Prayer to end misery


O most holy apostle, Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus,

Pray for me, who am so miserable. Make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded to thee, to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, end my 13th years of misery especially my lacking of cash to surive for the day. I used to go through the day without a dollar in my purse. I am ashamed to be close to God with this problem in my life. I love to have a house of my own where I can share the goodness of God with my friends. I can paid my debts and still have more to spend such as the loaves and fish which Jesus had shared. Then with the happy heart, I would praise God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity.

I promise thee, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favour, to always honour thee as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to thee. Amen.
