Prayer to St. Jude (Patron saint of Desperate)

St. Jude Thaddeus was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. In the Roman Catholic Church, he is the patron saint of desperate causes and lost causes. Here is an intercessory prayer to St. Jude.

St. Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the true Church invokes you universally as the Patron of things despaired of and lost.

Pray for me, who is so miserable. Pray for me, that I may finally receive the consolations and the succour of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (ADD YOUR PERSONAL REQUEST HERE), and that I may bless God with the Elect Throughout Eternity. Amen

Dear St. Jude, I have been praying your novena for many, many years now and I am a witness of petitions that were granted, some were not granted and I believed it was for my or my family’s good sake.

  7. St. Jude:

    I pray to you to remove the Devil from my husband. He has been abusive to me and continues to get more agressive toward my daughter and the rest of my family in recent years. He has acted out in front of our friends and in public, so that all feel sorry for me and wonder why I am still with him after so many years of his disrespect and violence. He uses alcohol and sleeping pills daily and he does not have faith in the Lord. He is very successful in his job and makes quite a bit of money, but it is not enough for him. He does not understand how fortunate he is and how many blessings he has. He is an angry person and I pray for the healing of his lost soul.
