St. Jude Prayer for Depression


Pray to St. JudeSt. Jude, friend to those in need, I am weary from grief, without joy, without hope, struggling to find the light I know is in my soul. I turn to you, my most trusted intercessor. Take away this emptiness and the pain of my broken heart. In your compassion, help my tears to lead me to a place of peace in my heart. Too long have I forgotten the goodness of God’s world. Heal me. I yearn to feel light, to feel joy. Envelop me in brightness, and do not hold back. And I promise, if I receive these gifts, I will share them always in your name. Amen.

Post your prayer or petition below for those suffering from depression. Or if you would like, send your special intentions for those suffering from depression to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine of St. Jude where it will be prayed for by the Claretians.

    St.Jude, I am so depressed. I have severe anxiety and agoraphobia and it’s over taking my life from me. I no longer do the things I love, or function on my own. I see wonderful things happening to people around me but I stay stuck. The devil tempts me to masturbate and I battle this as well. I just want to be happy, get married and have a family of my own like I used to play when I was a child. I do not know how to help myself so I asking you help me. Please intercede for me and speak to the Lord on my behalf. Always hold me close and never let me fall
