Let Us Pray
Most Holy Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of his enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you, as the special advocate of those who are in trouble and without hope. Help me to realize that through our faith, we triumph over life’s difficulties by the power of Jesus, who loved us and gave his life for us. Intercede with God on my behalf, that he brings me hope in my sorrow, courage in my fear, and healing in the midst of my challenges especially, (make your request). Thank you St. Jude, for the promise of hope you hold, to all who believe. Inspire me to give the gift of hope to others, and help me to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.
