  How to Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

On a regular Rosary Pray:

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

Start with One Our Father, One Hail Mary and the Apostles Creed.
                    The 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.

                      The 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.

                  The Apostles 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.
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 thence He shall 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.

On each large bead pray:

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 ten small beads pray on each bead:

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

Conclude with; pray three times:

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