Novena to saint Jude, patron saint of the impossible


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 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 ( here make 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.

Our Father
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Please pray offer your Intentions to the Gloripus St Jude who interceded for us during our times of despair when we call upon him. Please keep my private intentions in your prayers too


The Novena is fine to pray, but having to publish a novena for X number of days is considered a “chain prayer” superstition and not permitted on the forum.
I have changed the thread title so prayer can stay.
