Prayer For Help Against
Glorious Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly hosts, who
stands always ready to give assistance to the people of God; who fought with
the dragon, the old serpent, and cast him out of heaven, and now valiantly
defends the Church of God that the gates of hell may never prevail against
her, I earnestly entreat you to assist me also, in the painful and dangerous
conflict which I sustain against the same formidable foe.
Be with me, O mighty Prince! that I may courageously fight and vanquish that
proud spirit, whom you, by the Divine Power, gloriously overthrew, and whom
our powerful King, Jesus Christ, has, in our nature, completely overcome; so
having triumphed over the enemy of my salvation, I may with you 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.
