Prayer for Souls in Purgatory:-
O Almighty and Eternal Father, as by your will we pray for the souls in purgatory. I dedicate to you through the most pure hands of Mary, all the masses that are offered today, for your glory and for the release of the souls in Purgatory. I humbly beg you to forgive them their sins, through the grace of your beloved Son and to have mercy on them.
In reparation for the failures of these souls to show you praise, love, honor and gratitude, and for the merits which they failed to gain, I offer to you all the praise, love, honor, gratitude, and suffering with which your Son praised you while He was on Earth.
In reparation for all the negligence and indifference showed by these souls, I offer you the ardent eagerness with which Your Son accomplished all his deeds on Earth, deeds which endure and glorify you in all the Holy Masses.
In reparation for all the mistakes and faults of these souls, i offer you all the virtues of your Son, which continue to glorify you in all the Holy Masses.
In expiation of the sins of these souls, I offer you the divine Blood which your Son spilled while on earth, and which He still offers to you for us in all the holy Masses.
As recompense for all the punishments and tortures which these souls suffer, I offer you the terrible suffering and death of your beloved Son, which are renewed by him in all the holy Masses.
For the liberation of these souls from the darkness of sin, I offer you the merits which your Son had on earth, and which he still offers in all the holy Masses.
Finally to appease your strict justice, I offer you all the virtues of the most Holy Mother of God and all your saints, who suffered greatly to make up for what the souls in purgatory failed to fulfil. May the merits which they obtained, united with the suffering and death of your beloved Son attain for the souls in purgatory ever lasting freedom and peace. Amen.

is it true that dead souls have a chance to heaven?? if we on earth pray for them,whether they go to heaven??
They themselves cant do anything for them once they are dead. But we, who are still alive, can pray for the forgiveness of their sins. And once these souls reach heaven, they will be praying for us showing their gratitude.
God Bless You
thakns for the reply but am not clear because someone said its not good to do like that cause if a person live on earth without knowing or having faith in God and dead… he cant do anything and its god’s will 4 him to hell because of his negligence on earth……
only things which are in god’s will are done and even we pray against his will its all of waste…………. if u can please clear my doubt after asking about this with God
The Catholic Church gives the name Purgatory to the final purification of all who die in Godâ€™s grace and friendship. According to Catholic doctrine, some souls are not sufficiently free from sin and its consequences to enter the state of heaven immediately, nor are they so sinful as to be destined for hell either. Such souls, ultimately destined to be united with God in heaven, must first endure purgatoryâ€”a state of purification. In purgatory, souls achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.The Catholic Church teaches that the fate of those in purgatory can be affected by the actions of the living, such as prayers and indulgences.
To provide you more enlightenment, kindly read the diary of Saint Fautina of Divine Mercy.
The following are some of words Jesus said to Saint Faustina, by His words you can understand His Passion and Great Love for us:
All souls to trust in the unfathomable abyss of My mercy, because I want to save them all. On the cross, the fountain of My mercy was opened wide by the lance for all souls – no one have I excluded!
The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness. You always console Me when you pray for sinners. The prayer most pleasing to Me is the prayer for the conversion of sinners. Know, My daughter, that this prayer is always heard and answered.
“Today bring to Me the Souls who are in the prison of Purgatory,
and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are making retribution to My justice. It is in your power to bring them relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My justice.”
I hope this give you some insight.
We should also pray for the Holy Souls in Puratory also night and day! There should not be a single moment when we don’t pray for them!
