Our Lady and the Angel of Fatima taught three shepherd children five prayers.Five Prayers Revealed at Fatima: Every Catholic should know these! The apparition of an angel and Our Lady to three poor children in Fatima, Portugal in the early 20th century is one of the most famous miracles in the Catholic world. The children received many messages, mostly calling for personal conversion and prayer, as well as the words of five new prayers.

The first prayer is one many Catholics are likely already familiar with, but the other four are not as well known. Here are the 5 prayers given to the children at Fatima:

(1) The Fatima Prayer or Decade Prayer

"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy. Amen." Mary told the children that people should add this prayer to the end of each decade of the Rosary.

(2) The Pardon Prayer

"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love Thee! I beg pardon for all those that do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love Thee." This prayer was given to the children by the angel that visited them in 1916, the year before Mary appeared to them.

(3) The Angel’s Prayer

"O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners."

This is the other prayer given to the little shepherds by the angel. There was a Eucharistic host and chalice suspended in the air, and the angel led them in kneeling before it and praying this prayer.

(4) The Eucharistic Prayer

"Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament." When Mary appeared to the children for the first time on May 13, 1917, she said, "You will have much to suffer, but the grace of God will be your comfort." According to Lucia, one of the children, a bright light shone all around them, and without thinking about it, they all started reciting this prayer.

(5) The Sacrifice Prayer

"O Jesus, it is for the love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for the conversion of poor sinners, [that I do this]." Mary gave the children this prayer, as well as the Fatima Prayer or Decade Prayer, on June 13, 1917. The prayer is meant to be recited whenever you are offering up your sufferings to God.

So, get praying (please)!
