Prayed as follows:
St. Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the true Church invokes you universally as the Patron of things despaired of; pray for me, that finally I may receive the consolation and the succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (here make your request), and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. Amen.

A Hail Mary is recited on each bead with the following invocation:

St. Jude, Apostle, martyr and relative of Our Lord Jesus Christ, of Mary and of Joseph, intercede for us.

"The prayer to St. Jude is to be said when problems arise or when one seems to be deprived of all visible help, or for cases almost despaired of. You do not need a chaplet to say this prayer.
