St. Jude Prayer for Addiction

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.

    Thanks be to God and to the many angels and saints that interceded for my son to be healed of his addictions and return to church. Miracles happen every day so we never give up hope. When I was praying for my son, some posted the St. Monica prayer for me to say to help my son and within a week, my son had stopped buying the drugs and began his recovery to be free from drugs. He has returned to God and Church. So, I am deeply grateful to God for His Miraculous Healing Blessings upon my son and our family. So, here is St. Monica’s prayer…it’s very powerful:

    PRAYER TO ST. MONICA

    Dear St. Monica,
    troubled wife and mother,
    many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime.
    Yet, you never despaired or lost faith.
    With confidence, persistence, and profound faith,
    you prayed daily for the conversion
    of your beloved husband, Patricius,
    and your beloved son, Augustine;
    your prayers were answered.
    Grant me that same fortitude, patience,
    and trust in the Lord.
    Intercede for me, dear St. Monica,
    that God may favorably hear my plea for

    (Mention your intention here.)

    and grant me the grace to accept His Will in all things,
    through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
    in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
    one God, forever and ever.

    My son got some sad news yesterday, that a person from high school, that was a friend, died of a heroin overdose. He was probably about 26 or 27 years old. Praying for his soul and for his family. Drugs are darkness, sadness and pain. So many people say that drugs make them feel good, but how is that possible when it causes so much heartache, pain and sadness? Praying for all addicts to see that have God and His Loving, Healing Light in their lives bring true happiness, joy, and peace. Pray for God to send His Archangel Raphael into the lives of addicts and heal them, comfort them and always help them know that they are never alone when they put God first in their lives and that He loves them more than they could even imagine. God Bless you all. Peace.
