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.

    Please help my son with his depression & anxiety. He is so sad and so isolated. He feels like everything is always turned against him(and it really does seem that as soon as he sees light, another shoe drops and he’s back in the tunnel again). Please help me and his family know how to help him and help him reach out to us. We love him and can’t bear to see him so depressed. Help him to find a way out and find a direction for his life and realize that all the bad things will help him grow into a resilient strong man. Amen.
