Becca Anderson (author of Prayers for Calm) gifts us with this St. Jude prayer of comfort and hope.
Saint 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 you, 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 throughout all 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 do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen..
Saint Jude, pray for us and for all who honor you and invoke your aid.
– National Shrine to St. Jude, Patron of Desperate Situations
