7 Short N Easy Prayers To Learn And Attached Promises

Sure, Lent’s a time to fast and give up licit activities/pleasures and almsgiving.  But also, it’s the perfect opportunity to learn new prayers.  Here are short and easy to learn devotions with promises and indulgences attached to them:

1.   Act of Love

            “Jesus, Mary, I love you! Save Souls!”

            This short prayer was given to Sr. Consolata Betrone by Our Lord with the promise that “it repairs a thousand blasphemies” and that this Act of Love “includes the souls in Purgatory, the innocent, the suffering, the sinful, the dying and even your poor soul.”

2.  The Golden Arrow Prayer

            “May the most holy, most scared, most adorable, most incomprehensible and unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified in Heaven, on earth and under the earth, by all the creatures of God and by the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ in the most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.”

            Jesus dictated this prayer to Sr. Mary of St. Peter, saying that those who would recite the golden arrow prayer would pierce Him delightfully, and also heal those wounds of blasphemy.   Sr. Mary also received a vision that this prayer streamed conversion graces for sinners.

3. The Seven Sorrows

            Our Lady grants seven graces to souls who honor her daily by saying 7 Hail Marys and meditating on her seven sorrows: the prophecy of Simeon, the flight into Egypt, the loss of the Child Jesus in the temple, the meeting of Jesus and Mary on the Way of the Cross, the Crucifixion, the taking down of the Body of Jesus from the Cross, and the burial of Jesus.

            The seven graces: “I will give peace to their families, enlightenment about divine mysteries, consolation in their pains and accompaniment in their work, as much as they ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of my divine Son or the sanctification of their souls, defense in their spiritual battles, protection at every instant of their lives, visible help at the moment of their deaths.  Those who propagate this devotion will be taken directly from this earth to eternal happiness since their sins will be forgiven and My son and I will be their eternal consolation and joy.”

4.   Prayer Before a Crucifix after Holy Communion

            “Behold O kind and Most sweet Jesus, before Thy face I humbly kneel, and with the most fervent desire of my soul, I pray and beseech Thee to impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, true contrition for my sins and a firm purpose of amendment.  With deep affection and grief of soul, I ponder within myself mentally contemplating Thy five wounds, having before my eyes the words which David the Prophet spoke concerning Thee: “They have pierced my hands and my feet, they have numbered all my bones.”

            According to the Enchiridion of Indulgences No. 22, a plenary indulgence is granted on each Friday of Lent to those who after Communion pray this before the Cross.  On other days, partial indulgence is granted.

5.   My Adored Jesus

            “My Adored Jesus”

            Jesus told Elizabeth Kindelmann that if she said and constantly repeated this phrase, “how pleasant it is to Me, and even if you say nothing else for a whole hour, repeat it with repentance for your sins.  This obtains many graces, forgiveness for sins, and provides peace for souls.”

6. The Flame of Love

            “Our Mother, spread the effect of the grace of your Flame of Love over all of humanity. Amen.”

            Jesus also promised Elizabeth Kindelmann, “Each time you pray invoking the Flame of Love for all humanity, Satan is blinded and loses his dominion over souls. Our Lady also promised her, “My Flame of Love will blind Satan to the same extend that all of you spread it around the world.”

7. Blood and Water Prayer:

            “O blood and water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in you.”

            This prayer was given to St. Faustina by Our Lord with the promise that: “When you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith on behalf of some sinner, I will give him the grace of conversion.”
