Most holy Apostle St. Jude, friend of Jesus,
I place myself in your care at this difficult
Pray for me; help me know
that I need not face my troubles alone.
Please join me in my need,
asking God to send me consolation in my sorrow,
courage in my fear,
and healing in the midst of my suffering.
Ask our loving God to fill me
with the grace to accept
whatever may lie ahead for me and my loved
and to strengthen my faith in God's healing
Thank you, St. Jude,
for the promise of hope
you hold out to all who believe,
and inspire me to give this gift of hope
to others as it has been given to me.
