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.

Give me the peace,quiet, determination to quit or practice quitting. concerning my ongoing prayer.It seems the answer will not come soon enough to suit me.Which of course is immediately, for my patience level. So many have had this prayer fulfilled, but mine is longstanding.20 years or more… I have always wanted a wife and it seems you are about to deliver just who I wanted and asked for. Surprising. The suspense is terrible.I need the reassurance. Edifying reassurance. In the name of Jesus, amen
