Prayer to St. Jude for Healing
Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, friend of Jesus,
I place myself in your care at this difficult time.
Pray for me;
Help me know that I need not face my troubles alone.
Please join me in my need,
Asking God to Send me
Consolation in my sorrow,
Courage in my fear,
And healing in the midst of my suffering.
Ask our loving God to fill me with the grace
To Accept whatever may lie ahead
For me and my loved ones,
And to strengthen my faith in God’s Healing power.
Thank you, St. Jude, for the promise
Of hope you hold in to all who believe,
And inspire me to give this gift of hope
To others as it has been given to me.
Prayer to St. Jude
Glorious St. Jude,
You were called to be
one of Christ’s chosen apostles.
You traveled many lands
to spread Christ’s Gospel of Light.
You converted souls and performed miracles,
and you died a martyr for the Faith.
In especially needful and despairing cases
you are honored among the saints.
Be with me and help me to see
God’s purpose in all my trials,
knowing that every sincere prayer
will be answered in some way.
