Petitioning Saint Jude for Hope, Healing, and Health
Discover how Saint Jude, the patron saint of lost causes, can help with hopeless situations. From healing to love and finances, his aid is powerful.
Saint Jude was chosen by Jesus to be one of His twelve apostles, which means he was one of the closest companions and followers of Jesus during His earthly ministry.
Saint Jude has become associated with being the patron saint of desperate and difficult situations. Many people turn to him in prayer, seeking his intercession in times of great need, challenges, or seemingly hopeless circumstances.
Light our green 7 Day Saint Jude devotional candle (vela de San Judas) to petition the patron saint of the impossible. Use this prayer candle to ask for help with your most urgent of problems, for healing, and to gain wisdom. For extra strength place a few drops of our Saint Jude Oil on top of the candle while it burns.
O most holy apostle, Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases and of things despaired of. Pray for me, for I am so helpless and alone. Please help to bring me visible and speedy assistance. 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 (mention your specific intention here), and that I may praise God with you always. I promise, O blessed Saint Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor granted me by God and to always honor you as my special and powerful patron and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.
