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.

    Blessed Saint Jude, fountain of every hope, I humbly thank you for the miracle of full recovery from drug addiction. Through your love and intercession, through my Saviour Lord Jesus Christ and his Blessed Mother Mary, all the angels and saints in Heaven I am finally free. I come to you again today, and ask your help in releasing all my friends who have not managed to break their addiction. Although we don’t see each other anymore, they are all in my heart and prayers and I ask Our Blessed Lord Jesus to release them from these evil ties. Thank you for all the miracles. The big and the small. Jesus I Trust In You +

    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!
