Holding the Crucifix say the "Apostle Creed."

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

Starting with the first blue sapphire bead say the "Our Father" seven times

Our Father, Who art in heaven; hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Starting with the second set of beads say the "Hail Mary" seven times

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Starting with the third set of blue beads say the "Glory Be" seven times

Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Optional Ending Prayer

My Jesus,
By the sorrows You suffered in the garden, in the scourging and crowning with thorns, on the way to Calvary, in Your crucifixion and death - have mercy on the souls in purgatory, especially those who are most forsaken. Deliver them from the dire torments they endure, and admit them to Your most sweet embrace in heaven.
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace.
(Note: the optional ending prayer was not recommend by Our Lady in the purgatory message given the Medjugorje visionaries on July 21, 1982. Medjugorje USA feels this awesome prayer is an great way to finish off our daily devotion for purgatory souls.)

Why should we pray for purgatory souls?

Because the souls in Purgatory are no longer alive in the flesh, their only hope is that we here on earth will pray for them. The practice of praying for souls in Purgatory has long been forgotten, today few Catholic's pray for them. What most of us have forgotten is that when souls prayed for are released from Purgatory they go directly before the throne of God where they pray for the souls on earth who prayed for them. This is a great blessing for both Purgatory souls and us on earth.

Facts about the POW Chaplet

The chaplet consists of a Crucifix on which is prayed the "Creed," Our Lady's favorite prayer. The Crucifix and "Creed" on the POW chaplet stands as a reminder that we are all one in unity. There are three sets of beads on the chaplet, which stand for the Holy Trinity. On the first set of beads we say 7 Our Father's, on the second set we say 7 Hail Mary's and on the third set we say 7 Glory Be's. There are three red beads on the Chaplet located on the seventh prayer of each set; this is to remind us that in the end it is the blood of Christ shed for the forgiveness of sins that sets us free and the 3 red beads also represents the graces of the Holy Trinity through the blood shed. There are 7 beads to each set, the number 777 is said to be the number of perfection, according to Scripture. It is through the sacrifice of the Blood of the Lamb, (Jesus Christ,) that we who believe may enter the Kingdom of God. However, upon death not all souls have reached the perfection of forgiveness so these souls are sent to a place of purification called "Purgatory." Finally Our Lady of Medjugorje appears wearing a blue mantle, so the remaining beads on the chaplet are sapphire blue.
