The contemplation of the suffering of Jesus is one of the most beautiful forms of prayer. The Church offers us a great weapon to overcome our pain by giving us access to the cross in which Jesus suffered and died for us. Do you suffer from your sins or some other affliction? Then ask yourself this question: “Am I willing to offer my suffering up during this Lent season?” If so, here are some words that may help you:
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
St. Faustina’s Prayer to Be Merciful
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
To be understood as to understand;
To be understood as to understand;
I pray that God will give me this special grace to understand others, because it is a great gift. If you understand yourself, you can accept your own weaknesses and your own imperfections. It is difficult for us Christians to accept our weaknesses and mistakes because of pride. But if we are humble enough to see ourselves as God sees us, then we can accept ourselves and our mistakes without feeling shame or guilt.
Think about how much God loves us even though he knows all about what we do wrong! It’s an amazing thing when someone understands us—a blessing given freely by God himself through the gift of understanding others…
To be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; It is in dying for our brothers and sisters that we are born to eternal life.
This prayer challenges us to live a life of mercy and compassion fostered by self-giving love. This prayer helps us reflect on the fact that love is the most important thing in life, whether it comes from God or from mankind. We need to learn how to love ourselves, how to love others and also how we can give ourselves away so as not only get what we want but also pour out our hearts into others’ lives.
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
Now, the following prayer is one of the most beautiful and important prayers in the Chaplet of Divine Mercy:
O Lord Jesus Christ, who said to Thine apostle, James: “I shall grant mercy unto whom I will; and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion” (St. Matthew 20:15). Look down upon me with an eye of mercy and offer me Thy salvation; for Thou alone art gracious and worthy of all praise! Grant that I may know Thee as my Redeemer who lovest me without measure; for only this knowledge can save my soul from perishing under Thy wrath; for Thou art full of goodness towards us, O Christ our God! Forgive us our sins committed against Thee whether knowingly or unknowingly and pardon us on account of Thine own Most Sacred Heart which was wounded through love for us when it was pierced by a lance on Calvary’s Cross; and deign to bestow upon us the grace which we need at each moment during our lives until death comes – an hour that cannot be avoided except by obtaining pardon beforehand during life itself with those who live in accord with God’s commandments through faith which works by love – so that we too may inherit eternal life together with them eternally.”
And so, my friends, I am asking you to join me and pray this prayer each day. Let us all strive to be merciful in our actions and words. If we can do that, then maybe there will be a little more love in this world for everyone! I’ll see you tomorrow at St Faustina’s church for mass.
We’re not sure what St. Faustina said in her prayer for divine mercy, but we do know that she was inspired by God to ask for His mercy on all people.
PRAYER FOR DIVINE MERCY
The Divine Mercy Prayer is a prayer composed by St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, a Polish nun, which was revealed to her by the Lord Jesus Christ. The Way of the Cross
and Holy Mass are central parts of this devotion.
It’s important that you understand what the purpose and meaning of this prayer is before attempting to recite it yourself: “O Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, pour down upon us, we pray Thee, O Heavenly Father.” In other words, it’s asking God for mercy on your behalf—that’s why you’ll see it recited so frequently at confessionals and in churches during Holy Week services (before Easter). It can also be used as an act of devotion by Catholics who believe in its power; some have been known to wear around their necks small medallions featuring an image depicting Jesus with arms outstretched in an embrace while holding open palms close together in front of him—this represents one version of this prayer written out on paper or cloth strips being held between his fingers like a scroll.
Most merciful God
The Most Merciful God is the creator of heaven and earth. He is the God who created you, me, your neighbor and everyone else on this planet.
He loves you so much that He wants to watch over you like a father watches over his children.
The Most Merciful God wants to give everyone peace in their hearts by giving them His mercy through prayer.
My prayer today is that we all will turn to Jesus Christ as our savior so we can receive His eternal life because He knows how much we need Him during these difficult times in our lives which may seem hopeless at times but with prayer and faith we can overcome anything with God’s help!
trust in You and hope for You,
When you trust in God, all things are possible. You can love others and be merciful toward them because you know that God loves you and will forgive your sins. This is the mercy of God, who has taken upon Himself our sins so that we may be spared from eternal damnation.
Trust in God’s mercy makes it possible for us to live a joyful life on earth and look forward to Heaven with great excitement!
I desire to be separated from all things and to unite myself to You alone.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon me as I prostrate myself before Your divine majesty. I ask pardon of You for myself and for all sinners.
O God! Be merciful to me a sinner!
“I desire to be separated from all things, and to unite myself to God alone. I wish no longer to live in time; but I long for eternity, where my soul will enjoy the vision of the Most Blessed Trinity.”
This is the most important phrase in this prayer. It summarizes St. Faustina’s desire: she wants nothing more than union with God through Jesus Christ. This is her highest goal and greatest happiness; it is what she prays for every day of her life—for herself, for the Church and even for sinners who don’t know Him yet!
st faustina prayer to be merciful
- and to unite myself to You alone.
- O my Jesus, I desire with all my heart not to offend You, because I love You above all things; and therefore I offer up every thought of my mind to You and give myself entirely into Your hands.
- Let me live as one who is dead to sin; let me die daily by receiving the Sacraments and by saying the Prayer of Consecration.
prayer to be merciful to others
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon me.
I have sinned in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do; make me worthy of Your mercy today.
O Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and each of us with your merciful love. Let all people experience the tenderness of God who forgives everything, everywhere and to everyone! Amen!
As you pray, imagine yourself prostrating before the Lord. The act of prostrating is a way to honor God and show your love for Him. It also shows your respect for His Majesty as well as humility before Him.
Prostrations are a way of expressing our gratitude to God when we ask for His mercy.
I ask pardon of You for myself and for all sinners.
“O Jesus, You are my tender and compassionate Mother. Listen to me and take pity on me. Obtain for me the grace which I now implore: (mention your request). O Mary, my Mother, who can never say that you have asked something of your Son and He has denied it to You.”
I adore Your supreme mercy and love, and I bless it;
I adore Your supreme mercy and love, and I bless it; through the bloody wounds of Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Amen.
O God, be merciful to me a sinner!
Through the bloody wounds of Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.
In a compassionate tone: Through the bloody wounds of Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.
We hope that this prayer will help you deepen your relationship with God
