               Ancient Prayer.
Lord Jesus I implore thee to have
mercy on all men.
Keep us from all evil & bring
us to dwell with thee eternally.

This prayer was sent to me, so I
pass it on to you. It is being

said in our Lord's time that
those who pass it on will recieve

some great joy, those who do not
some great calamity. So pass it on

2 days you will recieve some
joy.  Dont break the Chain
