The purpose of this Chaplet is that through the intercession of Saint Patrick, God Almighty will strengthen one's faith and grant the grace of faith to others.
Begin by praying the Apostles' Creed on the medal
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 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into Heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From there 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 life everlasting. Amen.
On each of the 12 green beads pray the 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. Amen.
Conclude with the Breastplate of Saint Patrick Prayer
I bind to myself today the strong virtue of the invocation of the Trinity. I believe the Trinity in the unity; the Creator of the Universe.
I bind to myself today the virtue of the incarnation of Christ with His baptism, the virtue of His crucifixion with His burial, the virtue of His resurrection with His ascension, the virtue of His coming on the judgement day.
I bind to myself today the virtue of the love of Seraphim, in the obedience of angels, in the hope of resurrection unto reward, in prayers of Patriarchs, in predictions of Prophets, in preaching of Apostles, in faith of Confessors, in purity of holy virgins, in deeds of righteous men.
I bind to myself today the power of Heaven, the light of the sun, the brightness of the moon, the splendor of fire, the flashing of lightning, the swiftness of wind, the depth of sea, the stability of Earth, the compactness of rocks.
I bind to myself today God's power to guide me, God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to teach me, God's eye to watch over me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to give me speech, God's hand to guide me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to shelter me, God's host to secure me against the snares of demons, against the seductions of vices, against the lusts of nature, against everyone who meditates injury to me whether far or near, whether few or with many.
I invoke today all these virtues against every hostile merciless power which may assail my body and my soul, against the incantations of false prophets, against the black laws of heathenism, against the false laws of heresy, against the deceits of idolatry, against the spells of women, and smiths and druids, against every knowledge that binds the soul of man.
Christ, protect me today against every poison, against burning, against drowning, against death-wound, that I may receive abundant reward.
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ at my right, Christ at my left, Christ in the fort, Christ in the chariot seat, Christ in the poop deck, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
I bind to myself today the strong virtue of an invocation of the Trinity. I believe the Trinity in the unity; the Creator of the Universe.
