St. Jude Prayer
O most holy Apostle, Saint Jude,
faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
the Church honors and invokes you everywhere
as the patron of anyone who has seemed to lose all hope.
Pray for me, therefore, Blessed Apostle Jude,
for I have lost my way, and have lost hope.
Our loving God has made you, Saint Jude,
a beacon of hope, and so I ask you humbly
to bring me speedy help where I most need it,
to my weak and downcast heart.
Come to my assistance in this great need,
that I may receive Heaven’s comfort and support
in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, but particularly:
(here make your request)
I promise you, O Blessed Saint Jude,
to forever remember the Grace you bring me,
and I will always honor you as my special and powerful patron,
while encouraging others to do the same.
