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.

    Oh Dear St. Jude I come to you with this desperate plea to help my fiancee overcome his drug and alcohol addiction. To show him the righteous way for himself and his family. To one day wake up and be grateful for everything he has been given. To separate him physically and mentally from all who are not good and from the persuasion of continuing with his addiction. I pray to you that you save his life by helping him recover from his addictions and to save our deteriorating relationship. In Jesus name I pray. AMEN.

    Please pray that my cousin and I will reconcile.
