When you find yourself in a difficult situation, pray for St. Jude's powerful intercession.

Over the years St. Jude has become the patron of hopeless cases. Many souls have prayed for his intercession and have witnessed miracles in response to their prayers.

While a miracle is not guaranteed, when praying in faith and trust in God, anything is possible.

Here is a common novena prayer to St. Jude, designed to be prayed over a period of nine consecutive days.

Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally, as the patron of difficult cases, of things almost despaired of, Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone.
Intercede with God for me that He 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 –
(make your request here)
– and that I may praise God with you and all the saints forever. I promise, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor granted me by God and to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.
Amen
