You may face challenges, especially with what's happening in the world right now. Health situations, economic crashes, and poverty have dragged many people's lives to rock bottom.
It was a hard punch right into the gut, especially regarding financial situations. But, no matter the challenges, there's always a light on every burden.
The situation of the world right now may have led people to seek God or turn away from him. It may be unfortunate to hear these situations, but you can only trust in the judgment and mercy of the Lord towards everyone.
If you have tried everything to rise above financial crisis, God is with you always, and you can pray for challenging times through the intercession of St. Jude Thaddeus, Patron Saint of the Desperate Cases and Lost Causes.
Now the question is, who is St. Jude Thaddeus? And why do people pray to him?
St. Jude Thaddeus was born to a Jewish family in Paneas, a town in Galilee. The same region where Jesus grew up.
His name Jude means “giver of joy,” while Thaddeus means “generous and kind.” St. Jude has several brothers, including St. James the Apostle.
He is described as “brethren” (blood-related) or brother by Jesus Christ in Matthew (13:55), “Isn't this the carpenter's Son? Isn't his mother's name Mary, and aren't his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas?”
His Father, Cleopas, was the brother of St. Joseph, Jesus' father. So, they were not biologically brothers but were possibly cousins.
St. Jude is well known and one of the revered saints in the Catholic Church. He's one of the Twelve Apostles according to the New Testament.
One of St. Jude's missions before was to encourage people to persevere in difficult circumstances, keep their faith, and stay in the love of God. That's why as a Patron Saint of Hopeless Causes, many people venerate and pray his novenas and recite his litany.
People's devotion continued to grow until today because of prayers to St. Jude that have helped people deal with pressures in life. No matter how advanced human society is now, it is hard to find great comfort and hope once you're under incredible stress and difficulty in life.
If you are financially challenged, you can pray the Prayer to St. Jude for Urgent Financial Help, pray the Novena, recite the Litany to St. Jude, or use a personal prayer.
Through dedicating these prayers, you can place your special request for financial help and offer your gratitude before God.

Prayer to Saint Jude Thaddeus For Urgent Financial Help
Saint Jude Thaddeus,
Apostle of Christ and glorious Martyr,
great intercessor in all difficult problems.
Today I turn to you with great faith
to ask for your generous assistance
for I am afflicted and tormented
by the lack of economic means.
You who are my beloved saint,
my blessed patron and noble protector
welcome my soul and my body, my mind and heart;
I, humbly, prostrated before you, I ask
by the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary,
that you cast me a compassionate glance
and despise not my heartfelt prayer,
so my confidence be not in vain.
You who, in addition to a singular love,
were united with links of kinship to
the Divine Redeemer Jesus Christ, source of all good,
and are a powerful aid of the desperate.
Pray for me my patron saint, my aid,
so that, assisted by your precious intercession,
I may receive a prompt and efficacious solution
for my overwhelming needs.
Make it so that I can obtain urgently, needed cash
to meet all my expenses, payments, debts,
and have peace of mind and tranquility.
Make it so, I beg you, with the certainty of being heard,
that I obtain what I need so much
(Ask for everything that you want to attain. Set your intention.)
Blessed Saint Jude,
I honor you with special affection and devotion,
hand me the presence and strength of God.
Protect me in all circumstances,
may your help and consolation never cease.
Obtain for me by the grace of the Lord Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
deliverance, prosperity, work and health;
make it so that well-being is installed in my home.
As an expression of my affection and gratitude,
I promise you I will promote an authentic devotion to you
and already from this moment,
I infinitely give you thanks for all your favors.
So be it.
The Apostles' Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
[Recite the Our Father for three times]
The Our Father
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.
[Recite the Hail Mary for three times]
The Hail Mary
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 our death. Amen.
[Recite the Glory Be three times]
The Glory Be
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Amen.
