Ok so I know I am revitalizing an old thread, but because I'm short on cash and really can't afford to publish a testimonial to St. Jude, I just want to make sure that his great favor he arranged for me does not go forgotten. I prayed two novenas to St. Jude and both of them gave me the help that I needed, one was financial, and the other was concerning employment.
For my finances I didn't get a bag of money, but I did find a way to make my payments, where I didn't have one before.
But, the most miraculous act that St. Jude facilitated for me through the intercession of Jesus Christ was a couple of months ago when I was in dire straits with my employment. I found my first real job after looking for three years, but all was not well. My new boss didn't like me and was trying to find a way to fire me, it was right around Christmas so I started praying a novena to St. Jude to keep my job at this company and I finished the novena a week before new years eve. As luck would have it I was fired the first week of the new year, after my boss used me to complete a catalog working me long hours, 2 consecutive weeks at 80 hours, and then told me she wanted someone with more experience.
I didn't complain, I accepted God's will, but I have to say that I felt a little let down by St. Jude, but I just figured that it wasn't in God's plans that I be hired at that time. 3 weeks later I saw an add for a tech company for a marketing position, fyi I always wanted to work at a tech company :rolleyes:. I sent in my resume in a coffee cup, the office loved it, two days later I was hired and I received a 3% raise! :D
Thank you God and thank you St. Jude! :thumbsup: I heard he is known for arranging special bonuses to those who put their trust in God's mercy and his intercession.
The intercession of St. Jude is real, things might not always happen the way we want it, but he definitely goes to bat for us with Jesus Christ. I also want to add a small note to this testimonial, GOD IS NOT AN ATM! :mad: I sincerely doubt, that he would grant me a selfish, stupid, materialistic intention like owning a new Porsche or an oceanfront home. Also God, will not grant a request that will lead someone to damnation, so perhaps winning a million dollars would corrupt my soul and stray me from God. But it's not wrong to ask St. Jude to intervene to God for something we need, not want i.e. getting out of financial hardship, overcoming sin, finding a spouse, or seeking a way to move closer to our families.
If you're interested in saying this novena, you can google St. Jude novena, I like the EWTN link.
Right now Im asking St. Jude to intervene for me to find me a spouse, and help me move my career forward so that I may support a family. I look forward to seeing what he can do for me, I'm a patient man for God's will.
Thank You St. Jude!
I'm in a low couple of years. I'm a Land Surveyor. Self employed at that. Can't hardly give my self away. 2 years ago my wife was diagnosed with cancer. The year before that my mother and long time hunting buddy died. I stayed with my wife treatment after treatment. I started a Novena after Novena to St. Jude. I have one going on now. My wife is cured of cancer. That was the first most prayer I needed answered. I've gotten just enough work to barely make ends meet. But ends have been met. Just the past 2 months work has started to move in from odd places. I started mowing grass with a survey client I did a job for. An old commercial client had 3 projects for me. Good projects, but payment can be slow. Out of the blue I called an old friend asking what he was doing, and where could I find some work. He gave me a name. I called and was well received. They need my badly. My cash flow is very bad. I need enough for the simple things like gas, lunch, and dinner. Hoping I can make a draw this Friday, and have enough money to make it to then. Praying to St. Jude, Mary, and Jesus tonight, My cat comes up and drops an envelope at my feet. It's one of those money envelopes you get for Christmas or birthdays. I pick it up and open it and there's $15 in it from several years ago. All I can say is Thank You St. Jude!
