“O my Jesus, may our lips beg our Heavenly Father, together, to obtain mercy.”

Friends I felt called as I was walking one day to invoke the final petition of the Flame of Love Prayer of Our Lord Jesus Christ: “O my Jesus, may our lips beg our Heavenly Father, together, to obtain mercy.” I began to pray a spontaneous litany to the Father by virtue of the holy wounds of Jesus. I submit here my version of this prayer, but would encourage you to pray in your own words as you walk or as you work, to fulfill the final line of the prayer Jesus gave to Elizabeth Kindelmann.

  1. Thank you. I can’t recall this from the book. Can you elaborate on what she says about this prayer or give page numbers? I want to follow your lead quickly.

    1. Edith and all, I think the 24 Hours of the Passion as given through Luisa is a very important devotion. Here is what Luisa wrote to her spiritual director concerning the devotion:

      Luisa Piccarreta “The Little Daughter of the Divine Will”

      “…The satisfaction that blessed Jesus receives from the meditation of these Hours is so great, that He would want at least one copy of these meditations to be present and practiced in each city or town. In fact, it would happen, then, as if Jesus heard His own voice and His prayers being reproduced in those reparations, just as the ones He raised to His Father during the 24 hours of His sorrowful Passion. And if this were done in each town or city at least, by as many souls, Jesus seems to make me understand that Divine Justice would be placated in part, and in these sad times of torments and bloodshed, Its scourges would be stopped, in part, and as though dampened. I let you, reverend Father, make appeal to all; may you complete, in this way, the little work that my lovable Jesus had me do…”

      (from a letter of Luisa to her extraordinary Confessor, Blessed Annibale M. di Francia)

      There is a pdf version here: http://www.asylcity.com/hours_of_passion.pdf . Thank you Edith, I had not thought of the litany as a succinct version of the prayer. I had found a litany of the passion on the internet, but this one is addressed to the Father, to implore him, with Jesus, for mercy.

  2. Thank you Pelianito, and Holy Spirit for this prayer. It draws me into Jesus’ sorrow and inspires me more to pray for souls– together.
    I want to share with you, and others who are praying the Flame of Love prayers that there is a youtube video that a man put up who was inspired to create a FOL chaplet. He prays it while taking a prayer walk in the winter. It has become one of my favorite daily prayers. You can find it here: Flame of Love Chaplet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGj17zsgiqw

  4. Dearest sister in Christ,

    Praised be Jesus ! I am so grateful the Lord gave you this prayer. We used it last Friday for the first time after our prayer group Rosary. Our group was inspired to start the year offering of the 15 Prayers of Saint Brigid last May, and this prayer is the perfect ending to it or to the Divine Mercy Chaplet. It is so beautiful and so powerful . Thank you for sharing it with us here !!!
    With much love and gratitude, in the Heart of Mary, Mother of Mercy…
