I’m sharing a significant prayer for me. I have passed it along to many others, whether they believed or not, and their prayers were answered. Saint Jude is one of my saintly friends.
What I mean by that is that I consider some of the Saints that I pray with and to as Spirit Helpers of mine. Together, we co-create. I’m sharing this prayer with you because it has helped so much in my life and in the life of others. It is very powerful.
If ever you find yourself in desperate need, Saint Jude is the go to helper to call on.
In particular, I have called upon him in situations that relate to employment and money, but also to general situations where there is loss of hope.
If you want to use this prayer, I suggest you pray it 9 days in a row and then let your concern go.
I’ve read somewhere that praying out loud is more effective. I think it’s a personal choice. Although, I’ve found that I can more easily enter into a deeper meditative state when I pray aloud in a low repetitive voice.
St. Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of difficult and desperate cases. Pray for me who am so miserable. Make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of.
Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly – (here make your request) – and that I may bless God with you and all the elect through out all eternity.
I promise you, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and do all in my power to encourage devotion to you.
Saint Jude, pray for us and for all who honor and invoke thy aid.
By the way, Thaddeus is Greek name meaning “great hearted one”, and as far as I know, this is accurate.
If you have a special experience with St. Jude, please share.
