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.

    St. Jude,
    Please intercede for all students, especially my family and friends. May my niece and nephew find joy and success this academic year, and find the right career path… One that the Lord has chosen for them. I pray also for my siblings in higher education. May the Lord continue to bless them and give them the strength and motivation to complete their studies. May their doubts and fears be replaced with hopefulness and courage.

    Amen.

    St Jude, St. Joseph and St. Anthony walk with my son, guide him on his journey today & every day, ease his stress, calm his mind, keep him in remission, help him to find balance and calm while writing his dissertation. Give him clear thoughts and ideas – lead him to success in his disserttion, and in his search for a good job that will give him excellent medical coverage & financial freedom. Give him a sense of belonging & friendships wherever he is & wherever he goes. Let his new home be safe, welcoming and friendly and let him soon find an excellent job that makes use of his unique abilities and knowledge and personality. Make him strong, healthy and robust. God bless him & guide him this day & always. Amen.
