My boyfriend of 3 yrs broke up with me out of the blue. Things was getting hard for him, and he broke up with me because of the stressed that over whelms him. I fought so hard for us to stick together. I told him not to push me, I will not force him and let him work on his issues. I patiently waited for three months, and finally I convinced him to let me work on us. A week after that, he bailed on his words and said I should let go. He blocked me and I had not speak with him in two weeks now.
Our situation is difficult. I offer to pray with him for some peace, on our last conversation, but he didn’t answer back. I prayed for him anyway. I know he love me and I love him too.
We both have grown so much, with each other’s presence. He help me a lot getting out of depression and become alive, and I help him with his self confidence. Together we are a strong couple, and I truly believe he is a gift from God. I am closer to God now, because of him. I wake up thanking God for this blessings.
I have faith in this relationship. I believe it is not meant to end like this.
I am so lost without him. I haven’t heard of him for two weeks and I’m just devastated because I feel a part of me is missing. My heart is breaking and I don’t know what to do with it.
I’ve been losing myself for the past couple of days. My heart is heavy and broken, and my faith is wearing thin. I am so desperate for some sign from God. Well, the other day I went to look for some comforting prayer when I say the St. Jude’s prayer.
I have always seen this prayer published in newspaper, or circulated in Facebook, even being handed copies of this prayer, but I never really prayed at it.
In desperation, I prayed to St. Jude for reconciliation with my boyfriend.
Yesterday was the 1st day. After reciting the prayer, I felt a sense of calmness in myself. I felt myself renewed. My faith restored. My heart is not heavy anymore. I don’t feel like crying everytime I think of him. I feel confident. I feel like St. Jude has heard my prayer and is praying for me now.
I loved the peace everytime I say prayers from the depth of my heart. No answer yet, but my heart is at peace. And I feel calm. I didn’t go to bed in tears, but instead my heart is praising God for attending my broken heart.
Today is day 2. No answer yet. But I saw that he has been doing a project with a woman, who is a friend of his. The lady is recently broke up with her boyfriend, and starting to contact with him. What better way to start new days with another person who is recently broke up too, right…that’s how me and my ex started.
For a moment, I felt insecure. I felt like I’m forgotten just like that. But I remembered what he said, ‘Don’t ever think there’s another woman. NO. I just don’t feel like my condition is getting better. My life is a mess and it’s not time for another person to be in it..’ Although disappointing to hear, I know he told the truth.
Shook that feeling off, and recite my day 2 novena.
I also found another Saint to pray for intercessor. Saint Dwynwen.
I felt better on the hands of these two saints. No answer yet. But I’m full of faith and I know St. Jude and St Dwynwen will come to my aid and pray for me on my intention to the Lord.
I hope all of you who are in desperation and broken hearted will find your peace in these prayers. It help me restored mine.
Pray these novenas in 9 consecutive days. Or 9 times a day. Answers are on God’s will, but the saints will come to your aid. Publication must be made to show your thanksgiving to the saints and a way of adoration.
Novena to Saint Jude

fifteen minutes of daily reflection and heart-prayer
1. Spend 30 seconds in silence, becoming aware of your breathing, bringing your attention to the present moment and the prayer journey you are on.
2. Pray the Jesus prayer three times: not my will, but yours be done.
3. Read through your list of heart prayers thoughtfully, making marks or notes or changes as you go…
• Are there any new longings that have emerged, to be added to the list?
• Are there any longings that need to be edited or clarified in some way?
• Are there any longings that need to be moved up the list? (I want it more than…)
• Are there any longings that need to be move down the list?
• Are there any longings that you are ready to remove from the list?
4. Every day, or when necessary, take time to re-write your list on a new page.
5. Pray (read through) your list, starting at the top of the list and moving down.
6. End by saying the Lord’s Prayer. (3 versions below)
Our Father in heaven,
Reveal who you are.
Set the world right;
Do what’s best— as above, so below.
Keep us alive with three square meals.
Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
You’re in charge!
You can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.
God, our father (our mother)
may your name be honoured
may your Way become our way
as we surrender to your will
Give us what we need, for today
Just as you free us when we have fallen, help us not to hold on for too long to pain caused by others.
Guide us and give us wisdom to distinguish between your voice, and what only seems like your voice.
