Endless Prayer Chain
Oh Lord Jesus Christ we implore Thee to have mercy on all mankind. Keep us from sin by Thy precious blood and take us to live with Thee eternally -- Amen.
This prayer was sent out by Bishop Lawrence recommending it to be rewritten and sent to nine different persons. He who will not rewrite it will be afflicted by some calamity. He who will rewrite it for nine days and distribute it to nine persons commencing with the day it was received will on the ninth day receive great joy. At Jerusalem during the Holy Feast it was said: "He who will rewrite this prayer will be delivered from all calamity.
