying him back for his generosity over the years. My father once again is experiencing health issues and once again I must go to St. Jude for his help. Thanks and love to you St. Jude!!!

  • Suzanne

    I’ve prayed for the intercession of St.Jude, and much to my astonishment (probably shouldn’t be) had an answer in less than 24 hrs. Wow. The desperation of a particular situation changed into de-escalation and the radical reversal of potentially devastating consequences. I am ever-so-grateful, ever-so-relieved! I continue the novena, with a new found sense of hope! Thank you dear God. Thank you blessed St. Jude of Thaddeus. (And many thanks to you, Judy for posting such a lovely article.)

  • Joma

    I have been praying to St. Jude for many years and he has come through, in his own way, many, many times. I have to say though that my devotion to St. Jude has always been personal and I really did not go around telling everyone. However, he best is when my son was about to make his confirmation and his teacher continuously asked him what name he would be taking. For some unexplained reason he did not want to tell anyone, he would become very upset when asked. I prayed to St. Jude to give him direction. Finally, I had to tell him that he only had one day to select a saint he wanted to be named after or the school would not allow him to be confirmed that year. Finally, he came to me and said that he had a saint he choose but it wasn’t a popular saint like the other kids. I said, it was okay if it was a saint he wanted and a saint he wanted be named. To my delight and surprise he said “mom, I wanted to named Jude”. I was in shock. I had never spoken to him about my devotion to St. Jude. I knew then that St. Jude listen to my prayers. I have never stopped praying to him and, in fact, right now I am going through a very bad time with problems with my house. My praying to St. Jude has helped and he has answered me. He will be my friend and companion for life.

    and I encourage others to trust in him. THANK YOU!!!!!!

    St. Jude, thank you for your intercession. Never have you failed me, and through taxing times you continue to amaze me. Words cannot articulate my gratitude for your incessant support.

  • Jen

    May the most sacred heart of Jesus be praised, honored and adored, glorified throughout the world, now and forever. Amen (Found this prayer in a newspaper that was promised publication from somebody named ‘Matt’ 23 years ago) I cut out the prayer and saved it in a bible that was given to me as a child. This prayer and that little piece of paper I saved means the world to me.. It has helped me through horrible situations in my life for the last 23 years! Today I need this prayer and St. Jude for many reasons. I pray for my prayers to be answered from the most honored St. Jude sacred heart of Jesus…

  • Lysg

    Thank you St. Jude for hearing my prayers and for putting hope and peace in my heart. I will forever be thankful for my answered prayers and will always honor you as my greatest patron and saint. Please hear my prayers for a financial blessing as I will greatly help those close to me who are in need of relief.

  • SAR

    St. Jude, please keep me safe from legal problems. Please let honesty prevail. Intercede with your best prayers and intercessions placed lovingly at the feet of Jesus. Amen.

  • Whitney

    St. Jude’s novena has brought me such great comfort since discovering it this year. I just started another one, as I learned my timing wasn’t right the last time I prayed it, but the same cause is still just as dear to my heart. Shortly after finishing it, I surprisingly learned that the person I was/am praying about making amends with was traveling far away for an extended time. I was discouraged by the additional time distancing us even further, but believe my discovery nearly immediately after finishing my novena was God saying, “Not yet.” I sincerely pray that St. Jude hears and answers my continued prayers as his return nears, and that the individual I have been praying about’s heart will finally be filled with the compassion and courage to come around so that we may finally forgive and make peace with one another. God likely felt this time needed to pass – I have become stronger, forgiven him and myself in this time, and he likely needed to forgive me and have some additional time to reflect, too. I have done everything I can and months have already passed, but I trust that through God and the power of St. Jude’s prayers, anything is possible and that someday soon my prayer will be answered in an amazing way, as it comes from a place of humility and hope for reconciliation. Whatever God’s will is with this person and me, I pray that we may at least have a heart healing dialogue someday soon. I think this is honorable and feasible enough, but certainly requires divine intervention that I am ever so grateful to be able to trust :) Thank you for your encouraging story, and thank you St. Jude for your love and many wonders. I am also blessed to be praying another novena with/for the Claretians at the National Shine of St. Jude during their June novena right now. Feeling lots of peace and positivity from that as well, and encourage everyone to view their website to see how to send your intentions to the shrine and pray with/for these wonderful people for all of our causes together.

    Prayer Brings Miracles

    Next to the “Our Father Which Art in Heaven” prayer, this is one of the Best prayers
    I think I have ever read.

    PRAY THIS PRAYER OUT ALOUD, EVEN IF YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE IT!!! DO IT NOW!!!

    IT WILL ONLY TAKE A MINUTE.

    I started not to do this, but as I read it….

