Prayer to St. Jude

(St. Jude is known as the patron of hopeless cases)

A novena prayer is said nine days in succession


O God, the Apostle St. Jude Thaddeus was a faithful servant and friend of your Son and our Lord Jesus Christ. His name has been forgotten by many because of the name of a traitor who delivered our beloved Master into the hands of his enemies. But your Church honors him and invokes his intercession universally as the patron of those in difficulty who have found no other help. Grant that through St. Jude's intercession we may know your will for us, have the strength to do it, and enjoy the consolation of your Holy Spirit as well as your blessings in time and in eternity. Heavenly Father, may St. Jude intercede for us in all our necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (here make your needs known). With him and all the saints may we praise you with your Son and Holy Spirit forever. Amen

St. Jude Thaddeus, pray for us, and for all who invoke your aide.
