I adore You, Lord and Creator,
hidden in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
I adore You for all the works of Your hands,
that reveal to me so much wisdom,
goodness and mercy, O Lord.
You have spread so much beauty over the earth
and it tells me about Your beauty,
even though these beautiful things are but a faint reflection of You,
And although You have hidden Yourself
and concealed Your beauty,
my eye, enlightened by faith,
reaches You and my soul recognizes its Creator,
its Highest Good,
and my heart is completely immersed in prayer of adoration.
My Lord and Creator,
Your goodness encourages me to converse with You.
Your mercy abolishes the chasm which separates
the Creator from the creature.
To converse with You, O Lord,
is the delight of my heart.
In You I find everything that my heart could desire.
Here Your light illumines my mind,
enabling it to know You more and more deeply.
Here streams of graces flow down upon my heart.
Here my soul draws eternal life.
O my Lord and Creator,
You alone, beyond all these gifts,
give Your own self to me
and unite Yourself intimately with Your miserable creature.
let my greatest delight be to see You loved
and Your praise and glory proclaimed,
especially the honor of Your mercy.
let me glorify Your goodness and mercy to the last moment of my life,
with every drop of my blood and every beat of my heart.
Would that I be transformed into a hymn of adoration of You.
When I find myself on my deathbed,
may the last beat of my heart be a loving hymn
glorifying Your unfathomable mercy.
A soul arms itself by prayer for all kinds of combat.
In whatever state the soul may be, it ought to pray.
A soul which is pure and beautiful must pray, or else it will lose its beauty;
a soul which is striving after this purity must pray,
or else it will never attain it;
a soul which is newly converted must pray,
or else it will fall again; a sinful soul, plunged in sins,
must pray so that it might rise again.
There is no soul which is not bound to pray,
for every single grace comes to the soul through prayer.
Who filled Your handmaid Sister Faustina
with profound veneration for Your boundless Mercy,
design, if it be Your holy will,
to grant me, through her intercession
the grace for which I fervently pray...
[State your intention here...]
My sins render me unworthy of Your mercy,
but be mindful of Blessed Faustina's spirit
of sacrifice and self-denial,
and reward her virtue by granting the petition which,
with childlike confidence,
I present to You through her intercession.
Blessed Faustina, pray for us.
You told us that your mission would continue after your death
and that you would not forget us.
Our Lord also granted you a great privilege,
telling you to "distribute graces as you will, to who you will, and when you will."
Relying on this, we ask your intercession for the graces we need,
especially for the intentions just mentioned.
Help us, above all, to trust in Jesus as you did
and thus to glorify His mercy every moment of our lives.
I fly to Your Mercy,
Compassionate God, Who alone are good.
Although my misery is great and my offenses are many,
I trust in Your Mercy because You are the God of Mercy,
and it has never been heard of in all ages,
nor do Heaven or Earth remember,
that a soul trusting in Your Mercy has been disappointed.
[State your intentions]
Friend of a lonely heart,
You are my haven.
You are my peace.
You are my salvation.
You are my serenity in moments of struggle and amidst an ocean of doubts. Amen.
Using ordinary rosary beads, do as follows:
In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
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.
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You! (repeat 3 times).
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 the 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.
Hail Mary, full of grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amoung women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and the hour of our death. Amen.
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.
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.
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and the whole world.
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless, the treasure of compassion inexhastible, 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. Amen.
