St. Michael the Archangel Defeating Satan, Hamburg, Germany, by Tombamasta
Glorious St. Michael, Prince of the heavenly hosts, who standest always ready to give assistance to the people of God; who didst fight with the dragon, the old serpent, and didst cast him out of heaven, and now valiantly defendest the Church of God that the gates of hell may never prevail against her, I earnestly entreat thee to assist me also, in the painful and dangerous conflict which I have to sustain against the same formidable foe. Be with me, O mighty Prince! that I may courageously fight and wholly vanquish that proud spirit, whom thou hast by the Divine Power, so gloriously overthrown, and whom our powerful King, Jesus Christ, has, in our nature, so completely overcome; to the end that having triumphed over the enemy of my salvation, I may with thee and the holy angels, praise the clemency of God who, having refused mercy to the rebellious angels after their fall, has granted repentance and forgiveness to fallen man. Amen.
Prayer to St. Michael Against Spiritual Enemies
St. Michael the Archangel,
You fully know what we face here and now. We invoke your name, to defend us in battle, and yet, if we shall lose in battle, we already know the war is won. No sacrifice is too great for Him who gave all, beyond our comprehension.
Onward, Christian Soldiers!