    I understood God to say, ‘You need a miracle tomorrow’
    so here goes…Prov. 29:25

    You never know When God is going to bless you!!

    Good things happen when You least expect them to!!!!!!!!

    “Dear Almighty Lord God Jesus Christ, I thank you for this day, for this is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.
    I thank you for my being able to see, and to hear, and to speak, and to feel, and to taste of Your good creation this day and every day.
    I’m blessed because you are such a loving and such
    a forgiving God, and such an understanding and caring God.
    You have done so much for me and yet you keep on blessing me.
    Forgive me this day for everything I have ever done, or ever said or ever thought
    That was not pleasing to you. I say I am so sorry.
    I now repent and ask for your forgiveness.
    Please keep me safe O God From all danger, hurt, and harm.
    Help me to start this day and every day With a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
    Let me make the best of each and every day, To clear my mind so that I can hear from you.
    Please broaden my mind so that I can accept all things according to God’s Will. Let me not whine and whimper
    Over things I have no control over, for all things are working together for my good and God’s Glory.
    And when I’m pushed beyond my limits, give me the best response, a response which says Alleluia, and
    Praise the Lord, and Thanks be unto the Most High God Almighty, I know that when I can’t
    pray, You listen to the prayer of my heart.
    Continue to use me to do your will.
    Continue to bless me so that I may be A blessing to others.
    Keep me strong so that I may help the weak…
    Keep me uplifted so that I may have Words of encouragement for the discouraged.
    I pray for those that are lost and can’t find their way, that they come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, even through this Prayer I am now praying.

    I pray for those that are misjudged
    Misguided, misused, and misunderstood.
    I pray for those who don’t know you intimately.
    I pray for those who will delete this prayer
    without sharing the Love of God with others
    I pray for those that don’t believe.
    But I thank You, that I do believe
    That God changes people and God changes things.
    I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
    For each and every one of the family members
    In their households. I pray for peace, love, and joy
    in their homes; I pray that they are out of debt
    And that all their financial needs are met, and they have more than enough to be a blessing to others.
    I pray for every eye that reads and says this Prayer
    That they come to know that there is no problem, no circumstance, no situation that is greater than God, for God is greater than all, God is greater in all, God is greater through all, and God is greater upon all.
    For God, the Most High God Almighty of all the Universes is truly the Greatest of All.

    I pray for all my enemies, and those who have used me and abused me, and have lifted up their hands and their tongue against me. I now forgive them for all they have done. In Jesus Name, all my enemies are now forgiven, and I pray God forgiveness upon all my enemies, for they do know what they are doing, for I am a Child of God.
    So every battle that I have ever encountered in my life is now in God’s Loving hands, for You, O God fights all my battles for me.
    I pray that these words be believed, received and accepted
    into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every tongue that confesses them
    in name of Jesus Christ, I pray believing, receiving and accepting God’s miracles in my life this
    day and every day, for God’s Divine favor is now my heritage, in Jesus Name. Amen and Amen! It is
    done! O’ Praise The Lord! Alleluia!

    God Bless You!! ! ! !
    Just repeat the phrase below and see how God moves!!

    God I so love you and I need you. I confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, my Lord, my Savior, and my King, and I confess this day and every day that I am highly FAVORED by God and man.
    Please come into my life, Lord Jesus Christ and change my heart now!
    Let’s take this Prayer around the World.
    You will receive a miracle tomorrow.
    Don’t ignore this and God will bless you.
    Know that you are already blessed
    By the person who sent this to you.

    You never know how many people you will bring to the foot of the Cross because of you sending this e-mail out to as many people as possible, and God will say to you ‘Well Done’

    _______________________________
    CONCENTRATE ON THIS:

    “To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did. When God takes something from your grasp, he’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you. Something good will happen to you today, something that you have been waiting for to hear. Please repeat these 30 Words, ” Almighty Jesus Christ, my Everlasting Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses, and please watch over and heal my family in Jesus name, Amen”. His prayer is so powerful. Pass this to other people. A blessing is coming to you in form of a new job, a house, marriage or financial blessings. Do not break or ask questions. This is a test. Does God come first in your life? If so, stop what you’re doing & send it to other people right now……Lets take this Prayer around the world…..And watch what God does for you.

    Don’t stand before God empty handed. Send this out to as many people as possible now, and let this be your ministry unto God who Brings Miracles in your life today and everyday.

St. Jude, this will be the biggest request I will ever make of you and plead from the bottom of my heart for you to intercede and protect me. My faith in you is unconditional and will honor you all the days of my life.

  • desperate

    Oh St . Jude, this is the most desperate prayer I will probably ever beg you for your intercession. St. Jude, I was a stupid young adult so very many years ago and made a very bad decision. I desperately beg you to bring this to Jesus. Please don’t let my lack of education come out on the background check. After all the decades of my employment at my job, please don’t let my family and I lose everything I have worked for because I was a stupid teen. I beg for your help in Jesus’s name.

