Then, He began to speak to all of us: “My Brides, I don’t care what your background is, there is no excuse for not praying this prayer. Do you really want to know what I meant by saying long prayers, repetitive prayers and babbling to impress people? You complain about long prayers, but do you know that My disciples and I prayed the Psalms regularly and repeatedly? Psalm 91 was a favorite, over and over again. Yet this prayer I gave that poor Polish woman is criticized for being long and repetitive?
“For the sake of My sorrowful passion….have Mercy on us and on the whole world.”
“Is it too much for Me to ask of you, My Bride, to meditate on My Passion for the twenty minutes it takes to say the chaplet? Is it boring to you? I am sorry. It should never be boring to you.”
Lord, it is boring sometimes. Why is that?
“Is it boring to think about how you are going to make improvements around the house and the yard? You give your mind to that day after day for at least twenty minutes if I could count all the minutes together. The answer is simple: your carnal nature is stronger than your spiritual nature. You derive more pleasure from thinking creative thoughts than entering into My Passion with Me.
“Clare, I will not condemn you here, Beloved. Ask of Me and I will impart to you this very special gift. I would love to see you at the foot of My Cross more. Oh, I would derive great comfort from that.”
OK, Lord. I am asking. May I have that gift, too? On top of all the others You’ve been so generous to give?
“Consider it done. There is a certain sweetness I share with My Bride when she enters that space with Me. It is sweeter by far than any of the other gifts. You will never feel the profound joy and sorrow any other way than by entering into the suffering of My Passion. You have been there before, Clare, don’t tell Me you haven’t.”
Yes, Lord, I have, but it was not easy.
“It also brought you deeper in compassion, in understanding and the ability to carry your own cross. You tasted the sweetness of the depth of My Love for you and all mankind, that I would willingly lay down My Godhead and allow Myself to be done away with by My very own creatures. There is a bitterness there that is intensely sweet and all who partake of that are strengthened in resolve, in goodwill, and inspired to live more and more for Me. I am not saying it is easy. It certainly requires a strong resolve since it is not an easy thing to meditate upon.
“When I say ‘don’t pray as the pagans do and don’t stand on the street corners saying long prayers’, I am talking about display.
“All of you have been there…in a group, multiplying your prayers to sound good and caring in the presence of others, as well as going on and on asking for worldly gifts. When, in fact, the prayer I taught you is to be an example of what to ask for.
Matt 6:7-9 And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.…’
Mark 12:38 Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted with respect in the marketplaces…
“I repeated plenty of long prayers, the Psalms were forever on My lips. I do not remember a time when I was not praying one part or another from the Psalms and the prophets. I was fond of repeating particular lines that brought comfort to My Father.
“The Divine Mercy Chaplet was given to extend grace and mercy at a critical time in history, WWII. Many, many, many who were dying came to Me at the very last moment of their lives because of this prayer. And, to this day it is divinely relevant.
“So, swallow your pride, rend your garments and beg for mercy. You cannot imagine the holocaust that you are on the verge of. There is not one person in this country that will not be desperately affected by the coming events. You cannot imagine it now because you have lived in peace for so long. But, if for no other reason than to save your relatives, I have great need of your prayers, My Dear little family. Great need.
“Whenever My Spirit moves upon your hearts, pray from the heart in the way you’re inspired. I only brought up the chaplet’s virtue because some have slandered it. I wanted you to understand what the Scriptures say and don’t say about prayer, not what men twist to fit their own particular doctrine to put others down with. Over and over again in the Scriptures, I have said things that could be twisted and rationalized, made into a doctrine by those who do not think beyond the lines of print on the page.
“Your prayers are powerful. They do not bounce off the ceiling as the enemy would have you believe. No, every single prayer is presented in Heaven as a sweet smelling sacrifice, every single prayer. The enemy will discourage you from prayer if you let him, in the same way he discourages you about yourself. They spend all their time running around lying. If they are not permitted to do physical harm, they will at the very least convince gullible souls that their prayers are a waste of time. Do not allow yourselves to be victimized by such as these.”
Lord, I often feel this way.
“Yes, I know. Part of it is Sloth, the other is a lie you’ve allowed into your thinking. You will have to do much violence to overcome this treachery that has affected all My saints. Day and night, twenty-four hours, My Father in Heaven is answering prayers. Many are jaded in their thinking about prayer. They presume that because they have not fasted or done great works that their prayers will not be heard. May I say, the obedient soul gets their prayers answered. There is no higher disposition of heart next to mercy and charity than obedience. Obedience does violence to pride and fosters humility, and the obedient soul who has shifted all their confidence off their flesh and onto My Loving Providence, will get their prayers answered more than those who pray and declare their faith one moment and shift into unbelief the next because they didn’t fast.”

Pray For Mercy & More Time, Jesus on Prayer August 9, 2015
need help in getting closer to Jesus and the father. Need help in making my spiritual prayer life the main part of my everyday life.
Come over to the Youtube site. You will find over 600 videos, sorted into playlists, to help you with those things.
