Luck chain letter.  Ancient Prayer.  "Oh, Lord, Jesus Christ, we implore Thee, oh Eternal God ..".   US, 1906

Endless Prayer Chain -- Oh, Lord, Jesus Christ, we implore Thee, oh Eternal God, to have mercy on all mankind and keep us from sin by thy precious blood and take us to be wit Thee eternally.  Amen!

This prayer has been sent out by Bishop Lawrence, recommending it to be rewritten and sent out to nine others. He who will not write it will be afflicted with some misfortune: one person who paid no attention to it met with a great accident.
He who will rewrite it nine times and distribute it to nine other persons, commencing on day received, sending one each day, will on or after the ninth day experience a great joy. It has been said he who will rewrite this letter will be delivered from any calamity.  Do not break the chain.
