Novena to St. Jude -- Day 1

I have a friend who has a sister that is newly married and has been in the hospital for over a month now that the doctor's can't find out what is wrong with her. I decided to pray a novena to St. Jude on her behalf. She needs to get better.

Dear Apostle and Martyr for Christ, you left us an Epistle in the New Testament. With good reason many invoke you when illness is at a desperate stage. We now recommend to your kindness, Christy, who is in a critical condition. May the cure of this patient increase his/her faith and love for the Lord of Life, for the glory of our merciful God. Amen.

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 Christy, She feels so helpless and alone.
Intercede with God for Christy that He bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to her assistance in this great need that she may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all her necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly -

I pray for Tracy's sister, Christy, in that God guides the doctors to what is wrong wtih her and that she can be treated easily and I pray for God's healing for her. She is newly married and her family is very worried about her. Please give her the grace to be healed so that she can get back home to her new husband and be with her sisters and family again.

- 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 Christy by God and to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.

May the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, and loved in all the tabernacles until the end of time. Amen.

May the most Sacred Heart of Jesus be praised and glorified now and forever. Amen

St. Jude pray for us and hear our prayers. Amen.

Blessed be the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Blessed be the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Blessed be St. Jude Thaddeus, in all the world and for all Eternity.

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,
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 death.
