How To Pray The Rosary:
Kiss the Crucifix and sing yourself with the Rosary Crucifix, saying at the same time.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Say The prayer before the Rosary:
O My Dearest Mother Mary, behold us your children in prayer at your feet. Accept this Holy Rosary, which we offer you in accordance with your requests at Fatima, as a proof of our tender love for you, for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in atonement for the offenses committed against your Immaculate Heart, and for this special favor which we humbly request in This Rosary. (Here mention your request) We beg you to present our petition to your Divine Son. We ask it for the greater glory, of GOD, for your honor, and the good of all Souls. If you will pray for us we cannot be refused. We know, dearest Mother, that you want us to seek GOD's Holy Will concerning our request. If what we ask for should not be granted, pray that we may receive that which will be of greater benefit to our soul. Sweet heart of Mary be our Salvation, Amen.

The Apostles' Creed is said on the Crucifix:
The Apostles' Creed
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, sitteth 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

On The First Single Bead after the Crucifix recite the Lord's Prayer:
The Lord's Prayer
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.

Before the next three beads, it is traditional to just say the words:
For an increase of Faith, Hope, and Love, and then on each of the next three bead recite one Hail Mary.
(I have included the actual prayers for the Act of Faith, Hope and Love which I say, however, they are optional.)

On Bead One in Set of Three, For an increase of Faith say one Hail Mary.

An Act of Faith (optional)

O my God, I firmly believe that You are one God in three Divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; I believe that Your Divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because You revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.

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.
On Bead Two in Set of Three, For an increase of Hope say one Hail Mary. An Act of Hope (optional)
O my God, relying on Your infinite goodness and promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of Your grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.

On Bead Three in Set of Three, For an increase of Love say one Hail Mary.
An Act of Love (optional)
O my God, I love You above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because You are all-good and worthy of all love. I love my neighbor as myself for the love of You. I forgive all who have injured me, and I ask pardon of all whom I have injured. Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, Have mercy on me, a sinner.

Now say One Glory be to the Father
The Glory be to the Father
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.

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Now say the Prayer after the Rosary
Let us Pray:
O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; 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.

Usually the St. Michael Prayer is said after the Rosary but you may add other prayers at the end such as the following:
(A) The St. Michael Prayer:
(B) Memorare
(C) The Litany of the Blessed Virgin
(D) The Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

When you are finished saying the Rosary, Kiss the Crucifix and Sing yourself

The Prayer to St. Michael
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou O Prince of the heavenly host, By the Power of God - Drive into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who wander throughout out the world seeking the ruin of Souls, AMEN.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have mercy on us. (say 3 times.)
We place all our trust in thee.

The Memorare of St. Bernard:
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee I come; before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
