The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy is a Christian devotion, based on the visions of Jesus reported by Saint Mary Faustina Kowalska (1905–1938). She was a Polish sister of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy and canonized as a Catholic saint in 2000. Faustina stated that she received the prayer through visions and conversations with Jesus, who made specific promises regarding the recitation of the prayers

The chaplet may be repeated over a period of nine days as part of a novena. There is a prayer intention for specific group of people on each of the nine days. The last day intention – according to Jesus' message to St. Faustina – is the most difficult of all that is to pray for the people who are lukewarm and indifferent.
The intentions are:
* First Day – all mankind, in particular all sinners.
* Second Day – the souls of priests and the religious.
* Third Day – the souls of the devout and faithful people.
* Fourth Day – for the non-believers and those who do not yet know Jesus.
* Fifth Day – the souls of heretics and schismatics.
* Sixth Day – the souls of "the meek and humble" and for little children.
* Seventh Day – the souls of people who especially glorify Christ's mercy.
* Eighth Day – souls in Purgatory.
* Ninth Day – souls who have become lukewarm and indifferent.
