Divine Mercy Prayer

O greatly Merciful God, Infinite Goodness,

today all makind calls out from the abyss

of its misery to Your mercy---to Your compassion,

O God; and it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out.

Gracious God do not reject the prayer of this earth's exiles!

O Lord, Goodness beyond our understanding,

Who are acquainted with our misery through and through,

and know that by our own power

we cannot ascend to You,

we implore You; anticipate us with Your Grace

and keep on increasing Your mercy in us,

that we may faithfully do Your holy will

all through our life and at death's hour.

Let the omnipotence of Your mercy

shield us from the darts of our salvation's enemies,

that we may with confidence,

as Your children await Your final coming

- that day known to You alone.

And we expect to obtain everything promised us

by Jesus in spite of all our wretchedness.

For Jesus is our Hope:

Through His merciful Heart

as through an open gate we pass through to heaven.
