What is the Peace Chaplet Prayer?
The Peace Chaplet is a prayer said on a series of 21 beads. It is a traditional Croatian prayer that has been prayed as a family, by families, for generations. It is said that the grace of peace is bestowed onto all families that pray this Chaplet.
In 1981, Our Blessed Mother began to appear to children in what was then the Croatian village of Medjugorje. The visionaries continue to share the message that Our Blessed Mother asks us to pray the Peace Chaplet for peace for the whole world. This prayer is short, this prayer is powerful, and this prayer is for PEACE. Let’s start today, let’s join together in prayer for world peace. I know this concept seems impossible for our vast world to achieve peace. However, it is possible through GOD!
Pray for Peace
Prayer links our sincere desires to heaven and allows our desires to be ignited by the power of God. The more people pray in unison with the same intention, the more the quantum effect of transformation becomes possible. Imagine world peace. Imagine the Kingdom of God taking hold. Imagine humanity living on Earth as it is in heaven. Imagine the change.
21 Beads. 21 prayers. Pray 3 sets of 7. That is it! Let’s begin today.
On the Cross, pray the Apostles Creed — isn’t that prayer amazing?!
Together, we proclaim our belief in God and our acceptance to be HIS disciples, bringing LOVE into the world NOW! We say this prayer at every mass and every time our heart reaches up to heaven and proclaims a big YES, I BELIEVE! Amen.
On the three beads, pray three of the greatest prayers of our faith:
One Our Father, three Hail Marys, and one Glory Be. Repeat this sequence of three prayers seven times.
I must share a story about those three prayers: Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be. During my visits to Medjugorje, we prayed the entire Rosary daily. I wanted to bring this tradition of a daily Rosary back home and encourage my children to pray with me. Since they were still young at the time (9, 13, and 15), I asked our priest, Father Daniel, how I could encourage them to join me in the daily Rosary. He said, “Start small.” He suggested that we begin with one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be and to pray this every night at bedtime. Father Daniel asked that we pray for him and pray for all priests. I returned home and told my 9-year-old son that Father Daniel would like us to pray for him and asked us to pray these three prayers. This became our tradition, and hearing my son’s young voice praying out loud each night was pure perfection.
They say that this Peace Chaplet Prayer is the perfect prayer. I believe it to be so… it was in our home.

PEACE CHAPLET PRAYER
The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified; died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
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.
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst 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.Glory Be
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.
