Prayer for application to the Holy Spirit
You who solve all problems, who light all roads so that I can attain my goals.  You who give the divine gift to forgive and forget all the evil against me.  And that in all instances of my life you are with me.  I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things and to confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you ever and in spite of all material illusion I wish to be with you in eternal glory.  Thank you for your mercy toward me and mine. – LRB, TBP
This prayer must be said for three consecutive days. After three days, the favor requested will be granted. Even if it appears difficult. This prayer must be published immediately without mentioning of the favor. Only your initials should appear at the bottom.

Novena to St. Jude Thaddeus
O Holy St. Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor for all who invoke your special patronage in time of need; to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present urgent petition. In return, I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked, say three Our Fathers, three Hail Marys and three Glory Be’s. Publication must be promised. St. Jude, pray for us and all who invoke your aid. Amen. This novena has never been known to fail. I have had my request granted. This novena must be said for nine consecutive days. Thank you St. Jude. – MC

Novena to St. Jude Thaddeus
