7 Prayers of St. Bridget: 12 years of Devotion!

In the 14th Century, the mystic and visionary Saint Bridget of Sweden was called upon by the Divine Lord to write a set of prayers known as The Seven Prayers of St. Bridget. 

The Seven Prayers of St. Bridget, Devotion for Twelve Years

Starting at the sweet age of 7, Bridget had visions of the crucifixion of Christ, and these visions continued throughout her life. Among these visions received by St. Bridget was the 12 Year Prayer devotion.

These meditation prayers honor the seven times Jesus Christ spilled his blood for the world.

The prayer includes the circumcision, the agony in the garden, the scourging at the pillar, the crowning with thorns, the carrying of the cross, the crucifixion, and the piercing of Jesus' side.

Jesus Christ appears in St. Bridget’s visions to indoctrinate her in the prayers. It is a devotional prayer in praise and honor for Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God.

Saint Bridget prayed for a long time to know how many blows Our Lord suffered during His terrible Passion. Then, rewarding her patience, one day, He appeared to her and said:

“I received 5475 blows upon My Body. If you wish to honor them in some way, recite fifteen Our Fathers and fifteen Hail Marys with the following Prayers, which I Myself shall teach you, for an entire year. When the year is finished, you will have honored each of My Wounds.”

This prayer is to be prayed every day for 12 years—dedication and devotion of conviction to Christ.

Christ declares that anyone who prayed this prayer daily for a consecutive twelve years will get things that Jesus Christ had promised to St. Bridget.

These magnificent promises are:

1) The soul who prays them suffers no purgatory.

2) The soul who prays them will be accepted among the Martyrs as though he had spilled his blood for his faith.

3) The soul who prays them can choose three others whom Jesus will keep in a state of grace sufficient to become holy.

4) No one in the four successive generations of the soul who prays them will be lost.

5) The soul who prays them will be made conscious of his death one month in advance.

If the suppliant should die before the allotted span, God the Father will accept them as having been prayed in their entirety, as the genuine intention was there. If a day or a few days are missed for a valid reason, they can be made up later.

Here’s the guide on prayer the twelve years of prayer, the Seven Prayers of St. Bridget:
