Before beginning this Novena, first read it over and absorb what you will be saying. Then gather your thoughts and choose the specific words that you will be using to ask for your special request or intention.
For a more enriching experience, go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
For hopeless cases as in despair or aloneness: This Novena will be asking you to pray the 1) Our Father, 2) Hail Mary, 3) Glory Be To The Father. These 3 prayers are listed below. Keep scrolling down and then you'll see the Novena to St. Jude. If your circumstances feel or seem hopeless and discouraging, this is the Novena for you. This prayer asks that you promise to publish the prayer afterward in order to share with others.
OUR FATHER - "LORD'S PRAYER"
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the Kingdom, the Glory and the Power forever. Amen
Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
NOVENA TO ST. JUDE - EXAMPLE 3
(pray for 9 days or 9 hours straight)
"O most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, people honor and invoke you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, for I am so helpless and alone. Please help to bring me visible and speedy assistance. 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 (state your specific request or intention here!)and that I may praise God with you always.
"I promise, O 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 by publishing this request. Amen."
Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys and 3 Glory be to God.
