    Hi
    I was given a St Jude Novena a while ago. St Jude is one of Jesus’ disciples and is the patron Saint of the helpless and hopeless. Apparantly, your prayer may not be granted immediately in all cases, and in some cases it may be granted in a different form. However, it is said that, if you believe and you are patient, your prayer is always answered.
    I have tried this Novena several times for various circumstances and it has always worked. I published the Novena by sending it to my friends. I was wondering whether other people have used this Novena and, if so, what results they obtained. The Novena is below, in the form it was given to me.
    St Jude Novena
    May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus have mercy on us. St Jude, help of the hopeless, pray for us.
    Say this prayer for 9 days. By the 8th day your prayer will be answered. It has never failed. Publication must be promised. Thank you Jesus.

    I moved this from introductions to the Catholic section. Most folks who are not Catholic will have no idea what you are talking about.

    I’ve seen these ads in newspapers, and I don’t know what the deal is, but people feel they have to post things to St. Jude in print – so for what it is worth, consider it posted. I sure do not want to have a steady string of thanks for favors granted showing up here though, at least not without an explanation of what is the idea behind it.

    I have prayed to St. Jude in my desperate times for 14 years and yes, it does work. It’s not magic, it’s prayer, and it becomes meditative as well, bringing a sense of peace and time to thoroughly think through what is happening in your life And had I not seen in my local newspaper, I wouldn’t have known about it, even though I am Catholic. I also know that non-Catholic Christians have seen it in newspapers and used it. The whole reason for publishing the novena prayer or even just the thanks to St. Jude is to give more people the opportunity to learn about it.[quote=Marmic]Hi

    Yes it does truly work. St Jude has helped me in so many ways through interceding to God. He has ensured the safe and quick arrival of my payment made overseas where i sent a bank draft and the delivery of my parcel too. He has also helped me overcome my recent fear of presenting in front of the whole class ever since i messed up previously stumbling over my words, forgetting my lines and going blank in front of everyone, which also resulted in a C grade. However, after that presentation, another one came along and fearing the same things would happen, i prayed to him to intercede to God to let that upcoming presentation be well and to give me back my confidence. In the end, not only had i presented loudly, clearly and fluently, but also my confidence came back and my friend and his friends even said i did so professionally. Most important of all, i did not even get nervous, stumbled over my words nor blanked out! St Jude has also helped me get closer to my classmates by giving us opportunities to build our friendship.

    Thank you St. Jude for interceding on my behalf and to God for hearing my prayers.

    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

    Say three Our Fathers, three Hail Marys and three Glorias

    This novena has never been known to fail.

    Our Father:
    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. Amen.

    Hail Mary:
    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.

    I think prayers with faith usually work
    O most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity. O Star of the Sea, help me and show me herein that you are my Mother.
    O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart, to succor me in this my necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. O show me herein that you are my Mother.
    O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us that have recourse to thee. (3 times)
    Sweet Mother, I place this cause in your hands. (3 times)

    “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 request) 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 this prayer for nine days for anything you may desire. Then let go and let God. Trust that whatever is the outcome of your novena is truly what is best for you in accordance with the will of God.)
    O Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
    O Saint Joseph, assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
    O Saint Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. Amen
    O Saint Joseph, hear my prayers and obtain my petitions. O Saint Joseph, pray for me. (Mention your intention)

    I agree that the novena to St. Jude is indeed effective. But let all be remindedthat God answers our prayers ‘in His own time.’ He has a reason for eveything.

    [QUOTE][/QUOTE] I believe that St Jude Novena works. But I think we all have to be patient. I am not sure what God has planned for my family but I know that I need to have faith and trust in him. We are saying the Novena to St Jude and asking him to help my husband so that he doesnt lose his job. Our whole family says it every night, and I think it is good for the kids to see our struggles and our faith in prayer and God. We say the following Novena. Holy St. Judge, apostle and martyer, great in virture and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ and faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need. To you I have recourse from the depths of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present and urgent petition. In return I prmise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. Saint Jude pray for us and all who invoke your aid.
    Follow this with 3 Hail Marys and 3 Glory Be’s and say it for 9 days. Have faith in God and believe in the power of prayer.

    Yes, absolutely no doubt, St Jude has answered my concern in the 9th day during the Novena period.

    St. Jude’s Novena

    “May the Sacred Heart of Jesus
    be Adored, Glorified, Loved & Preserved
    through-out the world, now & forever.
    Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
    Saint Jude, Worker of miracles, pray for us.
    Saint Jude, Helper of the Hopeless, pray for us.”
    Say the prayer 8 times a day for 9 days.
    It has never been known to fail.
    Publication must be promised.

    I live here in the Philippines. Honestly, we believe so bad and we have a strong faith with St Jude. Infact, most of our nurses here in our country are really devoted to him. As per my personal experience, I am really happy whenever, I am in St Jude’s chapel. But since it is far from us now, I cant visit his church anymore. I hope I get to see and check him soon.

    Really? I’ve been praying to St. Jude, Jesus, God, Mary, the saints, and on and on with no answer ever since my husband got since and passed away. I prayed for him to get well, I prayed that I would be a decent single parent, I prayed that my daughter would turn out ok, I prayed that i would get some help financially, i prayed that I would at least find someone to take me for an effin hamburger once in a while and guess what? In all of the above cases the answer was no. My life has been a nitemare and continues to be so please spare me the “it really works” – i would publish the prayer 5000 times a day if something, anything would go my way – the only think i haven’t tried is slitting my wrists which may actually work.
