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.

    St. Jude, help of the hopeless, aid us in our distress. You are a powerful intercessory and we are truly blessed with your help. We thank God for hearing our prayers for my son who is battling drug addiction every day of his life. Blessed Seelos, your miraculous intercessions are being heard. I thank God for accepting your powerful intercessions on our behalf. My son, who is battling drug addiction, has been wearing your second class relic cross, like the one you devotedly carried while doing God’s Work here in New Orleans, and has been drug free for 6 days (ever since he placed it around his neck), Alleluia, Thank You, Jesus. I pray that he continues to wear it and continues his success with his battle with addiction. I pray that God heals him and fills him with The White Light of the Holy Spirit to enlighten him, heal him, guide him and protect him from all evil. Blessed Seelos, you are our saint and I pray that Pope Francis declares your sainthood soon.

Day 5 and still he wears the Blessed Seelos cross and has not had any drugs, Thanks be to God. I do trust God will miraculously heal the addicted, the sick and the broken hearted. Mother Mary, Sacred Heart of Jesus, Padre Pio, St. Therese, St. Jude, all the angels and saints, please continue your intercessory prayers for all here and around us. God Bless all who read this and add their prayers. Amen.

    St. Jude, help of the hopeless, aid us in our distress. I thank God, everyday for His Miraculous Blessings. It has been 4 days since my son has done any drugs, Alleluia, Thank You, Jesus. I continue to pray for a miraculous healing of his addiction, his depression, his sadness, his lack of self confidence. I pray that He puts God first in his life and trust Him. I pray for all who are experiencing this pain. My son is physically ill from the effects of this….I pray for his health. We take it one day at a time. He has been wearing a second class relic, a wooden cross touched to the bones of Blessed Francis X. Seelos, for the past 3 days and I thank Blessed Seelos for his powerful, miraculous intercessions for my son. It is helping him stay from drugs, one day at a time. God Bless all reading this. There is always Hope in Jesus.

    St. Jude – Helper of the hopeless – I beg you to come to our aid. Help my son overcome his addiction. I love him so much but we have lost almost everything because of his lying and stealing. Help him get better and let us be a happy family again. The debt is killing me – the struggle with no results. I would like to be able to live life again without all this stress, pressure and worry. Please help our whole family with our health, financial situation and addiction which is the root of all the problems. Through Jesus’s name I pray. Thanks for listening St. Jude. Sometimes I feel like I am all alone.

    Prayer for All Human Needs

    Lord Jesus Christ, Your Heart still cherishes all the redeemed and is moved to pity for every human need. Aware of Your invitation, “Come to Me,” we pray for the afflicted, the sick, the confused, for all broken hearts, and shattered lives. We bring to You all their material, emotional, and spiritual needs as well as our own. By the love that led You to take flesh of the Virgin Mary, we plead for a favorable response to our prayers. Amen.

    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.
