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.

    Dear St. Jude, pray for us,
    I pray that you be with Michael L. as he gets through his final year(s) in college. Give him the courage, strength, knowledge, motivation, and skills that he needs to get through this rough period in school, and in his life. Please also give him the patience and the clarity that he needs to make good decisions about school and what he wants to do. Protect him from harm and keep him safe at all times. Michael L. is a wonderful son, brother, student, and friend. His heart is always in the right place. Bless him and his family St. Jude. I know that you will be with him always. I also want to thank you and tell you how grateful I am for what you have done and continue to do for me and my family. I ask that you continue to touch the hearts of both my son David and my husband so that they too can find peace within themselves and each other. Bless and protect my son Michael M. as he protects others from bad situations. Bless Amanda and Daniel and guide them to make wise choices in their everyday interactions. I promise St. Jude to be ever mindful of this great favor and to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen
