How we pray The Holy Rosary

We start with making the Sign of the Cross: In the name of The Father, and of The Son, and of The Holy Spirit. Amen.

Then  on the crucifix pray:

Come Holy Spirit, fill my heart with grace, and
 help me now, as I place myself in the presence of
 God, and renounce all distractions that may come
 to me as I pray. Amen.

Thou Oh’ Lord would open my lips, and my
 tongue shall announce thy praise.

Incline unto my aid oh God
, oh Lord make haste to help us.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of
 heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only
 Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy
 Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under
 Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
 He descended into hell, the third day He arose
again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and
  is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and
 the dead.
 I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints,
the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

Then on the first bead from the crucifix we pray the “Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

Then on each of the next three beads we pray the “Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Then on the single bead before the centre piece we pray the “Glory be” and the “Fatima Prayer”(O' My Jesus)

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, World without end. Amen.

O My Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.

While still on this bead we announce the First Mystery for that day, example: Friday it would be the first Sorrowful Mystery of the Agony in the Garden.
Then pray the “Our Father

Then moving on past the Centre Piece we pray a “Hail Mary” on each of the ten beads.

Then on the single bead we pray the “Glory Be” and also the “
Fatima Prayer
Then we announce the second mystery and pray the “Our Father” on that same bead.

Then we move on to pray the “Hail Mary” on each of the next ten beads.

Then on the single bead we pray the “Glory Be” and also the “
Fatima Prayer.”
Then we announce the third mystery and pray the “Our Father” on that same bead.

This format continues to the last bead before we get back to the centre piece, at which time we pray only the “Glory Be” and also the “
Fatima Prayer.”

Then on the centre piece we pray:

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, Hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, O most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O Most Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

Let us pray:
O God, who’s only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation, grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries, of the Most Holy Rosary, of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ Our Lord, Amen.

May the Divine assistance remain always with us,
And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the hour of conflict, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God restrain him we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, trust Satan down to hell, and with him all the evil spirits, who wander through this world, for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless, and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

Then we finish with "The sign of the Cross"
