Prayer to St Jude Thaddeus

Most Holy Apostle, St Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the church recognizes and invokes you universally as the Patron of difficult cases and things almost despaired of.

Pray for me, for I am so helpless and alone. Intercede for me to our Almighty God so that He brings visible and speedy help when 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, sufferings, particularly (make your request here) …that I may praise God with you and all the saints forever.

I promise, O Blessed St Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favour granted to me by God, and to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.
