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 consolation in my sorrow, courage in my fear. And healing in the midst of my suffering. Ask our loving God 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. Inspire me to give this gift of hope to others as it has been given to me. I come to you St. Jude, a sinner asking and begging you for forgiveness and freedom from my drug addiction. Please guide me St. Jude and thank you for allowing me to feel your presence during my recovery process. Please foremost, bless my loving mother that she can find peace from worrying about me night after night.
