St. Jude, you witnessed
the healing power of our Lord Jesus.
You saw His compassion
for the sick and dying.
You yourself touched the sick,
shared the sorrows of the mournful,
and encouraged the despairing.
You received this authority
and healing power to work wonders,
to cure the incurable,
to make people whole.
We ask you to intercede with our brother, Jesus,
to send His saving grace to heal the sickness
and suffering of __________________,
to uplift his/her despondent spirit,
and to instill hope in his/her heart.
