How to Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet
Begin with the Sign Of The Cross.
On the first bead, pray one Our Father.
On the three small beads, pray one Hail Mary each.
On the last leading bead, say the Apostles' Creed.
On each Our Father (Pater) bead, say this 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 Hail Mary small bead, say this prayer:
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy
on us and on the whole world.
This closing prayer is repeated 3 times:
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have
mercy on us and on the whole world.
Concluding Prayer (Optional):
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.
