St. Jude Prayer for Depression

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,

    Please help me overcome my depression and anxiety that is beginning to cripple my day to day life, my joy and my finances. I have no interest in working anymore and feel extremely worthless and that there is no point because I don’t bring anything to the table. My anxiety has become so much worse in the last few months. Sometimes I feel like I can’t breath. Please intercede on my behalf and let me live the joy in my life again. I have an amazing partner who loves me unconditionally and shows me his affection constantly but don’t believe I am worth it. I know I deserve everything that is good but these negative voices constantly tell me I don’t. Please pray for me.

Please also pray for my mother who is also unwell.

    St. Jude, Please pray for my special friend who is great need right now. He is suffering from depression and I suspect contemplating suicide. He has been unsuccessful in finding a job and is struggling in every way but seems to be giving up on the fight. The constant rejection notices seem to be taking their toll, not to mention that he is living on very little money. He could very well be homeless soon and he is truly scared. He has been through so much and he needs to find some peace. I fear for him and don’t know what to do to help. I try to be there for him, to listen to him, to help as much financially, but… Please ask the Lord to heal, guide, and protect him. Amen
