St. Jude

A Prayer to St. Jude

Most holy apostle, St. Jude,
faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
the Church honors and invokes you universally,
as the patron of hopeless cases,
of things almost despaired of.
Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone.
Make use I implore you,
of that particular privilege given to you,
to bring visible and speedy help where
help is almost despaired of.
Come to my assistance in this great
need that I may receive the consolation
and help of heaven in all my necessities,
tribulations, and sufferings, particularly

(here make your request)

and that I may praise God with you and
all the elect forever.
I promise, O blessed St. Jude,
to be ever mindful of this great favor,
to always honor you as my special
and powerful patron,
and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.