My mom taught me this prayer in 2005 and told me it was a very important prayer to pray over a dying soul. When my aunt was dying in the hospital I got a call to come to her side. The nurses told me my aint was a fighter and that means they were not dying peacfully but were in angst. I proceeded to pray this pray over her and a hospice nurse came over and joined me. My cousin, her son, called me the next day and told me the nurses were exstatic and told him this. They said 20 minutes after I left all the nurses gathered around her for this glow as coming from her and she looked like an angel with the biggest smile you could imagine they said. She died within 90 minutes of that prayer and the nurses were crying tears of joy. The nurses wanted to know what prayer was prayed over her. Since that day I have prayed over six dying people and all passed in peace shortly after.

Praying the Chaplet of divine MERCY feels like my heart is actually pumping blood.
Coming into the prayer brings me closer to Jesus, makes me feel apart of Him more. I love praying it with mama Clare song and it felt good to come to a point of being able to pray it alone by memory. I’m very happy she shared this prayer it prospered my soul, my relationship with Jesus went into a deeper depth.
I don’t understand this divine mercy prayer and chaplet thing. Tell me, is it not like that of the Roman Catholics? Is sister Clare in support of Roman Catholic? I want to know, I mean her background. Somebody should answer me please. Am kind of confused if she is a Roman Catholic or not. Also, her use of the Eucharist. These are Catholics terms. Please clarify this issue for me
No… Her beliefs are not of the ROMAN Catholics, but they do go back into the Ancient Fathers. You can go to the Youtube site and look up her testimony in this playlist:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OgFMhpIMEQ&list=PLJPAM4w-f9t7oC2uWQTiEq2zvkdOQNmiu
The Catholic church WAS the only Church for many, many years. And yes, it fell into corruption.But there was always a remnant of True Believers that held onto the ways and prayers and order of service that the disciples used, and passed on to the Ancient Fathers. But there is NO church today that has not, in some point, been infiltrated with Satan’s lies. No denomination that can boldly boast that THEY follow the Lord without corruption in their rules and laws and teachings… And so He calls out those who truly believe Him, want His Truth and to worship Him in thase Truths…
What Jesus is doing through His messages through Clare is calling Believers back to the original intent He had for His Church – no matter what the name over the door is.
HE was the one who gave the Divine Mercy prayer to Faustina – who was an incredibly, Godly nun. Yes – she was part of the Catholic church, but HE gave her the prayer. Same with the Eucharist. He gave these to ALL His Body. People have changed the names around, believed or not believed in how to take “communion”. But He is the institutor. And this is what He calls it to Clare…
Clare is not in support of Rome, nor any denomination as a whole. She and Ezekiel live their lives according to what the Lord has taught them through the study of the Scriptures and the writings of the Desert Fathers. In other words, the Truth as Jesus taught His early church.
I’m so confused about what the chaplet prayer is. Is it simply the phrase “for the sake of your sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and the whole world.”? Repeated for 20 minutes? Someone please advise. I want to pray the prayer for Jesus.
This should explain it’s origins a little better for you:0)
The History of the Chaplet of The Divine Mercy
In 1935, St. Faustina received a vision of an angel sent by God to chastise a certain city. She began to pray for mercy, but her prayers were powerless. Suddenly she saw the Holy Trinity and felt the power of Jesus’ grace within her. At the same time she found herself pleading with God for mercy with words she heard interiorly:
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; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us. (Diary, 475)
As she continued saying this inspired prayer, the angel became helpless and could not carry out the deserved punishment (see 474). The next day, as she was entering the chapel, she again heard this interior voice, instructing her how to recite the prayer that our Lord later called “the Chaplet.” This time, after “have mercy on us” were added the words “and on the whole world” (476). From then on, she recited this form of prayer almost constantly, offering it especially for the dying.
In subsequent revelations, the Lord made it clear that the Chaplet was not just for her, but for the whole world. He also attached extraordinary promises to its recitation.
Jesus instructed her this way, “Encourage souls to say the Chaplet which I have given you (1541). Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death (687). When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the Merciful Savior (1541). Priests will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this Chaplet only once, he would receive grace from My infinite mercy (687). I desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in My mercy (687). Through the Chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will. (1731)”
The parenthesis in this article denote pages numbers in her diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul.
In the videos’ Claire has mentioned that we can “offer” our prayers or sufferings to Father God for different situations or to advert certain events.
But I often do not know where my prayer and sufferings are needed the most so I usually just don’t offer my prayers or sufferings to God for a specific situation but just offer Him my prayer and sufferings for however he’d like to use it. Does this make prayer less effective? I just don’t know what’s going on like God does, I don’t know if he wants to use my prayer to overflow His mercy on a dying soul, or to help a trafficked child, or perhaps to advert a nuclear war perhaps…
Thanks I’m advance!
That’s what He means, Pete:0) We usually don’t know just what and where He uses these things. Sometimes, I’ll ASK Him to ‘use this prayer’ for the sake of someone else. But most of the time, we just offer it – and let Him do the rest.
