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
    thank-you for the prayers of the recent Novena.& all the prayers on the webs . & I have received now several miracles , e.g. the terrible painter abuses voodoo has been better resolved with my father |& more towards sure next time to have different house painters. but if the old one visits the house for another reason – hope this will not happen .
    & 2nd – my father has had problems finalising last will & testament – I asked for prayers – but this failed at first – he went to a new company & I was upset -then last minute he left that company , a miracle – & now he seems to have a perfect new company we are all basically more happy with & few other points not sure yet . but my father must not change again -this has to be the final resolution . & my dogs were more healthy , some of my ailments improved, some of the work horses got better -just the 1 rash did not heal . |& then 1 of my dogs Jigme – he is almost the only hardship that has not been healed – his swellings lymphosarcomas – but some are very slightly better , 1 or 2 are not so great by 1 armpit . but here I am fully totally clear of the psycho cyber abusers on the dog’s legs & bullies , |&with the 50-60 herbs – it is just these bad forces I can not remove myself & this is the obstacle . & I pray that the swellings stabilise & that ulcer sores bleeding sores cancer sores WILL NOT develop in the swellings , & that NO leukaemia will start .
    anyway – thank-you .& am coping with all other general problems . thank-you very much.
