A prayer to St. Jude, to fight depression

St. Jude, friend to those in need,

I am weary from grief, without joy,

without hope,

struggling to find the light I know is in my soul.

I turn to you, my most trusted intercessor.

Take away this emptiness and the pain of my broken heart.

In your compassion,

help my tears to lead me to a place of peace in my heart.

Too long have I forgotten the goodness of God’s world.

Heal me. I yearn to feel light, to feel joy.

Envelop me in brightness, and do not hold back.

And I promise, if I receive these gifts, I will share them always in your name.

Amen.
