PRAYER OF ENTRUSTMENT OF THE WORLD TO DIVINE MERCY:
God, merciful Father,
in Your Son, Jesus Christ,
You have revealed Your love and poured it out upon us in the Holy Spirit, the Comforter. We entrust to You today the destiny of the world and of every man and woman.
Bend down to us sinners, heal our weakness, conquer all evil, and grant that all the peoples of the earth may experience Your mercy.
In You, the Triune God, may they ever find the source of hope. Eternal Father, by the Passion and Resurrection of Your Son, have mercy on us and upon the world.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
