A Healing Prayer to St. Jude

Most holy Apostle, St. Jude,
friend of Jesus,
I place myself in your care
at this difficult time.
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 ones,
and to strengthen my faith
in God's healing power.
Thank you, St. Jude,
for the promise of hope
you hold out to all who believe,
and inspire me to give
the gift of hope to others
as it has been given to me.

Amen

Of course I will pray for you. So many are in the same position right now. Hang in there!

please pray for me, i have been in a relationship with a man for the last 2.5 years, we love each other deeply, but he feels there is something stopping him from making the commitment i deserve and therefore wants to end it so as not to waste my time. i have been in many other relationships but i believe this is the man i am meant to be with. everything about the relationship feels right; the best way i can describe it is like "coming home" As i know that there is no situation God cannot overturn, my prayer request is that the Lord gives him the strength and encouragement to think positive about making a commitment to me and to see that our future will be full of love, respect, and trust for each other.

Pray for Julie Stoner. She is a school teacher forced to take an unpaid leave of absence to battle cancer. Her fight has left her weak and scared. I know St. Jude will shine his light of love on her and help her to move forward to a life healed from cancer and free from worries.
