Luck Chain Letter. Ancient Prayer. "Endless
Prayer Chain" "... a terrible accident, so the friend wrote who sent
this to me." US, 1906.
Endless Payer Chain
Oh, lord, Jesus Christ, I implore thee, oh, Eternal God, to have mercy
on all mankind. Keep us from sin by Thy precious blood, and take us to be
with Thee eternally. Amen.
This prayer was sent by Bishop Lawrence recommending it to be rewritten
and sent to nine other persons. He who will not say it will be affected by
some misfortune. One person who paid no attention to it met with a terrible
accident, so the friend wrote who sent this to me. He who will write this
prayer for nine days and distribute it to nine other persons commencing on
the day it is received and sending only one each day, will on or after the
ninth day experience great joy. At Jerusalem, during the Holy Feast, it was
said, he who will rewrite the prayer will be delivered from every calamity.
Please do not break the chain.
