Shrine of St Faustina of the Divine Mercy
Prayer before a Crucifix +++ Psalm 63
O God, you are my God, and I long for you. My whole being desires you; like a
dry, worn-out, and waterless land, my soul is thirsty for you. Let me see you in
the sanctuary; let me see how mighty and glorious you are.
+++Your constant love is better than life itself, and so I will praise you. I will
give you thanks as long as I live; I will raise my hands to you in prayer. My soul
will feast and be satisfied, and I will sing glad songs of praise to you. As I lie in
bed, I remember you; all night long I think of you, because you have always
been my help. In the shadow of your wings I sing for joy. I cling to you, and your
hand keeps me safe.
+++Those who are trying to kill me will go down into the world of the dead. They
will be killed in battle, and their bodies eaten by wolves. Because God gives him
victory, the king will rejoice. Those who make promises in God's name will
praise him, but the mouths of liars will be shut.
Prayer to St Paul the Apostle:
St. Paul, you traveled the world, never quite
knowing where the Spirit would lead you next.
You journeyed in faith and accepted beatings,
imprisonment, shipwreck, and ultimately
execution because of your faith in Jesus Christ.
Help me to accept the great adventure of leading
a life faithful to the words of Jesus my Master,
the Way, the Truth and the Life. May I ask
myself, “Where does God want me to go today?”
On the journey, may I love in the way you taught
the Corinthians (1 Cor. 13), and be willing to
endure all things for the sake of the Gospel.
Pray with me, that I may heed the voice of the
One who called you on the road to Damascus,
and set you on the path that leads to life. Amen.
(Our Lord showed St. Gertrude a vast number of souls leaving Purgatory and going to Heaven as a result
of this prayer, which the Saint was accustomed to say frequently during the day.)
Prayer of St. Gertrude the Great for the poor souls in Purgatory and sinners.
"ETERNAL FATHER, I OFFER THEE THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THY DIVINE SON, JESUS,
IN UNION WITH THE MASSES SAID THROUGHOUT THE WORLD TODAY, FOR ALL THE HOLY SOULS IN
PURGATORY, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those in my own home and
within my family. Amen.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy
protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come,
before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
Most Holy Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - I adore thee
profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and
Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in
reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences whereby He is
offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and
the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor
O Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore
You. Enlighten me, guide me, strengthen
me, console me. Tell me what I should do;
give me Your orders. I promise to submit
myself to all that You desire of me and to
accept all that You permit to happen to
me. Let me only know Your Will.
Patience Prayer to St. Paul
O glorious St. Paul, who from a persecutor of Christianity, did become a most ardent
apostle of zeal; and who to make known the Saviour Jesus Christ to the ends of the world did
suffer with joy, imprisonment, scourging, stonings, shipwrecks and persecutions of every
kind, and in the end did shed your blood to the last drop, obtain for us the grace to receive,
as favors of the Divine Mercy, infirmities, tribulations, and mistfortunes of the present
life, so that the vicissitudes of this our exile will not render us cold in the service of God,
but will render us always more faithful and fervent. Amen.
When a soul praises My goodness, Satan trembles before it
and flees to the very bottom of hell. (Diary 378)
St Clare, You were called by our heavenly Father through the voice of St Francis to become a
radiant presence to your own time and to all ages. In your light I can see more clearly that God
is trustworthy and will never fail anyone who relies on Him.
Pray for me to have a confident heart, like your own, no matter what difficulties assail me or my
loved ones (your intentions). May I be as secure in the truth that God loves me and will always
take care of me and those I love as you were. St Clare, my sister in faith, pray for me. Amen.
My God, I believe, I adore, I
hope, and I love You. I ask
pardon for those who do not
believe, do not adore, do not
hope, and do not love You.
