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.

    Thankyou Jesus for your endless love. Your love is powerful beyond understanding. Thank you St Jude, for being close to Jesus and a friend to remind us of His ways. I implore you for your valuable intercession, St Jude, please be a guide and support and draw on the strength of the only living God toward me away from temptation…and even more importantly let me be able to resist temptation when it is on my face. Intercede with The Lord regarding the addictions and compulsive behaviors my sister and I are afflicted by. We both want more than anything to be free. Thank you Jesus and bless you St Jude. Amen

    Dear Lord,I want to thank You for all that You are doing, even if I cannot see it. Lord, please deliver Tim from his sexual, alcohol & other addictions. Yes Lord, he hurt me but I ask that You help me forgive him & please forgive him too. Please deliver him from the evil one. I don’t know if it is Your Will Lord to bring us back together, and as much as I pray it is, it’s more important to save Tim from himself & the evil one. Thank you St Jude for interceding with Jesus & God on my behalf. Amen
