Saint Michael Prayer

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, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits, who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

 

Consecration Prayer

Oh most Noble Prince of the Angelic Hierarchies

valorous warrior of Almighty God,

and zealous lover of His glory,

terror of the rebellious angels,

and love and delight of all the just ones,

my beloved Archangel Saint Michael,

desiring to be numbered among your devoted servants,

I, today offer and consecrate myself to you,

and place myself, my family,

and all I possess under your most powerful protection.

 

I entreat you not to look at how little, I,

as your servant have to offer,

being only a wretched sinner,

but to gaze, rather,

with favorable eye at the heartfelt affection

with which this offering is made,

and remember that if from this day onward

I am under your patronage,

you must during all my life assist me,

and procure for me the pardon of my many grievous offenses, and sins,

the grace to love with all my heart my God,

my dear Saviour Jesus and my Sweet Mother Mary,

and obtain for me all the help necessary to arrive to my crown of glory.

 

Defend me always from my spiritual enemies,

particularly in the last moments of my life.

 

Come then oh Glorious Prince and succour me in my last struggle,

and with your powerful weapon

cast far from me into the infernal abysses that prevaricator and proud angel

that one day you prostrated in the celestial battle.

 

Saint Michael, defend us in our daily battle

so that we may not perish in the last Judgment. Amen
