October 28 – Saints Simon and Jude

Saints Simon and Jude

listenDear Savior, Saints Simon and Jude were both Apostles. Saint Simon was zealous about preaching the Good News.  His partner, Saint Jude, was known for exorcising pagan idols, which crumbled as the demons fled.  Saint Jude is the patron saint of desperate situations and lost causes, and I ask them both to pray against the demons who are working to influence me or any members of my family, my church, or my friends.  Remind us, O Lord, that no one is a lost cause and that You can turn even the most terrible situation into good.  Help us to find protection in Your love as we reject Satan by purifying our souls and leading holy lives.  Saints Simon and Jude, pray for us.  Amen.
