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.

    My dearest St Jude,
    Please pray for my daughter on her last exam for college. She needs to pass this class to graduate. She has worked so hard for four years of no partying and staying focus on her school work. She even takes time to pray to you regularly and say a rosary every Sunday. She needs an extra 5 or 10 points in this class. The professor has been very hard but promised at the beginning to give extra points for perfect attendance so I pray to you also that he keeps his word. Heavenly Father I thank you and all the saints for answering my prayers when I’m in need, you have never failed me. I love you with my whole heart. In Jesus name I pray…
