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 pray for my son James, who has been struggling with addiction for the last 17 years to drugs…now the doctors have him on hydromorphone for herniated discs and which he has been injecting, with heroin. He was taken to the hospital in ICU 14 days ago and they are discharging him tomorrow but he has no where safe to go and he can’t live with me anymore. Please pray that somehow, God will be able to direct his path and he will have the courage to do what God is leading him to do.
