The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy

1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and The Apostles Creed.
2. Then 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.
(Repeat step 2 and 3 for all five decades).
4. Conclude with (three times)
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
In 1933, God gave Sister Faustina a striking vision of His Mercy, 
Sister tells us:
'I saw a great light, with God the Father in the midst of it. 
Between this light and the earth I saw Jesus nailed to the Cross 
and in such a way that God, wanting to look upon the earth, had to 
look through Our Lord's wounds and I understood that God blessed 
the earth for the sake of Jesus. '
Of another vision on Sept. 13, 1935, she writes:
'I saw an Angel, the executor of God's wrath... about to strike 
the earth... I began to beg God earnestly for the world with words 
which I heard interiorly. As I prayed in this way, I saw the 
Angel's helplessness, and he could not carry out the just 
punishment... . '
The following day an inner voice taught her to say this prayer on 
ordinary rosary beads:
'First say one 'Our Father', 'Hail Mary', and 'I believe'. Then on 
the large beads say the following words:
'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 the smaller beads you are to say the following words:
'For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us and on the 
whole world. '
In conclusion you are to say these words three times:
'Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us 
and on the whole world'.
Jesus said later to Sister Faustina:
'Say unceasingly this chaplet that I have taught you. Anyone who 
says it will receive great Mercy at the hour of death. Priests 
will recommend it to sinners as the last hope. Even the most 
hardened sinner, if he recites this Chaplet even once, will 
receive grace from My Infinite Mercy. I want the whole world to 
know My Infinite Mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to 
those who trust in My Mercy... . '
'... . When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I 
will stand between My Father and the dying person not as the just 
judge but as the Merciful Savior'.
