Prayer to St. Jude for Students

Back to School

National Shrine of St. JudeSt. Jude, stay with me. Though the journey of learning is long and often difficult, your quiet presence gives me courage. Sustain my trust in myself, my teachers, and fellow students. Help me to let go of my fears and believe in the growth that is happening, even though I may not see it right away. As I embark again on this mission of study, I ask for the grace to be wise in mind and word, compassionate at heart, and full of energy and zeal as I seek to learn the ways of God’s world and come to understand how my gifts may serve their best purpose. Amen.

Post your prayer or petition below for those heading back to school. Or if you would like, send your special intentions to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine of St. Jude where they will be prayed for by the Claretians.

    IN The name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

    Most holy St. Jude – apostle, martyr and friend of Jesus, today I ask that you pray for my daughter as she awaits her final result for her test 2 nursing exam that she will have a final grade of 80 or higher on test 2 and pass her skill check on today.

    You are the patron of the impossible. Pray for my daughter and her intentions! O St. Jude, pray that God’s grace and mercy will cover her intentions. Pray for the impossible if it is God’s will.

    Pray that she may have the grace to accept God’s holy will even if it is painful and difficult for me and her.

    St. Jude, you loved our Lord, help us to love Him more.

    O St. Jude, pray for us that we may grow in faith, hope and love and in the grace of Jesus Christ. Pray for these intention.
