This unfailing prayer to St. Jude, apostle and martyr, is widely used for a variety of desperate situations.

The unfailing prayer to St. Jude has a long tradition in the Catholic Church, especially for those who seek the intercession of the patron saint of hopeless causes.

It is a prayer that must be prayed with absolute trust in God, that he will answer your prayer in the manner that he decides, according to his divine will.

St. Jude has built up a reputation over the centuries for his heavenly intercession, and he responds generously to those who pray with faith and not superstition.

Here is the unfailing prayer to St. Jude that many turn to in their time of need.

O Holy St. Jude!
Apostle and Martyr,
great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ,
faithful intercessor for all who invoke you,
special patron in time of need;
to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart,
and humbly beg you,
to whom God has given such great power,
to come to my assistance;
help me now in my urgent need and grant my earnest petition.
I will never forget thy graces and favors you obtain for me
and I will do my utmost to spread devotion to you.
Amen
.

St. Jude, pray for us and all who honor thee and invoke thy aid.
