Novena to Saint Jude

Novena Prayer to St. Jude Thaddeus to be repeated once a day for nine days:

Most holy Apostle, SAINT JUDE THADDEUS, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, you bear name of the traitor, who delivered the beloved Master into the hands of His enemies. Yet the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases and things despaired. Pray for me! Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and support of heaven in all my necessities, evils, and sufferings: particularly…

(State Your Request)

… and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O blessed SAINT JUDE, to be ever mindful of this great favor and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you.

V. SAINT JUDE, Apostle of Hope:
