St Jude NovenaI hope you have a great and blessed day today! It’s the Feast of St. Jude!

I have one final prayer I’d like you to pray with me and over 6,000 others praying here. I also want to share with you some of the answered prayers from this novena!

But first, I want to share with you something that was posted on the site. I think it is very insightful…

“I did not want to post my intentions here but I do want to share with you that on day 8 I received a solution to one of my impossible situations. It did not come in the way that I wanted or expected and at first I was a bit unhappy with how it was resolved but then I remembered that part of this novena was to accept God’s will and His plan even if, and especially when your pride takes a knock. So I thank God for His response to my intention and I eagerly look forward to how His plan will unfold for my life because it is always better than what I envisioned. Praise God and thank you St. Jude for your intercession.” – Gillian

Sometimes God answers our prayers in ways different than we want. Sometimes He answers them later, much later. Sometimes it seems to us that He doesn’t answer them at all.

The important thing to remember is that God loves you and wants to bless you. So, whether you think all your prayers were answered or not, keep looking for God’s blessings in your life!

Ok, now for that last prayer!

Dear Lord Jesus, I have specific requests that may only partially fill the infinite needs and desires that are in my heart. I ask that You answer not only for those requests but also for a greater reliance on You to satisfy the needs and desires that I have.

Please grant the prayers of all those who prayed this novena with me. Bless them with Your love and make them holy!

May I seek You with a sincere heart knowing that it will profit me nothing if I gain the whole world yet lose my soul.

So, help me to see Your good and gracious purpose in all my trials. Help me to see Your blessings in every day and help me to love You more.

Thank You for everything!


Thanks again for praying with me!

God bless you!

  1. When I started praying the novena, I had asked St Jude to open the doors for me- praying that where I had applied would ask me to work with them . The job was perfect! I was afraid my part time position would be ending. I was called in for the first interview, then the second interview- during the novena. In the meantime, a current opening went up at my present position. I am so confused. I don’t know if I am being led on a path that is different than what I am praying for. Deep in my heart, I would like the place I applied to – but they are not calling back . So I need to continue to pray to St. Jude to lift this anxiety- I don’t know which way to go.

  2. St Jude, please help me in my time of need. I am going through a lot of stress especially with this upcoming assessment, which I feel that I am not ready for. I have a lot going through my mind and I continue to pray for your intercession and help. Continue to pray for that petition that I have been praying for all these months. I appreciate all that you can do for me, I’m trying my hardest to be patient since its been very long. Please continue to help me St Jude. Help me get these competencies, and to pass this year without anymore trouble. Amen

  3. Dear St. Jude, happy feast day! Today is my first day of joining. Im inspired by all those people who signed in and have their prayers answered…St. Jude,please help me with financial problem too that everything be solved and my citizinship that i can apply for it…good health for my family too and my baby…not well at the moment please heal him, please help him to get better.. please help. amen

  4. St. Jude, thank you so much for working in my life and in the lives of those that I prayed for, especially my brother because he has begun to pray the rosary.

  5. Thank you St. Jude! I don’t know how my impossible situation will ultimately be resolved, but over the course of the novena my stress level dropped significantly and I have faith that it will all work out and we will manage. This is a huge improvement over the sleepless nights and stress before asking for your intercession. Thank you!

  6. Thank you for this novena to St. Jude! Thank you St. Jude!! Our prayer was answered and my dad got a job right after the novena!!!!

  7. St. Jude’s intercession answered my recent novena prayers to heal the vision problems of a dear friend. She just called me today to tell me, “I can see!!” Praise to God!!!!!!
    St. Jude you are a wonderful intercessor! Thanks be to God!!!!!

  8. Dearest Saint Jude,

    Today, All Saints Day, I give thanks to you. I am appreciative of the assistance you have provided during trial and tribulation, and I honor you as my patron saint. Thank you for your intercession. Saint Jude, apostle and preacher of the Good News of Jesus Christ, we thank God for choosing you for this glorious mission. You saw Jesus face to face, walked and talked with Him, and served Him without counting the cost.

    I will encourage devotion to you always.

  9. Thank You St. Jude for praying on our behalf. Please thank Jesus and our heavenly father for answered prayers regarding my daughter’s healing process. Also we have not gotten a definite answer on the house, but we will on Monday and I know God’s will will prevail. I have faith that the best outcome will happen. All my love and gratitude to the Father, son, and the holy host, and you beloved St. Jude.


  10. Thank you for listening St. Jude Thaddeus – my petitions are so in significant and miniscule comapared to others who are in such desperate need of your intercession, for their health, food, jobs, relationships, etc.. – They should come first, for i feel very blessed in many ways. Thank you for the peace i feel at this moment. Wishing i could hug you….(sigh)..

    Believing in you, In Jesus name – Amen
