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.

Post your prayer or petition below for those suffering from addiction. Or if you would like, send your special intentions for those suffering from addiction to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine of St. Jude where it will be prayed for by the Claretians.

    St Jude I know you have walked with me since my first post in early February I have been sober for 3 months something which I could not have done without your help. Please give your assistance and guidance to my stepdaughter who is in deep pain with her alcoholism. Give her new hope like you have given me new hope. Release her from the bondage of her addiction. In deepest gratitude for the gift of new life you have given me and so many others.

    Please St Jude of desperete cases. I ask you and all who read this to pray for me and my opiod use. I use it for chronic pain but have been taking more than prescribed, leaving me stuck in bed for weeks because of withdrawal. Thus, leaving my older children to take up much more duties in taking care of my younger children. Its not fair for them. Please Jesus, help me get back to the way I used to take my pain medicine and not run out. I ask this in Jesus name, Amen!
