At times when I'm feeling the most anxious about situations, I turn to prayer. Everyday, it's some form of meditation that puts me at peace. I'd like to share a prayer to St. Jude that helps me in desperate times.
Most holy apostle st. jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus. The church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases of things almost despaired of. Pray for me I am so helpless and alone. Make use I implore you of that particular privilege given to you to 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 -(here make your request)- that I may praise God with you and all the elect forever.
I promise oh blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor. To always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.
I say this prayer 9 times for nine days. On the ninth day, your prayer will be answered. The answer to your prayer is not always what you request, but what God believes you need.
