Struggling to surrender yourself to God? Try this Chaplet of the Fiat

The repetition of Mary’s expression of ultimate submission to God’s will is somehow both soothing and challenging

Penny Michalak, foundress of the Sisters of The Fiat, has interwoven prayers of the Church and Scripture, along with a consecration prayer, in a prayer she calls the Chaplet of the Fiat. This simple and quick prayer is a means to ask for the grace of totally accepting the will of God in our life. The repetition of Mary’s expression of ultimate submission to God’s will is somehow both soothing and challenging, and gives us an opportunity to really focus on the heroism of her simple “yes.”

Read about Penny and the order of sisters she founded, and their school’s special ministry to children with special needs here and here.

The Chaplet of the Fiat

Begin with the Sign of the Cross.

Pray the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Creed.

Then, before every decade of the Fiat prayer, pray the Hail Holy Queen.

On each of the 10 beads, say the words Our Lady said to Gabriel, which resulted in the Incarnation of the Son of God:

BEHOLD THE HANDMAID OF THE LORD: Be it done unto me according to Thy word.

Recite the Memorare on each of the five beads after the Crucifix.

Then, pray the Consecration Prayer:

My God, I consecrate myself completely to You. I surrender everything I am and have to You. Give me the grace to desire only to live Your Will. Fill me with the Holy Spirit, the Advocate, who strengthens, transforms, and unites my soul completely to You so that in living Your Divine Will, Perfect Love may reign in me.
