St. Jude Thaddeus, holy apostle, courageous martyr and faithful witness to Christ, you preached the Good News of Jesus Christ to distant nations and through the power of his message brought many people to faith in Jesus. With trust in the Lord’s promise that whatever is asked in his name will be granted and with faith in the healing power of Jesus, I ask, through your intercession, for the recovery of all those who suffer from addictions, especially (name).
Obtain for (name) the strength and courage to seek the guidance and support needed to regain control of his/her life. I know how this addiction has harmed his/her physical health, damaged his/her relationships and endangered his/her spiritual wellbeing, and I realize that (name) cannot overcome it by him/herself but needs God’s help. Intercede for (name) and ask the Lord to break the chains of this addiction and restore him/her to inner peace and freedom. Amen.
