PRAYER TO ST. JUDE
St. Jude, friend to those in need,
I am weary from grief,
without joy, without hope,
struggling through the dark night of the soul.
I turn to you, my most trusted friend.
Take away this emptiness and the pain of my broken heart.
In your compassion, wipe away the tears
and carry me to a place of peace.
Too long have I been blind to the
goodness of God's world.
I yearn to feel, to bathe in light and joy.
Envelop me in brightness,
and do not hold back.
And I promise, if you should see me fit
to receive these gifts, I will share them always.
