Chaplet of Divine Mercy # 2

How to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

Using the 59 beads Marian Rosary, begin with the:
Sign Of The Cross,

followed by 1 Our Father,

1 Hail Mary,

and the Apostles’ Creed

Starting on the medal, say the following prayer:

“Eternal Father,
I offer You the Body and Blood,
Soul and Divinity of Your dearly Beloved Son,
Our Lord Jesus Christ,
in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.”

On each of the 10 beads that follow, say the following prayer:

“For the sake of His sorrowful Passion,
have mercy on us and on the whole world.”

On each of the individual beads that separate the sets of 10 beads, repeat the prayer “Eternal Father… (above).” Then on each set of 10 beads, repeat the prayer “For the sake…” (above).

You then conclude with the following prayer 3 times:

“Holy God, Holy Mighty One,
Holy Immortal One,
have mercy on us
and on the whole world.”

Optional Concluding Prayer:

“Eternal God,
in whom mercy is endless
and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible,
look kindly upon us
and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments
we might not despair nor become despondent,
but with great confidence
submit ourselves to Your holy will,
which is Love and Mercy itself.”

What is prayer?

Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God.

Let us lift up our hearts with our hands to the Lord in the heavens. (Lamentations 3:41)

How do we know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly?

We know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly because Our Lord has promised: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, in order that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)

Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?

We do not always obtain what we pray for, either because we have not prayed properly or because God sees that what we are asking would not be for our good.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your passions. (James 4:3)

Prayer from the Baltimore Catechism
