St. Jude Prayer for Addiction


Pray to St. JudeGod of life, You made me in Your perfect image, to live in Your love and to give You glory, honor and praise. Open my heart to Your healing power. Come, Lord Jesus, calm my soul just as you whispered “Peace” to the stormy sea. St. Jude, most holy Apostle, in my need I reach out to you. I beg you to intercede for me that I may find strength to overcome my illness. Bless all those who struggle with addiction. Touch them, heal them, reassure them of the Father’s constant love. Remain at my side, St. Jude, to chase away all evil temptations, fears, and doubts. May the quiet assurance of your loving presence illuminate the darkness in my heart and bring lasting peace. Amen.

    St Jude – plead intercede with our prayers to our Heavenly Father. We ask that the Lord place someone in our son’s life who can help lead him from the destructive path he is choosing. We pray that the Holy Spirit wrap his arms around him in protection and love. Bring our son back to us, let him realize the plan God has for him and the person he is meant to be. Let him realize how much his family loves him. Please release the demons that have had this grip on him for so long.
