The Chaplet of Divine Mercy
The Chaplet of Divine Mercy has been such a blessing to me. It really has cured my insomnia. I know that if I say a chaplet, I will be relaxed and calmed enough to go to sleep. I've always known that my insomnia was stress induced and the chaplet helps me put my trust in Jesus, so the stress goes away. Hubby is having a hard time at work with his new principal. So in addition to our/my evening chaplet, I've been trying to say one first thing in the morning. I was really sleepy-tired today. Number One Son had a rough night the night before and I didn't get enough sleep. As I was praying, "Eternal Father, I offer you the body and blood, soul and divinity of your dearly beloved son, our Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and for those of the whole world." I heard a voice in my head of someone praying with me. That certainly woke me up! I was able to finish the prayer by myself, but a big "thank you" to my helper in heaven (St. Faustina?) for helping me finish my chaplet for my husband and his boss.
