Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into Hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
(a prayer from the book “Angel Prayers”)
Glorious Saint Michael, Guardian and Defender of the Church of Jesus Christ, come to the assistance of the Church, against which the powers of hell are today unleashing with extraordinary force.
Guard with special care her hard working leader, the Pope, and obtain that for him and for us the hour of triumph may speedily arrive.
O glorious Saint Michael, watch over us during life, defend us against the assaults of the demons, and assist us especially at the hour of death.
Obtain for us a favorable judgment and the happiness of beholding God face to face for all eternity.
Glorious Saint Michael, intercede for me with God in all my necessities, especially (name them), and obtain for me a favorable outcome in the matter I now ask of you. O glorious Prince of the heavenly host, and victor over rebellious spirits, be mindful of me who am so weak and sinful and yet so prone to pride and ambition.
Give me your powerful aid in every temptation and difficulty, and above all do not forsake me in my last struggle with the powers of evil. Amen.
