Prayers to Saint Jude: Patron of Hopeless and Desperate Cases

 Patron of Hopeless and Desperate Cases

O most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the church honors and invokes you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone.

Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege given to you, to bring visible and speedy help where help is 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 (state your request) and that I may praise God with you and all the elect forever.

I promise, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.

True relative
Of Jesus and Mary,
I salute you through
This Sacred Heart of Jesus!

Through his Heart
I praise and thank God
For all the graces
He has bestowed upon you.

Humbly prostrate before you
I implore you,
Through His Heart,
To look down upon me
With compassion.

Despite my poor prayer;
Let not my trust
Be confounded!

To you God has granted
The privilege of
Aiding mankind
In the most desperate cases.

Oh, come to my aid
Until I can thank you in heaven.

All my life
I will be your grateful client
Until I can thank you in heaven.
Amen.

St. Jude, pray for us
And for all who invoke your aid.
Amen.

(to be prayed for 9 consecutive days)

  2. Thank-you St. Jude for your bounty in answering my pleas to you. Novenas and praying to St. Jude works - the intercession of the saints on our behalf is REAL. The Spirit of the Lord is the blessing that Jesus left us when he departed, and the saints hear our prayers.

    Praise God! Thank-you St. Jude!

  3. Thank-you St. Jude for answering so many prayers, for providing opportunity and recognition of hard work and accomplishment for my son and my husband, and for delivering me to employment where I can grow and learn, and now hopefully, survive, provide, tithe and set aside in savings.

  4. Thank you St. Jude for answering my prayers. You are the Saint of the Impossible...the saint of Desperate Emergencies...the saint of Hopeless Cases...the saint of Impossible Requests...the saint of Lost Causes...Miracle Worker. You've always had my back, and whenever I've prayed to you to intercede for me, our Lord has always granted me whatever I've asked him for. It is because of YOUR powerful intercession that He has given me whatever I've asked him for, time and again. I will always be grateful to you and acknowledge you in every sphere of life and will invoke you whenever I'm in despair of all hope. Thank you so much for granting me my request that I have been praying for, for the past 10 months, which was absolutely impossible. Out of nowhere, God made a way, where there seemed to be no way; and my situation turned around, overnight...a 360 degree turn. Thank you so much once again.

  5. Dear Saint Jude,
    I know you can do all things. Please give me a second chance with Michael, the man I love. Let him know how much I love and care for him and help him to being understanding of why I have acted the way I have. Let him see that I have changed. I have learned my lesson and know how important it is to not take those you love for granted, and that you have to have God and faith in your relationship or else it will fail. Please find a way for us to date, and if possible, bring him to the same state as me and find him a good job. I promise, if my request is granted, to publish this novena to you and and share my story and thanks with everyone I know, so as to increase devotion to you.

  8. Dear St Jude, I implore your help in this desperate case. You who are the aiding hand in things which are almost despaired off. Please intervene and guide Victor back to me. He is the man I love so deeply, and miss so badly. I pray that our relationship will be restored and that he may find the love again in his heart that we once shared. Otherwise he can borrow some of mine! Make him understand that our relationship was a gift bestowed upon us from the Heavenly Father and it was a mistake to cast it away. Make him contact me again and stop this cruel behaviour of ignoring me. Pray for me and I'll be your most sincere devotee. If you help me, I'll go back to all the sites I've published on in your name, to make them know how you've helped me. Amen.

  10. St Jude my Saint of all imoposibilities I pray that you intercede with our Lord for me. My heart is heavy I feel desperate. I have been given a temporary promotion which is due to run out by the end of March. I despise my old role and do not want to return to it. St jude I pray that you may make my return to the job an impossibility. They say that the possibility of extending the role may not be there but I know and trust in you. You are the patron of impossible causes. You will make it a possibility for me. You will make it impossible for them to decide to send me back to my old role. St jude I am applying for other roles as well as applying to leave the organisation. I want to leave the organisation but I can only leave once they pay me, this won't happen for some months. I pray to you St Jude please make my impossible cause a possibility.

    I thank you for all answered prayers. I oh continue to amaze me. You continue to make me trust and believe in your power.

    Thank you St Jude.
