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.

    My nephew is addicted to drugs by choice. He suffers so much pain because of sexual abuse as a child which he can not break free from. He has no joy and no longer wants to live as the pain is so great. He is not of any faith but his Mum has always called upon St Jude in times of trouble even although she too is not of any faith. Please pray for him to break his drug addiction and find the help he needs to find his way out of the pain of child sexual abuse and find the will to live again. St Jude please pray for this and for his heart to be opened to Christ. Amen.

    Praying for my oldest son who had an addiction problem and has recovered for 2 years now. Today my sister had lots of people over and tonight my son, his dad and I dropped by. My sister called a little while ago and asked my son if he took her pain medicine. I asked him and he was hurt to know that because of his past addiction to smoke he was accused of taking the pills. He has been with us since we left there. I searched his pockets and his car and nothing was found. He is heartbroken that family members accused him. I pray that St. Anthony helps her find her missing pills.

    St. Jude, you have been a wonderful and faithful friend to me and I am eternally grateful for holding my hand through my journey. Tonight, I kindly ask you for your powerful intercession for my husband. We have been together for 14 years, 9 years of a tumultuous marriage that has produced 4 beautiful miracles. He has struggled with addiction to marijuana and gambling and has had several affairs. Only tonight, has he given me an inclination that he acknowledges he may have a problem and is willing to further explore his issues. This gives me much hope after almost 3 years of prayers. I ask for you to pray that God may soften his heart and move his spirit to confront these issues with courage and resolve. May our Holy Mother bind up these evil spirits of addictions and do away with them. May She hold his hand and lead him to Our Lord. May my husband learn to walk by faith and not by sight by letting go and letting God. Please continue to hold my hand through these trenches so that I may inspire him to put God first in his life. In Jesus name, I pray! Amen!
