According to the common teaching of the Doctors, if we contribute toward the salvation of other souls, we will also very likely persevere in grace - and often sin mortally no more - until the end, and by the grace of God, our own souls will be saved as well. The Chaplet of St. Gertrude, which the Lord God originally inspired for the speedy deliverance of all the Souls in Purgatory, and which Mother Church expanded to include living sinners, including dying persons, is a wonderful way by which we can save many souls, and thus hopefully our own as well! What Jesus really wants is for all of us to learn to love God and our neighbor selflessly, as best we can; this is what He calls Holy Love in many of His ongoing Apparitions along with His Mother across the whole globe. And here's a wonderful video of the Chaplet of St. Gertrude. And as we speak of Spiritual Communion, to constantly offer the Body and Blood of Jesus to the Eternal Father, in spiritual union with all the Holy Masses in the world, is almost like a spiritual Mass, and a way for us to participate in Calvary all the time, right from wherever we are! The simple acclamation of love, "Jesus, Mary, I Love You! Save Souls" also releases grace from God's Heart. But spiritual offerings of the Most Precious Blood are among the most powerful prayers.

Leo XIII condemned the extravagant promises made for unapproved prayers, like this promise to release a thousand souls from purgatory. A prayer obviously cannot promise that, not one, not a thousand. The prayers individually seems good, but that promise is inadmissible.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.

You'll notice I did not say thousand - as some Priests hold that promise was specific to St. Gertrude - but save souls in Purgatory, which the prayer will certainly do, unless you wish to doubt the Power of the Precious Blood, in union with all the Holy Masses in the world, when offered up with love and devotion, which I am sure, Prayerful, you will not. The Church takes some precautionary measures lest anyone promise anything, but when Our Lord has made a promise to someone the Church assures us is a Saint, and a great Saint, we can certainly pray her prayer, and piously believe, without pretending to constrain Our Lord to anything, but relying on His Promise and His Goodness, that He will release souls from Purgatory as we continue to pray the prayer. It may be that a particular soul, depending on the level of merits and the degree of the state of grace in her currently, may need to pray the prayer 10 times to release the average soul in Purgatory. Because of what the Faith teaches us about prayer, that "the continual prayer of a just man availeth much" (Jam 5:16), and the satisfactory value of our prayers (what is applied to the souls in purgatory when we pray for them) increases as our individual merits increase, it is likely that when prayed sincerely, more and more souls will be released as time goes by. So let us pray, and leave it to God how many souls He chooses to release. God bless.
