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.

    “Here I am, O Lord; I come to do your will.“
    I join my prayers with all of you battling addictions. Think about this..God has special plans for you and your life. Trust in Him and He will wipe away your addictions and put you on the path that you were designed to do here on earth. Take His Hand, trust in Him and allow Him to lead you out of the darkness and into the Light of His Love. You have the will and He will give you everything you need to be healed. Have faith, never give up hope and know that you are wrapped in His neverending Love. Believe in yourself and trust in Him. God Loves you and so do I.

    God has a plan for you and it will unfold in time, and the only thing required of you is to remain faithful to Him. Are you courageous enough to trust such providence that goes beyond all human understanding? If you do, pray the following prayer with all your heart, mind, body, and soul:

    Lord, in your will is my peace. Let your will be done in me.
