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,

    I beg of you to give me the strength to channel my addictions away and to have the strength as well to manage them and learn coping skills that will build me up and take my soul and emotional mindstate away from easy temptations. As an addict, I pray in regards to my daily medication that I have the will power and self-discipline to take it as prescribed and better my well-being and train of thought. In regards to gambling, I pray for the courage and strength to stay away from any kind of establishments such as casinos and betting parlors until I can learn to have that enjoyment and experience on a once every 6 months to a year basis. St. Jude I also pray for all addicts in general suffering from addiction/addictions of all kinds and that we as addicts can come together to better each other and make the world a more happier place. Amen.

    Why are you allowing addictions run your lives? You have the power within yourselves that God has given you to be healed and free of addictions and to put your trust in Him, the Lord, our God, who is loving you and wants you to come to know Him, love Him and trust in Him. I pray that you will no longer give such power to your addictions and turn that power into prayer, trust, faith and hope. May God Bless you, always.
