Make the Sign of the Cross
In the name of Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Call on St. Jude to pray with you
“Most holy St. Jude – apostle, martyr, and friend of Jesus, today I ask that you pray for me and the intentions I now share …”
Name your intentions
Now, you call to mind or say aloud why you are praying this novena. You can choose one intention to pray with for the entire nine days, or you can name a different one each day of prayer.
Whether it is a physical, mental, or spiritual struggle you or a loved one endures, you can name these intentions of your heart in prayer.
Pray the St. Jude novena prayer
“St. Jude, you are the patron of the impossible. Pray for me and my intentions! O St. Jude, pray that God’s grace and mercy will cover my intentions. Pray for the impossible if it is God’s will.
Pray that I may have the grace to accept God’s holy will even if it is painful and difficult for me.”
