Special Prayers for the Conversion of Souls
When Jesus appeared to St. Faustina, he gave this conversion prayer, for sinners who had lost their faith, in this prayer also dictated to Saint Faustina directly by Jesus, He promises to come into the life of any person that this prayer is said for, providing it is said with a contrite heart and with faith in His Divine Mercy. This prayer has become more known as the “Three O’clock Prayer” rather than the more accurate title, “Prayer for the Conversion of Sinners."
Three O'Clock Prayer to the Divine Mercy
You expired, O Jesus,
but the source of life gushed forth for souls
and an 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.
O Blood and Water,
which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus
as a fount of mercy for us,
I trust in You.
Saint Monica Novena Prayer
Dear Saint Monica, you were once the mournful mother of a prodigal son. Your faithfulness to prayer brought you and your son so close to God that you are now with him in eternity. By your intercession and God’s grace, your son St. Augustine became a great and venerable Saint of the Church. Please take my request to God with the same fervor and persistence with which you prayed for your own son.
(Mention your intentions here)
With your needs, worries and anxieties, you threw yourself on the mercy and providence of God. Through sorrow and pain, you constantly devoted yourself to God. Pray for me that I might join you in such a deep faith in God’s goodness and mercy.
Above all, dear Saint Monica, pray for me that I may, like your son, turn from my sin and become a great saint for the glory of God.
