St. Jude Prayer – St Jude Thaddeus Prayer

St. Jude Prayer

St. Jude Thaddeus was one of the twelve Apostles of Christ. He is known as the brother of Saint James the less. Also he might have been a relative of Jesus Christ since his mother was Clopas, the Blessed Virgin Marys cousin. In the Catholic church he is the patron Saint of lost causes. That is why when someone feels down and out they should try a St. Jude prayer.

He is often depicted, holding an image of Jesus in one hand and a club (a symbol of his martyrdom) in the other. Often the Holy Spirit can be seen over his head as a tongue of fire (in remembrance of Pentecost when He came upon the apostles). some prayers include:

St. Jude Thaddeus Prayer

“Most Holy Apostle St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus. The name of the traitor who led your beloved Master into the grasp of the enemies, has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and calls on you universally as the patron of hopeless cases and of things despaired of. St. Jude Pray for me who is so needy. Make use, I urge you of that particular privilege, awarded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost lost.

Come to my aid in this great need that I may receive the consolations and assistance of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings. Particularly (here mention your petition) and that I may praise God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O blessed Jude to be ever grateful of this great favor, and I will never stop to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.”

St Jude Prayer Miracle

“Dearest St. Jude Thaddeus, relative of our Lord Jesus and Blessed Mother Mary. Glorified Apostle and Martyr, acknowledged for Your virtues and miracles. Faithful and swift intercessor for all who honor You and trust in You. Powerful patron and helper in dire need, I come to You and implore You with all my heart. Come to my rescue, for You have acquired from God the power of assisting with manifest help those who almost give up! Look down upon me.

My life is a life of hardship, my days are full of tribulation, and my paths are filled with thorns and rarely does one moment pass without bearing witness to my tears and sighs. My soul is covered by darkness, anxiety, discouragement, mistrust. Yes, sometimes even a kind of despair comes over me. Divine destiny seems lost to my sight, and faith seems to waver in my heart. Overwhelmed by these thoughts, I see myself shrouded in a dark cloud. You can not leave me in this sad plight! I will not depart from You until You have heard me. Oh, hurry to my aid! I will thank God for the miracles bestowed upon me, and will propagate Your honor according to my power. Amen.”
