How To Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet If you are using a rosary: Start on the Crucifix and pray an Our Father, a Hail Mary and the Apostles' Creed. Skip ahead to the centerpiece and pray 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." You will say this same prayer on each Our Father bead. On each Hail Mary bead pray the following: "For the sake of His sorrowful passion have mercy on us and on the whole world." On the last Our Father bead, pray the following prayer three times: "Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world." Imprimatur: November 17, 1979, Joseph F. Maguire, Bishop of Springfield, MA.