    Dear St. Jude:
    Thank you for hearing my prayers and in this most hopeless situation involving my son and his addiction, please give me the strenght to do what is necessary no matter how hard and upsetting it is to my son, please give me the strenght to do the right thing without my son hating me forever. I know it is you and Jesus Christ our Saviour that are trying to guide me in the right direction, please help me not to fall into temptation and get my son out of jail again knowing that if I do he will go right back to drugs and possibly hurt himself seeing no way out since he has gotten himself in so much trouble.

    I beg your mercy oh Lord through the powerful intercession of St. Jude. Heal my family situation both physically and emotionally. We are still so very wounded by my husbands passing and now have many overwhelming situations that is destroying our once loving family. My heart is breaking and I am desperate for the return of peace to our lives. I have called on you before with miraculous results. I again implore your help for my family. Blessed be the name of God and his chosen one St . Jude. Amen

    I have prayed to, memorized, and invoked honor to the prayer of my beloved patron saint, Jude since I was a nine year old. He has guided me, lifted me, answered my pleas, and never abandoned my side. Thank you, St. Jude, for answering my request of need. I lost my salary due to hurricane Sandy last year. St. Jude has helped me survive financially in this interim, and answered my prayers to find a permanent salaried position and to change my life for the better. St. Jude, I as always, have faith in you with a fervor, I will invoke your name, honor you as my patron saint, and encourage devotion to you to all.

    Dear St. Jude, I am so grateful that I came across this page, not so long ago while going through my many hardships, I remembered how you used to rescue me back in the day when I had problems, and then I lost touch with you. I began searching for your prayer books and even went online when I found this beautiful article. I honestly believe God led me back to you for He knows just how powerful your intercessions really are. Today I am beginning your Novena, I pray most heartily that you would once again intercede for me and that my prayers be answered. I am praying for financial deliverance, to be able to manage my finances properly; for the new job with a higher salary as my responsibilities have now increased; that if it is the will of God, I may have my partner back, for I now wish to start a family. thank you St. Jude for the answers to my prayers. thank you Lord that I have found him again. in Jesus Name, may God bless everyone out there who is suffering with one thing or the other, that help may come speedily and that we may see His Divine Light that we so desperately seek. AMEN!!!!

  • Andy

    Please pray for me as I am all alone in a new place no friends and my husband is addicted to chatting with woman online. I am desperate in need to pray that St Jude will be able to help my husband over come this problem he has. Amen.

  • Sarah

    I prayed to St Jude to be reconciled with my ex boyfriend. My boyfriend and I had n’t spoken for months and had had a very acrimonious break up. It would have been difficult to imagine us getting back together, yet I prayed the novena and before I had even finished it, my boyfriend and I were communicating again. We are back together again now and taking things slowly, but I really believe in the power of this great saint.

  • lilraven

    My former father in law was at deaths door. I went to the chapel in the hospital and prayed for him. I had said novenas to St Jude in the past but didn’t have one handy so I just asked him for his help. I feeling of comfort came over me and I knew he would pull through. Last year I went through a very difficult court case and again turned to St. Jude and the outcome was favorable to me. So as I go through another case I am asking again for his intercession for a favorable outcome for this one is truly personal and I am truly desperate.

    Dear St. Jude, I ask that you please help me and my family financially today. We’re about to lose our home and have less then 6 days to come up with the money… Bless us and please take the fear from us. Please, Please, Please from the bottom of my heart! Please help us. We have no family besides us and we’re so very scared we can’t breathe. Please just show me that you can hear me and show us a light at the end of this tunnel. Because right now I don’t see one and all I’m seeing is that ending my life is the best because my heart right now is breaking from losing everything my family has worked so hard for.

    So if you actually truly exist St. Jude.. Help my family get a financial windfall today that will cover it all and ease the panic from my family. Just show me that praying to you or god is actually being heard because I feel so alone. Everything around me feels like I’m sinking and we’re never gonna come up from it. I’m in panic mode and I can’t come out of it. It’s like the fear is just suffocating me and I see no future. I see no light at the end of the tunnel. So alone and lost and scared. So please help me and my family.

    Thank You St. Jude for hearing me and for your help. Thank You.

    Prayer Brings Miracles

    Next to the “Our Father Which Art in Heaven” prayer, this is one of the Best prayers
    I think I have ever read.

    PRAY THIS PRAYER OUT ALOUD, EVEN IF YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE IT!!! DO IT NOW!!!

    IT WILL ONLY TAKE A MINUTE.

    I started not to do this, but as I read it….

