  • Michael C. March 15, 2019 at 7:52 PM

    Dear St. Jude, you helped me with your prayers when I was unemployed and came to this site in January 2016. I found work a month later. Now in March 2019 I desperately need your help. I need your prayers again. I have only worked in 3 of the last 15 months. I’ve had almost 2 dozen interviews in the last 12 months, but no one has hired me for a permanent position. Right now, after 21 interviews come and gone, it seems like no one ever will. I seem to be knocking at all the wrong doors, since no one will hire me, but I don’t know where the right one is. My money will run out soon, and my wife and child will suffer because of my inability to find work. Please St. Jude, pray for me. Thank you.
