Novena Prayer to St. Jude
"Prayer for those in despair"
(July 27, 2011)
My dad asked me to post this prayer...
Blessed St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases and of things almost despaired of. Pray for me who am so helpless and alone. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege given to you to bring visible and speedy help where 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 and sufferings, particularly (Here make your request), so I may praise God with you and all the elect forever. I promise, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen. May the most Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored and loved in all tabernacles until the end of time. Amen. May the Sacred Heart Jesus. Blessed be St. Jude Thaddeus in all the world for eternity.
(Say this novena prayer six times a day for nine consecutive days, followed by one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be).
