    Let's surrender our feelings and thoughts to God and quietly remind ourselves

    "In Everything, We Trust in GOD."

    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.

    (Repeat 3 times) 

    O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust You!

    (On each "Our Father" bead of the rosary, 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 each of the 10 "Hail Mary" beads, pray)

    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 on the whole world. 

    Optional Closing Prayer

    Eternal God, in whom mercy in endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, 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.
