A Prayer to St. Jude Thaddeus

Most Holy Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of his enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors you, and I invoke you as the special advocate of those who are in trouble and almost without hope. Help me to realize that through our faith we triumph over lifes difficulties by the power of Jesus who gave his life for us. Come to my assistance that I may receive the consolation and succor of heaven in all my needs, trials, and sufferings, particularly (here make your request) and that I may praise God with you and all the saints forever.

In the Roman Catholic tradition, a novena is a series of prayers which are said over the course of nine days. The goal of going through a novena is to ask for grace, and to deepen one's spiritual connection with God. Although the practice of the novena originated in the Catholic community, similar prayers are also said in other Christian sects.

A novena may be said for oneself, usually as a request for assistance of some form or another, or on behalf of someone else. A classic example of a novena is a prayer asking for a sick relative to be healed. In devout communities, people may say novenas for strangers, or say “I'll make a novena for you” upon hearing of someone else's troubles.

Here is my favorite traditional novena prayed for 9 days:

 God, come save me. Lord, make haste to help me.
