When you are told of a prayer method that will lead to a guaranteed success, you need to be very careful. True prayer leaves the outcome of our request completely in God’s hands, knowing that he sees the total picture as no one can. 

Jude Taddeus (no, not the Judas who betrayed Jesus), is known for his intercession in hopeless and desperate cases. He will pray with you, as long as you are not trying to force God’s hand, and instead trust that whatever will happen he will be with you.

The outcome of your prayer is in God’s hands, not in yours! When you pray with faith, God surely hears you, and you can also be sure that he will give you what is good for you.
