How to pray the Divine Mercy chaplet

Pray this nine-day chaplet often recited using rosary beads with five decades.

1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, one Our Father, one Hail Mary and The Apostles Creed.

2. On the Our Father Beads say the following: 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.

3. On the 10 Hail Mary Beads say the following: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

4. Repeat No. 2 and No. 3 for each of the decades.

5. Conclude by praying three times: Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

6. Closing 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.
