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.

    Thank you, St. Jude, for all you have prayed for and interceded for me and my prayers. You have helped me and my loved ones very much. You have helped complete strangers and homeless brothers and sisters as well. I thank God for you, in Jesus Name; How Great Thou Art is the song and praise this all makes me think of often regarding God’s blessings to me, in Jesus Holy Name. I pray today for me to quit drinking alcohol, and to remember my Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, and Rafael, and what they mean to me. I do respect them all and very recently St. Gabriel and am glad for his friendship too! St. Jude, please remember my prayers to God in Jesus Holy Name, and I pray for my nephews, and for my friend Jack, that he will receive his needs according to God’s will, of which God knows of what is best for him. And I pray for my nephews to be good citizens and to respect their bodies as well as their “brothers and sisters”…always. I love you, St. Jude, and please don’t forget about me. Amen.

Jesus, please help my wife to overcome her drug addiction. I just found out about it recently. I must approach her with this first and let her know that I know about her doing drugs. Hopefully she will cooperate and accept the fact that what she is doing is wrong, and hopefully, she can stop. Please be with me while I talk to her about it, and please be with her also. St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, pray for us! Lord Jesus Christ, please help us.

    Lord, through the intercession of St. Jude, I pray for my dear friend Alejandro who is trapped by sex addiction. May he embrace fully the mercy and graces of the Lord, and be renewed and redeemed in His love. That he may embrace his role as a father and learn to truly love those around him, especially the women in his life.

  • Pat October 15, 2011 at 8:56 PM

    Dear Lord Jesus, through the intercession of dear St Jude, I pray for deliverance of Jason and I. We’ve been living a life of drinking, gambling, smoking and night club addiction. It has ruined our lives and we’ve lost the trust and respect of our families and friends and colleagues. I got evicted from my flat and am in deep financial crisis. J has left me for another woman because of our constant arguments and fighting. Without these vices, we are both good charitable and hospitable people. I will not give up on us because there was a genuine love for each other and our families. The Lord blessed us with each other and with our love. We failed to include Jesus in our lives and the sins of the world have broken us. I pray to you St Jue to intercede for me to our Lord. I pray this with faith and conviction. I believe in forgiveness and reconciliation. I believe in the good of each and every person. I pray this in the most powerful name of Jesus. Amen.
    Thank you Jesus and St Jude for the opportunity to publish my request. I promise to encourage devotion to you St Jude and be ever mindful of the help you have given me.

  • A. P. October 12, 2011 at 4:07 PM

    Dear God and dear Saint Jude.
    I am a very strong believer in my heart and I feel very guilty for not knowing you before. Very recently I have learned that people turn to you when they are desperate and when they have no where else to go and no one else to help them. I am turning to you with a great hope that with God’s will and with your help I will be blessed with a miracle like many others whom you have helped and lent a hand to. I am begging you from the bottom of my heart, with great faith and great love to help a person that is very, very, very dear to me. His name is K.M. and with God’s will and your help I would like to ask you to cure him from his drug addiction. Please, please, please heal him from this dreadful and terrible illness and habit. Please, cure him finally and forever from his physiological and psychological addiction to drugs of any kind. Please, heal him so that from now on he will never ever want to or will never ever use any kinds of drugs. Dear God and dear St. Jude, with Christ’s name, I am begging you to take K.M. under your wings and protect him. Please, keep him safe and show him the right way in life, show him the way to You. Please make him find the peace and joy in You. Protect him from bad temptations and influences. Please, give him the strength to be a good person and a loyal believer and a servant to You. Dear God, I know that there is nothing that is not within your powers and that there is nothing impossible for you. In the Holy Bible it is said that if one asks You for help with great faith and belief and with great honesty, You lend a hand and help. I am asking you from the bottom of my heart and soul with great faith, belief and honesty to do a miracle for K.M. and cure him forever and ever. I am asking You for this miracle first of all for K.M., and for him to be physically and psychologically healthy and to be the man I know he can be. However, I am also asking You for this miracle because I am suffering from his addiction as well. His addiction problems are jeopardizing our relationship and our families well beings. I know that I am a sinner, however, I promise that I will be a better and a bigger person from now on. I promise that I will be forever grateful to You and St. Jude if You decide to bless K.M. and me with the miracle of curing him from his drug addiction. We are very blessed and very thankful for what You have given us, dear God. I promise that I will spread Your word and St. Jude’s miracles to people who surround me and to those in need.
    “Dear, Saint Jude, drug addiction has caused a terrible upset in my family. The victim of this self-inflicted sickness has lost all sense of true reality – the reality of love as well as the reality of life. Beg Almighty God to make this addict aware that true euphoria can only be found in heaven and not with chemical dependence.
    3 Our Father’s, 3 Hail, Mary’s and 3 Gory Be’s.
    I promise, O blessed Saint Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you by publishing this request. Amen.”
