Prayers to St. Jude, saint of the impossible

Source link here.

Prayer used at the Shrine
Most Holy Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of his enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors you, and I invoke you as the special advocate of those who are in trouble and almost without hope. Help me to realize that through our faith we triumph over life's difficulties by the power of Jesus who loved us and gave his life for us. Come to my assistance that I may receive the consolation and succor of heaven in all my needs, trials, and sufferings, particularly (here make your request) and that I may praise God with you and all the saints forever.

St. Jude, apostle of the Word of God, pray for us.
St. Jude, follower of the Son of God, pray for us.
St. Jude, preacher of the love of God, pray for us.
St. Jude, intercessor before God, pray for us.
St. Jude, friend of all in need, pray for us.
St. Jude, pray for us, and for all who invoke your aid.

A private prayer to St. Jude

Gracious God, your Son Jesus Christ gave us the confidence to call you Father. We believe you care for us. We believe also in the communion of saints. With confidence we ask St. Jude, patron of difficult cases, to pray with us, for our special intentions....

Thank you, God, for hearing our prayer. Amen.

Additional prayers to Saint Jude Thaddeus, Apostle
Dear Jesus, I want to follow you, I want to be your disciple. But I know my weakness and my need of help. May the example of Saint Jude, the forgotten saint, inspire me. May the intercession of Saint Jude, saint of the impossible, help me. By the prayers of all the saints, may I obtain the grace to surrender completely to your love for me. Amen.

God, the Apostle, Saint Jude Thaddeus, was a faithful servant and friend of our Lord Jesus Christ. 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 intercessions, we may know your will for us, have the strength to do it, and enjoy the consolations of your Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, may Saint Jude intercede for us in all our necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (here make your needs known). With him and with all the saints may we praise you with your Son and the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.

  6. Dear Saint Jude, "miraculous saint" patron of "lost causes" you have always been there for me when I thought all avenues in my life were closed and when I was feeling at my worse. You never have abondoned my children and I and for that I would like to express my sincere appreciation and heartfelt "thank you" The loss my father who was my best friend, the loss of my job, and a enduring a divorce all within a short time really put me at "rock bottom". However, with my belief and faith in you I prayed and I prayed day in and day out and with your help I got a job, our own place to live, and you still continue to help me get back on my feet..thanks to you my children and I received a tax break from the government for 2010 and that is allowing me to catch up and get back on our feet. This could not have happened without your help, support, and intervention. I will forever be indebted with you and honor you!

  15. Dear St Jude, i have been in a relationship with a man for the last 2.5 years, we love each other deeply, but he feels there is something stopping him from making the commitment i deserve and therefore wants to end it so as not to waste my time. i have been in many other relationships but i believe this is the man i am meant to be with. everything about the relationship feels right; the best way i can describe it is like "coming home" As i know that there is no situation God cannot overturn, please intercede on my behalf and pray that the Lord gives him the strength and encouragement to think positive about making a commitment to me and to see that our future will be full of love, respect, and trust for each other. St Jude you are the patron saint of lost causes and you have never failed to intercede for people in desperate situations please come to my aid as i am at my wits end now

  20. Dear St. Jude,
    Please return my love to me. This person was the answer to years of prayer for a loving partner to join my life. I always cherished the gift of this person and his love. I knew it was you, St. Jude who meant for us to be together by putting us in each others path over and over until we finally understood. Please don't let the difficult and painful circumstances that have just separated us be permanent. I had been praying faithfully and with devotion for all barriers between our being together to be removed. I am trying so hard to trust that these unexpected circumstances now parting us are a part of that process and not an end. I am just scared and hurt. Please hear my prayers, St. Jude. Please don't forget about me. Please help me. I am broken hearted and barely hanging on through the pain . I need your miraculous intercession, Blessed St. Jude. Please hear my prayers.

  26. St. Jude...please bring him back to me. I met him over 2 years ago & we were close. Then he drifted apart from me but we remained friends. He has just recovered from a serious illness & I was there for him when he needed me. Now he is better & I feel he is drifting away again. I love him with all my heart & want to be with him again, and want him to love & want me. This is so painful, St. Jude. You have helped me so much in the past. I am asking you to please help me again & bring my love back to me

    Thank you St Jude for your intersession. My son's child has come into his custody. Many of our prayers have been answered. Please continue to intercede for my son, that his medical condition can be brought fully under control and he can lead a productive life and be a great father. please ask that the evil assaults on him, the child, and our family be repelled and very soon the child will no longer have to even visit those that would bring harm. Your intercession has brought miraculous changes to our family. WE are so grateful and pray that all who seek your intersession will have a happy issue from their prayers. Please continue to interceed with our Lord Jesus Christ for our family...we are still under seige by true evil. We know our victory is already won. Thank you.

    Dear St. Jude,

    I have never brought a request like this to you but I remember my grandmother praising you and your help many times when I was a child. I ask that you help me in asking the Lord to grant me a good job soon. My last job destroyed my confidence and its hurting me in so many ways. I also ask that you help me in whatever way you can with my lonliness and lovesick heart. Please help me become a better stronger person and find not only employment and love soon but also find myself again.
