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.

    Please St Jude, I ask for your intercession. I have made my way back to the Catholic Church after a wayward lifestyle in which I tried to find love, instead I found myself abandoned by my boyfriend after having 3 children with him, since then I have been smoking marijuana and can’t seem to stop like I usually do, I want to be a pure and holy vessel for my Jesus but my past habits seem to trample on my best intentions, Lord release me from my addiction so I can be used for your glory. Amen.
