Most Holy Apostle, St. Jude,
faithful friend and servant of Jesus,
the church honors and calls upon you,
as the patron of difficult cases,
of things almost despaired of,
Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone.
Intercede with God for me
that he bring visible and speedy help,
where help is almost despaired of.
Come to my assistance in this great need,
that I may receive the help and consolation
of Heaven in all my necessities,
tribulations, and sufferings, particularly
(MAKE YOUR REQUEST HERE)
-- and that I may praise God
with you and all the saints forever.
I promise, O blessed St. Jude
to be mindful of this great favor
granted me by God,
and to always honor you
as my special and powerful patron,
and to gratefully encourage
devotion to you.
Novena to St. Jude
