If you are then you need to understand that prayer to Saint Matthew can and will work to help you out of your money problems. There is nothing magical about it, no one is asking you to give up anything, just simply change your ways a little bit.
St Matthew is the patron saint to pray to for financial help.
Prior to preaching the word of God, he worked as a tax collector in Capernaum. Matthew is the patron saint of tax collectors and accountants so it is easy to see why Saint Matthew can offer financial help.

People have been asking for money through prayer to Saint Matthew for centuries, so you know that it works. It also works because God wants you to have the things you need. If you have enough money to work, then you are blessed. You also need to know that it won’t come right away, so you shouldn’t expect it to all fall into place the first week you go to prayer. It took time for people to have enough money to work and live, so don’t expect it to fall into place all at once.
Saint Matthew was quite experienced in financial affairs.
A tax collector by trade (one of the most reviled professions in ancient Judaism.) born in Nazereth Israel first century BC, Saint Matthew was one of the 12 discipes of jesus and quoted in the bible as saying;
No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.Matthew 6:24
