The “Three O’clock Hour Prayer”
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the Ocean of Mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us (1319).
Jesus spoke to Faustina about the Hour of Great Mercy on two separate occasions. On the first occasion, he said:
At three o’clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy for the whole world. I will allow you to enter into My Mortal Sorrow. In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My Passion (1320).
(I am praying that President Obama, his family and Our Country will repent of their sins, me included, and come back to God, Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. I am also praying for the whole world; especially those in Most Need of GOD’s Mercy and for their temporal needs too. Syria & Philippines, Haiti, Sudan, Mexico, Venezuela, Ireland, UK, France, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Taiwan, and South Vietnam and All Countries.)
I remind you, My daughter, that as often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My Mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world — Mercy triumphed over Justice.
My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that your duties permit it; and if you are not able to make the Stations of the Cross, then at least step into the chapel for a moment and adore, in the Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is Full of Mercy; and should you be unable to step into the chapel, immerse yourself in prayer there where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant (1572).