    I understood God to say, ‘You need a miracle tomorrow’
    so here goes…Prov. 29:25

    You never know When God is going to bless you!!

    Good things happen when You least expect them to!!!!!!!!

    “Dear Almighty Lord God Jesus Christ, I thank you for this day, for
    this is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in
    it.
    I thank you for my being able to see, and to hear, and to speak,
    and to feel, and to taste of Your good creation this day and every day.

    I’m blessed because you are such a loving and such
    a forgiving God, and such an understanding and caring God.
    You have done so much for me and yet you keep on blessing me.
    Forgive me this day for everything I have ever done, or ever said or ever thought
    That was not pleasing to you. I say I am so sorry.
    I now repent and ask for your forgiveness.
    Please keep me safe O God From all danger, hurt, and harm.
    Help me to start this day and every day With a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
    Let me make the best of each and every day, To clear my mind so that I can hear from you.
    Please broaden my mind so that I can accept all things according to God’s Will. Let me not whine and whimper
    Over things I have no control over, for all things are working together for my good and God’s Glory.
    And when I’m pushed beyond my limits, give me the best response, a response which says Alleluia, and
    Praise the Lord, and Thanks be unto the Most High God Almighty, I know that when I can’t
    pray, You listen to the prayer of my heart.
    Continue to use me to do your will.
    Continue to bless me so that I may be A blessing to others.
    Keep me strong so that I may help the weak…
    Keep me uplifted so that I may have Words of encouragement for the discouraged.
    I
    pray for those that are lost and can’t find their way, that they come
    to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, even through this Prayer I am
    now praying.

    I pray for those that are misjudged
    Misguided, misused, and misunderstood.
    I pray for those who don’t know you intimately.
    I pray for those who will delete this prayer
    without sharing the Love of God with others
    I pray for those that don’t believe.
    But I thank You, that I do believe
    That God changes people and God changes things.
    I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
    For each and every one of the family members
    In their households. I pray for peace, love, and joy
    in their homes; I pray that they are out of debt
    And that all their financial needs are met, and they have more than enough to be a blessing to others.
    I pray for every eye that reads and says this Prayer
    That
    they come to know that there is no problem, no circumstance, no
    situation that is greater than God, for God is greater than all, God is
    greater in all, God is greater through all, and God is greater upon all.

    For God, the Most High God Almighty of all the Universes is truly the Greatest of All.

    I pray for all my enemies, and those who have used me and abused me,
    and have lifted up their hands and their tongue against me. I now
    forgive them for all they have done. In Jesus Name, all my enemies are
    now forgiven, and I pray God forgiveness upon all my enemies, for they
    do know what they are doing, for I am a Child of God.
    So every
    battle that I have ever encountered in my life is now in God’s Loving
    hands, for You, O God fights all my battles for me.
    I pray that these words be believed, received and accepted
    into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every tongue that confesses them
    in name of Jesus Christ, I pray believing, receiving and accepting God’s miracles in my life this
    day and every day, for God’s Divine favor is now my heritage, in Jesus Name. Amen and Amen! It is
    done! O’ Praise The Lord! Alleluia!

    God Bless You!! ! ! !
    Just repeat the phrase below and see how God moves!!

    God I so love you and I need you. I confess that Jesus is the Christ,
    the Son of the Living God, my Lord, my Savior, and my King, and I
    confess this day and every day that I am highly FAVORED by God and man.
    Please come into my life, Lord Jesus Christ and change my heart now!
    Let’s take this Prayer around the World.
    You will receive a miracle tomorrow.
    Don’t ignore this and God will bless you.
    Know that you are already blessed
    By the person who sent this to you.

    You never know how many people you will bring to the foot of the
    Cross because of you sending this e-mail out to as many people as
    possible, and God will say to you ‘Well Done’

    _______________________________
    CONCENTRATE ON THIS:

    “To get something you never had, you have to do something you never
    did. When God takes something from your grasp, he’s not punishing you,
    but merely opening your hands to receive something better. The will of
    God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
    Something good will happen to you today, something that you have been
    waiting for to hear. Please repeat these 30 Words, ” Almighty Jesus
    Christ, my Everlasting Father, walk through my house and take away all
    my worries and illnesses, and please watch over and heal my family in
    Jesus name, Amen”. His prayer is so powerful. Pass this to other people.
    A blessing is coming to you in form of a new job, a house, marriage or
    financial blessings. Do not break or ask questions. This is a test. Does
    God come first in your life? If so, stop what you’re doing & send
    it to other people right now……Lets take this Prayer around the
    world…..And watch what God does for you.

    Don’t stand before God empty handed. Send this out to as many people
    as possible now, and let this be your ministry unto God who Brings
    Miracles in your life today and everyday.
