SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, PRAYER

Prayer to Saint Michael

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our defense 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,

thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits,

who prowl about the world

seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

 

 

This prayer was composed in the late 1880’s by Pope Leo XIII after a vision of the spiritual evil Satan would visit on the world in the 20th century.
