Need a Miracle? Here’s St. Jude’s Powerful Prayer for Desperate & Hopeless Cases

Have you ever asked St. Jude for prayers?

St. Jude, also known as St. Jude Thaddaeus, was one of Christ’s 12 apostles. He also wrote the Epistle of St. Jude.

Not much is recorded about this apostle, however, there is some evidence that both St. Jude and St. James the Less are cousins to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

It is said that Jesus appeared to St. Bernard of Clairvaux,  asking him “to accept St. Jude as ‘The Patron Saint of the Impossible.’”

Jesus also told St. Bridget to dedicate an altar in her church to St. Jude. Jesus said, “The fifth altar…must be for Thaddeus who with the purity of his heart will undoubtedly conquer the devil.”

The Church celebrates St. Jude’s feast day on Oct. 28. He is the patron of impossible, desperate, and hopeless cases.

Prayer to St. Jude, Patron of Impossible, Desperate, & Hopeless Cases

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 with God for me
that He 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…

(make your request here)

…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 me by God
and to always honor you
as my special and powerful patron,
and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.


May the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored and loved in all the tabernacles until the end of time. Amen.

May the most Sacred Heart of Jesus be praised and glorified now and forever. Amen

St. Jude, pray for us and hear our prayers. Amen.

Blessed be the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Blessed be the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Blessed be St. Jude Thaddeus, in all the world and for all Eternity. 

(say this prayer, followed by the Our Father and the Hail Mary)

Dear Apostle and Martyr for Christ,
you left us an Epistle in the New Testament.
With good reason many invoke you
when illness is at a desperate stage.
We now recommend to your kindness (name of patient), who is in a critical condition.
May the cure of this patient increase his/her faith and love for the Lord of Life,
for the glory of our merciful God.
