AB and AC are equal chords of a circle. AD and BE are parallel chords through A and B respectively. Prove that AE is parallel to CD. Please help!

Of course, you have drawn a diagram?

If I were you, I would work to show that $m(\angle EAC) = m(\angle ACD)$.

There $m(\angle EAC)$ stands for the measure of the angle.

Recall that cords of equal length subtend arcs of equal measure.
