Most Holy Apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of difficult cases, of things almost despaired of, pray for me. I am so helpless and alone. Intercede to God for me that He brings 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 saints forever.
I promise, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor granted to me by God and to always honor you as my special and powerful patron and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.
