How to Pray The Chaplet of Divine Mercy



1. Make the Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


2. Optional Opening Prayers

You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of

mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine

Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.

(Repeat three times) 

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of

Mercy for us, I trust in You!


3. 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.


4. Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst 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.


5. The Apostle's 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; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into

heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there He

will 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. Amen.


6. The Eternal Father

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.


7. On the Ten Small Beads of Each Decade

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


8. Repeat for the remaining decades

Saying the "Eternal Father" (6) on the "Our Father" bead and then 10 "For the sake

of His sorrowful Passion" (7) on the following "Hail Mary" beads.


9. Conclude with Holy God (Repeat three times)

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the

whole world.


10. Optional 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.
